Seems like an interesting site, a lot of rare tea. Their Taiwanese oolong section makes me drool. Wouldn`t mind 100g of Alishan Tong Fang Mei Ren and 100g of Qilaishan Long Wu. I`ve read about the Alishan Tong Fang Mei Ren also known as Oriental beauty, it is supposed to be quite exotic, it is pretty expensive though
On a sidenote, I can barely handle all the good tea stores I`ve found through the tea community the last days, I`m gonna go bankrupt
I think it's time to revive this topic.
I tried their Qilaishan Long Wu (Dragon Fog) just this week and it was one of the more amazing teas that I have ever tried. The smell is indescribable, the brew reminds me of a tieguanyin, and the taste is what truly sets this tea apart. Its flavor is very subtle, kind of like whole milk, so I guess you can say it has a certain sweetness and thick mouthfeel, combined with a certain umami.
Qilaishan is the highest mountain in Taiwan. The tea itself is grown at about 2000 meters above sea level. The fog cover and stark temperature changes (as much as 40 degrees from day to night) provide the ideal environment for this truly spectacular tea. As far as I can tell, Seven Cups is the only tea company in the U.S. that sells a Qilaishan tea.
It is truly an amazing tea, and any lover of anxi oolongs or Taiwanese tea in general should try the Qilaishan Long Wu.
