WenShan Elegant originates from a tea garden nestled within the mountains surrounding PingLin. It is made by Mr. Zhong, a 3rd generation tea maker who excels in both nationwide and local tea competitions.
As a hot brew, the tea is a soft yellow-green color. The elegant fragrance you smell blossoms like a flower inside your mouth. The tea has a full body but is also light and delicate. The fragrance and sweetness lingers for a surprisingly long time. (Because this tea is quite delicate, please experiment with shorter steeping times when you first try this tea.)
Though wonderful as a hot tea, this tea's elegant taste and fragrance truly shines as a cold-brew drink. The cold-brew tea tastes so pure and refreshing. And it is SO EASY to make!
Fragrance plays a critical role in enjoying High Mountain oolong teas. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest that you consume the tea within 2-3 weeks of opening.
