Mount Pyrus (Li Shan) is a mountain in Taiwan known to produce juicy pears. Its tea drinks like an early morning walk through a misty mountain vista dotted by fruit orchards. The aroma is vibrant like its pears. Our feet are soft as we pad across dew-drenched grass and the accompanying scent rises to our nose. Taste sweet sugar snap peas, a subtle hint of stovetop mung beans, and notice the long finish.
