china oolongs

Chinese oolongs go back in history many centuries. They can be light, delicate, sweet, almost floral (TeaSource Oolong), and they can also be dark and rich (Big Red Robe). They provide a huge range of flavor possibilities, all of them wonderful.

Big Red Robe Oolong

Big Red Robe Oolong

This legendary tea is very rich and smooth with dark, almost molasses-like undertones. Legend has it that when a monk first gave the emperor this tea, the emperor loved it so much that he gave the monk a special gift of a scarlet robe.

Big Red Robe Supreme

Big Red Robe Supreme

2 oz. $35.40

This exceptional tea is composed of gorgeous large leaves with an enticing sweet aroma. It steeps up light to medium bodied, but with tremendous balance and flavor complexity, encompassing: a slighlty sweet pluminess, a creamy texture, a spring-like grassiness, and a lovley hint of a toasty/mineraly quality (think rock oolong) at the end. A phenomenal and rare tea.

Only available in 2 ounce quantities.

Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong

Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong

4 oz. $6.29

This is an absolutely wonderful Ti Kwan Yin style oolong from Fujian, China, done in the classic style. The modern trend is for Ti Kwan Yin to be a little sweeter and a little greener. This tea definitely has some sweetness, but that is perfectly balanced by just a tiny bit of baking of the leaf. The aroma and steeped liquor deliver a marvelous blend of sweet and toasty with a flavor reminiscent of roasted pine nuts.

This lovely oolong from the Fujian Province of China is known as Se Chung ("Colorful Variety") and is on the greener side of oolongs. It steeps up sweet, silky, light to medium-bodied, with a hint of a lovely fresh floral taste and aroma. Good for multiple infusions.

This tea has an aromatic, slightly fruity flavor with a taste reminiscent of fresh plums, with just a little toastiness in the aftertaste.

Ti Kwan Yin Emerald

Ti Kwan Yin Emerald

4 oz. $29.47

An extremely sweet aromatic oolong from Anxi County, Fujian. It is a complex cup, with elements of fruit/honey and a prominent silky/satiny texture. This is not a light cup of tea. It has a complex, multi-hued flavor profile with a lovely lingering creamy note in the aftertaste. We always sell out of this great tea.
