taiwan/formosa oolongs

Oolongs were first produced in Taiwan in the 19th century, importing the knowledge and plants from the Fujian Province of China. Today some people (but not the Chinese) feel Taiwan produces the finest oolongs in the world. We tend to source our Taiwan oolongs from small family farms, located throughout the island.

Amber Oolong

Amber Oolong

4 oz. $23.87

This is a world class Taiwanese baked oolong from the mountains of central Taiwan. They begin with very high grade Tung Ting style tea, then through a tea master's baking of the leaf they add layers of flavors. So you get a tea with the sweet honey notes of a lighter oolong, with layers of darker, richer, slightly toasty flavors. What makes this such an amazing tea is you get all these flavors in the same swallow.

Brandy Oolong

Brandy Oolong

4 oz. $12.97

This Nantou County oolong is a lovely medium to strong tea that steeps up a shimmering amber hue, with a great stone fruit aroma. The liquor is silky smooth, and sweet-with hints of honey and mineral, and slightly reminiscent of the extremely rare Ruby 18.

Formosa Oolong, Choicest

Formosa Oolong, Choicest

4 oz. $13.97

This tea possesses the classic oolong flavor: medium-bodied, smooth, a slight fruitness and toastiness in the finish. Delicious.

Green Dragon Oolong

Green Dragon Oolong

4 oz. $15.97

One of the nicest Tung Ting style oolongs. It is very silky, medium-bodied with sweet, fruity notes, and a lovely lingering aftertaste. Great for multiple steepings.

Jade Beauty Oolong

Jade Beauty Oolong

2 oz. $28.75

A wonderfully complex Tung Ting style oolong from Nantou County, Taiwan. This tea has been visited by the "green leaf hopper" insect (like Oriental Beauty) so it has that characteristic honey note. It also has sweet, spicy, slightly toasty tastes and a long lingering aftertaste. One of the best oolongs we've tasted in a while.

Only available in 2 ounce quantities.

Jade Oolong

Jade Oolong

4 oz. $11.97

Longevity Oolong

Longevity Oolong

4 oz. $18.89

This baked Ti Kwan Yin style oolong has been preserved and rebaked for each of the last four years. This produces a leaf that is almost coal-black and the steeped cup is dark, toasty, very smooth, and slightly fruity and sweet.

Milk Oolong, Traditional

Milk Oolong, Traditional

4 oz. $24.97

This famous Taiwan tea delivers a cup that is sweet, fresh, slightly floral, with light creamy notes. Those creamy notes are where the name "milk oolong" comes from, there are no other ingredients besides tea: made from the Jin Suang cultivar.

Oriental Beauty Supreme

Oriental Beauty Supreme

2 oz. $24.40

Taiwan's queen of teas, this is a wonderful lot of Oriental Beauty: aromatic and perfectly balanced with notes of honey, fruit, a slight toastiness, and a rich, complex lingering aftertaste. It's kind of like drinking a rainbow: light, dark, and everything pleasing in-between.

Only available in 2 ounce quaitities.

Tung Ting Oolong

Tung Ting Oolong

4 oz. $6.27

This classic tea from the mountains of central Taiwan is sweet, silky, and floral. This is a "greener" oolong, meaning it is a little lighter and not very toasty. It delivers multiple steepings of a delicious cup.
