The spectacular landscape of Taiwan produces some of the world’s best oolongs – those special, semi-oxidised teas that sit somewhere between the categories of green and black. Whether it’s dark, rich and creamy or golden, sweet and honeyed, our range fine Taiwanese oolong teas showcases all their incredible quality and diversity.
About our Taiwanese Oolongs<
From the high peaks of Taiwan to its low rolling hills, we have criss-crossed this beautiful country to bring you a collection of exceptional premium oolongs (yes, it’s a tough job!). Taiwan’s many microclimates and different elevations are perfectly suited to oolong’s idiosyncratic personality – this, after all, is a tea of a thousand nuanced incarnations.
Sourced from artisanal farmers, each tea in our Taiwnese oolong collection has its own unique story to tell… Like Oriental Beauty, which achieves the perfect sweetness through being nibbled by tiny green leafhopper insects. Or our high-mountain Ali Shan, grown organically at 1500m by a wonderful farmer, Mr Shien, who plays classical music to his plants in the firm belief it helps them produce a better flavour.
Whatever your taste, we invite you to browse our collection and savour the joys of the finest Taiwanese oolongs.
