Alishan Green Heart Oolong is a high mountain oolong crafted from the Qing Xin ‘Green Heart’ cultivar grown at an altitude of over 1,000 metres in Alishan. Large leaves produce a bright, floral liquor. The smooth character has verdant and buttery notes and a clean aftertaste.
Da Hong Pao Special Big Red Robe is a traditional Wu Yi Rock Oolong from the Northern part of Fujian Province in China. The dark leaves produce an amber liquor that has a long lasting, smooth, roasted and stony flavour with sweet notes of exotic flowers.
Dan Cong Mi Lan Xiang from Guangdong Province in China is known for the honey orchid aroma and taste. The dark leaves produce a golden liquor that is light, sweet and fruity with notes of wild honey and exotic flowers.
Gui Fei Oolong is an award-winning rare high mountain oolong from Taiwan. The leaves of this ‘beauty tea’ are nibbled by little green leaf hoppers. This results in a supremely unique wild honey flavour, with sweet, floral and woody notes.
Moc Chau Three Moons Oolong is a complex oolong made from a Qing Xin cultivar and roasted over three months to simulate an aged tea. Tightly rolled leaves produce a golden liquor with a floral aroma. The warming character has roasted floral notes with a tangy aftertaste.
Tie Guan Yin Iron Goddess of Mercy is a renowned light oolong tea that originates from Anxi County in Fujian Province of China. The tightly rolled leaves are light green and have a gentle floral scent. The pale gold liquor has a light flavour with little aftertaste. There are floral buttery notes of green vegetables with a hint of sweet peppers.
Vintage Oolong is our Tea Master’s family reserve oolong that has been expertly aged since 2001. It produces an amber liquor with a fruity and leathery aroma. The smooth fruity profile has complex flavours of tart fruits, tobacco and wood with a wine-like note.
Wen Shan Bao Zhong is an award-winning delightful floral green oolong (pouchong) from Taiwan. Large twisted leaves produce a light liquor with a floral aroma. Similar to a mellow green tea but without any harshness, the taste is smooth with creamy and floral notes.
