Premium Taiwanese Oolong

Oolong tea from Taiwan has a distinctive, floral-honey taste and sweet aroma that is unique to the teas grown on high elevations in this subtropical island. What’s exciting is oolong tastes different based on the harvest season. Spring and winter harvests have more succulent leaves that give off a crisp and light flavor, thanks to the cold weather and permeating fog. Summer and fall harvests, meanwhile, boast a more floral taste. 

It usually takes a while before oolong leaves can be steeped and in your cup. They need to be sun-dried for hours, lightly “bruised” with a special device, then allowed to oxidize so that its aroma can materialize. But don’t worry, because the Taiwanese oolong tea you get from us will only take 1-3 minutes to prepare.

Preparation: We’ve made things simpler for you by preparing ready-to-steep oolong tea into 100% biodegradable, corn-fiber teabags from Japan.

Soothing, Calming, and Healing

Oolong tea is widely acknowledged to have many health benefits, such as having antioxidants and zero calories (when unsweetened). Early research studies in China and Japan also linked oolong with reduced cholesterol and lowered risks of heart disease. Similarly, there had been studies on its role in preventing obesity and promoting weight loss.

But even without scientific evidence, avid drinkers of oolong tea from Taiwan can already attest to the benefits it brings to the mind and body.

From the first sip, Taiwanese oolong gives a warm and soothing sensation that’s heightened by its fragrant aroma. It has a sweet and sometimes fruity aftertaste that satisfies the palate after you’ve finished drinking your cup. When steeped just right, its light flavor is perfect to be enjoyed on its own or with a bit of chocolate cake. When you have Taiwan-grown oolong, you can look forward to a relaxing afternoon break at home or in your office.
