What is oolong tea?

Oolong Tea is a traditional semi-oxidised Chinese tea category. It produces through a process including withering the plant under strong oxidation. Among all the origins, Taiwanese Oolong Tea is famous for the premium high mountain Oolong Tea. But, are you wondering why Taiwan produces higher grade teas?

Firstly, it’s about weather and geographic conditions.  Taiwan’s climate is very variable during four seasons.  Besides, it has many high, steep mountains with diverse weather conditions. Moreover, the altitude and soil are different too.  These factors cause differences in tea leave appearance, aroma, and it gives the tea multiple flavours.

Carefully hand-selected using only the most delicate leaves, this tea offers a deliciously golden-yellow liquor with the most wonderful jasmine-sweet flavour. What’s more, it provides the most refreshing and satisfying infusion, which suits any time of the day.
