About Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea and has been an integral part of Chinese culture. It is from the camellia sinensis plant just like green tea and black tea. The difference is the level of oxidation and how they are processed. Oolong tea sits between the two.

Alishan oolong tea is grown in subtropical climates at 1,300 meters above sea level in the Taiwan Alishan area. It is considered one of the best quality oolong teas because of its growing environment, processing skills required, and rare quantity.

Alishan is also known for its humidity, foggy weather, and large temperature differences between day and night. This allows tea leaves to grow at a slow rate, perfectly locking in the humidity, sweetness, and aroma, which makes the tea leaves grown in Alishan soft, refined, and aromatic. Only 2% of the tea in the world is oolong tea, and only 8% come from Alishan, Taiwan.

Each tea leaf is handpicked and harvested by local tea workers. Processing oolong tea requires very specialized skills and experience.

Tea masters will carefully monitor the conditions of tea leaves and ensure each stage of the tea process is well-timed and seamless. The Taiwanese government is also involved in the tea growing process to ensure land sustainability and tea quality.
