Sunset High Mountain Oolong Black Tea is Chimney & Tea’s secret indulgence. This tea is co-created by tea farmers and tea jassids, as tea farmers discovered tea leaves bitten by tea jassids tend to be sweeter and produce tea that has a unique milk and honey-like aroma.
Grown in Alishan (Ali mountain) at 1,300 meters above sea level in Taiwan, the tea bag quickly releases the essence of the mountain into the hot water in your thermos (or mug). Sunset High Mountain Oolong Black Tea has a rich, earthy taste, smokey and honey-like aroma profile, and long-lasting naturally sweet aftertaste that will linger around in your palate with every sip.
Oolong black tea contains l-theanine, antioxidants, and less caffeine than coffee, making it a great alternative to help you relax while elevating your energy during the day.

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 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.
