Additional Information

We've sourced our Jade Oolong loose leaf tea from the township of Zhu Shan ("Bamboo Mountain") in Nantou County, one of the best tea-producing areas in Taiwan. Grown at high altitudes, it has a sublimely light, floral quality.

  • Full Description

    Named for the beautiful jade green colour of the leaf, high-grown “jade oolongs” are known for their creamy, almost buttery taste (very different from roasted "dark" oolongs), crafted with supreme skill by artisan tea tasters.

    The carefully controlled process of partial oxidation allows the leaves to develop a substantial flavour and a slightly fruity fragrance, while preserving the soft, silky taste and texture; and the tightly rolled tea pearls can be brewed multiple times.

TAIWAN

Taiwan has only been producing tea since the mid-17th century, but it's already become world-famous for its extraordinarily complex oolongs – from sweet and buttery varieties grown at high altitudes to darkly roasted oolongs with a robust, nutty taste.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
