A lightly oxidized un-rolled Taiwanese oolong, flavored with the highly perfumed orange tree blossoms. These sweet tangy blossoms provide a nice compliment to the toasted nutty tastes of a good oolong. With just a touch of orange essence oil added, it is easy to imagine one is drinking tea in a Florida orange grove in mid-spring.

This Four Season Oolong is grown in Taiwan's Nantou region at an altitude between 600 - 800m; Nantou as a region produces a lot of green teas and oolong in Taiwan. Nantou is also known for its Dong Ding Oolong. Because of its lower altitude, the teas there are often a little more bold than some of the higher mountain teas. The Four Season Oolong is a more lightly fermented oolong and has a nice extended finish. Nantou is in the central region of Taiwan where the mountains really jump up out of the land creating a beautiful landscape.

4 Seasons is named after the 4 Seasons cultivar. This cultivated variety is known for producing flushes all year round with a mellow fresh green sweetness. 4 seasons of spring!

With a light floral tastes, this Four Seasons Oolong gives a full mouth feel with a nice clean finish.
Oolongs are the most difficult tea to make. An in-between class of teas, neither green nor black, Oolongs are also the most flexible of teas. Really the skill of the tea master shines the best.

Picked using larger leaves than with other traditional teas, Oolongs usually exhibit strong floral and butter aromas. Our Dong Ding Oolong has a unique floral element with toasted sun flower seeds with a macadamia nut sweetness. Our Dong Ding is sourced from Nantou, near the Lugu Township, and is hand harvested. With a 30% oxidation; this oolong is quite fresh and pleasant.
Ruby Red Black Tea
Ruby Red Black Tea
Our Price: $15.50
Also known as Red Jade, Hong Yu, Ruby 18, or Sun Moon Lake. This is one of the premier black teas from Taiwan. This cultivar, Ruby (TTES No. 18), is a cross between a Taiwanese wild grown tea tree (most likely an Camellia Sinensis sinensis) and a Camellia Sinensis assamica. This mixtures of tea most likely originated during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan. A modern tea cultivar for the modern Taiwan. Hand harvested and processed from the heart of the tea growing region of Taiwan.

The resulting brew is a big leaf, flavorful brew with plum like notes and a delicious wintergreen eucalyptus notes. Similar to our Amba OP1, this tea we think brews better in a gaiwan and has a softer more floral note that keeps on lasting.
