Organic Alishan Oolong

There is a reason that Alishan Oolong is famous and this tea is one of the best expressions of 'Alishan' that we have ever found. Bright, floral, sweet, oceanic, and all the other descriptors used for Alishan Oolong can be found within these tightly rolled balls of leaf. Grown on the only organic farm in the Alishan area proper(that we know of), we are proud to stock this tea. It takes guts to grow organically in a place where even conventionally grown tea can be sold with an automatic 50% premium no matter the quality. Supporting friends who do it is one of the reasons why we started this company to begin with!

This Spring 2023 pick had great growing conditions and this tea has all the taste characteristics that fans of this garden love. Sweet, smooth, creamy and that deep floral aftertaste that lasts forever.  If you are a fan of this garden or area we are sure you will enjoy the 2023 pick!

Sweet, fragrant & clean. The taste lingers for a while on the breath and it’s qi is uplifting and airy.

Fragrant tea

Fragrant, light, with a dry after taste.

Nicola Sweetzer-Sturt

Although my order took a little time to wend it's way to the UK, it arrived with samples of two other teas to try. I love Alishan Oolong and was very pleased to find an organic supply. My daughter spent last year in Taiwan and brought me some as a gift. She put me on to your website as I think she met you and wanted me to support your venture, which I will be happy to continue to do.

Delicate and Bright

While I'll be the first to say this tea didn't blow me away, it is very good and has its merits. It doesn't have a strong flavor upfront at all, but the taste really comes through after a second or two and sticks with you. I'm noticing lots of pleasant astringency that's maintaining that flavor. The tea is otherwise lightly floral and delicate, a pleasant drink while I read on a lazy day.
