Alishan Oolong

Spring Pick 2024 

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 2024 pick is a little more vegetal than last year's and has a deeper, more grounded taste profile. It is vegetable broth sweet, smooth, creamy and has that deep floral aftertaste that lasts and lasts.

Loved the 2022-sorry I missed this!

Eagerly awaiting the 2024 offering of this very special tea. The 2022 is exactly as described; about to use it up and want more!

It's a winner!

Buttery florals indeed, this is exactly as advertised and a delicious organic tea.

Michael Perfetto

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.

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.
