Loose Leaf Oolong Tea

Sort by:

Oolongs offer an appealing range of appearances and aromas that are wonderfully varied, from floral and herbaceous to nectar, honey-sweet and roasted notes. They are processed in a myriad of ways to coax and develop complexity and flavor. Leaf appearances range widely from very large and rolled, long and slender to light green, rich red-brown to nearly black.

The rich flavors of these semi-oxidized teas results from a painstaking process of tumbling or otherwise bruising the surface of the leaves, rolling or twisting the leaves and lastly, firing them to enhance these flavors and then to arrest it. Our oolongs come from provinces of Fujian and Guangdong. From the AnXi Region of Fujian Province, our Tieguanyins and other select varietals such as Ben Shan and Jade Oolong are greener in leaf appearance, lo-oxidized, offering floral aromas and lighter, golden-green infusions. We also offer more traditional, medium oxidized Tieguanyin that is nutty and toasty in flavor.

We offer an extensive selection of Dan Cong style oolongs from Fenghuang, in Guangdong Province. World famous for their nuanced flavors of nectar and fruit, these teas are grown in the highest elevations of the Phoenix Mountains. Made with leaves harvested from trees often hundreds of years old, their roots have grown deep, reaching into mineral rich soils and fresh-water springs creating flavors that are unique and wonderful. We offer a number of these fine oolongs for your enjoyment.

Supporting adults with disabilities

Silk Road Teas is more than just tea. We are committed to giving back to our community by providing jobs packaging our teas to disabled adults. As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.
