Winner- 1st place in the North American Tea Championship
You will taste the difference when you cup this tea! It is rare to find an oolong of this quality presented in a teabag. In selecting our Tieguanyin, we took an unusual approach - opting to use only the highest grade leaves. Once steeped, the aromatic and flavorful taste of this oolong is very evident. The leaves will open to a sweet, floral notes and finish with classic lingering, buttery flavors.
The leaves are low oxidized and a fresh light-green color. They will unfurl (in our large pyramid-style bag) to a large leaf. No milling of the leaf was done.
These elegant sachets are perfect for the traveler or a relaxing cup anytime.

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.
Selected by the finest shops and restaurants
Our award-winning teas are proudly served at these and other fine restaurants, stores and tea shops.
