Oolong Tea

Perhaps the most revered of teas, oolongs offer a delightful range of styles, flavors and aromas. 

We offer a wide variety of single-origin oolongs, in richly rewarding flavors and aromas. Our teas offer flavors of flowers, herbs, nectar & honey-sweet; to rich flavors of roasted almonds and fruity notes and flowery aromas. Our oolongs are crafted traditionally with a focus to appearance and taste. We offer low-oxidized to medium and high oxidized Tieguanyin styles; to a number of prized Dan Cong style oolongs from the tea-famous Phoenix Mountains.

We are proud to offer rare lots of Dan Cong oolongs we have aged for over 20 years. These are exceptional lots offering a wide selection of leaf styles, flavors and aromas. Please inquire for availability.
