Oolong Teas

TUNG TING – Frozen Summit

A celebrated, very flowery, lightly oxidized tea, squeezed when moist into little irregular oval shapes by a special pressing technique. This tea dances with notes of lilac and juniper and is imported directly from the bright slopes of the Tung Ting Mountains.

SHAN LIN XI – High Mountain

This delicious oolong is high grown at approximately 1800 meters and is lightly oxidized and rolled like both Tung Ting and Ali Shan, but offers a creamier mouthfeel with notes of pear. Savor this Gao Shan (high mountain) oolong and feel your cares blow away like a mountain breeze!

GUI FEI

Gui Fei is an aromatic oolong from Nantou County, Taiwan. Its flavor profile is dynamic, containing notes of cedar, stone fruit, and roasted nuts. Like Bai Hao, it belongs to the bug-bitten category of teas. This means that the leaves undergo a live oxidation while still on the stem, whereas oxidation in other teas happens after the leaves have been plucked. This process allows the leaf to develop its famous honey-like flavor and aroma.

ALI SHAN – High Mountain

This high mountain oolong was first discovered on Dobra Tea travels in the Spring of 2005. In the high mountain tea gardens, weather conditions offer plenty of fog and lower temperatures, which are ideal for producing the best oolong tea. The gardens are situated between 1000 and 2300 meters in attitude. Ali Shan oolong offers a sweet fragrance with overtones of flowers and fresh tropical fruit.

BAI HAO (White Hair)
Oriental Beauty

Bai Hao is a darker oolong that is sweet and nicely rounded. It is a superior class of semi-oxidized Fujian type tea, with a higher degree of oxidation and a great abundance of white tips. This tea is soft with flavors reminiscent of chestnuts and honey. Like Gui Fei, it belongs to the bug-bitten category of teas. This means that the leaves undergo a live oxidation while still on the stem, whereas oxidation in other teas happens after the leaves have been plucked.
