About This Blend

The tea gardens in this region were originally brought to Taiwan by scholar Lin Fong Chi from Wuyi, Fujian province in the 18th century. Reflecting our internal belief that oolongs should be of lower fermentation (greener), this oolong undergoes a short fermentation to refine the flavour and orchid character. Grown at 800 m elevation, the Tung Ting region is usually covered by fog and clouds which facilitates concentration of flavour.

Your FAQs, Answered
For Imperial Tung Ting Oolong

Oolong teas should be steeped for 2-3 minutes at a temperature of 200°F or 93°C.

Unlike other teas, oolong tea can be re-steeped to make multiple cups. With each re-steep, different flavour characteristics emerge that alter the teas natural palate, creating a new tasting experience for you to enjoy. Oolong teas are exquisite to experience in a yixing tea pot.

Oolong tea does contain caffeine. To illustrate, one would need to drink approximately 4 cups of oolong tea to equal the same amount of caffeine as 1 cup of drip coffee.

All tea, whether it be White, Green, Oolong or Black, comes from the same plant, the evergreen shrub Camellia Sinensis.

Smooth and relaxing

This is my first oolong tea and it was an amazing experience. The smooth and delicate flavor allows the tea to be paired with any type of food, in any activity of the day.

Good oolong tea

It's my first time trying tung ting oolong and I was not disappointed. It is not too strong but was still good after brewing for a few times. If you like oolong, you should try this one.

Flavourful and delicate oolong

I'm new to the world of oolong and gongfu teas, but I think I'm addicted to oolong now. I bought the sampler pack and was impressed at how pretty it was. When I tried the tea (after improving on my brewing skill), I was impressed how delicate and floral this tea is. It was a refreshing change from the usual black teas like earl grey/english breakfast. I now have a daily cup (or two after resteeping) of oolong and also love that it's not too caffeinated to eep me from sleeping at night or get crashes but just enough to perk me up in the morning.
