What is Oolong Tea? -
Oolong tea (also recently popularized as Wu long) comes from the same plant as the more familiar green tea or black tea, known in Latin as Camelia sinensis. Oolong tea is distinguished from green teas by the process of semi-fermentation. As soon as farmers harvest the tea leaves, they shake them in large bamboo baskets to bruise the leaves. They spread the bruised leaves in the sun on large tarps and allow them to partially ferment. After the desired degree of fermentation, which can be anywhere from 10% to 80%, the fermentation process is stopped by dry roasting the leaves. This semi-fermentation process gives Oolong tea a very distinctive usually sweet taste, a pronounced aroma in the cup and a beautiful gold or reddish color when brewed.
What are the Oolong Tea benefits? -
Weight Loss Tea -
Oolong tea has received a lot of hype lately as a weight loss tea thanks to the support of some well known celebrities including Oprah Winfrey and Rachel Ray. Much of the hype is well deserved. Studies have shown that, in addition to the metabolic boost from the caffeine, Oolong tea may offer additional help to weight loss by aiding conversion of stored fat and impeding absorption of dietary fat. Oolong tea is particularly rich in catechins which are natural appetite suppressants.
Longevity Tea -
Oolong has been linked to a host of other health benefits including its use as an antioxidant, promoting heart health, clear skin, support of healthy blood pressure and sugar levels and promoting healthier teeth.
Why is our Oolong tea exceptional? -
I found a tea grower at 3,927 feet elevation in the mountains of Northern Thailand who had imported the world famous tea varietal from Taiwan called Jin Xuan. The name translates to English as Golden Lilly and I think the name is aptly chosen. The floral aroma of lilies is immediately noticeable from the first brew through to a 5th or even 6th brewing. To be clear, this is an unscented oolong so no flowers have been added or used to influence the aroma. The lily aroma is natural to this oolong. The tea brews up a beautiful golden color, hence the name Golden Lily. This is considered one of the best in the world. This high quality tea combined with the pure air and water in the Thai highlands results in a beautiful tea. We use only the top bud and harvest only the first two leaves from each bud. We use a 20% - 30% fermentation that results in a beautiful golden, highly aromatic tea with a slightly sweet floral taste, often called Golden Aroma tea.
One of the largest tea companies recently started also offering this oolong. They sell it for over $176 / lb. Our ½ Kilogram package is 1.1 lbs. and sells for just $69. This is your chance to purchase a truly gourmet quality oolong at a bargain price.
Taste: Very forward floral aroma combines with a slightly sweet flavor. A sip closes with just the hint of bitterness that serves only to enhance the sweetness of the next sip.

I adore Oolong tea, it is by far my favourite kind. This is the first time I've ever tried High Mountain Oolong and I was not disappointed. The flavour was rich and smooth. The tea steeped at least 7 times (I stopped after that but it probably could have steeped even more). True to the claims I've read, it had a wonderful effect of regulating body temperature. While caffeinated, I noticed no adverse affects. Overall a wonderful tea I plan on purchasing again in the future.
