The creme de la creme of Taiwanese oolongs, hands down.
Grown at over 2500 meters, this tea is known as the queen of all oolongs in Taiwan. Grown on Pear Mountain at one of the highest tea gardens in the world.
Slow growth from high altitude gives this tea a deep flavor, with many layers. Buttery sweetness, and long lasting floral notes. Also, can be steeped 6+ times! Produced from the chin shin oolong cultivar.
This is a great, clean, fresh, evocative lot. Very limited. We got less than three kilos of this!

Water: 195°F | Leaves: 1.5 -2 teaspoons per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes
Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time.
Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling weight. It activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglycerides. Studies have confirmed that a 2-3 cup per day intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and controlling obesity.
