    Enjoy Fall with New Oolong Teas!

    What a pleasure to enjoy the above sight with two new oolong teas from Taiwan. The first one is a Dong Ding oolong tea. This highly regarded semi-oxidized and roasted oolong is competition grade and it shows! We drink it gong fu style and through multiple steeps it offers layers of fruity sweetness that turns floral slowly. The roast is perfect - just enough to evoke and sustain a warm coziness in the heart even long after you have finished the tea.

    Alishan Qingxin Oolong: Spring and Winter

    Enjoy this blog post contributed by one of our regular customers, Kyle Trenshaw. 

    As I am sure many of the folks who are reading this can relate, I buy too much tea, far more than I can actually drink by myself in a reasonable amount of time. Because of this tendency, I found myself with both the Spring 2020 and Winter 2020 harvests of the Alishan Jin Xuan that Niraj stocks.

    Dong Pian (Winter Petal) Oolong

    They call it the “winter petal.”  Dong Pian, in Chinese. The unexpected juxtaposition of the name lured me with its poetic charm. Behind the poetry lay a compelling story. A tea such as this could not be passed.

    Know your Alishan Jin Xuan

    Jin Xuan oolong, also popularly called “Milk Oolong,” is made from a relatively new cultivar of tea developed by the Taiwan Tea Research and Extension Station (TRES) in 1981. The tea is fragrant and coats the palate with a creamy sweetness that is highly satisfying. It is easy to steep and relatively inexpensive for a high-mountain oolong. No wonder it is one of the most popular oolongs in Taiwan.

    A Tea Master's Oolong

    Oolong Tea

    Happy New Year!

    As promised here is the first of exciting new things we are unveiling this year - a very special line of oolongs from Taiwan selected by a local Tea Master who we have known for nearly 10 years.  Over the years, we've had endless discussions about tea and swapped our favorites teas.  And last summer, we had the good fortune of meeting him while on a tea teaching mission to America.  He has generously shared his passion and extensive knowledge of oolongs.  And now with great excitement, we are proud to offer a very special collection from A Tea Master's Oolong.
