Taiwanese Tea

Taiwanese Teas | Imperial Teas

An interesting variety of high quality teas are grown on the island of Taiwan on Chinese bushes planted three hundred years ago. The most famous of which are the type known as 'Oolong'. These partially oxidised teas with gentle, smooth and rounded liquor and alleged health benefits offer varied characteristics to their Chinese counterparts. This is partly due to the island's famous 'Yellow' soil and many micro-climates but also to the impeccable care taken to process the leaves and the great variety of strains of tea bush used. They are split into two types, 'Amber' which produce a darker though very smooth infusion and 'Jade', which are greener and can be brewed many times over. Both are exquisite teas with characters ranging from subtle floral notes to hints of fruit flavours and aromas and are very relaxing. Although some of these teas fetch some of the highest prices in the world they are surprisingly economical as they can be rebrewed 7-8 times! Taiwan produces the best oolong tea in the world. It's unique growing environment is due to both its geographical position and its mountainous terrain. This year I have also been introduced, by Taiwan's premier grower, to some delightful and little known 'Black' and 'White' teas and can very much recommend giving them a try. I have also learned this year that Taiwan's tea culture, varieties and history are worthy of a book to themselves and have opened up a whole new voyage of discovery for myself. Anyway, our collection truly contains the best teas of each type found in Taiwan and until we recently imported them, only to be found in Taiwan.

  2. Earl Grey Divine

    Earl Grey Divine

    The addition of a small amount of special oil of bergamot from the variety of this fruit grown in Taiwan adds another layer that makes this one our most distinguished Earl Grey teas, one that offers a complexity not usually found in scented teas. This bergamot has a different flavour to our classic top quality Italian oil used to flavour our other Earl Grey varieties. The base tea is Golden Lily, a black tea famous for its creamy, milk-like aroma, which complements the rich body and transfers into the flavour with a caramel taste. As well as being rich in flavour it is also heavy with theaflavins, exhibited after cooling, when they emulsify to create a milky appearance. Jin Xuan translates as Golden Day Lily and this tea is as fragrant as the flower, with a fruity, floral lingering finish. Learn More
