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.

  1. Da Yu Ling 1.7 Mile High Oolong Tea

    Da Yu Ling 1.7 Mile High Oolong Tea

    Considered the best 'Jade' or green oolong made in the world. Its aromatic notes of peach and apple are noticed both in the mouth and nose whilst the high content of healthy amino acids ensure a natural nectar-like sweetness. Our customers have noticed flavours such as floral, macadamia butteriness, honey, caramel and peaches. As with all the best Oolong teas, it can be hours later that these marvellous qualities are still being revealed on the palate. This batch is from the very highest point in the garden from the premium crop, in Spring. Learn More

  2. Milky Gabalong Oolong Tea

    Milky Gabalong Oolong Tea

    This Gabalong Oolong tea is grown on an organic farm in Nantou, Taiwan and has almost twice as much GABA content than is required to be classified as Gaba tea. It is made from leaves picked in the 'Deer Valley' in Taiwan. It has an incredibly rich flavour in the cup. Notes of caramel toffee are complemented by the ripe fruit flavours like cooked apples. There are also hints of chocolate and mountain flower notes that flicker in the cup as it cools. This is in turn enhanced by adding milk flavouring to give the distinctive, creamy cup 'Milk' oolong is desired for. Learn More
