Jade Oolong is a highly prized green oolong tea from Nantou county, Taiwan. Similar to Dong Ding, this tea is beautifully deep green in appearance with large, tightly rolled leaves. Once infused, the lightly oxidised leaves gradually unfurl to release their essential oils revealing complex aromatics. Jade Oolong tea is known for its fresh green-floral character, sweet flavour and clean, delicate mouthfeel.

This tea contains a moderate level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 3-5 minutes.

fresh from origin

Formosa, meaning 'beautiful island', is what Dutch traders called Taiwan. The teas grown here, mainly north of Taipei, continue to be called as such. Tea can be harvested up to six times a year here, although the high mountain teas may be only twice a year. Oolong tea had been a very important export for the island until the 1980's, when tea growers turned their focus to native oolong enthusiasts. Today, oolong tea is mainly produced for tea lovers in Taiwan, and the rarest, most prized lots are extremely difficult to find in the West. Tea culture is so alive and well in Taiwan, annual competitions are held amongst tea growing districts to reward the most outstanding oolongs each year. Gold medal winning oolongs are some of the most expensive in the world.
