About This Blend

The tea gardens in this region were originally brought to Taiwan by scholar Lin Fong Chi from Wuyi, Fujian province in the 18th century. Reflecting our internal belief that oolongs should be of lower fermentation (greener), this oolong undergoes a short fermentation to refine the flavour and orchid character. Grown at 800 m elevation, the Tung Ting region is usually covered by fog and clouds which facilitates concentration of flavour.

Your FAQs, Answered
For Imperial Tung Ting Oolong

Oolong teas should be steeped for 2-3 minutes at a temperature of 200°F or 93°C.

Unlike other teas, oolong tea can be re-steeped to make multiple cups. With each re-steep, different flavour characteristics emerge that alter the teas natural palate, creating a new tasting experience for you to enjoy. Oolong teas are exquisite to experience in a yixing tea pot.

Oolong tea does contain caffeine. To illustrate, one would need to drink approximately 4 cups of oolong tea to equal the same amount of caffeine as 1 cup of drip coffee.

All tea, whether it be White, Green, Oolong or Black, comes from the same plant, the evergreen shrub Camellia Sinensis.
