Alishan Tan Pei Oolong Tea is a roasted Oolong Tea from Taiwan's Alishan tea district.

Tan Pei Oolong Tea has a distinctive roasted quality is evident in the aroma of the dry tea leaves right through to the brewed tea. It is a full-bodied tea with a robust flavor and dark liquor.

This tea is from the famous Alishan tea district of central Taiwan. The climate is cool and moist year-round, making it ideal for producing top-quality oolong tea. The region's fertile soil also supports a wide variety of vegetable and fruit farming.

Tan Pei Oolong Tea is hand-picked and hand-processed. It is classed as a high-mountain tea (Gao Shan) - meaning it is grown above 1,000 meters.

This is a pleasing tea any time of the year, but is especially suitable for the cooler weather of fall and winter.

Customer Reviews:


by Alexander H.
This tea was absolutely wonderful, though I'll say that it's something to experience periodically rather than have regularly. It's something of a bracing tea, the word I would use is "musty," but not in a bad way, more like an old book or preserved castle. Its flavor progressed wildly through the steeps, and I managed to get twelve delicious steeps out of it, each different from the last. Go for this one, it's very worth it.
