Tsuei Luan oolong tea (wulong tea) is grown in the Tsuei Luan district of Li Shan (Pear Mountain). This area is a former fruit producing region which was converted to tea plantations in the late 1970's. The soil quality of the former orchards is excellent, and the high altitude (more than 2,000 meters) of this district provides a cool, moist climate - ideal conditions for growing tea.

Tsuei Luan oolong tea has an exquisitely sweet aroma and interesting flavour profile. The slightly floral taste has a definite fruit undertone - said to be the result of growing tea on orchard land. This tea has a very pleasing flavour that makes it one of the most popular teas amongst Taiwan tea connoisseurs.

I've been drinking tea for the last 25 years or so and drink tea all day as it's my favourite drink. This tea has a wonderful fragrance and an even better taste. Now, I usually make one brew from tea leaves and discard it as I hadn't found one that made further brews that were flavoursome enough. However, this is, much to my surprise. I certainly recommend this. This is my new favourite shop for Taiwanese tea. Thank you.

The good quality of this tea cannot be ignored. Have to tell you, I am pleasantly surprised. I normally would not mail order any tea -- I have numerous people there who send me tea and I also travel there as often as I can. We gave you guys a try based only on a certain something we detected in via your Web presence. Very pleased with both the tea and that our hunch about you was correct. Thanks also for the prompt and professional nature of the transaction and communication. Kudos on all that and keep up the great work.

Quite good. I found the taste to be a bit weak but it might just be the way I brewed it. So far I preferred the Shi Zuo.

This was a very good wulong, with a deep and flowery taste, and a lovely sweet aftertaste. I recommend it.
