Four Season Oolong Tea

Four Season Oolong Tea

Fast service, wonderful tea. I see other places advertising similar tea for a much higher price, but this is the real stuff~! and the prices are very reasonable.
It's hard to keep from going overboard when ordering teas, there's so many flavors and types. It's also interesting to know what area the teas are from and a bit about about them. I've tried several different sample packs as well as larger orders, and enjoy each different tea. Four Seasons is one of my favorites....

Tan-Bei Whole Leaf Oolong Tea Bags

Lovely tea. Delicate though so if you like more of a punch don't get these. But for a surprisingly good grade of tea for a tea bag (with triangular nylon bags for decent expansion) when too busy (impatient!) to do a brew, recommended....

This is a wonderful tea for every day. Ali-shan teas are always a good bet and this is a great one. And as usual fantastic delivery service from TeasfromTaiwan. Delivered fast and they remembered all the complicated shipping detail requests needed for sending to us here in Spain. V. pleased I found this site....

Zhong Shu Hu Oolong Tea

Zhong Shu Hu Oolong Tea

I think this is the perfect Oolong. It is perfectly balanced between astringency and fruit making it refined on the palate. It seems to just slip down the throat. It's remarkable that a tea can make your mouth feel clean and fresh. A must on everyone's try list....

Four Season Oolong Tea

Four Season Oolong Tea

A tea for all seasons is Four Seasons. A remarkable tea. It should be drunk a little weak or it can become too tangy. Keep the water temperature a little cool. I tasted crisp, green apples which will be lost if too hot. This is a very pleasant tea and highly recommended. It has a definite fruity dimension that lingers on the tongue. This is a nice tea to consume after a hearty meal....

Amazing... one of the most incredible teas I've had this season. Found that it peaked at about 4 pours- however it was still delicious at 8 pours....

This was good on the first two pours- it looses its luster by the third. The Hua Gang has better staying power and is nearly the same price....

Its have a wonderful color and a very good taste. One can use the same leafs to do 3 cups. After opening the bag one need to use it relatively soon, because its change the taste and quality very soon....

Aged Oolong Tea

Aged Oolong Tea

I can't help myself with this tea. The smell is overpowering, too much cinnamon, medicine herbs and camphor. The taste is not bad and quite mellow, but the smell is so distracting I can't really drink it....
 by Dimitry A.


Hua Gang Oolong Tea

Hua Gang Oolong Tea

Another great tea, the best of selection together with Wu Ling. Compared to Wu Ling it is less floral and more nutty, but equally lovely. Again, as Wu Ling it doesn't like very hot water, I suggest almost green tea temperatures - 75-80 degrees Celsius. I have only brewed it in gaiwan, I think it is too delicate for yixing....

Four Season Oolong Tea

This is a very good tea for it's price. I tend to buy this tea in bulk because this a really good daily tea. I find this spring's crop a bit lacking in complexity and fruity overtones compared to previous crops, but still good. I look forward to taste the winter tea....

Aged Oolong Tea

Aged Oolong Tea

This tea is like no other I've tasted. Sweet and complex. It has been roasted from time to time so the flavor is somewhat smokey and the leaves don't open up that much. I like to drink this tea at night because it doesn't affect my sleep. Somehow I always think of whiskey when I drink it....
 by Sverrir Á.


Hua Gang Oolong Tea

Hua Gang Oolong Tea

In my view this tea, together with Wu Ling, is the best in the collection. Hua Gang has a soft, pleasant flavour and smell, to me the finest in the selection here. Be careful not to pour too hot water on the tea, somewhere between 85 and 95 degrees is best....

Da Yu Ling Oolong Tea

Da Yu Ling Oolong Tea

As one of the more expensive tea's offered, I would offer that it is worth every penny. I have tried many different teas at all price levels, and Da Yu Ling Oolong clearly outshines each of them. You know it as soon as the aroma starts to waft up from the pot. The flavor is unforgettable, and reminds you of the saying, "You get what you pay for"....

Four Season Oolong Tea

Four Season Oolong Tea

A really fine tea. I was really pleased with this purchase. We drink it after lunch. For my wife and I its a moment of peace in a busy day and the tea, and the making of it, has become something of a ritual. We use the gong fu teapot (14) which is just right for 2 people and we find we can make about 4-5 pots of tea from one set of leaves. Wonderful....

Tsuei Luan Oolong Tea

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....

Da Yu Ling Oolong Tea

Da Yu Ling Oolong Tea

No wonder the price increases each year for true Da Yu Ling tea, not only that this tea is from one of the highest elevation plantation in the world, but it is also unique and best among high mountain oolongs. This is the most oily, coating the mouth, and it is increadibly smooth tea. This version is the light fired, light oxidised green version, I had this year the high fired version, both were stellar....
 by Nagy S.


Long Feng Xia Oolong Tea

Long Feng Xia Oolong Tea

This tea is along with the Da Yu Ling the best that Taiwanese high mountain oolong can offer, specially this Lung Feng Hsia region produces strong and aromatic tea, I am brewing it with a Lin`s cermaic kettle and red yixing dhp clay from fudong, and this tea is fenomenal, it has a lingering aftertaste and a great body, after you had a few cups you can feel the aroma lingering in your breath for a while....
 by Nagy S.


Aged Oolong Tea

Aged Oolong Tea

Good heavens! I mean to say... good heavens! I must shamefully admit I never drank a tea like this one. It's really different and I really like it.

The taste in first infusion is indeed very chestnut-like. From the second infusion onward, there is also very strong dark chocolate tone (other than you might be used from red tea or finer shu puerh). And nougat taste is present too. The taste is not honey-like, but it is very sweet. The sweetness on the tongue lingers quite a long time. The tea is really powerful... even when I take a very little sip, my mouth is filled with strong and complex taste.

This is not a tea for everyone I think. But it is a tea for me :-)...

One cannot match loose tea for flavor and spirit but these oolong tea bags are so convenient,and have the best taste of any I have had before. I always keep some handy now. They also make for an excellent gift to a co-worker just getting interested in oolong tea....

Shi Zuo Oolong Tea

Shi Zuo Oolong Tea

This is one of my favorite teas so far, after I have tried at least 4-5 different varieties. The tea has a very complex flavor that is almost magical in every sip. It is also very sweet and comforting. I absolutely love it....

Wu Ling Oolong Tea

Wu Ling Oolong Tea

This tea is very good. One has to be careful in measuring. My standard was too large and tea became bitter with nor much flavor. Got it right now with 1 teaspoonful for 120 ml pot and 6 infusions....
 by Peter H.


Long Feng Xia Oolong Tea

Long Feng Xia Oolong Tea

Long Feng Xia is yet another splendid tea from Taiwan. The flavor is silky smooth with a natural honeyed sweetness bordering on perfection. In addition to the wonderful taste, the fragrance is beyond compare. This is a tea rich with romance, delivering a bouquet with its floral aroma. My only disappointment is that I can't figure out how to bottle the fragrance, so I can wear it as a cologne....
 by Ashton D.


Wu Ling Oolong Tea

Wu Ling Oolong Tea

After trying all the teas from the Chong Pei sample pack and a sample of Da Yu Ling, I can say without reservation, the Wu Ling is by far my favorite. Do not be mislead by its lower price, this is a superb tea. The Wu Ling Oolong has a mild, yet complex flavor that is both relaxing and invigorating to drink. Its subtlety and freshness are balanced by the perfect level of astringency. Highly recommended....

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....

It’s an excellent tea. I brew it with gongfu tea pot. It’s has beautiful clear yellow color, hard to describe fancy fragrant and sweet aftertaste. In second and third brewing the color became more darker but the taste is still hold....

A wonderfully refined, delicate tea with a fruity flavor reminiscent of dried apples. 6 infusions? I stopped at 9 and it wanted to give more!! A long sweet finish. This is what Taiwanese Oolong is all about....

Feng Fu Sample Pack

Feng Fu Sample Pack

Until now I've tried five samples and I'm overall very satisfied...

When I finish with all samples - I will reorder some oolongs which taste the best to me. "Long Feng Xia" and "Wu Ling" are both very delicious... truly some of the best oolongs I've tried.

I have already told some friends about your shop - and maybe they will make an order too ;)...

This is excellent tea. I have been importing tea for my personal use since I returned from living in Taiwan in the early 90s, and I think yours is the best I've come across from a retail outlet....

Wu Ling Oolong Tea

Wu Ling Oolong Tea

Your Wu Ling is excellent tea. I have been a fan of high quality green oolongs for more than a decade. I have found from experience that there are great taste differences even among the best of these teas.

I am glad I found your business on the web and look forward to placing additional orders as I consume my current supply....

Zhong Shu Hu Oolong Tea

Zhong Shu Hu Oolong Tea

Excellent tea. My business partner is snobby about Li Shan tea, and didn't believe we could import real Ali Shan from Taiwan. He had to brew it twice trying to prove it couldn't be as good as what he'd gotten from his farmer friend. But it was obviously top quality. Our secretary's brother is a tea importer. She couldn't believe the price....

Dong Ding Ming Xiang Oolong Tea

Dong Ding Ming Xiang Oolong Tea

Dong Ding is also known in Japan as takayama (tall mountain) and is not easy to find. Oolong of this sort is not very popular in Japan, but is well known to experts and it is there that I learned this to be the best variety of semi-green (partially fermented) tea. The Dong-Ding from 'Tea from Taiwan' is the strongest and most well flavored one I have tried (out of about 5 different sources) and is also quite reproducible, in other words, the same brewing procedure yields the same tea time after time.
Since this tea is tightly packed 'leaf balls', it is quite appropriate to vacuum pack it, which is done, and I think this helps retain its unique flavor....

I tried the aged oolong yesterday and have to report that it's the best aged tea I've ever tried. I had one in Taiwan about 15 years ago and loved it, but thought it was a puer from China at the time. Since then I've tried perhaps 100 puers both here and in Beijing and never found what I was looking for....

OMG the Long Feng Xi is exceptional, usually Taiwanese tea is strong on fragrance and weak on aftertaste, as compared to "rock tea" from mainland China. However, the Long Feng Xi and Wu Ling satisfy both requirements....
