Our Alishan Black Oolong is made from the same leaves as our Better High Mountain Oolong but it is oxidized more and roasted over and over at higher temperatures. Black oolong contains no caffeine or tannins making it a great choice for children, the elderly, and pregnant women. With an aromatic scent and refreshing taste, black oolong is recommended for drinking after a fatty meal. The taste is similar to Japanese Hojicha.
Grown at 1400 meters, our Better High Mountain Oolong spend every day in the cold, cloudy mist that settles on the mountain. The temperature and short average sunshine make the leaves and buds tender, and give high-mountain teas special characteristics such as a golden-yellow color and sweet taste and aroma that endures repeated brews. Like most of our teas, the tea changes, improves, and refines with each subsequent brewing.
Many people get stomachaches after drinking tea, without realizing that this is a sign of the quality of tea. Our taiwanese high-mountain oolong is low in caffeine and is free of chemicals that can irritate the stomach. You can easily drink this tea on an empty stomach.
