Oolong Teas

Not quite black and not quite green, Oolongs are somewhere in between and are remarkable teas.  Called the "philosopher's drink" and "liquid sunshine", many connoisseurs call Oolong Tea their absolute favorite. Oolongs can range from dark brown in leaf appearance to vibrant green.  Their tastes are equally complex – some naturally earthy and smoky while others are sweet with a floral or fruity aroma.

Oolongs are our house favorites and we offer a good range, from mainland China, Formosa and India.  They are excellent with meals and you are sure to find one you love.
