You know… we love well made charcoal roasted oolongs  but it’s getting harder and harder to find them. Charcoal roasting requires skills, experience and consciousness.

We believe that heritage style should be promoted – not only for maintaining tradition but because of the taste and aroma it can bring.

This high mountain oolong  comes from garden located near Long  Yan Lin in Ali Shan area. The place famous now from light, low oxidized unroasted oolongs.

Here we offer you something more traditional: high mountain leaves picked in November 2019 were roasted in March 2020 after some time of rest.

This charcoal roasted oolong is quite dark, deep and multilayered. Also perfect candidate for aging.

Here you will find: wood, incense, nuts, toffee, roasted almonds and cereals, fireplace and even hints of vanilla and licorice.



Origin: garden located near Long Yan Lin,  Ali Shan, Jiayi county (Chiayi), Taiwan

Harvest: November 2019

Varietal: Qing Xin (Chin Shin)

Roasting: quite strong charcoal roasting

Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 100 C 5-7g/100ml.

Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, gently pour the boiling water to the pot.  First infusion should be very short- not more than 20-30 second. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing. You can prepare at least 8 nice brewings!

    Just wonderful! I really love these traditional style high mountain teas with a deeply satisfying roasted flavor. This one has a perfect balance in my opinion; warm, roasty, nutty and still sweet and somewhat flowery. Will order a bigger bag for sure!
