What Is Taiwan Black Oolong Tea?

Is it Black tea?

Or is it Oolong tea?

Well, it's both.

Black Oolong tea is grown from Oolong tea plants and goes through a secret roasting recipe to give it the aroma and taste commonly found in Black teas.

The best tea leaves are grown above 500 m in elevation, and machine picked from an environmentally friendly tea farm.

Despite being a machine harvested tea, the loose tea leaves have almost no twigs in the packaging.

This is because the loose leaves pass through the twig screener multiple times before further processing.

This way, you get more tea from the same package than you do from other machine harvested teas.

Nutty?

Smells dark and fruity, a bit nutty - there's something in the smell that really makes me think of roasted pistachios. Sweet tasting. The concentrated liquid at the bottom of my brew basket lid after it sat there a while was impressive and really fruity - not bitter at all. Should make a really nice cold brew for summer, I think.

Hi VT, thank you for your informative review. We love the way your describe our Black Oolong.

I love it

This tea is great even for people that usually don't like black tea. I shared this one with my family and they all loved it!

Perfect Blend of Flavors

I'm not a fan of most black teas but this Oolong tea has a more subtle black tea flavor that I really enjoy. ToDoTea does a really good job of describing the teas on their website. There were no twigs in the packaging at all.

Hi Will, Thank you for your comment, we really appreciate it.

Bold unique Oolong

Got a sample of this tea, and others. After all the samples were gone, this is one that I kept thinking about. Bold, not bitter, unique flavor through many gongfu infusions.

Hi Anna, Very glad that you like the Black Oolong. Thank you for your support.
