Oolong tea, sometimes known as blue tea, is part fermented and this one - tung ting - takes its name from the mountainous region in Taiwan where it is grown. This area is regarded by those who know about this kind of thing - us included - as one of the finest around. We’re very proud to be able to offer a genuine oolong tea, as these teas are mostly sold to the local Taiwanese at hundreds of dollars – a bit more pricey than your average cuppa, but worth every penny.
— Louise, Tea Taster at Teapigs

how does it taste?

Oolong tea sits between green and black. This tea will deliver the strength of a black tea, with the aromatic, flowery flavours of a green tea. Green tea is for now, but tung ting will be the next big thing.

good if you're feeling

a little blue. No, really. This is yoga for the mind, without the embarrassing leotard or spine-cracking back bends. Oolong, like green tea, is reputed to keep you skinny and young. Let’s hope it’s true.

how we like it

As it comes - this tea is simply stunning, get out your very best cup and saucer and enjoy!

Iced

Just cover one tea temple with water just off the boil and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water. 

brew time

  • Tea temple - 1 per person. Infuse in boiling water. Brew for 3+ minutes.
  • Loose tea - 2 rounded teaspoonfuls per person. Brew for 3+ minutes.

Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it.
