Description

This 30-year aged Oolong tea is from our tea house’s private stash. This aged tea is highly valued in Taiwan and China due to its rarity and matured flavour. For example, the aged Pu’er tea (老普洱茶).

It is a common misconception that teas will improve in taste as they get older, however top quality aged teas can only mature under controlled conditions throughout the maturation process:

  1. Temperature, humidity, air flow, elimination of odours and sunlight all are factors that will affect the maturation process
  2. The quality of the tea itself. If the tea is bad to begin with, then the ageing process is not going to improve in flavour. So only top quality made teas will be stored for long periods of time.

Our Oolong Old Master is the renowned Dong Ding Oolong 凍頂烏龍 – Thirty years ago Don Ding Oolong tea was the best in Taiwan. Don Ding is a mountain located in Lugu township in the southwest Nantou County.

  • Oolong Spring Green from Shan Lin Xi has distinctive clean taste and body with lingering flavour, and a crisp fresh aroma. Brewed tea is in clear light green which carries its spring taste.
  • Oolong Half-Way is half roasted Oolong tea. Compared to our Oolong Spring Green, Oolong Half-Way has an earthier and more robust taste with hints of a roast nutty character. The reddish brown brewed tea indicates a deeper flavour that has more body. It’s a championship tea on many levels.
  • Oolong Old Master is a full roast over charcoal which contributes to its mature aroma with nutty, honey and caramel taste with lingering flavour. The body is incredibly smooth and gentle. It is suitable for someone who has a sensitive stomach.

There are approximately 1,500 types of tea in the world, however at ZiYo we only stock a basic tea selection that barely scratches the surface of the tea world.

Unfortunately there are many poor quality teas on the market, none of which are worth drinking. A poor quality tea may give you warmth, caffeine and flavour from anything you add to it (sugar and milk, for example).

The flavour of a good quality teas is very noticeable and is believed to have many health benefits. Our premium high mountain tea in particular is renowned for its cleansing, and detoxification properties. It effectively helps prevent diabetes and cancers. It is believed that it helps slow down the ageing process. Moreover, aged teas are twice as effective than any ordinary teas.

In addition to all the benefits mentioned above, a genuine premium high mountain Oolong tea has a clean flavour that will not add any burden to your body. So if you are feeling stressed from work or if you just feel a little guilty from having a greasy, high calorie meal a cup of premium Oolong tea can help alleviate the stress put on your body and your digestive system.

Brewing Suggestions :

Always brew tea to your own taste, adjust the amount of tea used until you find the right flavour/strength balance that is to your own taste. The size of the teapot, water quality, and water temperature all have an affect on the brewing results. Below are some guidelines you can use to get started

  • 3g of tea for a small teapot (150ml). A little goes a long way, usually you can refill your tea pot with hot water up to 5 times
  • Brewing in a mug, use less than 5g of tea, usually you can do up to 3 pourings with same leaves.
