Tea was first cultivated in China – originally for medicinal purposes – and its first recorded use was over 3,000 years ago. The major types of tea are distinguished by botanical varieties of the plants and by the processing methods. Green tea leaves are picked and immediately sent to be dried or steamed to prevent oxidation. In contrast, oolong and black teas are left to ferment after they are initially picked, and are transformed via several varying stages, from raw leaves into a tea product.

Green Tea

The most natural and least processed of teas, made from leaves that are not fermented (oxidized) before being dried. The fresh scent is reminiscent of a stroll through a glen in springtime. Green tea is packed with vitamin C.

Jasmine Tea

These green and oolong teas from Fujian province in China are infused with the delicate scent of night-blooming jasmine flowers. If you enjoy jasmine tea, we assure you of a sublime taste that is sweet yet light, with the lingering aroma of freshly picked jasmine flowers.

Black Tea

Highly fermented (oxidized), this is generally stronger in flavor and contains more caffeine than other teas, though less than coffee.

It also has a longer shelf life than most teas. in Chinese, it is known as red tea, perhaps a more accurate description of the liquid’s color. Black tea is internationally recognized for being high in antioxidants and for reducing the risk of heart disease.

High Mountain Oolong Tea

For special occasions, or for the discerning tea drinker. Our premium high mountain teas are a cut above the rest.
Thickened leaves of the finest quality are picked by hand before undergoing the transformation into ball-shaped, emerald-colored Oolong tea in a cool and natural environment. After being brewed with water, the green tea’s sweet and mellow taste and exotic faint fragrance can be enjoyed. The tea is high in antioxidants and great for body detoxification. High mountain teas possess a great aroma and a delicate, sweet floral taste.

What is Yunnan Tea

Yunnan is the name of the Southern Chinese province bordering Vietnam. It’s believed to be the birthplace of tea, and home of the oldest wild growing tea tree (never pruned to be bush height). This tree is estimated to be 1,700 years old!

Da Yu Ling High Mountain Oolong Tea | 大禹岭高山乌龙茶

Da Yu Ling High Mountain Oolong Tea grows at 7,500 – 8,500 feet in the high mountains. The tea is grown surrounded by dense forests, where there is a huge temperature difference between day and night. Owing to the cool climate, tea bushes grow slowly, and the resulting tea leaves are plump and green with warm, smooth traits. In such a deep, clean, high, and cold environment, the cultivated tea is soft, smooth, fragrant, sweet, and freshly flavored. The resulting liquid has a golden and green color, clean and transparent, sending off a natural purifying fragrance.

This tea tends to flow among your teeth, with a fragrance that lingers for a long time. Since it is hand-picked and undergoes only mild fermentation, Da Yu Ling retains the aroma of the original tea forests.

Da Yu Ling is plucked twice a year: in the spring, to be made into tea in mid-May, and in the winter, made into tea in late October.
