We are excited to present our designer gift sets that offer a selection of quality unroasted and roasted Oolongs, as well as Alishan High Mountain Black Tea. These fine teas come in paper caddies and are elegantly presented in our laser engraved wood boxes.
A pictorial booklet with information about the source of these Taiwanese specialty teas is included. The booklet is neatly inserted into the dividers between the caddies. The box can be reused to store more of your favorite teas or anything else you like. The lid glides on and off smoothly and seals shut with the help of embedded magnets. This sturdy, matte-black box is appealing in both its look and feel.

The appearance of the brewed tea has gained substance, and become a deeper yellowish gold in comparison to the thinner, lighter unroasted brew. This coincides with the flavor profile in that the roasted version is heartier, with a more balanced character. The aroma coming off the leaves from the initial rinse is reminiscent of buttered carrots or yams. After the first brew, the aroma is more like grilled corn, cooling off into freshly baked scones. The second pour brought on stronger roasted vegetable notes, but again cooling off into a pastry aroma.
Red Oolong offers a smooth, balanced, mildly sweet, rich but not quite bold flavor profile, with elements of fruit compote, pumpkin pie, and a hint of dried flowers. This ultra-friendly character, combined with the fact that almost all Red Oolong is cultivated naturally on the southeast coast of Taiwan, facing the wide open Pacific, where the sky reminds a North American of the northern west coast, is no wonder why it is rapidly gaining popularity on the international market. Once again, Taiwan leads the way in Oolong Tea innovation!
