Our friend, a master tea roaster who consistently wins the highest awards in roasted Oolong Tea competitions, suggested we offer this tea as an affordable choice of quality roasted tea. He explained that it is a very popular choice here in Taiwan as well as for his wholesale customers in China, as it very similar to his higher grade roasted teas that are multiple times the price.

These leaves were allowed to oxidize significantly more than our unroasted Tsui Yu Oolong Tea, in order to achieve optimal results in their roasting. This added time and skilled attention put into to the making of this tea are what make it an especially good value. It is an artisanal tea made from economical resources — making it a prime example of sustainably sourced tea!

Roasting tea leaves is a long, slow time-consuming process that requires experience to do properly. In general, roasting is reserved for hand-picked tea leaves. All of these factors add up to a higher production cost, which makes these teas relatively more expensive. Roasting also reduces the relative amount of caffeine in the tea leaves, so this is an excellent tea for those looking to reduce caffeine intake. Its rich, bold, hearty character makes it a great coffee substitute.

Our new Roasted Tsui Yu Oolong Tea is much more affordable than the top of the line teas mainly due to the fact that it is machine harvested rather than hand-picked. In fact, machine harvesting offers a more sustainable production method that does not necessarily compromise quality.
