Unlike most other Taiwanese oolongs, Jade Oolong grows at a low altitude, enjoying bright sunshine and warmer temperatures. The tea comes from a rare varietal that was developed by Professor Wu at the TRES (Taiwanese Tea Research Extension Station) in 1982, who named the tea “Jade” after his grandmother! Because this is a tea that loves the sunshine, it thrives in the areas surrounding Ming Jian village, which has recently become famous for the large quantities of rolled oolong it produces.

Once picked, the leaves are withered in cool air, then very gently tumbled until they reach approximately 15% oxidation. This draws out a natural floral perfume from the leaves, and gives the tea liquor a pale yellow- green tinge when brewed. After tumbling, the leaves are packed into cotton sacks to be squeezed and rolled, twisting the leaves tightly into their distinctive ball shape. A final bake reduces the moisture content of the leaves further and enhances the tea’s natural floral sweetness.
As with other, more expensive oolongs from Taiwan and China, Jade Oolong can be infused again and again, making perfect for gong fu brewing.
