Red Oolong (Fall '23)


Tea is not only essential to Taiwanese daily life, but also to Taiwanese identity and agriculture. From our friends at BANGtea, this red oolong is produced once a year during the fall season. This particular batch was harvested in Fall 2023 from a family-run organic tea farm in Lugu, Nantou, Taiwan.

Origin: Shanlinxi, Lugu township, Nantou county, Taiwan
Elevation: 1400 meters
Cultivar: Qingxin (青心)
Oxidation : 10%
Roast: 20 hours

From BANGtea:
This oolong is bold and has some serious zip! Based on your brewing method, our red oolong is always a chameleon—let it steep for a long time and you’ll have an intense brew, excellent for iced tea or a cold brew. If you prefer shorter steeps, you’ll be able to experience more depth and nuance of flavor, bringing out its nuttiness and fruitiness.

If you’re curious about red oolongs, we’ve modeled ours off the Dong Ding style that is grown in the nearby famous growing region. Consider this a twist on a classic, grown at a higher elevation and equally delicious. If you’re a coffee drinker, you may love our red oolong’s long, lingering aftertaste and mild astringency.
