Angel's Comment:

This Oolong tea is scented with natural extractive from strawberry. Enjoy both fresh taste of oolong tea and sweet strawberry taste.

Talking about the making of this Strawberry Oolong Tea, the natural extractives from strawberry are added after the Oolong tea is made, in order to keep the original flavor of Oolong tea, and ensure that both the strawberry fragrance and Oolong tea’s unique flavor can be tasted. The Oolong tea leaves of this tea is picked and produced in traditional methods.

You can smell the sweet strawberry fragrance as soon as you unseal the bag of the tea. The strong fragrance will also be sensed during the steeping. Try this fruit flavored Oolong tea; you will taste a very different flavored Oolong fragrance.

Tea Farmer

Mr. Lin Xingbiao has been a professional tea farmer for more than forty years. Born in a traditional tea family, he was deeply influenced by his family and built his own tea factory. With the gradual growth of his factory, he is trying to seek the common development between enterprise and tea farmers.

He thinks that the most challengeable factor is the weather. If tea leaves suffered from bad weather, the yield would be reduced and the quality would not reach the standard. If tea leaves suffered from cold weather, straws would be used to cover them and protect them from being frosted. This is what Mr. Lin gets from his experience over the years.

Therefore, the first priority is to strictly control product quality and ensure its reputation. Mr. Lin, together with his tea factory, will continue to provide high-quality tea leaves and regularly increase the number of tea factory which provides the healthy and natural tea beverage.

Tea Bush

C. sinensis cv. Tieguanyin is produced through sexual propagation, a shrub with a medium-size leaf that is oval-shaped, deep emerald-green in color, thick but fragile, with a slight curve along its length and a wavy edge. The leaf dent is thin, and the buds are purple red. It has earned the moniker “delicious but difficult to grow” since only fertile soil, qualified tea shrubs, and appropriate planting and cultivation methods can produce the highest quality Tieguanyin and lead to a bountiful harvest.

The History of Oolong Tea

Oolong tea was first developed during the early 1700's in the Fujian area of China. As a cross between non fermented green teas, and the fully fermented black teas, that combines the best of both in a single tea, Oolong teas quickly became popular all through eastern China and Taiwan. Nowadays Anxi is the biggest producing area of Oolong tea, with the representative Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea.

In the year 1855, Linfengchi removed Oolong tea trees from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian Province of China and traveled to DongDing, which is in Lugu, Taiwan. Once he arrived in Taiwan, he replanted the tea trees, beginning the history of the Dong Ding Oolong, one of Taiwan's most famous teas. During 1858, a British company at that time called Jardine Mantheson & Co. bought semi-finished Oolong tea from Taiwan, spreading it around the world.
