Description

Jade Mountain Organic Oolong from Taiwan is a Dongding style tea of the highest quality. 

Why Jade Mountain? Because the water for the tea bushes flows from nearby Yu Shan, Taiwan’s highest peak. Yu Shan means “Jade Mountain.”

This is a medium-oxidised oolong with a punchy floral aroma and a crisp mouth feel. It’s one refreshing and uplifting tea!

It’s also great to know that this tea contains no pesticides or herbicides.

Brewing & Enjoying JADE MOUNTAIN Organic Oolong

  • 4 grams per 200 ml of water is ideal
  • Brew at around 85-90 degrees Celsius for 1 to 1.5 minutes.
  • Using a glass teapot such as the Piao I Portable Teapot you can also watch the pellets unfurl before your eyes.
  • The next steeping can be shorter (about 45 seconds)
  • The last steeping can be lengthened to extract as much of the remaining flavour as possible.
  • You could keep infusing after that, but the flavour is consistently excellent for the first 3 infusions.

Try a Cold Brew!

  • Add 5 grams (2 heaped teaspoons) to a Mason jar or similar.
  • Pour in 750 ml water and place in the fridge for 4 hours.

Last but not least. Filtered water is also terrific for this organic oolong tea. It definitely enhances the flavour.

Did you know?

Lower temperatures, less sunlight and dense cloud cover in Taiwan’s mountains offer perfect conditions for organic oolong tea cultivation. The leaves for Jade Mountain Organic Oolong are hand-picked in these conditions at 1,500 metres above sea level.

A great first pu'er cake

This was the first raw pu'er cake I ever purchased and was a great introduction to what a young raw pu'er is like. By flash steeping, this can last for over a dozen steeps. It has that classic bitterness that the Lincang region is known for, which I find quite enjoyable. After the first few flash-steeps, you'll begin to really notice the sweetness kicking in and a menthol sensation building in the throat. It's fun experiencing the tea changing as the session progresses. There are better young raw pu'er cakes out there but this one is solid, and the unusually small size keeps the price down enough to make it easier to try.

Thanks for the feedback, Cha Crusade! Great to know you're getting so many steeps out of The Mini.

by Misbah on JX Organic Oolong
Oolong love you long time

This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.

We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.

MATCHA (Unkaku: ‘Crane in the Clouds’)

Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!

Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
