Chinese Tea – Oolong Tea

Chinese Tea history

Tea (Camellia sinensis) is native to China. The ancient Chinese used them for medical purposes, then developed the infusion we know as tea; to this day tea is said to purge the digestive system of toxins. Later the Chinese learned to grow tea plants and use their leaves to make various types of tea.

Many different types of tea were grown during each of the dynasties in China.

Chinese tea culture refers to the methods of preparation of tea, the equipment used to make tea and the occasions in which tea is consumed in China.

Tea culture in China differs from that of Europe, Britain or Japan in such things as preparation methods, tasting methods and the occasions for which it is consumed. Even now, in both casual and formal Chinese occasions, tea is consumed regularly. In addition to being a drink, Chinese tea is used in traditional Chinese medicine and in Chinese cuisine.

Our Oolong Tea

Wu-Long Teas
A direct translation for Black Dragon, Oolong Tea‘s meaning is both mystifying and tempting. No other category of teas includes such a wide range of shapes, colours and aromas.
No other processing technique relies so much on the individual recipes passed down through so many generations. Quite simply, Oolong tea offers something for everyone, from bold-rich roasted flavors to subtle and mellow floral aromas. Have a look around or email us to learn more!

Wuyi Oolong Teas
The Wuyi Mountains are a legendary tourist spot protected under the UN umbrella of World Heritage Sites. Within the magnificent scenery of over seventy odd mountains and lush green valleys an oral history of Oolong tea-making has passed on through generations, yielding over eight hundred variations of teas; each with their own names and processing rules. At Yishan Teashop we have a family connection with this region, and thus we pass on our Wuyi Oolong teas and knowledge with an added element of passion and fondness that goes well beyond the role of tea-seller. We hope that through us, you can learn the vast appreciation for Wuyi’s rich and diverse tea culture.

Tie Guan Yin Teas
Tie Guan Yin-style Oolongs have reached critical mass all across China and are now gaining popularity in the west as a delicate yet complex change from the newly popular green teas.
On the surface, Tie Guan Yins differ from most other Oolong Tea in both a greener color and lower oxidation. However, when it comes to processing, they are nearly a category themselves. Be sure to learn about regional Tie Guan Yins, since we like to sell and demonstrate many of the tasting notes and changes from one farm to the next. Tie Guan Yins offer a unique experience not only based on their quality grades, but on their specific farm location in the famous Anxi county.
