This exquisite, high grade organic oolong is a pure delight! Its larger, olive green balled leaves are oxidized a mere 20% and when infused emit a stunning honeysuckle fragrance that is sweet, floral, buttery and, above all, luxurious. In fact, it is hard to pull oneself away from the fragrance to taste the infusion. Its pale yellow infusion is light, delicate and silky smooth. While the fragrance takes center stage in the first infusion, the liquor and flavor become more prominent in subsequent infusions. Grown and manufactured in Lam Dong, Vietnam (3,200 feet above sea level) with the QingXin cultivar, this oolong is a rare example of an exceptional organic certified High Mountain Oolong.

Like other fine organic loose leaf oolong tea, our High Mountian Oolong may be infused a number of times, with each infusion revealing a new nuance of this tea's complex flavor.

Ingredients: organic Vietnamese oolong tea


Serving Size: one level teaspoon per 8 oz cup of water

Staff Perspectives


Aubrey Says: This tea is so smooth that its liquor is almost hard to detect when sipped. Dare I say it is ephemeral?

  1. Not my Favorite

    Posted by Greg E. on 14th Aug 2016

    Personally I did not like this tea. It wasa little harsh to me. Not very smooth. It is not that it is a bad product. I just do not think it is a good value for the price. Not really very special and one of the higher priced oolongs at Arbor. Arbor sells some much better oolongs at a lower price.

  2. Excellent

    Very smooth and earthy tea. Helps me relax after stressful day at the office. It's a little pricey, but if you're an oolong lover why not treat yourself?


We at Arbor Teas firmly believe that tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. With that being said, here are some recommendations to get you started, but please remember you can make adjustments based on your own personal taste.

There are three main considerations when brewing tea: quantity of tea, water temperature and steeping time.


Quantity of tea: one level teaspoon per 8 oz cup of water


Water temperature: use water that has been heated until the first bubbles begin to rise from the bottom of the pot (195° F)


Steeping time: 4-7 minutes

Tip #1: Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.

Tip #2: Keep in mind that brewing your tea for too long can extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves, so steeping time matters! For a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea.

There are five significant components found in all tea from the plant camellia sinensis: essential oils, which are the source of tea’s delicious flavor and aroma; polyphenols, which are antioxidants that provide the tea’s brisk flavor and many of its health benefits; phytonutrients, which are small amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids including L-theanine (a very rare molecule that has been found in only three sources including camellia sinensis!) ; enzymes; and methylxanthines, which are a family of alkaloids that include caffeine. Each of these components work differently in the human body and a full description is best left to a medical journal. However, recent research exploring the potential health attributes of tea is leading many scientists to agree that tea, may contribute positively to a healthy lifestyle.
