Perhaps the best-known rock tea from the Wu Yi Mountains of the Chinese Fujian province, this tea is a rare find.
This highly oxidized Royal Red Robe Oolong teas is comprised of large, twisted leaves with a unique appearance. When brewed, this tea produces an amber cup that almost startles with its dramatic aroma and smooth, clean finish.
Brewing Tips: Our Royal Red Robe Oolong tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a point just short of boiling (190-200° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Royal Red Robe Oolong tea should be steeped for 3-4 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for my order to ship?
We strive to ship orders within 2-3 days of receipt. However, due to the handcrafted nature of our products, combined with inventory limitations, some orders may take longer to ship. If there is a significant delay in shipping your order, we will contact you directly with details.
Are your teas cultivated naturally? Are they Organic?
All our teas are sourced from tea estates, suppliers and importers that we have personally worked with for decades and many for generations! We only purchase teas that have been cultivated naturally, devoid of pesticides and growth agents.
Teas that have the term “Organic” in the products name have gone through additional certification by the country or origin and USFDA. Even though all our products are natural, we are unable to list them as Organic unless they have gone through these steps. Sometimes, this certification can be costly and time consuming for growers. Each country has different regulations, so many sell the teas to us without this extra labeling.
How long does tea stay fresh?
If sealed properly and stored away from extreme hot/cold temps and moisture, tea will stay as flavorful as the day you bought it, even after 18 months.
How long should I brew my tea?
