Lao Ye Oolong Tea: A Symphony of Tradition, Quality, and Health


We are excited to introduce Lao Ye Oolong Tea, a truly unique blend that embodies tradition, quality, and health. Handcrafted with dedication, this tea offers a sensory journey that is both invigorating and soothing, making it a perfect addition to your daily routine.

The Art of Tradition

Lao Ye Oolong Tea is a testament to our commitment to preserving traditional tea-making artistry. Sourced from the highest peak in Taiwan, Mt. Yu Shan, our tea is grown in a rare microclimate that enhances its flavor and aroma. Each leaf is carefully cultivated using organic farming methods, ensuring purity and safety.

Our tea master, Liu Chongpei, employs a meticulous roasting process using longan wood charcoal. This method, passed down through generations, infuses the tea with a rich, woody flavor and earthy undertones, setting it apart from other oolong teas. Additionally, the roasting over longan wood charcoal results in a caffeine-free product, making it an excellent choice for those sensitive to caffeine. The longan wood charcoal emits far-infrared radiation, which aids in the formation of gallic acid during oxidation, a unique effect that electric heating cannot replicate.

A Symphony of Flavors

Lao Ye Oolong Tea delights the senses with its bright, lively aroma and a palette of wood-roasted, zesty, and floral notes. This harmonious blend is not only a pleasure to drink but also offers numerous health benefits:

  • Aids Digestion: Improves nutrient absorption and relieves bloating.
  • Boosts Metabolism: Helps manage weight by enhancing fat oxidation.
  • Enhances Mental Clarity: L-theanine promotes alertness and focus.
  • Supports Cardiovascular Health: Rich in antioxidants, it reduces stress and combats free radicals.
  • Detoxifies the Body: Aids in liver function and overall detoxification.

Scientific Backing: More Than Just a Cup of Tea

In 2021, a team of 12 scientists published a remarkable study in the peer-reviewed journal Aging. The study details how a randomized controlled clinical trial of 43 healthy adult men, aged between 50 and 72, found that making evidence-based lifestyle changes could actually reduce biological age. Drinking three cups of oolong tea daily was among the health practices given to the treatment group.

Dr. Kara Fitzgerald, one of the co-authors of the study and a naturopath based in Connecticut, explained that oolong tea contains EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) in the article on her website. This compound has been found to help protect against Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and obesity.

Health Benefits Confirmed

An 11-page review article published in May 2022 in the peer-reviewed journal Food Science and Human Wellness highlighted oolong tea’s antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, antibiotic, and anti-obesity properties. The review noted oolong tea’s benefits in improving the gut microbiome and protecting the heart and liver. These benefits are attributed to important compounds in tea called theasinensins, which help stabilize blood sugar and may aid in recovery from vigorous exercise.

The Unique Compounds in Oolong

Oolong tea also contains GABA and theanine, substances that complement caffeine. These compounds provide a calm, clear-headed alertness instead of the jittery energy that comes with drinking coffee. A 2019 study found that GABA-enriched oolong tea significantly lowered perceived stress levels and heart rate variability, crucial metrics for heart health and stress response.

A Nearly Lost Tradition

Charcoal roasting is a nearly lost art form that we are proud to revive. By partnering with Liu Chongpei, a master tea maker from a prestigious lineage, we ensure that every batch of Lao Ye Oolong Tea is crafted to perfection. This dedication to tradition and quality makes our tea a truly exceptional brew.

Organic Excellence

Our commitment to organic farming is unwavering. Grown at altitudes above 1500 meters on Mt. Yu Shan, our tea trees benefit from cooler temperatures and misty clouds, enhancing the leaves' natural flavors. This dedication to organic practices has earned our tea the Taiwan National Organic Recognition, placing it in the top 1% of nationally awarded teas.

Tea as Healing Medicine

In ancient Chinese culture, oolong tea was cherished not just for its taste but also for its health benefits. It was believed to regulate energy, improve well-being, and promote longevity. Lao Ye Oolong Tea continues this tradition, offering a holistic approach to health with every sip.

No Teapot? No Problem

It includes a silo of our premium tea and a convenient tea filter, perfect for brewing on the go. Simply add a packet of tea to the filter, drop it in your mug, and savor the aromatic flavors wherever your day takes you.
