About this product

Product details

Traditional hand rolling brings the delicate shape and flavor of this rare Formosa Oolong to life.

Golden Dragon Oolong is our finest quality Formosa tea, with a distinctive sweet, dry, peach-pit flavor and floral aroma. This tea is more carefully attended than almost any on earth. Bushes are grown in shade to slow the leaf growth and develop unique properties. Unlike other fine teas, the leaves are allowed to grow longer prior to plucking, and instead of two leaves and a bud, harvesters pluck three. Entire leaf bud sets, still intact from the moment of plucking, often linger at the bottom of the pot. To make the tea, the leaves are first withered in the sun for two hours, then several pounds of leaf are wrapped in cotton and hand-pressed, so as not to tear the leaves. The leaves are then unwrapped and allowed to wither and oxidize in shade; then all three steps are repeated multiple times. To finish the tea, the leaves are first pan-fired, graded, then finally fired in baskets over hot coals.

Peet's Golden Dragon Oolong is now a Mighty Leaf tea. Same origin, same flavor, same quality.

Extremely disappointed. Golden Dragon Ooling was my favorite Peet's tea for over 20 years. I decided to try the Mighty Leaf offering -- allegedly the same as the Peet's -- and opened the tin alongside the last tin I had of the Peet's version. Two ounces of the Peet's filled the tin. The tea was almost entirely whole-leaf, fragrant, complex on the palate. The Mighty Leaf tea filled only half the container and was mostly ground tea and small leaf pieces. It was flat and simple when brewed -- nothing like the consistenly excellent oolong I had been drinking for more than two decades. I will never buy another Mighty Leaf tea again.
