Oolong for an Organic Future is a nutty, strong, and deliciously woody loose leaf oolong tea.
Tea production in Taiwan is highly collaborative, with the numerous steps involved contracted out to a number of small businesses. This oolong is the result of a collaboration between two young brothers with an ambition to gain organic certification for their family tea garden and a Master Baker with a visionary plan to move to carbon neutral/negative in the next two years.
In this highly networked tea system, their work (supported by your purchase and the guarantee of regular orders and a fair price) has the potential to inspire others to take the same path. In a business that needs to attract and retain more young people, the hope is that this pioneering approach will demonstrate first hand how exciting a positive and sustainable future in Taiwanese tea can be.
