Golden Lily Oolong Tea
Come Sip with Us
Over the Moon with Oolong
Aumtea’s Golden Lily Oolong tea comes from the nearly green, fermented leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, grown in the high mountains of Northern Thailand. In Thailand, oolong is also used to make the popular Thai Tea drink (“cha nom yen”) in five-star restaurants. Our Golden Lily Oolong is refreshing and light, with a distinctive natural aroma.
Aumtea’s Golden Lily Oolong is a processed top leaf tea that is 30 - 40% oxidized, which refers to the amount of time the picked leaves have been exposed to air. Black and green teas come from the same tea bush as oolong does, but derive their colors, flavors and health benefits through different levels of oxidation – black tea is fully oxidized before drying, and green tea is unoxidized. Oolong tea lies somewhere in the middle, combining the best qualities of both.
Our Golden Lily Oolong is an excellent choice for those looking for a healthy, mildly caffeinated tea. Oolong has about half the caffeine as green or black tea, and is packed with antioxidants. Additionally, Oolong is an exceptional source of important minerals like potassium, manganese, sodium, niacin and magnesium.
Aumtea’s Golden Lily Oolong is always grown in its natural state, and is 100% free from pesticides, coloring, sugar, preservatives and any other chemical substances.
"My wife and I found the recipe for Thai tea on your website. We love the milky-sweet flavor of Thai Tea from our local Thai restaurants. We took your advice and ordered 1kg (of Aumtea’s Oolong tea) make our own Chaa Yen tea at home. THANK YOU! What a pleasure to have this great taste available at home. We've even started drinking your tea by itself to help be healthy and cut down on caffeine."

How to Brew the Perfect Cup of Golden Lily Oolong tea
Brewing tea and herbal infusions is a blend of art, science, and meditation.
Follow this guide for a superb cup of Golden Lily Oolong:
Begin by boiling 6-8 ounces (200-250 ml) of pure water.
Place one teaspoon of Golden Lily Oolong leaves into your tea pot.
Let the water cool for about one minute. The perfect temperature is just below the boiling point, at 160-200 F (71-93 C).
Pour a little water over the leaves to rinse them, and then drain the water.
Fill your pot with the hot water and steep for 3-5 minutes.
Pour, serve, and savor!
Please note that steeping your leaves more than once is perfectly fine.
