About Oolong Tea
Frequently referred to as the "champagne of teas," oolong invites contemplation to appreciate its natural taste variations. Sometimes, it can be delicate with fruity undertones, or it can evoke the distinctive notes of green tea. If the leaves have been briefly pan-fired, it may reflect a light smoky taste.
China's dramatic Wuyi Mountains yield the most acclaimed oolong teas. Revered in Chinese culture for centuries, the Wuyi Mountains are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, destined for protection and appreciation for future generations.
The Stash Tea Company is a privately-held company headquartered in Tigard, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. Founded in 1972, Stash Tea originally operated out of an old Portland Victorian style house, supplying loose herbal teas and bulk herbs to natural food stores. Starting in 1975, the company broadened its focus to include bagged teas and then began to sell a full line of traditional, specialty blend and herbal teas directly to fine restaurants and through a mail order catalog to consumers.
Today, Stash Tea is one of the largest specialty tea companies in the United States. The company derives its name from an entertaining aspect of tea folklore. In earlier centuries, tea was a valuable commodity traditionally transported by clipper ship. The ship's captain often was presented with some of the finest teas for his personal use. This supply was his "stash," stowed carefully as his "private reserve". Today, the term is still used to denote anything put away carefully because of its preciousness.
