drank Tea's Tea Golden Oolong by Ito En
161 tasting notes

I picked a few of these up at Whole Foods the other day. I was a smidge leary, but I had a hunch I would like it. Man, am I impressed! This tastes so nice and clean…so oolong-y and nom! It’s great with food or by itself. I wish they weren’t $1.99 a pop, because I could casually drink a lot of this. I drank the majority of the bottle ice cold with lunch. Yum! Now, I’m finishing up the bottle and it’s kind of luke-warm. STILL really good! I love that this was totally unsweetened and natural.

I guess $1.99 isn’t too bad if I only pick up 3 or 4 every now and then. It’s totally worth it!

I like these too. And they ARE sort of expensive, unfortunately, but pretty tasty every now and then.

Really wishing I had a whole foods near me so I could try this.

Ito-en also has their Oi-Ocha line that (from what I’m told) is brewed with higher-quality leaves and caters to “a more experienced palette.”

@meghann, I’ve seen both Tea’s Tea and Oi-Ocha in Asian grocery stores. They also sell 12-packs on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Ito-En-Japanese-16-9-Ounce-Bottles/dp/B0017T2MWW

I really like this one too :) I wish the price wasn’t that way either.

Oooh, one of my favorite actors is the “face” of Oi-Ocha in Japan…I was wondering what it tastes like! I think I’m going to buy a pack off of Amazon at a later date…gah, tea puts me way over my budget :(

I’m always looking for unsweetened bottled teas! Sounds great!

Thank you for the review. I’ve seen it on the shelves and flirted with buying it. Now I know that I can safely get one of these for summer emergencies.
