Excellent Oolong. I was surprised at how much the leaves expanded. This Ti Kuan Yin is right up there with the best I’ve had. Nice Flower fragrance, smooth Oolong flavor. Highly enjoyable. Brews 3 steeps well. Nice selection Numi….

Fresh Green Oolong. Good. Two steeps will do. I added a slice of ginger. Looking forward to my next cup.

I thought it was a nice cup of tea, common yes, but that’s why it would be an everyday tea with your meals like Keemun said. Tea like this aids in digestion and is soothing on the stomach. Tasty and soothing. Thanks Rishi for bringing this one in.

I found this one to be a bit woodsy, had a dry finish with the classic Oolong flavor staying with you. I was surprised at how different it tasted “barely sipp-able hot” compared with “gulp-able hot”. The taste was much better once it cooled down a bit.

Very close to black tea, but has that Oolong flavor as a foundation. I was impressed how the flavor came thru into the 3rd infusion. Very nice, would go well with chow mein. An easy to drink oolong on the oxidized side…with smoother energy than black tea.

drank Lychee Oolong by Butiki Teas

I found that the Lychee agree’s with the Oolong which is mild and in the background. I liked the aroma, and found the flavor didn’t drop off the map on the second steep. Good tea…even though I’m not as found of blended/ flavored teas. I get such a kick out of using just leaf & hot water seeing how amazing the tea by itself can be.

This would be good on ice, very mellow in nature. Doesn’t have a pungent Oolong flavor coming thru , but a very mild flavor.

Oolong is so great. This is a lighter one with a sweet floral flavor that reminds me of a fine white wine, but without the alcohol flavor. I would say very good for a light Oolong…

Superb Oolong, tasted like a Roasted Jade Oolong if you can imagine that. Medium roast. First steep was outstanding, 2nd steep – wish it was like the first. 3rd, let’s do another pot…

Simple – mere; honest; without pretense.

My cup goes with me…

Three things I am very thankful for,

Two things needed for Tea…
time and a friend.

Here is a tea poem, not mine but I like it…

A Cup of Tea

A cup of tea at the crack of dawn
Uplifts the spirit and inspires the heart.

A cup of tea after a meal
Clears the mouth and helps the stomach.

A cup of tea amid the bustle of life
Relieves parched throat and dispels vexation.

A cup of tea when you’re overworked
Soothes muscle and bone and dissolves fatigue.
