I love, love, love, love, love this tea. It is my first oolong that I have appreciated, very delicate and earthy and I added honey cause I couldn’t help myself, was craving sweet, and it was just tres wonderful. It is my new most favorite tea.

Reading your tasting notes brings back to me the feelings I had, such as the delight of the first high-quality, correctly steeped light oolong! My first was the Ali Shan, which is similar to this Jade Oolong by Rishi, but maybe even less oxidized, and the leaves are larger, so probably a different tea plant varietal. It begins to remind a person of wine tasting — similarities like varietals, growing region, and terroir.

I have just fallen in love with drinking tea. I just think it is so very precious and I am having such fun exploring all the different wonderful possibilities. I am a psychotherapist, dancer, meditator, that has of late been experiencing tons of pleasure in nature; tea drinking included. I am grateful for this precious Earth of ours, and tea is just the most perfect of her treasures. I am also grateful for the people who have lovingly cultivated this treasure so we may enjoy it. I also love this site.
