To be perfectly honest, I do not know that The Tea Emporium was the true distributor of the Orchid Oolong that I tasted because I got this tea on the run at a local tea shop. Nevertheless, this is hands down the worst tea I have ever tasted. It had such a strong flavor of wheatgrass that it was barely palatable for me. I am sure, however, that my displeasure with the tea is not related to the quality, steeping time, or other brewing procedures. I just didn’t personally care for the flavor. Even with the addition of sweetener it was just plain nasty.
