The best oolong I’ve ever had…have to experiment with the steep time but what I got from the 2nd steep (1st one rejected after 5sec as instructed by the tea company) blew me away. Never expected to like any non-black tea so much.

A word about the tea
Daoli Gren Trip is a lightly oxidized tea from the Fujian province of China. This tea derives its name from the long-standing tradition of combining tea drinking with religious and meditative practices. Daoli Green Trip has a fresh taste with floral overtones. It can quench your thirst and charge you with the positive energy of the sun-bathed valleys of southern China.
Why we like it
Tea and Zen philosophy have gone hand in hand for many centuries. Making this tea is supposed to invoke the teachings of Buddha. It’s a perfect choice for quiet contemplation. A good way to enjoy this tea is to use a gaiwan or a complete tea set and brew it properly multiple times. Each new brew will have a slightly different flavor. Following these changes is a big part of the Green Trip expeirience. It is believed that the last drops of tea in the gaiwan are the most precious because they contain most of the tea’s essence. So, remember to share the last drops of this divine beverage with all your guests. Tieguanyin is one of China’s finest and most famous teas. It’s a must-have for serious tea drinkers. And Green Trip won’t disappoint.
