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.

Meghann M

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

Charisma

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

S

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 :(

Alannah

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

Doulton

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.

I think this stuff is great. I bought two bottles but was pretty convinced I was going to be disappointed/weirded out by them. Not so. They went fast. It’s actually very clean-tasting and refreshing: straight-up strong-brewed oolong flavour. It’s also one of the only not-water bottled beverages I feel comfortable drinking. I wish I could find more places that stock this!

Geoffrey Norman

I wonder if this is brewed with Japanese oolong. ponders

Jessie

Interesting ponderance! I only have experience with a few Japanese oolongs, all of which were exceedingly dark.

Tina S.

Oooh, this sounds interesting!

Jessie

It is! I wish it was sold more widely. I’ve only seen it at T&T Supermarket.

Tina S.

I suspected that’s where you found it! :D

Got this from the asian food market a while back. My bottle actually looks a little different (it doesn’t have the Tea’s Tea branding on it) but it appears to be the same thing. I liked this a lot, especially since I like the in-your-face flavors like this.

I think this is a great option for “real” tea drinkers. Personally, I enjoy Arizona iced tea, but I know lots of loose leaf drinkers would cringe at that. However, this one gives the convenience of a bottled iced tea with actual, real, oolong flavor.

I’m not sure how accessible these are since I got it from an asian specialty market, but it’s worth a shot if you’re looking for a “truer” bottled iced tea.

This stuff is so refreshing on a hot day. Definitely my favorite Tea’s Tea product and I’m so happy they sell at the campus convenience store!

TeaCast

We have Honest Tea at my campus, but it’s not as good as I would have hoped :\. I can’t get over how bitter it can be!

Micah

We have Honest Tea also but drinking it has been thoroughly disappointing. Not flavorful and, I agree, it can be really bitter.

TeaCast

My friends always tell me to try it and I do and then proceed to make a sour/bitter face haha, they just don’t understand :P

Picked this up at the Asian grocery store today. I wasn’t expecting much out of it, but the description was promising and I wanted to at least try. So far I’ve never tried an oolong I really hated. This was also a convenient thing to reach for while I waited for the water to heat up for a different cup.

This exceeded all my expectations. It’s smooth, with some floral and honey notes and a strong peachy flavor throughout. A really solid oolong! Sadly this particular store doesn’t sell any oolong loose-leaf, but I did find some decent-looking Japanese greens and some interesting herbals.

Flavors: Fruit Tree Flowers, Honey, Peach

Went to Mitsuwa today and got some lunch. I got this tea with it too.

Traveled to Whole Foods yesterday and wanted to go through their tea selection. Bought some dried and bagged teas, but also got this bottle. Very delicious. The tea is a refreshing oolong tea, unsweetened so you get the natural taste of the tea.

I was about to eat dinner, when my family gave this tea to me. I’ve never heard of the brand before, and have only had Oolong teas served hot. At first, I was unsure, but showed my gratitude. And that gratitude was well merited!

The color of this Oolong reminded me of the Assam Golden Tips from Harney & Sons. I expected to taste something a bit strong. In stead, I got a very nice, honey note, along with a good floral flavor.

To think that I would actually be this appreciative of an iced Oolong is quite strange to me. In stead of taking on fringe qualities, as do green teas when iced, this tea tasted quite well this way. I’ll have to look for this tea when I go shopping, to quench my thirst during the hot summer days.

I was over all pleased with this tea, although I was not sure what the quality of the leaves looked like, which slightly bothered me. However, this was a nice surprise gift.

I picked this up yesterday at Shaws. Its in a different bottle than the Teas tea. It just says Ito En Golden Oolong tea. This is a delicious unsweetened Oolong ice tea. It tastes Oolong. The tea has a very robust clean taste and I will buy it again. I just wish it wasn’t 1.99 a bottle.

I picked up a bottle at whole foods, I was a little skeptical at first because I’ve always been terrible at picking out goods. Much to my surprise, it’s got a great oolong taste that’s full-brewed (Dru-speak for “more tannic than advisable”) but I really enjoyed it cold.
