Japanese Oolong Tea

Hi Steepsters,

For the last few months, I occasionally have been trying some Japanese Oolong teas. All of them were very close to black teas. Well, I´m not a big fan of this product type.
So my questions is, are there Japanese Oolong teas which are more similar to Taiwanese Oolong teas?

Hello Oca Ocani,

I know what you mean about Japanese Oolong, they tend to be dark and wooden.
There are some green Japanese Oolong, one of my favourites being: http://steepster.com/teas/yuuki-cha/22626-organic-miyazaki-oolong-tea-kuchinashi


It’s perhaps the best example I’ve had that’s been close to what you are looking for.

Thanks for the recommendation, going to add this to my next Yuuki-cha order. I love green oolong too and have been curious about Japanese oolongs for a while. I’ve had bottled iced oolong tea from Japanese stores (delicious BTW) but I think it’s made with Tieguanyin from Taiwan so not a true Japanese oolong tea.

Thanks, KittyLovesTea.

Sounds like I should give Yuuki-Cha a closer look :)
