I just created this listing. The tea is already listed under Jas eTea, but they note that they buy it wholesale from JK Tea Shop, so I’m listing it here.

It’s brighter in appearance and flavor than I expected for a darker oolong. The tea soup is dark yellow. It tastes floral and seems like it would be most appropriate for drinking in the Spring. I pick up hints of pine as well.

I put “high caffeine” in the listing without any scientific evidence. So please please take the caffeine level with a grain of salt. I am experiencing more caffeine effects than I normally do with oolong teas, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.

I steeped 7 g. in 200 ml. water at 205 degrees Fahrenheit. 5 second rinse, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds, etc. The tea is at its best for 5 steeps after the rinse, but really not bad for a couple more rounds.

At 205 degrees, there’s a hint of bitterness that isn’t very pleasant. I have another 7 g. left, and I think I’ll steep at 195 with that.

All in all, I enjoyed this tea. I’d buy it again if on sale, but don’t really feel the need to own more of it.

Edit: I should mention that I’m not sure I understand the relationship between JK Tea Shop and JAs eTea. Does anyone reading this know? JAs seems to sell most of their teas, and often at what appears to be a markup. But they’re also straightforward about these being JK’s teas and not theirs, and their websites are very similar. So I keep wondering if they have the same owners or something or if it’s just a wholesale relationship. I’m leaving this here as a reminder to myself to always check JK’s prices before placing an order with the other company.

They sell some stuff stateside for them. They, JAs eTea, are located in North Carolina if I recall correctly. JK is in Kunming I think. Same teas just differences in shipping I am sure.

kristinalee

Oh really? Huh, I just moved where I am now from North Carolina — I had no idea they were there. But yeah, they do seem to be the same teas.

kristinalee

You’re right — Hendersonville. That’s rural NC, sort of a surprising location.

mrmopar

Ha, I am from West Jefferson/Crumpler?Boone area.

kristinalee

Hey! I’m from Raleigh.

mrmopar

DigniTea and Ashmara are near you as well. I think there is a tea shop near you. Angelina’s , does that sound right?

kristinalee

I’m sure you’re right. I mean, I grew up in and recently moved away from the area. Now I live in Connecticut.

mrmopar

Look through some of my puerhs. I can send you some samples if you want.

kristinalee

Thanks. I’ll definitely check them out, but honestly… I probably don’t have anything you’d want to swap, especially since you mostly drink pu’erh.

mrmopar

Not worried about that. Start a wishlist of puerh and I will message you about it in the future. You will have to just pay it forward to a new person joining the site one day. Have you seen my cupboard… I am in a bit of trouble about it….
