Information: A legend told in the villages of Taiwan‟s Alishan National Scenic Area maintains that the Tsou Tribe of Aborigines, people who inhabited the mountainous region centuries ago, first discovered wild tea in Taiwan by chance. (The name Alishan itself derives from an old aboriginal word – Jarissang.) The story goes that the Tsou discovered that leaves from a certain bush (now known to be tea) produced an elixir when boiled that had the ability to raise spirits and keep the mind alert. During the 19th century, tea growers from mainland China visited the country and discovered what the Tsou people had known for centuries – the Alishan region, with its high mountain slopes, crisp clean air and abundance of sunlight is one of the worlds‟s greatest locations for growing tea, Oolong in particular. Today‟s Alishan teas are still produced according to the methods established by the early planters. Fresh leaf is hand plucked and immediately wilted in the sun for a period of time. Next, they are placed in baskets and shaken to bruise the leaves and release the enzymes that produce flavor. This is followed by a period of oxidization after which the leaves are laid out to dry and finally fired. The result is nothing short of a spectacular Oolong – an almost perfect example of the best the Alishan region has to offer. Brew a pot today and experience what some tasters refer to as the “champagne of Taiwan”! Enjoy

    Best on the market, lovely with a shot of lemon juice. I buy it all the time and drink it either hot or cold.

    I don’t like strong teas with the grainy or filmy residue after taste. This does not have that. It is very pleasant. The description alone explains the product well.

    The jade oolong is definitely one of my favorites so far! I’ve been trying out blending my own tea lately, and the mellow flavor mixes great with other more potent teas.

    My favorite oolong, with a slight malt taste, and raw sugar sweetness and a floral finish. Brews to a medium amber. Very nice with spearmint.

    The taste of the tea is wonderful. The tea is light yellow in color and flavor is very light. To an extent, it reminds me of a lighter version of sencha.

    This tea has a full body flavor that you can taste with your entire mouth although it is not overpowering. It is imperative that you drink this tea at its peak temperature become as I find the temperature compliments the power of this tea. It is a perfect partner with reading a book as it tantalizes the taste bud and the mind that makes for a clear reading experience.

    This is my favorite tea to carry with me through the day. Not too much caffeine, not too much bold of a flavor. Harmony in a cup.

    If you love green oolongs, you will love this tea. Light floral notes and a natural softness in the cup are fantastic. One of the best lightly oxidized oolongs I have tasted, especially for the price.

    I’ve been drinking Jade style Oolongs for over 20 years. They all tasted different (depending on harvest year, grower) and had their own occasion to taste best. This one is definitely made for first thing in the morning: it does not shock your system, it’s smooth, slightly floral with a balmy sweetness.

    Still my favorite tea from CuppaTea, period. Rich, full, woody flavor. Honestly, no drink makes me quite as happy as this particular tea. I am hooked on it.

    This is a very interesting tea. Floral on the nose, that continues with the taste. But the after taste! this tea really shines. Almost a mild honeysuckle flavor lingers.

    Had forgotten this tea and included it in variety-gift I got for my daughter. She is cutting back on caffeine for breast feeding and really enjoys this fragrant, light, re-steep able option. It is one I’ll reorder

    I love me some jade oolong. It’s fresh and uplifting but not a strong tea. It’s the sort of thing I drink when I want subtle flavors and a feeling of wellness rather than something heady and commanding.

    This is the first oolong I’ve ever tasted, and I may just be a convert now. The taste is mildly like green tea, but with the depth and undertones. There’s a mild floral quality reminiscent of jasmine or gardenia. Very delicious.

    For someone who’s grown sick of green tea, this is a good halfway point; it has green tea aroma but a nice oolong body.

    I love watching the tea leaves unfold during the first brewing. I’ve found that I like this tea best when I use a half teaspoon for a whole pot. I love how each subsequent brewing is different, like how the hues of sunlight change in an afternoon.

    My favorite of all the oolongs. Can be steeped multiple times adding to the value, tea has a light flavor, so I tend to use in a blend with a stronger flavored tea. It mixes well with any of the Rooibos teas.

    I am still new to the world of oolong, but I very much enjoy this light and floral tea. I need to fiddle with steeping times and temperatures, but I can already tell that this tea has a lot of depth to its flavor.

    Sandee Shock (verified owner)

    This tea is really fresh and light. I love the ‘green’ taste of it. I do think that re-brewing it more than twice is a bit much, the flavor becomes a bit ‘watered down’ for me. It’s my daily mid-morning tea. Great taste!

    Concetta Dechart (verified owner)

    There’s elegance to this tea that I haven’t found in any of the other oolongs I’ve tried from CuppaTea. Full-bodied but graceful, refreshing but a little dry on the tongue, this is absolutely worth the indulgence.

    When I worked at a tea shop, this was one of my go-to oolongs. I would often brew this oolong as an ice tea with a little bit of spearmint. Something about the creaminess of the oolong paired with the spearmint made for one of my favorite summertime brews.

    This is a lovely tea. Always delicious, always comforting, always reliable. I won’t say you can’t mess it up—I’m sure you could—but if you follow the general suggestions as to temperature and time it will be wonderful. And you can get good tea by re-steeping at least once.

    My first experience with an oolong and I definitely picked the right one to begin my journey with. I’m excited to taste others and see what future steeps bring. It’s light and really smooth, full of different flavors after each steeping ranging in different combinations of being floral, vegetal, fruity, and even nutty.

    This is one of the best teas Ive ever had! Simply delightful, with a tantalizing fragrance and subtle, delicate sweetness that makes you keep coming back for more. My family was equally pleased, so I elected to brew a whole pot to share… and then made three more because we kept running out!
