If my heaven could exist in a teacup, I think I may have found it here. Read Full Review
I thought this tea was phenomenal. The silky smooth mouthfeel and the orchid, honeysuckle. and vegetal tones were to. die. for. I don't think I could get enough!
This tea lasts for multiple infusions; the first is by far the best, but I th...

Wow, not what I was expecting from a black tea in a really good way! This sample came from the Philadelphia Coffee & Tea Expo.Read Full Review
Brews more like an oolong, which is right up my alley. Has the strong vegetable taste of cooked greens. No bitterness at the end. Slight natural sweetness. Floral tones in the dried lea...

This tea was really good, reminiscent of tea served at my favorite Chinese restaurant growing up. Read Full Review
Full yet mild flavor, with both steepings being rich. The leaf could have yielded more cups if had the time. The dried leaves smell like raisins!

This tea was amazing! I loved how vegetable-y it smelled and tasted, and how velvety it was going down. Mmmm. This has to be one of the best oolongs I've had in a while. It was a little sweet, but not overwhelming so. I'm very impressed!Read Full Review

This tea was great! I got three brews out of it, all well flavored. The third was quite possibly the best. The second brew was a little too light for me,which could have been because I steeped it for a shorter time with cooler water. I loved the vegetable tones and how smooth it was!Read Full Review

This was an exceptional sacheted oolong! The smell was exquisite and so was the taste. This tea can be resteeped at least once, giving more for the money paid. Question remains... where can I get more?? I may need to mail order, as a friend brought this back for me from England.Read Full Review

I thought this tea was amazing. It went further than any tea I've had before at 5 cups with the same leaves, with a similar strength. I honestly think I could have brewed more, but my meeting was finished and I had to dump the remainder. I could gush about the vegetal taste of this tea, it was all I could want and mo...Read Full Review

I especially enjoyed the roasty flavor of this tea. There definitely was a slight sweetness, which from my own preferences, I wasn't a huge fan of. I always find it impressive when I get a few cups of tea with similar strength off the same leaves, and this tea delivered. I've only had two oolongs from Eco-Cha so far...Read Full Review

I thought this tea was fantastic. I loved the vegetable flavors and light floral tone. The only thing I didn't like was the mild sweetness, but that hardly changes how much I enjoyed it. I also loved that I was able to brew four cups out of out one sample packet, without the tea loosing any flavor! Read Full Review

I thought this tea was great. I could rave about it, but will settle for saying I loved the hint of flowers in the smell and the hearty vegetable soup taste it left in my mouth... practically a meal in itself. Now I just need to know, where can I buy some? Sign me up, I'm there!Read Full Review
PS I agree with Alex, definitely n...

I was happy with this tea, and especially its reasonable price! To me, it had a subtle taste, like most oolongs, and I was happy with how smooth and soothing it was to drink. I'm hoping to buy some the next time I go to my local Asian supermarket :)Read Full Review

I thought this tea was very good for its price! It was smooth and reminded me a little of chicken soup (odd, I know, but it had a comforting quality!) I'll definitely be having this tea again! :)Read Full Review
