If my heaven could exist in a teacup, I think I may have found it here.

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...

Great oolong! Subtle all around; light floral tones, light color, and light vegetable flavor all make for a pleasing drink. Tea left a buttery soft texture on my lips. Simply Good Teas lives up to their name; nothing overly fancy, but very good!

This tea was really good, reminiscent of tea served at my favorite Chinese restaurant growing up.

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!

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!

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.

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...

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...

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!

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!

PS I agree with Alex, definitely n...

I thought this tea was superb! I brewed it for a short amount of time and have no complaints -- no bitter aftertaste, subtle flavor, silky smooth texture -- this tea was great for sipping and relaxing with at lunch. It was even good to drink when cool. I look forward to having this again!

Mar. 29th, 2013

As usual, I was pleased with this sample from Arbor Teas! I really appreciated the burnt and smokey smell of the brewed leaf and enjoyed the flavor, which I found to be smoother and richer than most oolongs - I usually expect a more subtle cup. Overall, I liked this tea and would recommend it to others.

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 :)

I enjoyed the subtle flavor of this tea and would drink it again. The smell was a little strange at first, smelling kind of like pea soup, but faded into a more floral tone as it steeped.

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! :)

I really liked this tea. It was strong compared to most oolongs that I've had. I was able to brew more than one cup from the same leaves with them remaining flavorful.
