Smaragdine Green Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa
Aug. 21st, 2018

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????
Nov. 21st, 2017

I picked this up at a local International Market not expecting much out of it as the price was very cheap (100 grams for $7.99). I've not had much luck with similar purchases in the past i...

Dong Ding Oolong

Style: Jade Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa
Nov. 10th, 2013

Beautiful jade green oolong with low oxidation and a bright, clear aroma and flavor. The natural sweetness is amazing! Aroma mirrors the sweetness but has distinct floral notes.

I have become very impressed by this brand, and the quality of their teas for very reasonable prices. One of my local Asian markets often ...
