Hello, this tea is one of my favorites, Teavana discontinue this tea,shame for teavana. For me the aroma is something herbal is one of the best, and the taste is a little astringent with herbal, I use this tea for eat and it´s wonderful.
I can use this tea in many infusions (7 maximunfor me) the second infusión taste like heaven.

Welcome to the site by the way, and thank you for your reviews!

I definitely love these Dancong (single trunk) oolong teas...there are a lot of good sources of them. TeaVivre (which direct-ships from China) and Life in Teacup (a tiny company) are two companies that come to mind.

I sometimes think that Teavana must be constrained by having to cater to mass-market tastes...and perhaps the U.S. just hasn't developed enough of a taste for pure teas in the mainstream yet. It's sad to see all these teas discontinued, but at the same time it does give an opportunity for all the smaller companies to come in and sell them.

I do sometimes wonder though if there is another economic factor--I think that with pure teas, especially ones like this, a greater portion of the profits tends to reside with the tea producer, so blenders (like Teavana) don't make as much of the profit. So it could be that they make more money by buying lower grade teas and blending them till they taste good enough to sell at a higher price...that's the slightly more cynical interpretation, but I think it has some good economic facts backing it up.

Good afternoon, I am agree with what you write, "they make more money by buying lower grade teas and blending them till they taste good enough to sell at a higher price...that's the slightly more cynical interpretation, but I think it has some good economic facts backing it up."

I like for the flavor and the properties (very important the properties) And I have two bags of 1 kilo.
then I don´t worry because I have for 4 or 5 years of these.

Before teavana sell in mexico cualities teas, but I always ask to the client for what prefer the tea:

1-The flavor
2-The properties
3-Or both.

A lot is for the flavor 76%. The people of mexico dont know the richest properties of the pures tea, and when I take my diferents (4 teas at the same time) I talk from the properties of white, black, oolong, pu-erh, green, etc.

I am a client of teavana
