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 has their bagged teas but not loose tea, so I have to thank Alex Z. for sending me this loose leaf version (which is even better)!

If you enjoy Jade Oolong tea you really should give this one a try.

I really do think this brand (and their prices) are remarkable...and they've been pretty consistent across different years, I've been drinking them for about 3 years now and have gone through several different batches.

They set the bar pretty high; I've had a lot of pricier teas that I enjoyed less. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find them online; I've seen some products of this brand, but haven't found the canisters of loose-leaf tea that I buy in the farmer's market in Newark, DE.

I think this company could really cash in if their products were available online, and word got out to enough enthusiasts of greener Taiwanese oolongs. Right now it's still a bit of an undiscovered secret, still quirky and hard to locate.
