Product Details

One of the world's great teas, a flavored drink in mainland China and Taiwan, oolong tea originated in the Wuyi mountains of China's Fujian province. Oolong is partially oxidized, combining qualities of black and green teas. It has a distinctive fruity taste and bright golden color.

In 1690, Japan was ruled by the Tokugawa Shogunate, the Manchus had repelled the Mongols, Louis XIV ruled in splendor from his new palace in Versailles, Czar Peter had just attained the throne and Johann Sebastian Bach was five years old. And that same year in Japan, the Yamamoto family began producing premium teas, a tradition that continues to this day. More than three centuries of experience go into the selection and processing of Yamamotoyama Teas, among the finest in the world.

I recently ordered this tea and have one problem... I am drinking too much of it. While more seasoned tea explorers may say its not the best, I say its a great Oolong to start with. I have some twinnings in the cabinet that I enjoyed, but not to this extent. As always my perspective might be different than yours so buy small to see if you enjoy if you even buy it at all.

This is the best by far Oolong I have ever tried.

Yamamotoyama really lives up to their reputation with this one, glad to see Stash carries it.

It has a very smooth flavor, very consistent, just a slight hint of subtle caramel and nut, but not too much to be overpowering or get annoying after many cups.
Very, very subtle flavor, just enough to give it a smooth "wow" factor, but not too much where it would come close to being a flavored tea.

This tea truly is perfect, works well in the morning as a replacement for English breakfast, if you're wanting something a little milder, but still gently waking, is a nice evening tea, calming and sweet to the senses, very, very nice tea.

I have never found a Oolong tea so consistently nice as this Oolong.

And that's including many very expensive varieties of more rare and "higher quality" Oolong.

This value is a steal for seven bucks.

What a great value, and the price is perfect.

Friendly, and all around warm.

Please don't tell me you are discontinuing the oolong too. This is the best oolong I've been able to find. You already got rid of my favorites - the teas of india. I won't have enough teas I enjoy to make it worth ordering if this goes too. So disappointing!
