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.

Not My Favorite

This was my first experience with loose leaf oolong. I found the strong smoky flavor too much for my palate. There were lots of stems in the pouch of tea received. Is that typical? Perhaps there is a more appealing selection of oolong? The other selections ordered were excellent!

Not the Oolong I Was Expecting

I was expecting a gorgeous tasting oolong tea like that I have had in good Chinese restaurants - a traditional black tea with bold floral undertones. This tastes like dirt. I am usually very pleased with everything I get from Stash but this was disappointing.

We apologize you didn't enjoy this tea. Please contact us at so we can help you further.
Stems and Twigs

I have had several oolongs and have ordered them from stash in the past. The package I received this time has more stems in it than leaves. I have never seen a tea, apart from those that are purposely composed of stems, with so many twigs in it. Flavor is alright but I won't order this particular tea again.
