Oolong Tea has less than a quarter the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping Oolong tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes (if using tea bags) or 5-7 minutes (if using full-leaf.)

I drink it at work, after "things" calm down, but it's best in the evening on the back patio.
where are the orchid notes?

Tie Guan Yin is my favorite tea (well, now I had to add RoT's own Milk Oolong!) I have had a dozen varieties from China and from Taiwan, in several grades. All have that distinctive floral note, an exotic flower perfume that is persistent, but always subtle. So I was disappointed that this one just lacked that floral note -- it is a good, plain oolong, with a fruity low note and a little bit of brightness. Nothing wrong, but, at least in my limited experience, atypical for Tie Guan Yin.

A really nice tea. It tastes kind of weak, but its pretty smooth and definitely has the slight floral taste. Not a very strong Oolong.

A very lovely tea. I will be ordering it again.

Sipping on Ti Kuan Yin is like tasting nature in your tea cup. Fantastic taste and fragrance. Also a good choice for beginners as the fragrance while steeping is indicative of the strength of flavor infused in the tea.
