The Cup of Poetry - This hand-picked tea is prized for its large silver-tipped leaves and pure peach flavor. Highly aromatic, completely lacking in astringency, this oolong has the flowery upper register of a top-grade Darjeeling, but with a rounder, deeper, fuller cup. Its flavor has been compared to chestnut, honey and peaches. This tea makes a delightful cup.
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.)
Pure Silver- Tip Formosan Oolong leaves made from the WuYi tea varietal.

I grew up drinking teas especially formoosa oolong, but this is an especially great cup of tea. It is well worth the price. I can't always affort it but we all have to have a few luxuries in our lives and this is mine.
Pretty good Oolong

This is a good, well-rounded Oolong. It does not taste like peaches or honey. I'm not sure where they got that. If it tasted like any of the descriptions, I would say it would be chestnut. Mostly it tastes like any other oolong. Nothing to write home about. It's a good tea and I would buy it again. Has a decent second steeping using half the water used for the first steeping.

If you like or love Oolong, you will love this one. It's so smooth, almost sweet. When I've finished my cup, I'm still wanting for more. No sweet flavors, just pure Oolong at its finest. Yum.
This tea is excellent

A co-worker of mine from China would bring in Oolong tea. It was excellent and I've been looking for something like it ever since, but have always been disappointed. Not anymore. This tea is excellent. I was not disappointed. Actually, I was delighted.
good but not the best

a good tea but i don't think it's the best. it's very robust so a little goes a long way. other than that, i don't there is anything particularly special about this tea.
