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.
Delicate floral & smooth balance

This was a wonderful choice. I was able to re-brew my leaves 5 times. The flavor was well balanced, and there was no acidic after flavor. I loved the subtle floral hint.
This is actually a 5+ rating

Such a full-flavored rich tea! No after-taste...no flavor additives....just a smooth cup of sheer bliss. If you haven't tried it yet, treat yourself soon.
I Found it!
June 10, 2012
Many years ago I drank a tea in a Chinese restaurant that I liked extremely well. Though it wasn't sold in any of the major food stores, the restaurant owner gave me the name of store in the Chinese district where I could buy it. Whenever I ran out of the tea, I would go downtown to the Chinese district, and buy it by the bulk. Back then, tea was not very expensive, and I would buy enough to last at least 6 mos. It was an Oolong, but had a certain flavor to it that other Oolong's did not have. Later, the store where I bought it was no longer in business, and over the years, I tried various Oolongs, but none tasted like the tea I loved. When I ordered your Yu-Wi Oolong, I didn't really expect it to taste like the one I used to buy, but was surprised that it has the same flavor as the original Oolong I so enjoyed. I am glad to have found it again, though it's far more expensive than it was back in the day.

I love this tea! I only wish I had ordered a larger size. Will order it again.

This has been one of my favorites for quite a while. Nice flavor, not too overpowering.

I really want to like this tea, but am finding it too light on taste. Maybe I am brewing it incorrectly. Tried it natural and with a little sweetener. No joy!
A truly long lasting tea

When it comes to sipping a refreshing, sit back and let the world go by tea, oolong is wonderful. This tea is mean to be enjoyed slowly and not too hot. And by all means use the tea at least four or five times. It is able to stand the brewing repeatedly. So wonderful.

Okay, this is one beautiful tasting tea. Its silky and just slightly sweet. Its so good that I'm already hoarding the new can I just bought. I bought a Yixing teapot just for this oolong. Worth every cent, even the shipping. If you are an oolong fan, it would be criminal not to try this. =)
Full of flavor

Very nice, full-bodied taste.

This is my very favorite tea. I have a cup every morning. The flavor is gently soothing and gives me a gentle way to wake up and start my day.
I know I am drinking a high quality tea. It is expensive but well worth it and this is a nice indulgence to start my day.

Nice oolong tea. I enjoy the taste and buy it often.
a little different Oolong
August 30, 2011
This is a bit on the pricy side, but it's worth it as it is a very nice Oolong.
The aroma is very nice; it's almost sweet. It also has a "young" or a "tender" taste as compared to other Oolongs, just as the description says, no astringency. I am not sure if it is a pick that is younger than other leaves, but it does taste like that is the case. If you like Oolongs, you should get the taster tin and decide if this is the one for you.
