Wuyi Oolong is one of the most expensive teas - or do you might think. I enjoy one teaspoon per cup in the morning, brewed three times! It is amazing how much tea come from just that one teaspoon! I started drinking Wuyi Oolong for its health benefits. It quickly changed to choosing it just for its flavor. My morning is just not complete without my Wuyi Oolong!

Best Tea for Making Kombucha

I make small batches of fermented tea called Kombucha. If you don't know what this is, you can Google it and find a lot of information. If you buy Kombucha at Fresh Market or Whole Foods, it can become an expensive habit. Luckily, Kombucha is easy to make at home. I've experimented with different teas, and I like the Wuyi Oolong Full-Leaf tea from Republic of Tea the best for my brewing. The tea leaves are of the highest quality, very fresh, and are huge after steeping. The brewed tea is clear and has a beautiful color. I haven't made a cup of Wuyi Oolong just to drink since I don't drink a lot of hot tea. But I'm in love with fermented tea and these leaves are the best for home brewing.

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.

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.

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.

I Found it!

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 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!

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. =)

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.
