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 Instructions

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.

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!

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.
