Jade Oolong

Origin: Hubei Province

Product Details

Jade Oolong (Wu Long, 乌龙) is a marvelous mountain-grown tea from Hubei Province. It has an appealing aroma, a beautiful green color and a forceful presence. It has a taste profile characteristic of greener oolongs, complex and just a little woody.

Our Jade Oolong is pure whole leaf organic Chinese tea, Fair Trade certified, and utterly delicious. This is a tea to be enjoyed on a regular basis, but also a tea to bring out for special occasions. It is at once familiar and yet a cut above ordinary oolongs, a tea we are certain you will love.

Jade Oolong is available by 4.25 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.

The leaves, used in a cup or small teapot, may be reused several times. Indeed, some people pour off the first round of water after a short time, “washing” the leaves. 

Please see our Brewing Guidelines for more information.

Smooth Jade Oolong

This is proving to be a nice, smooth tea to alternate with the strong Gunpowder I usually drink in the morning. I can tend to over brew the Gunpowder or leave it for too long, but this tea is forgiving and doesn’t get bitter when left to steep. Your teas are such consistently great quality! Thank you!

Multifaceted Oolong

I'm a big fan of the balance between the woody and subtle floral notes of this oolong. Great to enjoy slowly, savoring each sip.

Wonderful wake-up tea. Flavorful but not sharp. Always a fall-back if I can't decide which tea to have (although yu lu green is usually evening fall-back). Jade oolong is the answer when you don't want tea to taste like water.

A unique oolong

A bit more floral than the oolong that I’m use to, but I really like it. I find myself brewing this over the other two oolongs I have. I have had a hard time finding the right amount of leaves since we brew two cups in the morning in a cast iron pot. Sometimes it is weak, sometimes too strong and bitter. Hopefully I can get the formula right soon! My only wish is that the packaging for the lb. package were recyclable and more eco friendly.

A tea adventure

I have been moving away from (artificially) flavored teas, and toward traditional teas. I never realized how many different tastes could be in one tea! I just finished a delicious third steeping of Jade Oolong, with a a bright beginning, followed by a mellow, complex flavor, and a mildly astringent (but not bitter) finish. Yet, each steeping is also a new experience. It is important to me to source Fair Trade and organic tea. Add to that great customer service, and I know I'll be ordering another tin of Jade Oolong when this one is finished.
