Origin: Hubei Province
Jade Oolong (Wu Long, 乌龙) is a marvelous mountain-grown tea from western Hunan 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 3.5 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.

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.
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.
Took a bit of time to find my preferred ratio of tea to water but once I found it I absolutely loved it
This is the best Oolong I have ever tasted!
The sweetness and delicious flavor of this oolong really surprised me. It may be my favorite of Little Red Cup teas so far.
This is my go to, quintessential oolong and I cannot wait to enjoy it again and again . Thank you! Also the rangsai green special is a personal favorite , it’s delicious and so fragrant
