Origin: Hunan 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.
It is soooooooooooo good!
The Jade Oolong from Little Red Cup is very good. It has a nice sweet and toasty flavor in my opinion. I like it best in the afternoon.
I have been very happy with Little Red Cup tea. Has great flavor and price. The service is excellent and quick. Love the personalized touch with the hand written cards! Will continue to order tea in the future.
This tea is one of the most delicious teas I've ever tasted, the tea opens up into large beautiful whole leaves with a surprising amount of mass as they steep. As soon as I poured the water onto the tea leaves I was hit with a floral smell, at first I thought Gardenia but then it became the super familiar scent of Lilac. It wasn't until I went back to look at the website that I saw lilac listed as a tasting note. Spot on! Smells and tastes like rich sweet grass and lilac on a very fresh spring breeze. Love it!
