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.
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.
I'm normally a black tea drinker and didn't think I cared much for oolongs, but I was so wrong. This tea has a wonderful flavor and is an absolute treat.
Love green tea and love oolongs and this tea combines best of both. Always feels like an indulgence when I make a pot of this tea. Very special.
