Jade Oolong is our name for this lightly oxidized, tightly rolled, ball shaped oolong tea that is harvested twice each year in Taiwan's central highlands. Made from the Si Ji Chun, ("Four Seasons Spring") cultivar, Jade Oolong has a golden-green, medium bodied infusion with a very floral, long-lasting aromatic complexity evocative of fresh gardenia, freesia blossoms and tropical fruit. Grown at elevations of 500-850 meters above sea level in the Mingjian Village of Nantou, Taiwan.



Tasting Notes: Aromatic and flavorful with notes of fresh-cut gardenia, freesia blossoms and tropical fruits

Ingredients: Oolong tea.

Additional Info: Oolong tea artisans, like boutique winemakers, bring forth the appellation characters of their teas through traditional crafting techniques. Each oolong tea's distinctive style reflects its place of origin, vintage and tea bush cultivar.

Guywan Brewing Guidelines:

Guywan Brewing from Rishi Tea on Vimeo.

Basic Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 teaspoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 2 minutes (1st infusion), 3 minutes (2nd infusion), 5 minutes (3rd infusion)

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Guywan.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Been a repeat customer for this product twice in the lb bag. Very good quality tea for an everyday oolong. Otherwise it's hard to ration a 50 gram or 100 gram bag for an oolong lover. Highly recommend it.

This is a great tea that has a slightly herbal flavor. It is so interesting to watch the rolled leaves unfurl. It is a delight for the senses. I like to blend this Jade Oolong tea with some Jasmine Silver Needle, just a pinch, to give it a little perfume. About 25% or less Jasmine to 75% Jade. It can be infused over and over, but I usually only infuse 3 times at most.

...and I've had a lot. (Personally never gone for the first-flush senchas, etc. over a tea like this.) Fabulous floral aroma, clean mouthfeel, great color, stands up to repeated brewings quite well. I would note that the description is correct that this is an oolong that might appeal to fans of greens (like myself) more than real oolong-people.
