Review: Red Jade and Concubine Oolong Reviews by TChing

November 17, 2013

A great read on Eco-Cha Red Jade and Shan Lin Xi High Mountain Concubine Oolong Teas by Regena Rafelson of TChing. 

"The first sip was minty and spicy. I immediately drained the cup. The second steep was even better, catching all the best of Autumn’s fruits, falling leaves, gathering firewood. The tea remained aromatic through four steeps. My husband and I enjoyed it for several days, chatting away as we sat near the wood stove, sipping Red Jade Tea. The tea is a real treat!"

"A whiff of leather and tobacco, very pleasant. The second steep was lovely, like dried plums and dried cherries. Through a fourth steep, the leaves unfurled more, but remaining fully flavorful."
