Review: Organic High Mountain Oolong Tea review by Amanda Wilson
January 19, 2014
We really like how Amanda Wilson's (My Thoughts Are Like Butterflies) reviews combine detailed tasting notes with the feelings that each tea invokes. Always thorough and interesting to read, here's Amanda's take on Eco-Cha Organic High Mountain Oolong Tea.
"The aroma of this tea is enticing, not overpowering and heady but like a spring breeze bringing distant aromas through an open window, this tea makes me want to go outside and explore."
"This tea is great for sipping Gong Fu style and reminds me of early Springtime, it also is soothing to my angry stomach so that is a huge plus."
"I suggest giving their website a view, they give lots of useful information about their teas which I certainly appreciate."

his month's batch of tea is from a crop of naturally culitvated Jin Xuan harvested in the summer of 2017. The leaves were significantly affected by the Green Leafhopper and other pests, so they were stunted and gnarled and far from the standard of quality that is commonly followed. But as our friend who sourced the raw leaves and processed them using traditional Oolong Tea making methods once told us "I'm more interested in odd and unusual tea!" (我現在比較喜歡奇奇怪怪的茶!).
