I love the spring oolong and the gaba oolong teas. I received my order much quicker than I expected. Very happy with the service.

Elegant brewing vessel!

I have used many types of brewing tools (stick, strainer, etc.) and this integrated gai wan is not only elegant but so easy to use and clean. I highly recommend getting one of your own.

A lovely cup of red tea.

I really enjoy this tea. I taste cinnamon, and a slight minty flavor in a round and fully bodied red tea. It is very soothing and has a very relaxing effect overall. When brewed well there it is very smooth going all the way down. I recommend it.

Great sampler

This was a really nice intro to several different teas.

I haven’t finished my oolong and I am ready to order more. I am in love with quality of the tea and its flavor. I steep my tea and enjoy it and then I steep it again and it keeps giving! I am also very appreciative of how fast it was delivered. Thank you.

Such a great tea

It's a pleasant, smooth oolong tea, with a hint of that yam and bug biten influence. Great tea for any occasion and it can go through several steepings.

Likes: I enjoyed having the variety to experience and learn about oolong.
Delightful Oolong Trinity

I'm new to oolong. I appreciate having these three styles to try and compare. I found I loved them equally. They are each deliciously unique.

Love the selection of Teas, vacuum packed for transportation and seal in the Teas, reducing the size. Get a lot of pots out the Teas.

Nice and complex taste

My second green tea from Eco cha. I like Bi Luo Chun very much, but this tea has more body for me. Definitely not fruity, it's more vegetable. Nice clean and refreshing taste, like savoury soup. Like it!

Refreshing and very flavourful green tea

I was expecting a good tea, but it's more good and aromatic than my expectations! Fresh taste of pear in greeny cloud of freshness - I'm hooked! And that's along with my primary love with oolongs. Highly recommend this Taiwan green tea.

Tasted Young

I would say this tea brewed closer to a green with a heavy floral and even occasionally grassy note and not as much of a milky aroma. Good for the price, but not what I was hoping for.

Still Good after 2 Years

When rinsing the tea, the scent that's left in the washed cup is a very sweet dark caramel. The taste is exactly as advertised, that of roasted yams, with a distinct hint of smoke in the exhale. I brewed by cooling the water a bit, which emphasized more of the implicit sweetness. I've discovered that hotter brews tend to bring out more of a "leafy" character. This is the first charcoal roasted tea I've tried, I've never tried the classics from Wuyi, Dancong or Anxi, but if this is a good representation of those styles, I have a lot of oolong to look forward to.

Likes: amazing flavor, beautiful packaging
Improvements: wish I could get more steeps from this tea
a new favorite!

This tea surpasses all other oolongs. It's so fragrant, complex, and smooth. My only complaint is that I can't get more than 2 steeps from it, and it's really only the first steep that has a lot of flavor.

Red Jade Black Tea

Not your usual black tea

I received a sample of Red Jade together with other teas I purchased a few years ago. I tried it when I received it, but I didn't like it back then - probably due to wrong brewing technique, as well as undeveloped palate. That's the reason why I left it there for such a long time! I came back to this tea today and found it incredibly complex and layered. I am still not sure I like it 100%, but it surely is one to try.
I brewed 4 g of tea in 120 ml of water at 90 °C using the gong fu method. The first brew (45 s) was very sweet and it had the kind of bitter-sweetness of molasses or chestnut honey; the bitterness was just a tiny hint, which balanced and completed the sweetness well. There was also a hint of something floral - maybe jasmine. The aftertaste is definitely sweet and honey-like. The second brew (35 s) added a lot more of that floral element to it: it was the main thing, overpowering everything else, though the aftertaste remained roughly same and added more woody notes. As I am not a fan of jasmine, I found this less appealing than the first brew, though I appreciated the complexity and evolution.
The third brew was longer, at roughly a minute, in order to experiment with strength. This was more of the same, with the floral element taking the leading role; it was however more muted, and there was an astringent note which I found very interesting as it balanced the floral taste (though it was very probably due to the longer infusion and I guess many won't like it!).
The fourth infusion led to less floral taste and more wood and astringency. The aftertaste also became less sweet.
Overall I am quite happy with this tea and although it is not among my favourites, I think it is well worth a try!

Absolutely wonderful product. Excellent customer service and great teas.

Flavorful!

My mother-in-law purchased this tea for me because this is her favorite. She favors products from Taiwan so I just assumed this is a good green tea and she naturally favored it because it is from Taiwan. After my first cup it by far my favorite! It is fresh, aromatic and truly engages my taste buds with slight notes of sweet floral. This is my only “go to” green tea!

Beautiful and functional

I got all 3 colors to store different oolong teas. Very useful to bring just enough tea to share with friends at group luncheons. Also bought some for friends as gifts.

Delicious

This is one of the best black teas I've tried, very smooth and with a thick, sweet molasses flavor, it's quickly becoming my go-to morning cup

Excellent value

For the price, you really can't do better for a milk oolong. It's soft and creamy and smooth, everything you want in a milk oolong. I would have been happy paying twice the price for this tea

Excellent tea, one of the best I've tried

Delicious, sweet and slightly floral aroma without a trace of tannins. A perfect morning tea.
