Jade Oolong by Rishi Tea


One of my favorites! This tea is very similar to Teavana’s discontinued Iron Buddha Oolong. Rishi’s Jade Oolong is a greener oolong which lacks the roasted nuances of Iron Goddess of Mercy or Tae Guan Yin, but instead shines with a clean, refreshingly mossy floral depth. I most enjoy it steeped longer than the directions suggest which increases the astringency. Large deep green leaves edged with golden red and brown unfurl beautifully to fill the cup or strainer. Mixes wonderfully with light fruit tisanes and white teas and can be steeped multiple times.
