After 10 years of drinking this tea regularly, I’m bumping up the rating.

I normally choose loose-leaf, but sometimes a teabag sealed in mylar foil is called for. This has become my go-to bagged Oolong tea in terms of freshness, value, and flavor.

It’s perfect for traveling, camping, a quick-fix when I don’t want to deal with loose leaf, or for keeping the office shelves stocked.

I’m bumping this tea a solid 99/100 based solely on the quality and value for the low price. This is the cheapest enjoyable and desirable tea I’ve ever found.

Be careful: ONLY the individually mylar-bagged tea is this good. They also sell visually similar tea in different packages that are not individually sealed, and that tea is dramatically lower quality and freshness.

Flavors: Butter, Creamy, Floral, Forest Floor, Grass, Hay, Mineral, Roasted, Vegetal

I’ve been a lover of tea for as long as I can remember. A hot cup of Bigelow Constant Comment will bring back a flood of memories of working at a summer camp outside Yosemite when I was 18. When I’m sick with a cold there’s nothing that helps more than Celestial Seasoning’s Lemon Zinger with a heaping spoonful of honey.

Now that I’m older I’ve learned to appreciate delicate and complex oolong and green teas. Right now I’m discovering I really like teas from Thailand. (Going beyond Thai Iced Tea, which I’ve always loved).
