Brewed myself a pot of this Oolong from Ito En. It’s by far, hands down, my absolute favorite tea of all time. A very smooth, earthy taste with a room filling aroma. Perfect in the morning or on a cold winter day.

Highly recommended.


I really want to try this one. . .


It’s my absolute favorite. I was disappointed to find out that you can’t order it online anymore :(


really? Hmmm…..they aren’t too far from me. . .one of their locations is Brooklyn. . .i could find out if theirs another way. . .

Big disappointment. Looks and smells wonderful, but tastes like a mediocre teabag on its 6th infusion no matter how hard I brew. At least it was cheap.
