I always liked the oolong I used to get at our local Chinese restaurant but I never found true love for oolong until Rishi opened my eyes to what real oolong is supposed to taste like. Then I discovered Mountain Tea and could never go back to the cheap bagged oolong again.
The best thing about loose leaf oolong is watching it unfurl from a little ball into a large leaf. This is not a tea you should ever brew in a tea ball or small infuser. And as one of my friends can tell you, do not ever spill it down the drain and then run hot water thinking you are going to flush it away...you will bust a pipe!
I have customers mentioning the health benefits of oolong. Yes there are many. Oolong is said to boost the metabolism and is Dr. Oz recommended. However, I drink it because I love the vegetal flavor of the plain oolongs and the fruity goodness of the blends. Even my sister who does not like tea really enjoys Peach Oolong.
My motto is "You can never go wrong with oolong!"
