Our Silk Jade Oolong was so named after its balanced flavor profile, which lands somewhere in between buttery, creamy, and slightly floral. Its Qing Xin cultivar, also known as Green Heart, was first popularized in Taiwan but has since made its way to newer tea-producing countries such as Vietnam, where this one was grown, picked, and processed. Enjoy for multiple infusions.

What is a reserve tea? Reserve teas are teas that offer in limited quantities due to the availability of the tea itself.
I love this tea. It’s smooth, sweet, kind of floral but also kind of buttery. It’s perfect for any time of day.
I don't know how I went this long without it, so smooth, mellow, and flavorful. Easily one of my favorites.
