Gardenia Flower Oolong 

***There are NO artificial flavors or chemicals added to this tea!***

This silky smooth, fragrantly sweet oolong caught us off guard. While strong on the first steep, this tea quickly mellows out to one of the most florally smooth and fragrant teas we have on the site. The Gardenia 'flavor profile' is one of the most sought after in high-quality oolongs and there is a good reason. When done well, it is very enjoyable.

Gardenia flowers have been used as medicine, for perfume and placed into the lapels of gangsters but we have never seen it made into a tea. Especially one as smooth as this. We are excited to bring it into the shop!

And at this price point, this is one of the best-value teas we have on the site right now. Perfect for those new to tea, as gifts, or for those with a retail shop or drinks business. If you would like larger orders, this tea will be one of the first that will be launched with our wholesale program in the summer of 2019!

This is a perfect tea

I want to have tea with friends just so I can make them drink this. It's light and floral and sweet and magical and wonderful and this, this is what tea is about.

Strawberry Pie Double Take

This tea brought immediate aromas of the most delicious strawberry pie as soon as I placed the leaves in my warmed gaiwan! 35% oxidation and smooth, this machine/handpicked spring tea is a fresh treat! I was not expecting such a lasting impression! This proves that 'scented' teas when done right can be both powerful and mellow at the same time!

Not my cup of tea

Somehow this wasn't as floral as I was expected, and it just didn't hit any spectacular spots for me. It's a very good quality tea and I think it would make a great daily drinker for others, but I just didn't find myself ever reaching for it.

A secret

This is a fabulous tea by itself, but I discovered that it takes even better when brewed 50:50 with the Pear Mountain Oolong. The combination is outworldly. Give it a try :)

A lovely tea

Light but substantial. I even accidentally oversteeped it and it still tasted delicate (and not bitter), which is an indication of quality. I expect nothing less from Mountain Stream Teas, though. 10/10 fantastic tea.
