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, placed into the lapel 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!

A second chance review

I am giving this tea a new review. I'm not sure why my first cup wasn't what I expected. But I have to say I have had several more cups and thuis gardenia oolong has been all an more then I expected with each new cup. It is a sublime blending of flavors of both the natural floral of the oolong and the gardenia that seem to be layered as the taste of the cup opens in the mouth one moment it is a light ethereal floral oolong. And the next it is this amazingly light wonderful gardenia flavor that slowly fills the mouth and for me a slight silky buttery taste. It is Fantastic and very WELL DONE!

Nice floral tea

This tea makes a wonderful brew although for me it isn't as floral and gardenis scented as I expected. But the tea itself is quality oolong and brews a wonderfully satisfying tea

E.v.D.

To be honest, I had never had Gardinia tea before. However, this tea totally convinced me that it was BRILLIANT. I loved the flovor, a soft hint of floral ragrance, subtle taste of the Oolong; it was like drinking morning dew dripping from the flower petals.
