Studies done on the health benefits of oolong teas are not as numerous and can be more confusing than those done on black, green or white teas. The nature of oolong teas, being so diverse, makes grouping them for study quite difficult.
Our Formosa Oolong is oxidized roughly halfway to black and therefore shares the health benefits of both green and black teas. Our Silk Oolong is only about one-eighth oxidized so the health benefits would more approximate those of a green tea.

Truly Smooth and Buttery
I am enjoying a nice mug of Silk Oolong as I write this. Very smooth and buttery. I only wish I could buy a ribbon box of this in pyramids so that I could enjoy it a little easier on the go

One of my favorites
Every time I drink this tea, the flavor reminds me of the smell of the beautiful pink flowers of a mimosa tree. It is so delicious. It truly is smooth!

I love this tea
I love this tea... but it is too expensive.. and I wish it came in a pack of tea bags ... but they only sell this one in a loose leaf container..

It says smooth and buttery. Not just words. Imagine it as reality. I highly recommend this pleasant experience.

I was never a big fan of oolong tea, but after trying this, I am! When they say it is smooth, they weren't kidding - it's unbelievable. And the smell is wonderful~ (I sure hope it becomes available again soon!!)

The Silk Oolng is my new favorite. If you like a smooth light tea this is a must try.

"The aroma of this tea is exceptional"
"This is one of the smoothest Oolong teas I’ve tasted, one of the reasons they call it “Silk Oolong”! It’s truly yummy, with or without sweetener."

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
