Our Golden Flower Oolong is grown in the misty mountains Anxi County in Fujian, China under its given name of Huang Jin Gui. It is a rolled leaf style, low oxidation oolong that offers sweet, floral notes of honeysuckle, osmanthus and a subtle creaminess. All this lingers and provides well for those who enjoy multiple infusions. Savor its lingering, layered nuances as an everyday, oasis of serenity tea. Steep at 195°F for 2-3 minutes

      My husband is really picky, but he loves this one.

      This one's a little greener than I normally drink, but it was still good. The smell was really grassy, but the taste was nice and floral

      This oolong was light and delicate when brewed--a great tasting and smelling tea!

      Subtly sweet and lightly floral, beautiful Oolong at a great price.

      A very simple and nice oolong. I like to drink this after a meal.

      Serene, subtle, and floral, but really shines as a iced tea, where it's refreshing and bright if a bit mild.

      One of my to go tea when I can't make up a decision. Very simple but always helps bring your mood up

      A little too mild for my taste. Maybe longer steeping or multiple brews would help. I will try that next time, but as of now, I don't think I'd offer again. EDIT: TRIED WITH new teapot with proper Temps and a second steeping. This is now a new fave!

      I'm usually not a fan of floral teas, but this is light enough that I enjoy it. It has a creamy and slightly sweet vegetal oolong base, with light floral notes that are stronger in the aroma than the taste. Very enjoyable.

      Earthy but good, not a tea you'd drink if you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, but it does hit the spot.

      Very earthy flavor and aroma, it almost tastes like soil. Not terrible, but I probably wouldn't buy it again.

      This is one of my favorite teas. I drink this in the mornings, at night, at work... pretty much all the time. If I have a cup in my hand (and I pretty much always do) theres a fair chance its Golden Flower.

      Smooth like an oolong, but earthy like a matcha tea. It's light in every respect with hints of floral flavor. Not my preferred cup, but very likely be someone else's!

      This tea is the best, it has become one of my favorites. Lovely clear yellowish/green color with a lovely lightly floral bouquet, somewhat reminiscent of jasmine. Oddly it tastes a bit like gemechi pop when drinking. It's very light and refreshing, delicious and quite affordable by the pound.

      I'm not really one for flower teas, but I was intrigued and decided to give this a shot. It smells lovely - rather like jasmine. It did have me worried for what it would taste like though. Thankfully, the flavor is not overpowering with flower like other flower teas I've had. This is nicely balanced. It also doesn't suffer from a fake, medicinal quality as some flower teas do. I'm still not sure if flower teas are quite for me, but if any were it would likely be this one.

      The only problem I have with this tea is that I never make enough of it at one time. It's a lovely, light tasting tea that isn't too sweet.

      Absolute favorite afternoon summer tea! Reminds me of eating honeysuckle as a kid. The oolong is mild and the floral flavor stands out wonderfully!
