DESCRIPTION

SILVER MOUNTAIN WATER
oolong tea (sample)

Often a favorite among connoisseurs, oolong tea is prized for its anti-aging properties and body-slimming effects. Silver Mountain Water is a classic, reserve-grade oolong with a smooth, creamy texture and a profoundly sweet, aromatic flavor. Sit back and savor this tea's flavorful echoes of sun-warmed figs, raisin sugar and honeysuckle.

Silver Mountain Water is lightly oxidized and closer in character to a green tea, but with an enhanced smoothness, floral aroma and fruity finish.  The exceptional quality and complex, fresh flavor of this tea makes it a staff favorite!  Highly recommended.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS:

  1. A great example of a high quality Oolong

    Posted by C B on 15th Jul 2019

    This is one of those lovely oolongs from Taiwan. The description says this is also called "Jade Oolong" or "Four Seasons". One heaping teaspoon of bright emerald unravels into a full infuser basket of leaves. The flavor was a tiny bit astringent so I don't think I need to use a full teaspoon for a mug. But the flavor otherwise was sweet, fruity, floral, slightly creamy and buttery and overall a high quality Taiwanese oolong. This seems to combine 99% of the flavor notes that most green oolongs usually have: fruity, floral, sweet, creamy, buttery. It's almost like an oolong of broad flavor categories rather than specific flavor details. Getting rid of that astringency by using less leaves would make it even better. I will admit this is a tough one to describe other than delicious. (But sometimes it's okay to just note how good a tea is... or isn't?)
    Steep #1 // 1 heaping teaspoon for a full mug // 18 minutes after boiling // 1 1/2 minute steep
    Steep #2 // 12 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
    Steep #3 // just boiled // 2 min


  2. Best tea for oolong lovers

    Posted by Birdsong on 25th Oct 2016

    I am a tea connoisseur and spend a lot of money on loose-leaf teas. We first purchased this brand and flavor when vacationing in Bermuda (for double the cost that it is here), and fell in love with its gentle, honest flavor. It was an immediate favorite, and I've gone back now to the Octavia website to purchase it in bulk over and over. This tea is my "happy place." Light flavor, you can get 2 solid infusions out of it (3 but the flavor lightens too much for me at 3), and be sure not to over-brew it (water should not burn it, and don't over-steep or the tannins will go bitter as in any green tea). Crystal clear flavor that is light and clean, best with a touch of honey. For those who prefer a robust flavored or spicy tea, this is not the tea for you. For those who prefer a soft oolong flavor that is clean with slightly sweet undertones, this is for you. My perfect brew for this tea is at about 3 minutes of steeping, then the leaves are removed and saved for the next infusion (I'll often save the latter for my evening tea, as the caffeine is usually brewed out in the first 2 minutes of steeping a tea).


  3. AMAZING

    If you are a fan of oolong, definitely try this tea. Very smooth with a great texture. This is my favorite tea right now.
