DESCRIPTION

SILVER MOUNTAIN WATER
oolong tea (tin)

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.

  1. Best tea for oolong lovers

    Posted by Birdsong on 1st Aug 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).


  2. better smell/taste from the second steep and the third steep!

    I had expressed disappointment when I tried this tea for the first time, but I have since had a change of heart. I'm on the 3rd cup and it gets better with time. Please rescind my previous review. I've since worked out and with clearer sense of smell/taste, this tea is amazing and well worth the price!


  3. DIsappointed

    I purchased this because it was a staff pick. At $25.00 a tin, I expected soo much more. I'm really disappointed. Love the peach ginger white tea though.
