Smooth, bright orchid aroma throughout with a clean, refreshing finish.
As legend has it, ancient Buddhist Monks trained monkeys to gather the youngest leaves from the tip-top of wild tea trees for this special Imperial Reserve blend. The legend lives on, now with the deft hand-plucking of the broken, evenly sized leaves that unfurl to create a light, orchid aroma, and the highest grade of oolong in the world.

    Comments about Teavana Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

    If you truly understand Asian tea profiles, you will love this tea. If you exspect this to be the like English or American tea selections, move on. This teas is excellent when steeped correctly and at the right temp. It obvious that those who have given negative reviews are novice tea drinkers. This is a very fine tea.

        PICKED FOR A REASON

        Comments about Teavana Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

        Monkey picked oolong tea is a light herb that rests well in the stomach. It's a good balanced drink to start your day or end the night. It's flavorful taste is one that won't bore as you continue to drink, but leads you to another cup.

        I Love Oolong!

        By CJMasa

        from South Carolina

        Comments about Teavana Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

        I absolutely LOVE oolong teas, and this happens to be my favorite. It is on the expensive side, so it's definitely a treat of mine. I love blending it with other fruity herbal teas at times, but it really is perfect on it's own.

        After telling the sales person that I know nothing about tea, she sold me this as Pu-erh. Not impressed with Teavana or their sale tactics.

        Great Oolong

        By Smoke or Tea

        from Wahiawa, HI

        See all my reviews

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Teavana Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

        This oolong is very musty - but in a good way. It is a perfectly calming tea and pairs well with many fruitier green teas (my favorite pairing being the Sakura Allure).

        Mind the steeping time; it does get bitter quickly if steeped for too long. Otherwise, the taste is very soothing. I drink it both iced and hot, depending on my mood.

        The ability to steep multiple times is just a plus.

        I thought white tea was my favorite until I tried oolong...

        By Vian

        from Spokane, WA

        Comments about Teavana Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

        After my best friend taught me the ways of tea, I thought white tea was my favorite, with it's subtle flavor and just a little honey. Then I tried oolong. It has the same subtlety as white tea, but more floral, more complex. The first time I tried it, I thought it tasted like there were jasmine flowers in it (like jasmine green tea) but there wasn't! it just naturally has a lovely floral note to it. it's mild and clean and perfect with a little wildflower honey. Just be careful with this one: don't use too much. I used a couple tablespoons for a whole pot full, and when the tea plumped and unfurled, it ended up being over a cup of leaves! Way more than was necessary. I've been re-using the leaves and they're just as good the second and third times.

        Amazing tea! Worth the Price!

        By Sam

        from Flagstaff, AZ

        Comments about Teavana Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

        I love this tea! It helps me to relax when I need to, and gives me just enough energy to push me to wake up in the morning. The taste is a specific one that many people might not like, but I find myself craving it almost every day. I definitely recommend it if you like earthy teas! Like a more upscale green tea.

        I got two ounces of this stuff thinking I'd just have a cup every other day. It's not even a month later and I had to reorder because I already drank it all.

        Extremely disappointed

        By Lisha loves tea

        from Deep South

        Comments about Teavana Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

        I last had monkey-picked oolong from Teavana almost 10 years ago. I splurged for Christmas and picked up a few ounces. This batch was not what I remembered, and more of a green tea than a black, with none of the rich flavor I recall. When I saw it in the tin at the store, I questioned if it was the same and was assured that it was. Wrong. I should have stuck to my vow of years ago to never purchase from Teavana again. Lesson learned.
