Super soft and super comfy, love the design
This is a great tasting tea. Still has hints of a Darjeeling, but the roasted notes of an oolong. Only used 1 tablespoon for 500ml of water, so half strength compared to label. Brewed at 195F for 3 min.
Oolong tea is one of my favorites, and I drink A LOT of it. The Ruby Oolong from Young Mountain is definitely in my top five. The flavor description is as advertised on the can, so I won't rehash that. But I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a darker oolong that's still got a lot of the classic oolong flavor. Also recommend using a tad bit more than the instructions say, but steeping on the short side. I use 6 grams per 14 oz of water; and steep for just under 3 minutes the first round and it's great.
It is nice to see a new purveyor for the Makaibari Estate. This offering is a good example of the type. It brews up smooth and has many of the expected notes for a first flush Darjeeling. It is attractively priced for such a tea. Perhaps it is because it is not SFTGFOP! This version is "worth the price," but for a little more a more refined tea can be purchased elsewhere.
By far my favorite green tea on the market! And you can find some good stuff from companies in Oregon. Support Young Mountain at all costs. These are the type of pearls you should be clutching. Happy Drinking!
Best quality tea I've ever had. Definitely recommend.
By far the best quality tea I've ever had. Would definitely recommend.
Love this tea. My 1st time ordering from Young Mountain but I'll be back!
Had it at some friends' house and knew I had to order it immediately. Very happy I did and love the tea!
This variety pack is amazing. It’s fun to pick which tea I’m going to have today. Love that it has temperature, measurement and time to steep on each tea :)
I drink a lot of tea (one or two pots every day) and I have to say that the organic Darjeeling Ruby Oolong is now my absolute favorite! Rich, chocolate flavor. Really soothing.
I normally have three different black teas in my collection, adequate for my needs. When it was time to resupply YM was out of stock on one of my favorites. So, it was time to try something new. Their pitch for Kumaon Black drew me in. I took the whole pound to a job site where I have time and equipment to do a good job of making tea. I was surprised but delighted with the results and took a portion home to sample under typical conditions. Still pretty good. Nice to have a fourth that I circulate into my mix occasionally. This tea has excellent flavor and fortitude to take half and half. Not a fan of second steep in most tea, this included. Fresh water, fresh tea, clean cup, each time.
I have been drinking NGB tea as my main daily for about 4-5 years. It is a consistently clean and bright, enough backbone to take the cream I prefer in my morning cup. Sacrilege I know. This tea is also forgiving; I am usually careful in my brewing but can occasionally get distracted. Even after ten minutes I have been relieved to find it is still quite drinkable. With apologies to Young Mountain I find this tea does not make a second cup; fresh leaves every time!
I have been buying my bulk tea via internet, mail order before that, for forty years. I would like to commend YM tea for cleanliness of operation. They appear to be most careful in their handling, I have not once been surprised with an off flavor. It only takes one leaf of a green tea left in a scoop or on the scale, or the hint of hand lotion to spoil a cup, or a pound, of expensive tea. Not an issue here. Thanks
The tea from Young Mountain is always the best, as is their awesome customer service! If you like great teas, want to support local farmers, and love excellent customer service then you should buy from Young Mountain.
Very positive experience.
