I purchased oolong #8 last year and loved it. I went on to purchased it again and I'm only finding formosa oolong #8. Is this the same tea?

thanks, Kathy

I was not familiar with Adagio a year ago Kathy, but based on what I can gather, I'd have to say that I believe it is the same oolong. I was not wowed by it however, and Iike the more expensive #40, though even better oolongs are available outside Adagio.

Thanks. I'll have to give the #40 a try.
