Suggestions for main stream companies offering Oolong?

by MTHall720 » Dec 19th, '17, 16:17

I realize most people on this forum probably get only to the best tea but I want to try Oolong yet stick to a budget friendly source. Anyone know if any of the following companies have a fairly light, somewhat sweet or smoky Oolong:Rishi, Eden Organic, Stash, Two Leaves, Republic of Tea, or other easily obtainable sources?
Thanks for any and all suggestions.

I’ve ordered a variety of loose teas from Rishi over the years and they’ve been dependably good. The only oolong I can recall ordering is the ruby oolong from Thailand and I’ve been happy with that.

I'm not sure what price range you consider budget friendly, but I've found Yunnan Sourcing to offer much bang for the buck. They also have a USA site if you live there.

If you’re in the UK then Canton Teas has a good range. Otherwise, I’d agree re Yunnan Sourcing, and its sister site, Taiwan Sourcing (personally I love a LiShan...)

Do you mean Canton Tea Co?
Do you know what is happening to them? They are getting less and less products on the website.
