post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for Wu-long (oolong) tea but can't find it anywhere.
You can purchase it as grocery stores but i haven't been able
to locate it yet..anyone know where i can get it at?

Do you have any tea specialty stores around that may stock it or special order it for you? Or, have you checked online? I'm not really a tea person (I'm a lipton kind of girl) so I know I'm not much help. I hope you find some.

Did you check out The Republic of Tea's website. When you sign up for their catalogs they always send a complimentary tea sample.

A health food or supplement store should have a good selection

Oh, I love tea ... probably have 10 diff kinds at home now

For the Asian teas, I try to get the Asian brands ... I think you can taste the "tea-ness" more . Ten-Ren makes very good Chinese teas & sells a good variety of oolong teas, and the prices are reasonable:

P.S. If you like that light, almost floral aromatic tea, try the Jasmine varieties, esp. Jasmine Green Tea.

Try a speciality Chinese/Oriental shop/grocery store for it. I haven't seen in local stores. Green teas are plentiful, but not the special oolong one.

We get a lot of the Bigalow teas - about 5-6 different kinds. I have a wooden "tea house" with 3 drawers to store tea. We mix and match the teas. Some of our favorites are the chai teas, vanilla caramel, cherry vanilla, mint, etc.

I buy all my herbal teas from a place online. http://www.adagio.com/ I think they have premo tea there and they carry oolong tea. This one though is my fave http://www.adagio.com/herbal/wild_st...7f195580d9d7e2.

actually, orange pekoe is a black tea, as is pekoe cut black tea. green tea is green. the only 'red' tea i know of is rooibos, which isn't acutally from the tea plant.
