Frontier Natural Products, Organic Se Chung Special Oolong Tea, 16 oz (453 g)12 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2017
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

A woody astringency and the nuance of fresh peaches distinguish the remarkable aroma and flavor of this tea. Oolong is also referred to by its Chinese pinyin translation "Wu Long."
Oolong (English) or Wu Long (Chinese pinyin translation) tea is a partially oxidized tea and has flavor characteristics of both green and black teas. The fresh leaves are withered for one to two days and the leaves are then rolled to release enzymes (needed for the next step). Then the tea leaves are allowed to oxidize, although for a shorter period than for black tea, and the process is stopped before it is completed. The tea is fired (heated) to prevent further oxidation and to dry the tea. Oolong teas can vary significantly in flavor depending on when the oxidization process is interrupted having more of a green tea character if interrupted early in the process and more black tea character the longer oxidation continues.
To enjoy, pour 6 oz. boiling water over a measured teaspoon of tea. Steep 5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
iHerb Customer Reviews
One of my favorite everyday afternoon oolong teas. Don't oversteep, or it's bitter. Some years harvest are better than others. Last year's crop was OK, but the previous year was excellent. Best deal is purchase by the pound - it should keep for 6-9 months if stored in a tighly lidded tin and opened only when needed to replenish smaller storage tins that you use daily. Two thumbs up for good-bang-for-buck organic tea that satisfies.
This tea is very light, almost twisted, brown in color. Fragrant and tasty. I drink a cup of tea every morning. Этот чай очень легкий, почти не скручен, коричневого цвета. Ароматный и вкусный. Чашку этого чая завариваю каждое утро.
