Starwest Botanicals, Oolong Tea, 1 lb9 Reviews
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.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Partially oxidized tea yielding a mild aromatic flavor between that of black and green tea. Oolong tea is commonly served as the house tea in chinese restaurants in the US.
Oolong tea contains a large quantity of polyphenol. According to research, it has become clear that polyphenol is the ingredient that generates the delicious flavor unique to oolong tea and also promotes beauty and health.
Hot Tea Brewing Method:
Oolongs teas are best enjoyed when the leaves are briefly infused with hot water which is then poured off. The tea is then reinfused and tea is poured to the lucky guests after about 1 minute. The leaves may be reinfused several times, with each resulting infusion yielding a different liquor from the proceeding cup.
Iced Tea Brewing Method:
(Makes 1 quart). Place 6 teaspoons of Oolong into a heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into the pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
iHerb Customer Reviews
This is a wonderful Oolong! Upon opening, it had a nice scent and seems very fresh. It's the typical brown tea (resembling a gunpowder tea) and it has a nice, Oolong flavor. I like my tea strong and this fits the bill. Just a little bit unfurls upon steeping to a huge volume of nice, whole leaves. Before I ordered, I noticed there were only 2 reviews in my language (English), both negative. But one of them says "I expected the typical green leaves" and since Oolong is not supposed to be green (since it's partially oxidized) I ignored that and decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did, as it's a great tea especially at this price. Recommended!
the pack is very big, so the tea is quite cheep. but don't think it's anyway close to normal oolong tea.
