Zhi House Blend Plum Oolong is a smooth and relaxing treat. Our Shui Xian oolong is blended with rich, succulent plum flavor to make this Plum Oolong.

Plum Oolong yields a natural fruit flavor, and a gentle warming cup. While the plum flavor has a nice depth of character on its own, we enjoy how it enhances rather than covers up the oolong leaves with this Plum Oolong.

The Plum Oolong was designed to soothe the soul and provide an evocative tea drinking experience in its simplicity. A great tea needs little more than to be enjoyed with friends or a good book, Plum Oolong is no exception.

A little more about the Shui Xian: these oolong leaves are about 70% oxidized and are similar to our Wu Yi or Sechong but a bit milder with more floral notes on the back end. This Plum Oolong tea can be resteeped with fantastic results.

Hint: Plum Oolong makes a superb sun tea.

    This has become my favorite oolong and I'm sad that I only bought a sample size instead of a tin. The plum flavor is notable but not overpowering and it is still there even after subsequent steepings. To me it also has a hint of smokiness. It's superb!

    I am new to oolongs. I tried two cups of this tea tonight and did not like it. I am still in the discovery phase of oolong tea tasting, so it just might not be my preference.

    My doctor recommended that I drink tea for the health benefits. I was told that Oolong is great for weight loss, digestion and is packed with vitamins and minerals. I replaced tea for soda, started exercising and feel fantastic. This subtle fruity flavor is my new best friend.

    Love it! Just got a sample of this today, and I LOVE it! I will definitely be buying more.

    My favorite oolong. Sweet, earthy, and the plum helps keep it from tasting like it's another fruit flavored tea that's been doused with regular ole honey or sugar. Distinct and exotic, it's great on ice, too.

    I love this tea, we got it at a home show and have bought several containers of it.

    A blended or flavored tea that has numerous good qualities. A solid, hearty tea base, a natural fruit flavor, and a good presentation. The ownly downside I have experienced is a loss of the plum flavor upon subsequent steeps.

    Lightweight tea. I tried the suggestions on the box and ended up with a weak tea.

  30. July 30, 2007 Review by Christa

    Exraordinary. When I looked at it, I didn't think much of it, but the aroma was enticing. The steeped tea is really rich and aromatic. I give it a 5 of 5.

    Good tea. I added sugar and it was better.

Water: 195°F | Leaves: 1.5 teaspoons per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t overboil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time
Leaves can be resteeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling weight. It activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglycerides. Studies have confirmed that a 2-3 cup per day intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and controlling obesity.
The history of tea in China is long and complex. The Chinese have enjoyed tea for millennia. Scholars hailed the brew as a cure for a variety of ailments; the nobility considered the consumption of good tea as a mark of their status, and the common people simply enjoyed its flavor.

Tea was first discovered by the Chinese Emperor Shennong in 2737 BC. It is said that the emperor liked his drinking water boiled before he drank it so it would be clean, so that is what his servants did. One day, on a trip to a distant region, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from the wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned a brownish color, but it was unnoticed and presented to the emperor anyway. The emperor drank it and found it very refreshing, and cha (tea) was born.
