I've had oolong tea and tried various kinds across the world but they have a one note taste. My favorite is the Duck Shit Oolong tea because of that subtle longan and flavor. The aroma is fruity yet smoky and robust at the same time. To be honest, I was so busy the past 2 weeks and the tea sat staring at me before I poured myself a cup. Glad I finally did today (and kicking myself for why I didn't sooner!) because its nice to sit down and have a slow moment to enjoy!
I love this tea. First because of its robust, smoky, yet mild flavor. Second, the name is terrific and giving this to friends when they’ve had a crappy day is just a nice way to show someone you care during this crap year. Third because it’s sourced with integrity. And last, I gotta support my Asian American female entrepreneurs!

Duck Shit Oolong
I can’t recommend them enough. I’m a lifelong tea devotee and have greatly enjoyed stumbling into Three Gems and their thoughtful selections.
Fantastic way to try all of the varieties of amazing oolongs! Now that I know what I like best, time to order some full size bags!!!
6 Oolong Tea Sampler
I found out about Three Gems through a feature on Bon Appetit and immediately had to order the sampler pack to try out all of the offerings. Bamboo Peak was my absolute favorite of the bunch -- light flavored with notes of peach and butter. This will definitely be a regular in my tea rotation!
Fast delivery, delicious teas!
Three Gems teas are always awesome, and this is no exception. Always super high quality with excellent scent and flavor!
Duck shit is delicious! :D
5g Tea Sample (Free US Shipping)
This tea is absolutely beautiful. I love the flavor, and the flavor notes given are spot on. It's a nice balance between fruity and floral and I cannot recommend it enough.
I tend to like lighter roasts for teas and this one did not disappoint. I love how this tea tastes milky by itself. The fruity notes add depth and make it all the more delicious. What more could I ask for?
This sampler pack is great buy. Easy to identify your favorites! Makes a great gift for yourself/a friend/tea lover. I haven't had loose-leaf tea in awhile, so getting the pack was a fantastic way to explore the flavors and build the rituals again.
