Less than $6 for 2 ounces?...I couldn't resist :)Read Full Review
The tiny curly leaves smell of earth and perhaps a cinnamon sweetness.
I brewed this "semi-western" style (I normally use gong fu style). Using 4 grams of leaf in a 10 ounce teapot.
With this particular setup, my goal is to get two infusions (about 20oz of tea in ...

As mentioned in a previous review, the 100 tea bags in the box aren't sealed in any way, so the first thing I did upon opening the box was to put the bags into an airtight cannister.Read Full Review
The initial aroma of the tea reminds me of damp oak leaves with a hint of maltiness. The flavor is tannic and astringent, but is so mi...

Great Yunnan. Wonderful aroma, smooth mellow taste. Amber liquor. This was a good choice.Read Full Review

In my latest black tea frenzy, I decided to give this one a try since it seems pretty unique.Read Full Review
It is apparently a black (more fully oxidized) version of the Water Fairy oolong, which interested me.
I've seen that various companies offer black tea versions of oolongs such as Tie Guan Yin and even Alishan tea.

So ever since a local shop stopped carrying my favorite teas I haven't really purchased much black tea lately. Read Full Review
I've been impressed with this company's teas so far, and went ahead and added this one to a recent order.
The aroma of the dry, thin, slightly curly leaves is very nice...caramel and maybe a little fresh ...

Strong flavor and aroma. Delightful Yunnan. I bought these for dining out. When I go out for breakfast, I take some of these along. I enjoy this tea and find it much more flavorful than the national brand the restaurant offers.Read Full Review
Style: Black Tea – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 31st, 2016
This is a hard tea to review. I greatly enjoyed drinking it, but was not overwhelmed with uniqueness of any kind. Rather, it was simply enjoyable. The flavor has hints of caramel, honey, and sweetness with a slight astringency. The cup is very smooth. I would recommend as a black tea, but it is nothing unique, albeit v...Read Full Review

Dry, this tea has a very subtle aroma. The liquor is amber colored. Overall, a bit milder than I expected from previous black snail.Read Full Review
Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China94 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 16th, 2016
A lovely tea, mellow, and complex, among my favorite Lapsang Souchongs ever sampled. Thank you again to TeaVivre for the sample! This is a traditional Chinese lapsang souchong, it lacks the strong smoky aroma that the more widely-known style of tea popular in the West has. Compared to other traditional Lapsang Souch...Read Full Review

This was the most disappointing pure tea I've ever tried from Harney & Sons.Read Full Review
Dry leaf not very aromatic, but the aroma is pleasant. The leaf is pretty, with fine wiry pieces, fairly finely broken...the faint aroma suggests spice and dried fruit, like fig or date.
The brewed cup is surprisingly lacking in aroma. ...

Apr. 25th, 2016
I love when I find a tea that is unique and different, and this one certainly fits that description. My first impression is that of burnt sugar/caramel. The liquor is a beautiful light golden brown color. The aroma is like a huge wave of burnt caramel and chocolate hitting all of your senses. The taste is a more balanc...Read Full Review

Apr. 22nd, 2016
I have had a lot of Keemun, but never before sampled Hao Ya A. The overall experience of drinking this tea was somewhat different from what I expected. It's similar, but recognizably different from the Hao Ya B, and I'm not convinced that I like it better. I like both, and this one is not that much more expensive (s...Read Full Review

I thought this was an exceptional tea and was my favorite traditional Keemun ever sapmled.Read Full Review
Dry leaf is fine and dark in color, pleasantly aromatic, and the aroma is quite complex, it suggests fruit, spice, and dried flowers, a little like potpourri, with vegetal and chocolatey notes. The smell reminds me of Christm...
Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China93 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 16th, 2016
Appearance: The dry leaf is intact, curled, and often intertwined with other leaves, making it hard to easily separate. The leaf is pure bud covered in a light golden-orange down that comes off on the fingers when handled without care. Some of the underlying dark-brown leaf is visible closer to the non-terminal end of ...Read Full Review

I loved this tea. It reminded me a lot of the Spring Keemun from Andrews & Dunham, both in the smell and taste, and the appearance of the leaf.Read Full Review
Mild but pleasant smell to the dry leaf, which looks very curly in shape, little snail-like curls a lot like bi luo chun. Smells sweeter than other Keemun Mao Feng, but st...

This was a wonderful black tea. Overall it was very mellow, mild, and smooth. Read Full Review
I steeped this near boiling, around 200 degrees, in my gaiwan with 5g of tea. The first infusion brought forth a light orange liquor with a light black tea taste and hints of chocolate. It is almost sweet with no astringency. The aroma is...

Apr. 8th, 2016
This tea is really strange. I enjoy it most when I don't think of it as a black tea, and I still don't know exactly how I feel about it. I disagree with Harney's assertion that this is "vigorously assertive": to me it lacks the strength and punch of a black tea, and in many respects is more like an oolong or even a m...Read Full Review

Truly superb! I haven't tried that many Golden Monkey teas, but after brewing this one multiple times, I think it is my favorite. Its leaf is packed with flavor and, although it had the smoothness of other golden monkey teas, I found it had a strength that was lacking from other examples of this style that I had tried...Read Full Review

I thought this an excellent tea and it is definitely among my favorite Dian Hong or Yunnan Red (black teas) that I've ever sampled. It's one of many samples I recently ordered from Harney & Sons.Read Full Review
I chose this for a very cold morning, because I find Yunnan teas to often have a powerful warming quality, and I found i...

High quality tea but quite expensive. Can easily get two infusions of great tasting tea. Recommend adding teaspoon of Tupelo honey. My favorite of all teas.Read Full Review

This tea is rich and bold with slightly sweet fruity smell and taste. I would say the most prominent taste comparison would be cinnamon or allspice. It reminds me a little of Italian super Tuscans. Read Full Review
I have tried many of the Adagio black teas and this and the black pearls are my two favorite.

Wow, this is a truly exceptional tea.Read Full Review
The dry leaf looks and smells intricate and beautiful: the appearance is fine, wiry leaves with a dusty appearance, a mix of gold and rich brown, and the aroma is very intense, strongly malty, like rye malt, with hints of spice, and the suggestion of sweetness. There's a strong...

I brewed this tea multiple times and it consistently disappointed me.Read Full Review
The dry leaf of this tea, which is quite broken, had a weak aroma that reminded me of a fresh loaf of rye bread at a mediocre deli.
When water hit the leaves, the aroma developed into an array of light smokiness, deep vegetal notes, and fruitin...
