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...

The aroma is mild and sweet, with notes of dried cherry and peonies (aha, so that is where the name comes from!) with a very delicate note of nasturtium and raisins, vaguely reminding me of a Darjeeling.Read Full Review
Ok, I have to say it, HOLY MOLY FLOWERS! Hehe, the taste is super flowery, with a blend of peony and honeysuckle...

First up, the aroma is like spring time, specifically it evokes my favorite flower (ok one of them, I really love flowers) peony! It also has the aroma of delicate orange blossoms, chestnuts, and just a hint of mown grass and honey. The notes are delicate, reminding me more of a breeze bringing in these aromas through ...Read Full Review

Served in Velvet Sky Bakery in Jenkintown.Read Full Review
This tea was incredibly pleasant and very enjoyable. I love rose-scented tea, and this one smells intensely of rose.
Brews up a rich light-brown cup, relatively clear. Aroma very strong of rose, pleasant, and sharp. The base tea is very pleasant, but is somewhat backg...
Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: Hunan, China73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10

This is a lovely jasmine tea. I just brewed this side by side with jasmine pearls from another company, and these definitely win.Read Full Review
The aroma is strong and lovely. The tea was steeped for 3 minutes and the flavor is strong, without being overpowering. This would be a great choice for anyone who loves jasmine green ...
Style: Flavored Tea – Region: Hunan, China70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10

The aroma is dry and a bit loamy, like a dry forest floor. There are also notes of dry leather and very faint roses. After the tea is steeped the aroma is malty and the rose is much stronger, it is heavy and rich. Read Full Review
The first steeping of the little heart shaped nugget of tea happiness is quite rich and filling. Drink...
Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Hunan, China67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 6/10
Feb. 1st, 2014
This tea had a strong jasmine scent that was very pleasant. The green tea wasn't as distinct of a scent for me, though once I began sipping it was definitely counter-balancing the jasmine. This one tasted a *lot* like flowering teas I've had in the past.Read Full Review
For the second steeping, I added a bit of honey, but found tha...
Style: Junshan Yinzhen – Region: Hunan, China70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 6/10
Nov. 8th, 2013
I really wanted to like this tea. "Camellia Sinensis" has a very good reputation and I'm a huge fan of Jun Shan Yin Zhen. Unfortuantely, while this particular tea is GOOD and has a near-excellent value, it isn't GREAT. I steeped 2.5g at 190F for 3 minutes.This tea is known for being mild in flavour yet even with this s...Read Full Review
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hunan, China73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 8/10
Sep. 30th, 2013
The aroma of this delightfully fuzzy tea reminds me of a mix between the muscatel of darjeeling and the delicate green of a Pai Mu Dan. Once the tea is brewed it takes on more of a floral aroma which blends well the the notes that are already present. Read Full Review
The first steep is mild and vegetal with notes of mown hay. The ...
Style: Mao Jian Green Tea – Region: Guzhang, Hunan, China77 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 8/10
Jun. 7th, 2013
The dry leaf of this tea had the most intensely pleasing aroma of any green tea I have ever encountered.Read Full Review
Upon drinking the brewed tea, it's a little less amazing but still good. There's a lightness and sweetness in this tea that I've only ever encountered in green teas considerably higher in price.
Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Hunan, China80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Jan. 2nd, 2012
This is not the sort of tea I tend to like, but I loved this one, which I think is a testimony to its quality. I tend to like stronger-tasting teas with more bitterness. But I enjoyed this tea greatly.Read Full Review
Visually, the loose-leaf of this tea looks more like a Bai Hao or Oriental Beauty oolong than other Chinese oolon...

Another delightful, fascinating, and unusual tea from Imperial Tea Garden. The dry leaf is exclusively tips, slightly twisted, and shows white downy hairs. Its aroma is airy and light, but it smells a bit like tobacco, and has toasty, grassy tones too, with a hint of camphor.Read Full Review
The description of this tea confused m...

A fascinating green tea completely unlike anything I've ever sampled before, although admittedly, it's my first tea from Hunan province so that may explain the novelty for me. The tightly-rolled tea looks almost oolong-like, rather unlike Bi-luo chun or gunpowder green tea, but upon brewing, it unfurls to look more li...Read Full Review
