Style: Black Tea – Region: Hunan, China100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 13th, 2015
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...

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: Mao Jian Green Tea – Region: Guzhang, Hunan, China77 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5

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

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...
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hunan, China91 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 14th, 2011
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...
Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Hunan, China77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 12th, 2011
This is the best Jasmine tea I've had from a tea bag. It is better than a lot of loose-leaf jasmine tea I've tried.Read Full Review
Exceptionally smooth for a jasmine. Floral without being perfumey. Base tea is vegetal and mellow like a very good pouchong / bao zhong. The base tea has a strong floral character and it's hard to ...
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hunan, China83 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 5th, 2011
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
