Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 8th, 2015
Surprisingly good, though not a favorite. It has a relatively dark/roasted flavor from the tea (which isn't my favorite but was done well for what it is) and a lighter grapefruit flavor than I expected based on the smell of the dry leaf. The citrus flavoring really improved this style of oolong for me.Read Full Review

Very soothing tea. This reminds me a lot of a tea I've tried before, but I honestly can't figure out which one. It tastes, perhaps, similar to a good milky oolong, even though that's a different kind?Read Full Review
Silky and slightly floral, no bitterness--a great tea for sipping while relaxing. I'll update the value rating afte...
Style: Four Seasons Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5

A lovely, smooth oolong. I brought the water to 185 °F and steeped it for a few minutes. It has a hint of herbaceousness, almost floweriness, and overall tastes like a very solid, everyday tea. I wonder how it would do if left to steep longer, as I like my teas strong. I experienced no bitterness or anything unpleasan...Read Full Review

Very interesting tea. It has a lightly green smell that's pleasant. Unfortunately, I overbrewed the first tea slightly, so it had a slight bitterness. But the kind of bitterness that I imagine people who like bitterness would actually enjoy. I overbrewed it because it looked pale and thin and seemed to diffuse rather s...Read Full Review
Style: Milky Oolong – Region: Nantou, Taiwan80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5

Wow, this is quite a different tea from any others I've tried. Its flavor is at once vegetal, silky, savory, and a little salty. It's almost broth-like in its flavor and texture, but far more smooth. It tastes like a tea that would be good in the winter when you're craving something substantial and comforting, but not ...Read Full Review

Started off as a fairly nice cup of tea, but ended up a little bland for my taste. It didn't really feel distinctive to me. To be fair, though, pure oolongs aren't my favorite of the pure teas. The tea appeared to diffuse slowly and to, therefore, brew up weak for my taste. It didn't have any bad flavors, per se, but t...Read Full Review

I definitely noticed a nutty/roasted flavor and aroma in this tea. That isn't my favorite flavor to find in tea, but it tastes of good quality and would likely be very enjoyable to someone who *does* have that preference.Read Full Review
I brewed it at 195 °F and steeped it for 3 minutes. This gave it plenty of flavor without turn...
