The aroma of the dry and very green leaves is one of those 'just right' combination of notes, it is floral but not too heady, has notes of fresh vegetation without smelling too green, and notes of chestnut without being too nutty. The Goldilocks of smells. It reminds me of morning dew on an orchid, along with the summe...Read Full Review

Dry leaves look as if green tea, however, the brew is light brown, slightly lighter color than Auspicious Ayame (a discontinued by Teavana oolong, my benchmark for Oolongs for now), good floral taste when cooled, but not as complex as Auspicious Ayame’s. Read Full Review

An old review that I had planned on posting and that somehow slipped through the cracks.Read Full Review
The dry leaf of this tea was not very aromatic, which was a first for me among teas from this company, which normally are intensely fragrant, immediately when opening them. The tightly-rolled, dark colored leaves had only a fai...

First impression of this tea is that the aroma is pleasantly full and rich, very nice for a dark wulong. The liquid is dark golden brown, but it is not thick, opaque, or hazy, as some wulong teas from a tea bag can be. The taste of this tea is characteristic of a dark Tieguanyin, with a bit of a bitter aftertaste which...Read Full Review

Wow. This tea surprised me from the first sip, both with its quality and originality. This is not a run-of-the-mill Tie Guan Yin.Read Full Review
Aroma highly complex, with both floral and herbaceous tones present from the start. There's a honey-like quality and a slight but noticeable roast. Finish is woody, but in a gentle so...

Dark, slightly smoky aroma with a somewhat dusty and ultimately pretty mild taste. Taste isn't fabulously exciting but it's solid, especially for the value that Ten Ren's customers love! It's a pity I'm too lazy to brew loose tea, I kind of hate having all of these plastic teabag wrappers around. Anyway, it's a-ok.Read Full Review

Wow. Rishi gets my attention again with another tea that is recognizable as its style but with its own unique twist. The aroma is astonishingly complex...in addition to the toasty, woody, and fruity tones you might expect from a medium-roasted Tie Guan Yin, there is a strong suggestion of spice (nutmeg, mace, and cin...Read Full Review

Very rich and full-bodied, and more bitter than Ten Ren's Tung Ting and Ten Wu oolongs, but still not very bitter. Pleasant aroma, both earthy and fresh...cleaner tasting than other dark oolongs I've had in teabags. I tend to prefer lighter Ti Kuan Yin teas...but I enjoy this one a lot, especially given that it is in...Read Full Review
