Dark brown liquor. Mild flavor and aroma. A bit "anemic" for my taste. I never use milk or sugar, I think this tea would be overwhelmed by either.

Strong bourbon aroma. I was curious, and wanted to try a flavored tea. I like vanilla, I was expecting something different. Not impressed.

Feb. 2nd, 2014

My tea tastes are rather narrow. I rarely stray from Assam or Yunnan loose leaf. Trying this reminds me why I enjoy these types the best. Lovely "peppery" smell, beautiful liquor, and most important, excellent taste. Upton, in my opinion, never fails to deliver an excellent tea at a great price.

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 5th, 2013

This is my first try of Pu-Erh. It's very strong. The aroma is similar to damp soil. The liquor is very dark. I think this tea is strong enough for milk or cream and sugar. I will be careful in my next selection of a Pu-Erh. If you enjoy a really bold cup of tea, this might be what you are looking for.

Monkey Picked Oolong Tea from Teavana

Style: Tie Guan Yin – Region: ?????

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 3rd, 2013

I'll start with that this tea was a gift. I usually drink an Assam or Yunnan. I don't have much experience with Oolongs. Pale amber/yellow color. The green part of the mix certainly moderates the flavor. Subtle and smooth. This should be a great choice for an Oolong fan.

This is my usual choice on work days mornings. I go to Starbucks, quick and easy. It has good flavor and will help open your eyes on an early morning.
Full leaf, so it has decent taste. Convenient.

The aroma is "earthy". The leaves are rolled into small balls, thus the snail name. Liquor has rich color. Excellent clean clear flavor. I'm impressed with this tea. Certainly it has made it to my top 3. I will purchase this tea again and again.

Nice deep reddish brown liquor. I'd say a wonderful every day Assam. The price is right. The loose tea has a great aroma and inviting appearance. For the price you can't go wrong. It would be fantastic for anyone making their special blends.

Mild pungent aroma. Smooth flavor.
Certainly an "all day" tea choice.
Excellent price.
When I first spotted this tea, I was leery.
My other encounters with African grown teas have been disappointing. This one is the best so far.
