Similar to Red Peony - I just had an Invoice from Gopaldhara and Rohini Tea estates and I had an opportunity to taste the hand made Peony Rosette. Indeed very special mystical and mesmerizing mouth lingering taste as we go along from first cup to second cup. This is one of my favorite tea, The tea is medium bodied and ...

Hao Ya A from Harney and Sons

Style: Keemun Hao Ya A – Region: Anhui, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 12th, 2011

This tea has a nice, dark color and a crisp, smoky aroma. The flavor is not bitter, not too dry and not very smoky at all, as I thought it would be from the aroma and my experience with other Keemun teas. It is even less smoky than its nearly as delicious sibling, Hao Ya “B”. It has a very clean, crisp, fresh tast...

Aug. 29th, 2011

I can't believe the price on this tea: 6 ounces for $3. I wasn't expecting much, and I was literally blown away. This is an outstanding tea for this price. Many whole leaves, and mostly large, only slightly broken pieces. The leaf is lightly packed and takes up a lot of space. The instructions say to brew with 2-3...

Aug. 9th, 2011

Aroma is predominantly grassy, more grassy than any other green tea--drinking it conjures up images of being out in my yard, digging around in the grass. There are some interesting floral tones. Flavor is rather muted; most teas with similar aromas are a bit more sour, astringent, and brisk, but this tea mainly leave...

Mar. 3rd, 2011

Another sample from Life in Teacup, this is my kind of tea: a classic Chinese pan-fired green tea wild a bold flavor. This tea looks typical at first, but as I started experimenting with brewing it, I found it had a lot of personality.

After a few trials, I found that I achieved the best results for my tastes by us...

Pouring the tea into the cup, the color is a medium brown color. It smells sour with a complex flowery undertone. The taste is mildly sour but incredibly sweet. There are hints of a rose taste with overtone of a flower that I can not identify.

Keemun (Qimen) Black Tea Grade II from Life in Teacup

Style: Keemun – Region: Anhui, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 23rd, 2010

In spite of this not being the top grade, it is a wonderful tea, a bit - very tiny bit - smokey, but winey and deep, with some roasted overtones. Very satisfying.

2010 Spring Handmade Premium Liu An Gua Pian from JK Tea Shop

Style: Lu An Melon Seed – Region: Anhui, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 16th, 2010

This is a good tea, but it is picky about its parameters. One really has to watch this tea while it is brewing. The flavor is good even on latter infusions though, and endurance for a green tea is a good thing! Definitely be carful with this one though to get the desired flavor profile and strength.

Aug. 16th, 2010

This is a quality green tea! The leaves are made with just two leaves, no bud, and so the bitterness is kept to a minimum. The tea can be as light or as heavy as one would want it depending on brewing style, and either way it is delicious. The flavor could be a bit stronger (for my tastes) but I think lovers of good gr...

Aug. 16th, 2010

This is a great tea! Very affordable, and the quality is legitimate! It is a good tea for someone looking for a lighter green tea that is easy on the palate and relatively forgiving. I would drink this green tea everyday if I had it in bulk. Arbor Teas is a respectable company as well; devoted to the sustainability of ...

Aug. 16th, 2010

This is a great Dragonwell for its price.
I think that it is a good representation of a quality green tea at an affordable cost. Is this the best dragonwell out there? No. But is it a good everyday tea to enjoy? Definitely. The good part about it is that a purchase is in support of a sustainable company that is dedica...

Mar. 23rd, 2010

This is the first yellow tea I've sampled and in many respects it resembles a green tea.

The aroma is fairly rich; there are some of the grassy tones that characterize many green teas, but these are weak and in the background. A bit peppery like Upton describes, and also a bit perfumey. Subtle, but with a lot of d...

Dragon Well (Anhui) from Rishi Tea

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 23rd, 2009

I loved this tea although I'm not usually crazy about green. It avoided the planty, health-food associations I usually make with green teas. Instead, there was a lovely, rather robust fragrance, almost floral. This is probably the one green that I will stock in my tea cupboard.

Dec. 17th, 2009

This was a very gentle green tea. Delicate aroma with a hint of toastiness; less grassiness than other dragonwells I've tried. This particular tea is extremely smooth and low in both bitterness and astringency even when I brewed it with water hotter than recommended...I also found it can be brewed much longer than Ri...
