This tea has a kind of salty flavor. It's pretty good. I added cream and sugar.

Fengqing Paddy Flavor Raw Pu-erh Cake Tea 2006 from TeaVivre

Style: Raw (Sheng) Pu-erh – Region: Fengqing, Yunnan, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 16th, 2013

I found this tea to be a very enjoyable Pu-erh, typical for its age and unusual only in the degree to which it produced a tingling and numbing sensation on the palate.

I received a sample which was a mostly-whole piece broken off a Pu-erh cake. The leaves were largely intact and it was very easy to break apart with...

Yun Nan Gold from Two Hills Tea

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 8th, 2013

Purchased at the Newark Natural Foods coop in Newark, Delaware. I suspect that this may not have been very fresh.

Aroma is peppery and slightly fruity. Smooth flavor, but mild. Flavor slightly sour. Overall character a lot more like shu (ripened) Pu-erh than like other Yunnan gold teas I've sampled. Upon drinki...

Mar. 31st, 2013

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.

I'm not hugely experienced with Yunnan green teas, but I tend to find them very interesting, and this one was no exception. This tea really amazed me with its ability to deliver infusion after infusion...the leaves seem to hold so much flavor!

Dry leaf is a mix of dark golden green and pale whitish leaves, and has ...

Classic yunnan smell, rich, earthy. Liquor is a pleasant honey color. Smooth with a subtle smoky after taste.

Feb. 14th, 2013

I don't have a lot of experience with higher-end Pu Erh tea, so I don't have much to compare this to. In the past I've drank (and rather liked) the cheap stuff you find in Chinatown, the kind that smells fishy and tastes of dirt.

This tea was an altogether different experience for me. I didn't have much of it, so I ...

Dec. 21st, 2012

I only had one bag of this, so I brewed it according to the instructions - straight off the boil and let steep for four minutes. Neither the leaves or the brewed tea had a very strong aroma. I'm not sure what to compare it to: it was something dark and faintly bitter smelling, but not like coffee or chocolate. More lik...

China Yunnan from Mark T. Wendell

Style: Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 20th, 2012

This is a very flavorful black tea from Yunnan China. It is complex and almost peppery, but not in the spicy sense. It is not as sweet as other examples I have tried, but this is not a defect merely a difference. Highly recommend.

Dec. 19th, 2012

A nice, sweet, dark Yunnan. This is not at all astringent. To add milk or sugar would be silly. If you drink a lot of black tea, this can be an enjoyable break from the more brisk, south Asian tea styles.

Dec. 5th, 2012

This tea was surprising, and delicious.

The biggest surprise was unusual aroma, and the disconnect between that aroma and the taste. I should say: for me, the smell of tea is a thing to savor, as much a part of the experience as drinking it. Unless you buy something after drinking a sample, the smell is probably yo...

Dec. 2nd, 2012

The aroma is very light and floral and the taste matches! I find the taste to be a mix of floral and citrus with a very mild tea flavor. Very subtle and enjoyable!

I only got a sample if this tea but definitely plan on getting more from Agagio as it might be my favorite of their teas

Nov. 29th, 2012

This tea is completely unlike anything else I've tried. It has a lot going on in the aroma, and almost defies description.

I notice a smoky quality, almost like a hint of that campfire smoke of Lapsang souchong, paired with a hint of camphor, like in raw Pu-erh. But upon drinking, it is more floral and honey-like,...

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 25th, 2012

Pu-erh has a very distinct aroma, and some may find it off-putting, but I love it. The aroma reminds me of a rich,earthy, smell, almost similar to a pile of autumn leaves. As to be expected from a fermented tea...it smells like it has been fermented! I find this Pu-erh really brings out the earthy aroma that a lot of b...

The first time I brewed this tea, it had a dry aroma, but I liked it. Although it was a bit bitter, it was strong and full-bodied. The second infusion had a more flavorful and interesting aroma, and was less bitter, but still strong. I liked it better. I added cream and sugar.

Sep. 7th, 2012

I liked this tea a lot. It had a subtle flavor and was really smooth. I thought the tea smelled a little like cooked greens, which I like, so I had no problem with that. I probably wouldn't pay the price, but I can see why others would, it's a high quality tea.

This tea is interesting. It has a strong aroma of molasses, which is a little weird. The flavor is pretty good. It's strong and deep. I added cream and sugar. It's kind of hard to brew with my small infuser because the balls expand so much.

I don't think this is my kind of tea. It's a little weird, but all right. I'm not sure how to describe it. It doesn't have a very strong flavor, and I tend to like strong tea with bold flavors. I added cream and sugar. It's not worth the price to me. It also generates a lot of foam in the leaves while brewing, and ther...

In spite of having tried quite a few Yunnan teas by now, this was something completely different for me! Very interesting, although a little bit difficult to brew to satisfaction. The dry leaf, rolled into dense spheres, has only a mild aroma, more suggestive of Keemun than other Yunnan teas.

I first used a small ...

Aug. 9th, 2012

The dry leaf of this looks unusually wiry and tippy for a ripe Pu-erh, with a lot of golden tips. It is quite aromatic, and the aroma is typical for ripe Pu-erh, with perhaps only a faint suggestion of more complexity.

Upon brewing, 1 teaspoon of leaf and 1 minute as recommeded for one cup, this produces a dark col...

Dry leaf, consisting almost exclusively of unbroken golden tips, is extremely aromatic and fresh, with the characteristic quality that all black teas from Yunnan province seem to have, but fruitier than normal.

Upon brewing, the leaf turns darker in color and produces a rich brown cup.

Like other Yunnan Dian Hong...

I drink Menghai V93 often, even though it is not the 'best' tea out there, it is still a really reliable ripe puer tea. It is really nice after a heavy meal!!

Jul. 3rd, 2012

This tea is ripened (Shu) Pu-erh, which I tend to be less a fan of than raw (sheng) Pu-erh. The dry leaf, when compressed, is very tightly packed, and relatively unaromatic. Upon steeping, it becomes evident that the leaf of this tea is finely broken. The leaf is slow to infuse while still compressed but once the ca...

Apr. 8th, 2012

Complex and smooth, a bit on the weaker side though. Dry leaf has a strong aroma, characteristic of Yunnan red teas.

Aroma is complex. Moderately smoky, resembling tobacco smoke and smoky green teas (like gunpowder) more than most smoky black teas, also moderately fruity, almost like a Keemun. Flavor unusually sm...
