Yunnan Imperial Black from Single Origin Teas

Style: Black Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 18th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is wonderfully sublime, woodsy, muscatel, and oaky like a wine cask. The brewed tea brings more earthiness and wood notes, the liquid is very sweet and makes my nose tingle.

The taste is wonderful! One of the smoothest black teas I have ever had. Sweet, earthy, and oaky. A wonderful tea.

Wild Snow Sprout Tea from Wild Tea Qi

Style: Green Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 11th, 2013

When I first opened the package I thought, is this a fermented tea? It had the rich earthy aroma of a Pu Erh and the smokiness of a mild Lapsang Souchong with just a hint of that 'Asian Market' smell that you get with Pu Erhs. It is delightful and unfamiliar, certainly a new aroma from a green tea.

Once the leaves ...

Sticky Rice Pu-erh Tuocha from Chicago Tea Garden

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

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
May. 30th, 2013

This might be the most peculiar tea I have ever tasted. I received it with a mixture of flavored Sheng and Shu Pu Erh Tuochas and had to try it first because I love sticky rice as a food. The aroma is mostly sweet sticky rice with a slightly fishy undertone from the Pu Erh. The taste is so unusual!!! You can taste the ...

Pu Erh Dante from Adagio Teas

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 30th, 2013

I really wish I could rate this tea as good or great, but sadly I cannot. The aroma is one of earthiness and woodiness, it reminded me of an old wood trunk or even a humidor. The taste was not overwhelming, but it did taste very strongly of earthiness and leather, much as the description says, but after the drinking it...

Yunnan Gold (Golden Yunnan) from Adagio Teas

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5

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

Emperor's Puerh - Black Tea from Numi Organic Tea

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

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...
