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.

The aroma is full of chestnuts and orchids, once brewed it retains its original aroma but brings in more roasted quality.

The flavor is mild and more green than I usually prefer my Tie Guan Yin, but it is still delicious.

Aug. 31st, 2013

The aroma of the dry leaves is extremely fruity with a distinct smokiness and wood smell (oak or hickory). The slightly sweet medium bodied tea liquor however, has no noticeable fruity aroma or taste. But, the liquor does maintain the smokey aroma and wood smell, which is present also in the tea's after taste, and it ...

This is a TeaSource tea I have been drinking for awhile now. I like it very much, both due to it's taste and low price. It is about $10 for 4 oz. This is an everyday tea for me when I have the time for all 6 steepings. I brew this tea using 3g of leaves in 6 oz of 190ºF water with a quick rinse and at 3 mins for s...

Ti Kwan Yin, Cubed from TeaSource

Excellent aroma but very disappointing flavor. This is the first steep, and the cube did not open all the way. Will try a second steep and see if there is a difference.

Aug. 17th, 2013

The aroma is very mild and lovely, a mixture of green, roasted, and honeysuckles. It reminds me of the way my kitchen smells after I make my own Hojicha.

The taste is mild for a Ti Kuan Yin and more green than floral. The initial taste is a toasty green with hints of floral, as the taste fades you are left with swe...

Jun. 27th, 2013

When I was a little girl I spent a large portion of summer surrounded by Honeysuckles and sampling their delightful nectar, the aroma is very comforting and nostalgic to me. When I opened the packet of this tea I was immediately inundated with the smell of honeysuckles. Combine the aroma with the vibrant green color of...

Jun. 7th, 2013

An old review that I had planned on posting and that somehow slipped through the cracks.

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...

A very green oolong with a strong and lasting orchid aroma. Among my favorite green oolongs ever sampled.

A few years ago, when I knew considerably less about tea, someone brought a little packet of tea back from China and gave it to my mother as a gift. It was unbranded, marked only with "Guan Yin Wang", and had ...

I will first start off by saying that this tea is well over priced at Teavana. I can buy the same quality Ti Kuan Yin elsewhere for around $4.00-$4.50 per ounce. With that being said, this is one of the best Oolong teas out there. I do find though that you really either love this tea, or you hate it. I love it, my wife...

I was given a sample of this by a friend and I found that it held up quite nicely against other Ti Quan Yins I have tried. I thought the flavor and aroma were both lovely and I would certainly seek this out again.

This is a nice, subtle oolong. The leaves are fairly green and the fermentation flavor is mild. I think new tea drinkers or occasional tea drinkers may have trouble appreciating the subtlety of this tea, but I'm told it blends well for people that like their teas to have stronger flavors. Because of its gentle flavo...

I sampled this in a blind tea tasting, alongside with the 2011 batch of this same tea. The two teas, while recognizably similar in style, were radically different in overall character.

This tea had a sour flavor and overall subdued quality. There was less bitterness and less astringency than the 2012 batch, but le...

Sampled in a blind tea tasting hosted by Evan Draper. Thanks, Evan, for the tea and the brewing!

This was the first tea we sampled, and was among my favorites of the batch.

Aroma was woody, toasty, and floral, in all infusions. First infusion was light and predominately aromatic. Second was more bitter and con...

The aroma was weak as was the flavor. The price is way too high. Overall, the taste of the tea upon first brew tasted as though it had been brewed 5 times beforehand. Not worth it!

I got some of this tea in a trade from a friend, and it was enough that I have been able to experiment with brewing it a bit. I've been enjoying it quite a lot; this tea is versatile and pleasing to drink.

This is a greener oolong, but not among the greenest. I think this might place it in the zone where it is mor...

I unfortunately only had the opportunity to sample this tea once, but I was impressed. This tea lives up to its name! Aroma is strongly floral.

The mouthfeel and overall experience of drinking it is buttery, but not overwhelmingly so (this quality can get a bit overwhelming to me in some oolongs).

I was so impressed by the two green teas from this company that I eagerly bought two 6 ounce boxes of oolong. The oolongs, at around $5 a tin, were both pricier than the green teas, which were about $2 and $3 a tin, respectively.

I was sorely disappointed with this tea. This is a below-average tea, even for this p...

This oolong has a noticeable roasted quality but still a lot of greener character. It comes across as both toasty and fresh, and is very complex.

The cup brews a dark color, and the leaves turn a dark olive-brown upon steeping. The aroma is both woody and herbaceous, and has tones of nut, cocoa, and spice (especia...

This is a very balanced Tie Guan Yin. It is darker than a lot of the modern green Chinese Oolongs, but lighter than some of the traditional dark roast ones. The cup comes out a dark amber or light brown.

The aroma is slightly floral, with a hint of woody tones. Very full-bodied; slightly honey-like upon drinking....

This rating is when it is made as an iced tea, as I personally do not like this tea warm, but I think it makes an incredibly delicious, and refreshing iced tea in the summer.

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...

(2009 Harvest) This is an impressive tea, and the first perfect rating I've ever given here. Life in Teacup provided me with a sample generous enough to experiment a bit with brewing.

This tea is so intensely flavorful and aromatic, that I settled on using a little less than 1 teaspoon of leaf, and brewed four infu...

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.

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...
