Misty Rock from Simply Good Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 5th, 2015

A classic Wuyi oolong of high quality, with whole, intact leaves and a complex aroma. The dry leaf has a pleasant roasty smell, with a honey-like floral note. I find the dry leaf very pleasing to smell.

Brews up a rather clear and light cup with a light flavor. The aroma is both roasty and floral with nutty notes...

Dec. 20th, 2014



Oh, yum. So first of all, the scent of the dry tea is ridiculously sweet and creamy. It smells like some sort of candy, and makes me seriously question the notion that there are no flavourings involved in this tea. The leaves are very tightly rolled little balls. I used a generous teaspoon for 8oz of water, and tha...

Dec. 19th, 2014

Wow. This tea is pretty exceptional...buttery smooth, but incredibly rich. The dominant notes are of dried fruit, like fig, date, or raisin. It does have a brandy-like quality. It lives up to the claim of "tremendously complex flavors" although I think it's the aroma that is most complex.

Flavor is bold, slightl...

Dec. 14th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is really quite sweet, like sesame candies with honey (ever had those things, they are delicious!) along with a touch of honeysuckle nectar and sweet cream, the cream notes border on buttery. Ok, so this just might be a Southern thing, but it reminds me a little of that super creamy honey butter f...

Dec. 8th, 2014

The aroma of the dry and very green leaves is one of those 'just right' combination of notes, it is floral but not too heady, has notes of fresh vegetation without smelling too green, and notes of chestnut without being too nutty. The Goldilocks of smells. It reminds me of morning dew on an orchid, along with the summe...

Dec. 3rd, 2014

First off I can say that the dry leaves have a very rich aroma, a blend of char and sweet fruit, it reminds me of peaches and plums cooked over a grill and allowed to get that really yummy char and caramelized sugar aroma. There is also a distant aroma of orchids and a touch of tobacco, the finish has a slightly yeast...

The aroma, well, often I find myself going ga-ga over the roasted oolongs, but wow, when I have a dance with a Gao Shan I wonder, why did I ever get seduced by roasted tea? It is so sweet and so very floral, like a bouquet of honeysuckles, hyacinth, orchids, and lilies, it is intensely floral and at the same time very ...

This tea was really good, reminiscent of tea served at my favorite Chinese restaurant growing up.

Full yet mild flavor, with both steepings being rich. The leaf could have yielded more cups if had the time. The dried leaves smell like raisins!

Nov. 22nd, 2014

Sampled in Velvet Sky in Jenkintown. Bao Zhong, or Pouchong, has been one of my favorite types of tea since I tried it, but I'm occasionally disappointed by it, and this is the fourth-worst example of it that I've tried. That may sound specific, it wasn't all that bad, but it was not close to my favorite example of t...

Nov. 19th, 2014

the aroma of the dried leaves is certainly a Yancha, I notice the tobacco and char notes that are so familiar, but they are much milder and joined by dried cherry and flowers, specifically hyacinths. Many rock oolongs are sweet, this one takes it too a whole new level, much like combining a Dan Cong and a Yancha for ul...

The aroma is richly roasted, as expected, with notes of char, roasted chestnuts, walnuts, pecans...this is a nutty tea! Finish that off with a distant orchid aroma and you have a very intense aroma, I do suggest sitting down if sniffing this tea.

That is a smooth start, smooth and rich, it begins with chestnuts and ...

Well perhaps on the website this may be considered a mid-grade tea, but I was really impressed by it. I now know what a quality oolong is supposed to taste and smell like. It's rich both in aroma and flavor, and lasts very well through multiple infusions. Infact, I experimented on the third and fourth infusions: It was...

Mmm, very tasty. This tea beats other oolongs I've had that were three times the price. It's naturally really sweet, with a mellow nutty undertone. Creamy mouth-feel. The aroma is beautiful, thick and sweet. I could drink this tea all day.

Brewed a large teaspoon in 8oz water at 200F for 3 min.

Well this is my first ever Da Hong Pao, and I'm really excited to review it (but not as much as I was to taste it)!

I brewed about 1.5 spoons (because the leaves are long) in about 9 oz of water at 200 F for 4 min.

The color of the tea is beautiful reddish amber (Alex, I think a good feature would be uploading pi...

Nov. 10th, 2014

The aroma is gently floral, like you expect from a 'greener' oolong, but much more delicate. There are notes of lily, lilac, and honeysuckle, it reminds me of spring rather than a heady orchid filled conservatory.

Ah, ok, that tea is exactly what I needed! It is light and sweet with a very clean floral quality, it t...

I wrote this review last year, and somehow forgot to post it!

I tried this tea at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival, and enjoyed it. I also took a sample, which I've since brewed a number of times.

Dry leaf smells a lot like a lightly-roasted traditional oolong, smelling pretty woody. Upon brewing, has a...

This tea was amazing! I loved how vegetable-y it smelled and tasted, and how velvety it was going down. Mmmm. This has to be one of the best oolongs I've had in a while. It was a little sweet, but not overwhelming so. I'm very impressed!

Muscatel and plum scent, and the plum comes out with absolute loveliness in the liquor—sweet, and just slightly astringent. Additional sips bring out a blossoming plum and grape richness, that quickly gives way to a cooling tart astringency. Every sip is filled with juicy-ripe fruit. A beautiful tea, and easily an eq...

It should be noted right off the bat that I am not a connoisseur of oolong. I enjoy it, but there's not a lot of sophistication in my tea-drinking; I don't know a lot about different regional varieties, different methods of preparation, and so on.

Which perhaps makes this variety somewhat fitting for me. I bought it...

I loved this tea, and it was also very reasonable in price.

Dry leaf has an incredibly pleasant nutty and toasty aroma, much more toasty than any other pouchong or bao zhong tea. There's also a hint of honey and flowers.

The brewed cup has a beautiful balance of floral and nutty, toasty tones. There's a mild, h...

This tea was great! I got three brews out of it, all well flavored. The third was quite possibly the best. The second brew was a little too light for me,which could have been because I steeped it for a shorter time with cooler water. I loved the vegetable tones and how smooth it was!

The aroma of the dry leaves is delightfully rich, a blend of tobacco, bamboo coal, wood, earthiness, and a delightfully sweet sesame butter and honey finish. You can tell this tea was created by those who are very proficient in their art because it has the charcoal notes you expect, but they are mellow and it is not a ...

The aroma of these fluffy and silvery leaves is summed up as light, with notes of orange blossoms, cane sugar, a touch of undefined flowers, and a tiny hint of herbaceous green. It is like a blend of white tea, oolong, and delicate green tea, when I say that it is light, the aroma itself is very defined and has a prese...

A lovely, smooth oolong. I brought the water to 185 °F and steeped it for a few minutes. It has a hint of herbaceousness, almost floweriness, and overall tastes like a very solid, everyday tea. I wonder how it would do if left to steep longer, as I like my teas strong. I experienced no bitterness or anything unpleasan...
