House Blend Oolong from Jasmine Pearl Tea Company

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Nantou, Taiwan

86 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 7th, 2018

This is a blend of Gui Fei and Jade oolongs, since the website doesn't make that clear. It has a very floral aroma, as expected. The first cup is clean with a honey-like sweetness, but it's more aromatic than flavorful. The second cup is more interesting: mild stone fruit notes appear, and the mouthfeel is thicker comp...

Nepal Guranse Estate Organic Oolong Tea from Simpson & Vail

84 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 3rd, 2018

A good tea that resembled Darjeeling first flush teas and probably would have convinced me it was a "black" tea if it had not been labeled as an oolong. It's more like a Himalayan black tea that had something different or unusual about it. Not what I expected; it was nothing like Chinese oolongs, nor like Darjeeling oo...

Apr. 17th, 2018

1st steep - 212F and approximately 4 min : 1.5 t or 1 heaping teaspoon : 12oz water

I was a bit concerned at first because the box aroma has a strong syrupy cherry amaretto smell to it. But once brewed, this tea has a mellow but present good black tea smell, and maybe a little nutty towards the end. There was no tra...

Mar. 23rd, 2018

I'll confess I tried this tea after being intrigued at reading the legend of the Big Red Robe. Glad I did. I wonder if a monkey really picked this?

This is my new favorite tea. It has more body and flavor than the more delicate oolong teas. I usually give it a bit more tea and a longer steep than the usual recommen...

This tea was good, but it just didn't wow me the way I would need a tea in this price range to do in order to want to buy it.

The dry leaf smells exquisite, multifaceted, and hard to describe. Although the color is dark, the smell resembles green teas in some ways. Softly toasty and bready, hinting at floral and s...

An overall, 'meh' tea. Was not milky or creamy at all, but that was expected. Had a cabbage taste which was the main thing I disliked about this tea. I would recommend this tea if you a fine with a strong vegetal taste.

Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) Wuyi Rock Oolong Tea Fujian from TeaVivre

92 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 12th, 2018

A truly great tea!
I brew this with one teaspoon of tea per cup(about 1.5 grams I think) And I get 3 steepings. The aroma is nice but indescribable, and the taste is almost the same way. It has nutty notes and is very... "minerally". A pretty good value at $17 per 100g but definitely not cheap either.

Jan. 31st, 2018

Probably my favorite oolong, and one of my favorite teas — which is saying something, because I don’t care for most oolongs. I’ve been drinking it for years. I usually brew it to sort of a medium strength, using about 190-degree water (or in a pinch, whatever temperature of water comes out of the industrial cof...

This is my absolute favorite go-to green oolong tea. The aroma is pleasant and not very strong. But the aroma is the least of my worries when buying tea. The flavor is amazing, and I have trouble describing it. It lasts me 4 western style infusions and is an amazing value at 2.5 cents per cup when buying in pounds(or 1...

Dec. 31st, 2017

The can calls this "green tea", but it's clearly a jade oolong. It's much better quality than Starway's other oolong teas. It's mediocre compared to other Taiwanese high mountain oolongs, but they're usually much more expensive than this.

The dry tea smells fresh, mellow and pleasant. There's no hint of a roast. The...

Dec. 20th, 2017

A fascinating and really enjoyable tea that was unlike any oolong I have ever tried before, but still shared some of my favorite qualities of oolongs. This tea had a soft and gentle quality, like the edge had been taken off relative to the green or black Assam teas I have been sampling recently.

I had no idea what ...

My friend gave me some of this tea to try.

I'm not good at tasting the difference between different greenish oolongs. Jade oolong, four seasons, Tie Guanyin, they often taste almost the same to me. It was the same with this one at the first steeping.

The second cup tasted different, though, like jade oolong but g...

Nov. 15th, 2017

Out of all the teas on this planet, oolong, in all its varieties, is my favorite. I received this particular type as part of the monthly deal from this company in a loose leaf form.

This oolong had a nice earthy smell that was slightly stronger compared to other oolongs I have had. Its flavor was smooth all the way ...

I'm still struggling with tightly-rolled green oolongs, but when I do get this one right, it tastes amazing. It's extremely smooth and slightly sweetish. It has just a hint of something that reminds me of green tea. It's silky soft and a bit sweet when I get it right, but sour if I do it wrong (for example, if I use to...

Oct. 11th, 2017

Iron Goddess is the first Oolong tea I've had. It has this nice earthy/herbal, flowery flavor, almost a natural sweetness to it's taste. You can clearly imagine the taste by it's smell, which is very much the same. Caina says you want to steep 1tsp for about 30 seconds, with resteeping of the leaves about 5 times. This...

I just find oolongs really difficult. I have three tightly rolled oolongs, including this one, and they taste almost identical to me. I feel like I'm giving ratings almost at random sometimes.

I know I used a very large amount of leaves this time. It has a soapy flavour (not in an unpleasant way) like jade oolongs, ...

This tea is a lie. It's mediocre oolong that's been sprayed with caramel apple flavoring. Republic of Tea isn't always the highest quality, but I at least expected them to be honest. The can gives no indication that it's flavored and the website positively claims that it isn't. At first I doubted my own senses, but I w...

I drank this in Het Gouden Randje's tearoom.

It smelled sweet and creamy, and almost like custard. Definitely like vanilla. I was amazed with how the clear liquor tasted and felt milky. It's soft and sweetish.
It actually reminds me of a cheap artificial-vanilla-flavoured bagged tea that I used to drink years ago, ...

Picked this up at an Asian market the other day and it's now my office tea. Very flavorful. No sweetness and just a mild bitterness. Quite smooth, not as "bright" as the assam I had at breakfast.

I followed the directions on the package and used boiling water and steeped 4 minutes.

Aug. 2nd, 2017

This tea could almost be summarised in a single word: Nutty. It has an intensely nutty aroma and flavour. It also reminds me of dry autumn leaves (not that I've tasted many of those, but I can't shake the association). I'm not a fan of nutty teas, so I don't really enjoy this one.

This is the first tea I tried with ...

Jul. 23rd, 2017

A lifelong fan of traditional black Darjeelings, I was intrigued by the idea of a Darjeeling oolong. Directions called for steeping 2 heaping teaspoons per cup, 212F/100C, 3-4 minutes. I went with 4 level teaspoons (3 grams) per 8 fluid ounces, 212F/100C, 4 minutes. I liked the fruity-floral flavor and expect that fans...

The oversized teabags are individually sealed in mylar and smell fresh when opened. The dry tea leaves are a little more broken than I would expect from high-quality tea. The dominant aroma is of the roast and is nice, but generic.

The roast is also the dominant flavor as is normal for darker oolongs, but I am pleas...

I wanted to try this tea because De Theefabriek's other Vietnamese teas have been absolutely amazing.

The dry tea doesn't have a very strong aroma, but it's very sweet and almost reminds of some candy mix.
Both the aroma and the flavour of the tea remind me of Het Gouden Randje's Formosa Jade Oolong. I'm still stru...

I drank this tea in the Unami Maison de Thé in Lille. It was served prepared in a small teapot. This means it was made exactly as it should, though I didn't get to see any leaves.

This was my first time trying a Tie Guan Yin, so I chose the one that best fit my budget.
The liqueur is yellow. It has a nutty and woo...
