Ooooh Darjeeling from Adagio Teas

Style: Darjeeling Oolong – Region: Darjeeling, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 25th, 2012

The scent of the leaves is delicate to me– slightly sweet and earthy, but I didn’t really taste either of these once brewed. Ooooh Darjeeling is unlike any oolong tea I’ve had. It doesn’t have that earthy aroma like most oolong teas I have tried. Instead, it tasted more like a black tea but not as strong and wi...

Zhang Ping Shui Xian, Charcoal Roasted from Life in Teacup

Style: Shui Hsien Oolong – Region: Zhangping, Fujian, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 18th, 2012

The dry leaf of this oolong looked and smelled heavily roasted, and frankly, smelled more than a little boring to me. But when I brewed this cup, I was pleasantly surprised.

The aroma is complex and a bit edgy--there are some fairly strong skunky, herbaceous qualities, tones of celery, and a few floral tones in the...

77 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 11th, 2012

This was a fascinating tea for me to try. It was completely unlike any other oolong I've tried. The loosely-packed leaves separate easily and infuse quicker than I'd expect for their tough texture. After steeping I noticed that the larger leaves are mostly whole, but the smaller leaves and buds are mostly broken. I...

Organic Oolong Tea from Wei-Chuan

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 6th, 2012

Inside this funny shaped box is 15 full leaf tea bags of Tieguanyin. These can easily be used twice, though, so each package should make a good 30 cups.

The tea itself is fairly mild compared to most wulong tea one finds in tea bags, since the leaves are not all chopped up. The overall taste and effect are simple, b...

Mar. 19th, 2012

Broken-leaf, fairly dark.

More bite than a typical bai hao oolong; more black-tea like. Fairly strong roast, some woody tones, only a hint of fruitiness. I like this more than most Chinese oolongs in its price range and of a similarly dark roast, but in the end I'd rather pay a little more for whole-leaf oolong.

This tea is interesting. It has a kind of sweet, malty flavor. It has a kind of smoky aroma. I like it more than other oolong teas I've had, but I don't tend to like them a whole lot. I added cream and sugar.

Served Gong Fu style by Evan. Golden-green dry leaf is pleasingly aromatic.

I liked this tea very much. Predominately floral aroma, yet bold and complex, with skunky (which I liked) and herbaceous undertones. There's a faint soapy quality evident in each infusion, but it did not detract from the overall experienc...

Mar. 6th, 2012

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...

I really like pouchong / bao zhong tea, which is an extremely green oolong, sometimes described as a green tea. A while back, I had requested that Upton Tea Imports add a lower-priced Pouchong to their catalogue, and I was pleased to see that they added this tea. Upon trying it, I am really impressed: it is one of th...

After being impressed by a number of teas from Imperial Tea Garden, this one disappointed me a lot. I've experimented a lot with brewing, and it just seems flat and bland.

The leaf is mostly broken and the dry leaf has a dusty, twiggy aroma. I experimented brewing in several ways. This tea holds up to making at l...

This is not the sort of tea I tend to like, but I loved this one, which I think is a testimony to its quality. I tend to like stronger-tasting teas with more bitterness. But I enjoyed this tea greatly.

Visually, the loose-leaf of this tea looks more like a Bai Hao or Oriental Beauty oolong than other Chinese oolon...

Great tea for the bagged variety style,I usually drink high quality loose leaf at $15-25 per ounce, but Wei-Chuan is my next choice for an excellent full bodied smooth as silk tea. Also the price cannot be beat!! Thank you and keep up the great quality. Larry Michaels of the great lakes region, Ohio.

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...

I don't know how to describe this tea. It tastes a little bit fruity, kind of peach-like maybe. It has a sort of smoky aroma. I don't think it's quite my cup of tea. It's a little too weird.

This tea isn't as bad as I thought it would be, from the way the leaf smelled. It's mild, and not too vegetable-like. I added cream and sugar.

I'm normally not a fan of this style of tea, but this one was my favorite yet, probably because it was atypical. Like many of Rishi's teas, this one ventured out into a bit edgier, bolder territory of flavor and aroma that I found to be more interesting and enjoyable.

Brews a darker-than-normal color. Aroma is sim...

Oct. 28th, 2011

Not my favourite Oolong brand, but it's always fresh and has a buttery flavour which is very appealing to me. The problem is that if you over-steep it, it tastes like a mouthful of dirty grass mingled with an odour of cat pee.

This is the same tea that can be purchased in large boxes in some Asian markets. It is not the same as the loose-leaf teas sold in Ten-Ren's stores. After being impressed with Ten Ren's 3rd grade pouchong, this one, which is about the same price, was sorely disappointing.

Dry leaf, which is mostly larger pieces of...

Dry leaf has an intense aroma of cocoa. Upon brewing the tea, the aroma becomes much more complex.

I brewed this tea western style and was surprised at how many infusions it lasted through. It is rare for me to find teas that can hold up to three long infusions, using less leaf. This tea lasted through four.

I have been curious about this tea for awhile, as I have not seen Wuyi wulong teas available in tea bag form before. I was curious to see what the basic character of this tea is, as there are several major types of such teas from the Wuyi region. I expected it to either be of a Shuixian or Dahongpao type.

Sep. 16th, 2011

Although this tea looks very dark in color, it had a slightly greener character among Wuyi oolongs. Aroma has a hint of smokiness, and some woody qualities, but primarily a background of honey-like smoothness that is fairly floral. The finish is clean and herbaceous, leaving a fresh taste of celery on the palate.

Sep. 14th, 2011

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....
