Wuyi Organic Oolong Tea from Wegmans

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

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 9th, 2011

This is the same style as Rishi's Wuyi Qi Lan, and the two teas are very similar. I suspect that this is also a Qi Lan but I am not experienced enough with Wuyi teas to say for sure.

Rishi's Qi Lan (Wuyi oolong) is sweeter, thicker, more syrupy. This tea is more dry. Both teas have a pleasant hint of smokiness. ...

Jul. 24th, 2011

I am really fond of this tea. I purchased a small bag of this from Rishi a few months back, and have grown to really appreciate the full body with it's roasty/nutty/grainy flavors and aroma. It has sweet notes as they describe it, especially when you steep it a second or third time.

I tend to brew this Chinese styl...

Style: Se Chung Oolong – Region: Anxi, Fujian, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 18th, 2011

Greener character, with an aroma that is simultaneously smoky, woody, and floral. Flavor surprisingly clear and clean. However, aftertaste is muddled and slightly more smoky than I like. Medium-bodied. I find it less fruity than the description suggests, and less than a number of other oolongs.

When Se Chung ool...

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.

83 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 28th, 2011

This is a green wulong tea from Taiwan, in tea bag form from Ten Ren. This is a complex tea, but its vegetal and floral characteristics stand out the most to me. There is also some slight sweetness, and the overall character is quite rich and smooth. I have some loose leaf King of Tieguanyin, another green wulong, that...

Oolong Tea from Ten Ren Tea

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
May. 29th, 2011

I was in a different city today, so I hit up the local Asian grocery stores to find some Ten Ren and Foojoy teas to try out.

This tea is mysteriously / generically labeled simply as "Oolong Tea." The tea brews to a nice golden amber color, a bit lighter than the Ten Ren Tieguanyin, basically a dark wulong. The aroma...

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Fujian, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
May. 21st, 2011

The Chinese name printed on the packaging for China Classic Oolong sheds some light on this tea. It reads as Fuzi Zhongguo Minnan Wulong Cha, or "Foojoy Chinese Minnan Wulong Tea." Here, Minnan refers to the southern region of Fujian province. Therefore, a more accurate English name for this tea, following the Chinese,...

Chinese Oolong from Bigelow Tea

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 3/5
May. 16th, 2011

The aroma of this tea is sweet, full, and strong. The tea brews to a dark amber brown, and is quite opaque for this type of tea. The tea itself is quite full-bodied and warming, which is a nice quality. The initial taste of the tea is full and rich, but halfway through a sip, the flavor becomes flat, boring, and lifele...

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
May. 16th, 2011

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...

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 6th, 2011

(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...

Jade Oolong Tea from Wegmans

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 5th, 2011

A solidly good, classic, but perhaps slightly boring Taiwanese Jade Oolong. Sold for a surprisingly reasonable price!

Aroma is mostly of butter with a little honey and some faint floral tones. Buttery-smooth flavor: sweet, with no bitterness. To my tastes, a bit too buttery, and not very tea-like.

Leaves are e...

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 28th, 2011

To me this dry tea smelled like one of my favorite aromas - mac and cheese. The first infusion was a combination of a floral, with raisins and caramel, with a tiny hint of smoke. The second was more floral and sweeter, with more raisin in it.. As it cooled, it developed a certain fruitiness that reminded me of peache...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 15th, 2011

I often find Dan Congs to be fascinatingly complex teas, and this one is no exception. This tea I also found a bit easier to work with, in that it was easy for me to bring out the qualities that I enjoy most. It was a little more like a Wuyi oolong in overall character than other dancong I've tried. The dry leaf is ...

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 7th, 2011

The scent of the dry leaves is of good green earth. They are very compressed. As they brew a green vegetal scent arises with a sharp, pleasant aroma of pineapple. The medium amber liquor tastes about the same, vegetal, pineapple, with a whiff of floral. The second infusion sadly loses the pineapple, as the floral o...

Jan. 20th, 2011

This is a very smooth, classic pouchong of considerably above-average quality. Aroma is fairly strong, mostly floral and honey-like. Remarkable for a pouchong of this price, there is a complete absence of unpleasant fishy tones, and there's very little astringency.

I found that a teaspoon of leaves could brew two ...

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...

Out of the package the tea has a lovely light floral scent. Not very strong, but immensely pleasing. I steeped the tea with freshly boiled (but not boiling) water. This resulted in a beautiful bright yellow/green liquid that had a light sweet smell. The taste is best described as light, yet full of flavor at the sam...

Jan. 2nd, 2011

This is the first medium-roast Dong Ding I've tried; prior to trying this one I've only tried the lighter roasted styles of Dong Ding, or medium-roasted oolongs of other styles. I like this one very much.

I did not have much leaf and only had one opportunity to brew this once, using multiple infusions, but the resu...

Dec. 20th, 2010

This is an exceptionally strong tea: without a doubt, the strongest green oolong I have yet tried. Very little leaf is needed. While I've had Dong Ding with a more nuanced aroma, it was weaker overall, and I actually prefer strength, especially in this style of tea which can be a little too gentle for my tastes. The...

Thank you Marlena for sharing this one with me!

Fruity and complex aroma, but completely without bitterness or bite, even when using a generous amount of leaf and steeping for a long time. The overall character of the cup is Darjeeling-like, although with less edge. Although it's mild in terms of aroma and bittern...

The tea is rather brisk and sharp, but not necessarily in an unpleasant way. Next time I will let it brew for a little less time. This tea has a distinct taste of baked red apples. If anyone has ever done this before, some of the apple caramelizes as it bakes and makes it a little sweeter than normal, there are de...

Ti Kuan Yin from Ten Ren Tea

Dec. 8th, 2010

Dark, slightly smoky aroma with a somewhat dusty and ultimately pretty mild taste. Taste isn't fabulously exciting but it's solid, especially for the value that Ten Ren's customers love! It's a pity I'm too lazy to brew loose tea, I kind of hate having all of these plastic teabag wrappers around. Anyway, it's a-ok.

Now and then I buy tea loose-leaf tea in Chinatown, Asian import stores, and other specialty food stores, and I am often disappointed. However, this one was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting much: I bought 100 grams of this Alishan Oolong for $7, which seemed extraordinarily cheap. I've had better Alishan Oolo...
