Feb. 27th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is fruity and sweet with a touch of spice and molasses. The brewed tea is also fruity but there cocoa notes as well. The liquid is honey sweet and fruity with cocoa notes.

The taste is quite fruity with strong tones of cocoa and honey. It is very tasty and I was able to get multiple steeps fro...

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 24th, 2014

The aroma is a blend of roasted nuts, cocoa, and beets, it is quite savory rather than sweet. Brewing the tea brings out a fruity quality and sweetness along with the roasted nuts and cocoa quality.

The taste is quite bold and rich, it starts out with roasted nuts and dark chocolate, it has a dry mouth feel and a s...

Dec. 14th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is fairly delicate with notes of muscatel, oak, and summer berries. When brewed it takes a turn for the malty and stronger oak notes.

The taste is bright and clean with notes of muscatel, sweetness, and dark chocolate. It is a great afternoon tea.

I thought this tea was great. I really liked the roasty smell, and thought it was a great tea for a cool fall morning.

I didn't notice a peppery smell or taste at all, so I feel like the description is deceiving.

This tea isn´t stronger neither light to the palate, it serves when you have a company and tell or discuss some theme.

This tea have been discontinued for teavana, but I don´t miss this tea.

Oct. 16th, 2013

I absolutely adore this tea. Wonderful amber color. Smooth Yunnan flavor with a sweet caramel taste being most prominent and a light spicy, peppery tone as a highlight. Does well with a short one minute steep for the first infusion, 2 minutes for the second, and 5 for the third.

It is a bit pricey, but worth every ...

Oct. 16th, 2013

This is one of those teas that I first purchased a few years ago, and became one of my few go-to teas when I needed a bit of warmth and comfort. I know it is either in short supply or sold. At right now, but I was overjoyed to be able to add an ounce to my last order!

Complex, warm and soothing. This is great tea fo...

Top notch! A rich, complex black tea with a classic Yunnan character, yet a unique signature of its own. Great for multiple infusions, and exhibits different characteristics in each cup.

Mandala recommended 2-4 pearls; it looks like 3 pearls is about a typical serving that I'd use for a cup of tea, so that was spo...

Aug. 9th, 2013

This is a very wonderful tea, reasonably priced (about $4 per ounce on their website at the date of this review) and having appeal to both tea newbies and veterans alike. I like it better brewed for slightly shorter times than those recommended by Rishi, which seems to eliminate any bitterness and enhance the complexit...

Jun. 7th, 2013

I was expecting this tea, on the basis of its name, to be basically the same tea as Rishi's China Breakfast, as that tea also comes from Yunnan province. I don't know if it is a different tea, if it was simply a different batch that I tried, or if something about steeping it in a tea bag changed the character, but it ...

Apr. 8th, 2013

Purchased at the Newark Natural Foods coop in Newark, Delaware. I suspect that this may not have been very fresh.

Aroma is peppery and slightly fruity. Smooth flavor, but mild. Flavor slightly sour. Overall character a lot more like shu (ripened) Pu-erh than like other Yunnan gold teas I've sampled. Upon drinki...

The aroma is "earthy". The leaves are rolled into small balls, thus the snail name. Liquor has rich color. Excellent clean clear flavor. I'm impressed with this tea. Certainly it has made it to my top 3. I will purchase this tea again and again.

I only had one bag of this, so I brewed it according to the instructions - straight off the boil and let steep for four minutes. Neither the leaves or the brewed tea had a very strong aroma. I'm not sure what to compare it to: it was something dark and faintly bitter smelling, but not like coffee or chocolate. More lik...

The aroma is very light and floral and the taste matches! I find the taste to be a mix of floral and citrus with a very mild tea flavor. Very subtle and enjoyable!

I only got a sample if this tea but definitely plan on getting more from Agagio as it might be my favorite of their teas

The first time I brewed this tea, it had a dry aroma, but I liked it. Although it was a bit bitter, it was strong and full-bodied. The second infusion had a more flavorful and interesting aroma, and was less bitter, but still strong. I liked it better. I added cream and sugar.

I liked this tea a lot. It had a subtle flavor and was really smooth. I thought the tea smelled a little like cooked greens, which I like, so I had no problem with that. I probably wouldn't pay the price, but I can see why others would, it's a high quality tea.

This tea is interesting. It has a strong aroma of molasses, which is a little weird. The flavor is pretty good. It's strong and deep. I added cream and sugar. It's kind of hard to brew with my small infuser because the balls expand so much.

I don't think this is my kind of tea. It's a little weird, but all right. I'm not sure how to describe it. It doesn't have a very strong flavor, and I tend to like strong tea with bold flavors. I added cream and sugar. It's not worth the price to me. It also generates a lot of foam in the leaves while brewing, and ther...

In spite of having tried quite a few Yunnan teas by now, this was something completely different for me! Very interesting, although a little bit difficult to brew to satisfaction. The dry leaf, rolled into dense spheres, has only a mild aroma, more suggestive of Keemun than other Yunnan teas.

I first used a small ...

Dry leaf, consisting almost exclusively of unbroken golden tips, is extremely aromatic and fresh, with the characteristic quality that all black teas from Yunnan province seem to have, but fruitier than normal.

Upon brewing, the leaf turns darker in color and produces a rich brown cup.

Like other Yunnan Dian Hong...

Complex and smooth, a bit on the weaker side though. Dry leaf has a strong aroma, characteristic of Yunnan red teas.

Aroma is complex. Moderately smoky, resembling tobacco smoke and smoky green teas (like gunpowder) more than most smoky black teas, also moderately fruity, almost like a Keemun. Flavor unusually sm...

Nov. 28th, 2011

A classic Yunnan black tea, unusually smooth for a tea bag. Aroma is complex, with hints of cocoa, wood, and fruit. Peppery finish, characteristic of Yunnan teas.

I recommend a longer steeping time (5+ min). This tea is not as aromatic as a loose-leaf Yunnan, and its flavor is mild so you can steep it for a long ...

Jingmai Mountain produces some amazing teas, and this one from Samovar is no exception. They are right on the money when they describe the taste and aroma as: "Deep and malty with hints of baked, bittersweet chocolate and raisin sugar. Lightly roasted body with a slightly sweet finish."

Optimal brewing is with sprin...
