Oriental Beauty from Teas Etc

Style: Oriental Beauty – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 5th, 2013

Definitely my favorite bai hao (oriental beauty) oolong yet. This is not a type of oolong I generally like, but I found this to be an atypical example of its style.

Significantly roasty aroma, and flavor is bolder, although less smooth.

I am curious...is this a competition winner because it was bolder in flavor ...

Huang Jin Gui Oolong Tea from Teas Etc

Style: Golden Osmanthus – Region: Fujian, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 21st, 2012

Huang Jin Gui or Golden Osmanthus is one of my favorite types of oolong.

I only had the opportunity to sample this once, briefly, at World Tea East, so I can't comment on experimenting with brewing it in different ways, but I thought it a typical and high-quality example of this type of oolong.

Aroma is predomina...

Tung Ting from Teas Etc

Style: Jade Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 27th, 2012

Very complex. Light, but bold.

Aroma is simultaneously floral and herbal. Strong, almost orchid-like fragrances emerge and vanish from an herbaceous background.

Even when unsweetened, it tastes like a bit of honey has been added.

This is one of the best examples of this tea that I've seen in this price range...

Tanzanian Silver Needle from Teas Etc

Style: Silver Needle – Region: Tanzania

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 23rd, 2012

I was really interested to try a silver needle tea produced in Tanzania, and I am glad I tried it as it was quite interesting tasting as well.

Fairly light in color, but full-bodied flavor. I like this tea significantly more than most Chinese examples of silver needle that I've tried, which tend to be too mild for ...

Tanzanian Black from Teas Etc

Style: Black Tea – Region: Tanzania

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 11th, 2011

I sampled this tea at World Tea East and liked it a lot, wrote the review, but waited to post it until the tea was actually released.

I have actually now sampled a handful of black tea from Tanzania, including the mainstream brand Chai Bora, and single estate teas, both orthodox and CTC.

This tea had a malty arom...

Golden Monkey Superior Organic from Teas Etc

Style: Golden Monkey – Region: Yunnan, China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 12th, 2010

The dry leaves of this tea are very beautiful, and have a fuzzy,soft look to them and are yellow golden color. This color changes to a reddish brown hue after being steeped. The liquor is smooth and has a medium mouth feel, right in between thin and thick. This tea’s liquor was quite spicy, reminiscent of black peppe...

Bi Lo Chun Reserve from Teas Etc

Style: Bi Luo Chun – Region: China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 25th, 2010

This quickly became one of my favorite teas.

This tea has a very delicate yet distinct flavor, milder than a dragonwell, but somewhat similar.

The delicateness of this tea make it a perfect afternoon or evening sip and I find they inspire relaxation.

One of the more unusual looking leaves when dry, simil...

Dragon Well pre-Qing Ming First Grade from Teas Etc

Style: Dragon Well (Long Jing) – Region: Zhejiang, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 26th, 2010

As a fan of pre-rain Dragon Well I am always anxious to find one with a good flavor for a reasonable price. This one is a great balance of flavor and aroma for a very good price considering it is a pre-Qing Ming tea.
I keep this one on hand throughout the year and look forward to the new harvest.
