Dong Ding Oolong from Tradition

Style: Jade Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

100 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 31st, 2021

This is a really great tea, it has a complex aroma and flavor. This type of tea is normally expensive but this one is cheaper yet the taste is perfect. And of course, as you all know my biggest issue with teas is ones that are too astringent, and this tea was not astringent at all so it's perfect!

Darjeeling Tea from Tradition

Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India

88 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 12th, 2019

The oversized bags contain nearly 3g of medium-sized (for loose leaf tea) broken leaf pieces. It's definitely not a typical Darjeeling, though. Most Darjeelings are less oxidized than other black teas and tend to have more vegetal or floral aroma notes. This one's different. There's no green apparent on the leaves and ...

Smaragdine Green Tea from Tradition

Style: Green Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

72 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Aug. 21st, 2018

Tradition's "Smaragdine" (which just means "emerald-like") green tea is a longjing (dragon well) style tea from Taiwan. The sachets hold just under three grams of full-leaf tea that has some tips.

Like most green teas, it benefits from cooler water (165°) and shorter steeping times. The review is based on four minu...

Sweet Orange Tea from Tradition

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 21st, 2017

The oversized sachet contains 3g of black tea that is broken, but large pieces. The orange scent is strong and there's a kind of vanilla sweetness that is almost cloying. Even so, the aroma of the tea comes through, smelling perhaps like either a Darjeeling or Chinese tea. Unfortunately, the packaging doesn't indicate ...

Earl Grey Tea from Tradition

Style: Earl Grey Tea – Region: ?????

85 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 28th, 2017

The oversized teabags contain tea that is quite broken, but still much larger than fannings. It smells strongly of bergamot.

After brewing, the aroma is a nice balance of citrus and an earthy and malty tea. The package doesn't say where the black tea is sourced. It tastes Chinese to me, but the only unflavored black...

A-Li-Son Oolong Tea from Tradition

Style: High Mountain Oolong – Region: Chiayi (County), Taiwan

Jan. 18th, 2017

What a steal! Where I live (Ohio), it sometimes difficult to find nice Tea in an actual store but every now and then you get lucky. I picked this up at a local International Market not expecting much out of it as the price was very cheap (100 grams for $7.99). I've not had much luck with similar purchases in the past i...

Nov. 10th, 2013

Beautiful jade green oolong with low oxidation and a bright, clear aroma and flavor. The natural sweetness is amazing! Aroma mirrors the sweetness but has distinct floral notes.

I have become very impressed by this brand, and the quality of their teas for very reasonable prices. One of my local Asian markets often ...

Best Oolong Tea from Tradition

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 13th, 2013

My mother really loved oolong tea, and first introduced me to this one as a recommendation since she first found it in a local Asian market. She loved the convenience of the foil wrapped sachets that made it convenient for her to stick in her purse when traveling, and I came to love the clean, simple, green oolong flav...

Sep. 12th, 2013

The best oolong I've had in a tea bag; nothing else comes close. Definitely up there with the top teas I've ever sampled from a tea bag.

Even in the bag, this smells like high-quality green oolong. Very similar to the two loose-leaf. The tea bag is fairly roomy, giving the leaf quite a lot of room to expand, and ...

Dong Ding Oolong from Tradition

Style: Jade Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 28th, 2013

The aroma is lightly floral and lightly green with the usual earthiness I associate with oolongs.

The taste is slightly bitter, like a green, with hints of orange blossom and a hint of ginseng. The taste is both very pleasant and subtle.

After multiple brews the taste becomes more green and herbal and less flora...

Feb. 12th, 2013

I was happy with this tea, and especially its reasonable price! To me, it had a subtle taste, like most oolongs, and I was happy with how smooth and soothing it was to drink. I'm hoping to buy some the next time I go to my local Asian supermarket :)

I thought this tea was very good for its price! It was smooth and reminded me a little of chicken soup (odd, I know, but it had a comforting quality!) I'll definitely be having this tea again! :)

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...

Dec. 15th, 2010

Very strong floral aroma to the dry leaf. The cup brews a deep golden color, and its aroma is much more subtle than that of the dry leaf. Smooth flavor. Overall character is mellow, deep, but with a metallic aftertaste.

I made three infusions, 2 minutes, 3 minutes, and much longer for the last. The aroma was hig...

Nov. 29th, 2010

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...
