Qimen Black Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Keemun – Region: Qimen, Anhui, China

84 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5

Wonderful example of a Keemun tea! Keemun isn't my favorite type of tea which is why I rated it a bit lower but out of all the ones I've tried this one is my favorite. The aroma is nice and complex and the taste is smooth. The value is amazing too, its really cheap!

Really great tea! The aroma is fruity and floral and the taste is floral as well without tasting soapy at all. It is also very smooth and thick bodied with little astringency. Overall a very wonderful tea and I would buy it again.

Da Hong Pao Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Jul. 16th, 2018

The tea that I got is packaged in individual packets, each containing six grams (about three US tea bags worth) of relatively large, but broken pieces of tea leaf. It doesn't smell as strongly as most roasted oolongs, but it also doesn't smell overly roasted as inexpensive oolongs often do. Adding water brings out a bi...

Taiwan High Mountain Green Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Jade Oolong – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 31st, 2017

The can calls this "green tea", but it's clearly a jade oolong. It's much better quality than Starway's other oolong teas. It's mediocre compared to other Taiwanese high mountain oolongs, but they're usually much more expensive than this.

The dry tea smells fresh, mellow and pleasant. There's no hint of a roast. The...

Qimen Black Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Keemun – Region: Qimen, Anhui, China

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 5th, 2017

Like other Starway teas, this tea is very inexpensive ($6.99 for 6 ounces) and is packaged in a red tin of the same style as other Starway teas. The leaves are broken, but in reasonably large pieces.

The dried leaves are quite pungent and smell strongly of raisins. As the tea steeps, the aroma is of earth, oak leave...

Bilouchun Green Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Bi Luo Chun – Region: Jiangsu, China

Mar. 14th, 2017

This is presumably the same tea that the previous reviewers tasted, but it's packaged in individual 6g pouches (24 packets totalling 150g). At $10, I paid a little more than the previous reviewers did, as well.

That said, this is now one of my favorite green teas. I find it best with a long steep in cooler water (4-...

Green Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 20th, 2014

Another cheap green tea from this company, less impressive than the others but still pleasant and drinkable. Dry leaf smells mildly like a low-quality chun mee or mid-quality gunpowder tea. The leaf looks a bit intermediate between the two; it's dusty gray-green, and has a mixture of more narrow and wider twisted pie...

High Mountain Oolong Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

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

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 19th, 2014

A smooth, but ultimately mediocre oolong. Very dark, not terribly bitter, but also very uninteresting. Most Chinese restaurants have tea with more of an interesting flavor and aroma.

Dry leaf has a mild, mellow aroma. Upon brewing, the roasted aroma comes out more.

The brewed cup has an oily film on top of it....

Dec. 13th, 2012

I came across this randomly at an Chinese supermarket in Philadelphia, and like the last reviewer, I think it's one of the better bargains I've ever run across. I've been using it as a nice 'everyday' sort of green tea for a while now. The large six ounce tin I bought for about four dollars is still going strong.

Style: Tie Guan Yin – Region: Anxi, Fujian, China

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...

Aug. 31st, 2011

This was the second 'bargain buy' I found in the attractive black-and-green tins that have recently cropped up in Asian markets, from the import company Starway Inc. I think this tea was even more impressive than the first: at $3.98 for 6 ounces, this tea is very cheap, although significantly pricier than the other, H...

Aug. 29th, 2011

I can't believe the price on this tea: 6 ounces for $3. I wasn't expecting much, and I was literally blown away. This is an outstanding tea for this price. Many whole leaves, and mostly large, only slightly broken pieces. The leaf is lightly packed and takes up a lot of space. The instructions say to brew with 2-3...
