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

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....

Tie Kuan Yin Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

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

30 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5

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...

Bilouchun Green Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Bi Luo Chun – Region: Jiangsu, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...

Huangshan Maofeng Green Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Huangshan, Anhui, China

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...
