Ancient Gan Tong Tea from Wild Tea Qi

Style: Green Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

94 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 7th, 2013

A tea that really grew on me. At first I didn't know what to make of it, but after drinking a few cups I found myself loving it.

Dry leaf, mildly aromatic but subdued, becomes intensely aromatic when wet. But I find the resulting cup is again more subdued. Although the leaf is green, the brewed cup is dark in col...

I'm not hugely experienced with Yunnan green teas, but I tend to find them very interesting, and this one was no exception. This tea really amazed me with its ability to deliver infusion after infusion...the leaves seem to hold so much flavor!

Dry leaf is a mix of dark golden green and pale whitish leaves, and has ...

Wuyi Golden Water from Wild Tea Qi

Style: Da Hong Pao – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 20th, 2013

Dry leaf is aromatic, and consists of long, whole, slightly twisted leaves which unfurl quite slowly upon brewing.

There's a real explosion of aroma the minute the leaves touch water. The brewed cup is strongly aromatic, combining floral and honey-like tones that I normally only encounter in green Anxi oolongs like...

Wild Rock Oolong Tea (Da Hong Pao) from Wild Tea Qi

Style: Da Hong Pao – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 11th, 2013

The dry leaf looks brown with greenish tinges and is quite aromatic. Greener-looking than any other Da Hong Pao I've seen before.

The instant I poured water over the leaf, there was a huge explosion of aroma...wow! I used a much shorter steeping than I normally would.

Subtle in flavor: little bitterness, but co...

Wild Snow Sprout Tea from Wild Tea Qi

Style: Green Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 29th, 2012

This tea is completely unlike anything else I've tried. It has a lot going on in the aroma, and almost defies description.

I notice a smoky quality, almost like a hint of that campfire smoke of Lapsang souchong, paired with a hint of camphor, like in raw Pu-erh. But upon drinking, it is more floral and honey-like,...

Orchid Sprout Green Tea from Wild Tea Qi

Style: Green Tea – Region: Sichuan, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 19th, 2011

Beautiful, intense green-yellow leaves produce a rich, golden-green infusion that is very clear. Dry leaf looks like dragonwell in appearance. Upon brewing, the leaf loses its yellowish color and becomes lighter in color, almost grayish. The leaf looks very delicate.

Aroma is surprisingly strong and fresh. Grass...
