I've had this for a few weeks now, but I've put off this review because this is my first pure white tea. The leaves were picked in April of 2016, making the tea a little over two years old as of this review. It has a gentle yet complex aroma of autumn leaves, vanilla, cinnamon, old books, and hints of flowers and spice...

Jun. 10th, 2018

This is the most complex green tea I've ever tasted. It has a very fresh nutty and floral aroma and bright, slightly tangy (but not sour like some cheap gunpowder and chun mee) taste with notes of nuts, fresh herbs, citrus fruit, and hints of vegetables.

It resteeps well, brewing at least three good cups as long as ...

Jun. 8th, 2018

I wasn't as impressed with this as I was with the roasted version. It's pretty good, but nothing really stood out to me, and it lacks the complexity of the roasted version. Without the roast it's just another floral oolong to me. However, roasted Taiwanese oolongs are among my favorite teas, so maybe someone who loves ...

This is a weird tea. The dry leaves smell like chocolate and flowers, but as soon as water is added it smells like baked potatoes. It takes a while to brew: I usually end up brewing it for 6-7 minutes the first time and even longer for the next two infusions for a total of three cups.

The flavor is somewhat unusual...

Jun. 6th, 2018

The aroma of the dry leaves is very floral, more so than any other Tieguanyin I've had, and the wet leaves are even more aromatic. I'm brewing this in my gaiwan, and after a quick rinse the first infusion is floral and vegetal, with a coolness in the finish that I usually find in Taiwanese oolongs. The second infusion ...

It took me a few tries to get something I liked out of this tea, but I'm really enjoying it now. It seems to turn out best steeped for around 3 minutes with water just below boiling. The aroma is mostly floral and malty, with some dried fruit and a slight scent of potatoes in the background. The flavor is slightly malt...

Jun. 3rd, 2018

This was one of the free samples I picked with my Teavivre order. I put most of the sample in my gaiwan, leaving just enough for a later western style brew. The dry leaves smell quite roasted, but also floral and somewhat woody. The first infusion has an aroma much like the dry leaves, but a bit more floral. The taste ...

May. 31st, 2018

An amazing tea, somewhat soapy(probably due to steeping error), but the taste is excellent, and it smells amazing, but that is typical of a jasmine tea. This tea is very expensive, and I didn't see much improvement over other jasmine pearls.

May. 31st, 2018

The smell reminds me of a more "pure" version of the hazelberry pu erh tea from Adagio, and is very "woodsy" But with a more mineral of rocky taste, it is a very good value too, especially for a tea from almost 10 years ago.

An amazing and sweet tea! It is not very expensive and is a very high quality tea. The ball is tightly packed and I was able to get several infusions(keep in mind you can't break up the ball easily so I would use a at least 12 oz cup and fuse for 5 minutes). The aroma isn't strong but is very nice and sweet, it smells ...

Firstly, I made this tea at 185(90 Celsius) degrees for about 3 minutes. The first steeping was very nutty and I loved the taste very much, it had a lettuce taste which I would normally dislike but in this tea it worked. later steepings were lighter in taste and less nutty. I got 3 steepings using 1.5 teaspoons of tea,...

An overall, 'meh' tea. Was not milky or creamy at all, but that was expected. Had a cabbage taste which was the main thing I disliked about this tea. I would recommend this tea if you a fine with a strong vegetal taste.

A truly great tea!
I brew this with one teaspoon of tea per cup(about 1.5 grams I think) And I get 3 steepings. The aroma is nice but indescribable, and the taste is almost the same way. It has nutty notes and is very... "minerally". A pretty good value at $17 per 100g but definitely not cheap either.

Feb. 11th, 2018

Firstly, this tea is obviously VERY high quality and I could tell that right when I opened up the sample. The aroma of the dry leaf was fairly vegetal(spinach/kale) which is not what I am looking for in a tea, but the taste was much less so, especially when brewing for 2 mins instead of the 3-5 which is recommended. Wh...

Didn't particularly smell nice at all. It smelled of a salty seaweed with a nuttiness to it. The flavor was much better though and mostly got rid of the seaweed saltiness. Overall, what you'd expect from a genmaicha tea. Price isn't as much of a steal as I thought, because if you use the recommended amount(10g), it cos...

This is a good tea! Not what I expected at all though. Teavivre says to use 5g of tea so I will try that next time. The smell and taste is not very complex, a little vegetal and very floral. I do not think I will get this tea again though, as Adagio's golden flower tea is just too good of a price.

The first time I ever tried gunpowder tea, I hated it. So, I came to this tea very skeptical. I also don't like smoky flavors, so that was another potential issue. But, even with all of that working against it, I ended up loving this tea. It has a spicy note like black pepper, there's a moderately rich, buttery quality...

I was very impressed by this tea. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the reviews. But, I was very happy with it.

Firstly, this isn't what I'd call a full-bodied tea. It's not light, either. It's more in the middle. The notes are delicious and strong, but they don't fill up my entire palette. There's a lot of...

I've never had a tea as mouthwatering as this one and the bitterness which prompts it is really quite reasonable and consistent even after brewing it numerous times. It has a light, pleasant sweetness. But, really most of the presence is in a light thrust of bitterness at the start of a sip, which causes my mouth to wa...

I really loved this tea. It was the furthest I'd ever been in the direction of green oolongs when I tried it, so I was really surprised at the green, umami, mineral flavors. It was slightly buttery and more floral than the Nonpareil Taiwan Li Shan Oolong Tea. I liked that this one imparted a very relaxed feeling after ...

This is really unique, amazing tea. I really didn't find it all that floral. It was much more green, umami, mineral/salty, and had this buttery, rich body to it that really filled me up. The floral notes were there and ubiquitous, but not all that strong. I really liked that because some oolongs are just too heavy on t...

The dry leaves look brown and have a lightly roasted scent with notes of sweetness and flowers. This is a bit deceptive because after rinsing, the leaves are a very deep green and don't appear so roasted anymore.

The tea has roasted notes, sweet and floral notes which are reminiscent of gardenia but are sweeter and ...
