87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 7th, 2015

The aroma of the curly green leaves is like a spring themed explosion in my nose, there are intense notes of orchid, honeysuckle and lilac accompanied by fresh vegetation, mown hay, and a hint of sweet chestnut at the finish. It is powerful and heady, like being in a humid conservatory where everything is floral and i...

Yi Fu Chun from Yezi Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Fujian, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 28th, 2014

Oh my that is a pleasant and heavy aroma, it seems the leaves collected the dense and heavy feeling of fog rather than the wispy one. There are notes of oak wood, molasses, cocoa, and a touch of smoke. It is intense, not sweet, but more like a rich molasses cookie and cocoa powder.

decided to do something a little ...

The aroma of the dry leaves is sharply sweet and a bit fruity, specifically a bit muscatel, there are strong notes of cocoa, caramelized sugar, orchids, and oak wood. It is a rich and bright aroma that wafts from the leaves, and certainly quite sweet. I would say that the aroma is one of the more sweeter Chinese black ...

Style: High Mountain Oolong – Region: Taichung, Taiwan

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 12th, 2014

Very sweet and yeasty, like freshly baking bread. There is also the intoxicating scent of honey and orchids with a small afterthought of allspice. Here is where it gets weird, the aroma reminds me of the smell of Amanita bisporigera aka Destroying Angel, the world's most toxic mushroom, and that is awesome. How is that...

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 12th, 2014

The aroma of this Tie Guan Yin is nothing short of heavenly, very floral and sweet. I mainly notice orchids and honeysuckles but for an extra treat I can pick out the aroma of scuppernongs.

I was able to get four steepings out of this tea. The taste starts out very floral, primarily orchids with a hint of lilac, it ...

Li Shan Oolong Tea from Yezi Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Chiayi (County), Taiwan

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 12th, 2014

The main floral aroma is honeysuckles, not so much the heady summery aroma of honeysuckles but the late spring early bloom where the flowers are just starting to open their petals. Hiding beneath the freshly blooming honeysuckles are notes of sweet honey and a touch of rose.

I was able to get four steeps using West...
