White Tea from Touch Organic

Style: White Tea – Region: China

69 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 27th, 2020

Though flavorful for white tea in a teabag, this is still a delicate tea. The dry teabags have a nice scent that smells dry and vegetal, like straw with a hint of dry grass or hay. The description on the box implies (but doesn't explicitly say) that this is white peony, being made up of both leaves and unopened buds. T...

Passionfruit White Tea from Touch Organic

Style: Flavored White Tea – Region: China

65 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 26th, 2020

I don't normally buy flavored white teas because the flavorings tend to overpower the tea, but I really like passionfruit and decided to give this one a try. Unfortunately, this tea was no exception. The flavor of this tea is straight-up passionfruit. That said, this tea is really tasty. The passionfruit flavor is stro...

Jasmine Tea from Fujian Tea Import & Export Co, Ltd.

65 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 4th, 2020

One of my kids gave me this for Christmas, having bought it at an Asian food store for an unknown price, so I'm basing the value rating off the mostly reasonable online costs for a 120g tin. The packaging of this tea confused me a bit at first, as it was branded just like one of the same title on RateTea, but in a tin...

Holiday Tea from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: China

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 24th, 2019

Let me start by saying that I generally don't like flavored teas at all. Most of them taste artificial to me, the rest don't taste like tea and because I love the taste of tea, I'm left dissatisfied by them. But, as you can see, I gave this 80/100, so I was quite pleased with it. I was surprised not simply because of m...

Organic Jinhao Golden Tip Black Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Black Tea – Region: Guangxi, China

89 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 23rd, 2019

I love this tea. I don't often purchase larger quantities of tea without trying it first, but this was on sale around Thanksgiving and I decided to give 50g a try. The leaves were nice and large. I wasn't surprised when I saw that this came from a Bai Hao tree, as the large leaves reminded me a bit of TeaVivre's Bai Ha...

Nan Nuo Mountain Assamica Varietal Black Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Menghai, Yunnan, China

97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 16th, 2019

This was another delightful tea. Of all the teas I've tried recently, it was most similar to the Big Snow Mountain of Mengku. It also reminded me a lot of some artisanal Assam teas I tried a while back from TeaOrb, a company that sells teas from regions of Assam that don't typically reach the western market.

Lapsang Souchong Smoky Black Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Fujian, China

75 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 12th, 2019

I'm not much of a fan of smoky teas. It's really a matter of personal history. It takes me back to a house filled with fire smoke or cigarette smoke, and my frantically opening windows, choking just to breathe. Now, somehow, this tea managed to clear that all away and elicit only my positive memories of smoke -- clean,...

Style: Black Tea – Region: Simao, Yunnan, China

86 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 4th, 2019

I was eager to try this tea based on its description. I love big-leafed black teas from Taiwan and also love Taiwanese oolongs, as well as Yunnan red teas, and this tea seemed to have something in common with all of these. It wasn't really like I expected though; it was quite good, but in a different way. It was my lea...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 31st, 2019

This was a peculiar yet pleasant jasmine-tea experience, stem to stern. The jasmine scent in both the dry bag and steeped cup were stronger than the tea, and than it asserted in the flavor. Instead, the flavor overall is very well-balanced between jasmine and tea. That's good, because the green tea tastes like a ver...

Traditional Process Dian Hong Black Tea of Feng Qing from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Fengqing, Yunnan, China

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 28th, 2019

A delightful and robust tea that I could happily drink day after day, and that has been one of my favorite teas to start the day with lately.

I found this tea interesting to compare to the "Classic 58" which I also ordered in the same batch. It looks very different in terms of leaf appearance, but is surprisingly si...

Oct. 27th, 2019

This is definitely my favorite tea I've ever ordered from Yunnan Sourcing, and one of the most exceptional teas I've ever tried. And this is coming from someone who usually is not a huge fan of the super-golden bud-heavy teas like this.

Opening the bag, there's an ethereal fragrance of flowers and sweet, bready malt...

91 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 10th, 2019

This was the first tea I bought from Yunnan Sourcing that was not actually grown in Yunnan province. I was a bit reluctant to order it, but also curious, because this company has been so consistently good at everything they sell, both in terms of price and quality. This tea turned out to be a little less interesting th...

Oct. 4th, 2019

This is one of those teas that I love and could drink every day, but when I've served it to others, I found it doesn't appeal to as wide an audience, especially among those with Western tastes. People who like more "serious" Chinese teas like it, it but a lot of people either find it boring or are put-off by the astrin...

2012 Yong De Blue Label Ripe (Shou) Pu-erh from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yongde, Yunnan, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 20th, 2019

Prepared tea from 8 g, coarsely ground, of a 357 g cake. Used 18 oz boiled water and brewed for 6 min; added 4 oz ice. Final = 2.9 g/8 oz. The tea had a strong earthy flavor, not acidic or astringent, and no mushroom flavor like some Pu-erhs. Very full bodied, and great taste! The tea liquor is black, which is why ...

Sep. 6th, 2019

I found this tea absolutely delightful. I continue to be impressed with Yunnan Sourcing, ordering one top-notch tea after another, all reasonably priced.

The dry leaf has the most amazing aroma of any tea I've sampled over the past couple years. It's both strong and complex, floral, malty, spicy, and lightly smoky a...

Aug. 7th, 2019

I'm not entirely sure how to understand Chinese branding, but "Fujian Tea Import & Export Co., Ltd.," itself a subsidiary of "China Tea Co., Ltd." seems to be a state-run company that handles international trade for a number of smaller Chinese tea companies in the Fujian province. This jasmine tea is further branded wi...

This is a well rounded tea - it is mellow and smooth, but has a good amount of earthy flavor too. The aroma is quite pleasant and it is offered at a good price.

Jul. 14th, 2019

SECOND UPDATE: I'm pretty sure now that this tuo is counterfeit and not really from the Xiaguan factory. I'd been drinking leaves from the surface, which were good, but just broke through to a second layer of chopped up leaves and twigs. I'm rather surprised at the amount of effort that went into counterfeiting a tea t...

TeaSource describes this tea as unusual, and I agree, and not just how it looks, and its origin (only my second tea I've ever tried from Guangxi) but also its flavor and aroma! I really loved this one and I found it easy to drink and enjoy.

The leaf is only lightly aromatic but the smell is very pleasant.

One of the most interesting teas I've tried in a while!

The dry leaf, which is quite aesthetic looking, smells very unusual and different. The aroma is strong, quite smoky and also herbaceous, with hints of malt and cocoa. It also reminds me a little bit of the smell of an ashtray though, and also of the "new car" s...

I ordered this exquisite tea from TeaSource with my first order, and it was both interesting and impressive.

The dry leaf is beautiful, curly and somewhat wiry. It is intensely aromatic and the aroma is beautiful: strongly malty, more like rye than other grains, with a nutty quality a little like peanut butter, but ...

I purchased Harney and Son's Organic Jasmine along with their Dragon Jasmine Pearls and their Jasmine (non-organic). I brewed all of them according to Harney and Son's directions (1 tsp tea to 1c water at 175F for 3 min).

Organic Jasmine has the least jasmine aroma and flavor of the three. That's not to say it isn't...

I ordered this tea loose and brewed it exactly to Harney & Sons directions (1 tsp per cup at 175F for 3 minutes). The aroma is sublime. The color is very light golden straw. The flavor is soft, fragrant, not bitter at all. Compared to Harney and Son's "Jasmine" and "Organic Jasmine" the Dragon Pearl Jasmine is more sub...

Apr. 6th, 2019

Found this in a Chinese market at the mall in Arcadia, CA. They had a huge selection of teas. I picked up a couple of ounces of this. It was priced at $30 per pound.

It is a very dark tea, black actually, and it has a heavy, smoky smell. However, after brewing the flavor is not as intense as you would expect. The br...
