Oolong Se Chung from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Se Chung Oolong – Region: China

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 17th, 2023

This is a nice, mellow oolong, and comes in at a very attractive price. There is nothing attention-grabbing about it; it is just a good tea. The aroma hints at woodlands and hay, and the flavor offers more of the same, with a dash of minerally tannins and vegetal notes. It is fairly light on the palate, and goes dow...

Assamica Black Tea from Mei Zi Qing Village from Yunnan Sourcing

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

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 8th, 2023

I tried this tea right when I ordered it, but did not like it. It had few objectionable qualities, and was actually quite smooth, but simply seemed a little boring. However, I set it in my cupboard for quite some time and sure enough, it has started tasting more interesting after about a year and a half. Still, it is n...

Organic Wuyuan Black from Little Red Cup

81 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 1st, 2023

This tea is really aromatic and smells toasty and bready. It tastes how it smells however it’s just a bit too astringent for my taste but it definitely isn’t the worst and overall it’s a high quality tea, I’m just personally sensitive to astringency.

Organic Wuyuan Black from Little Red Cup

92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 1st, 2023

This is my first black tea that I've ever tried from Wuyuan county; prior to this I have only had green teas, which I've tended to like.

The dry leaf has a fine texture and looks slightly greyish with reddish highlights. It has a pleasing aroma that strongly resembles the lighter examples of Keemun, but is rather di...

Yunnan "Pine Needles" Green Tea from Mengku from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Green Tea – Region: Shuangjiang, Yunnan, China

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 20th, 2022

Not my favorite tea. A little bit soapy and bitter tasting and there wasn’t much interesting stuff going on to redeem it. The aroma was really weak too so overall not worth it for me. I’m giving it a 50 because it’s not that great but it’s also like not too horrible. I wouldn’t buy it again though.

Oct. 17th, 2022

Cup at home, made from small, coiled, curly leaves of Chinese green tea from Zheijiang, some of which resemble granulate. Pours clear straw (against white china) with no sediment. Clear, leafy aroma with mild touches of nuts and hints of fruit. Bitter, leafy flavour with nutty touches and dusty hints. Moderately astrin...

Upton China Yunnan FBOP from Upton Tea Imports

Aug. 24th, 2022

This has a pleasant woodlands aroma, but the flavor is dull and finishes on a bitter note. It is selling for a rock bottom price. You could do worse than this.

Decaf Green Tea from Triple Leaf Tea

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
May. 25th, 2022

The tea bags are wrapped in paper inside a cellophane-sealed cardboard box. After opening the package, I put them into an airtight container.

The dry tea has a faint, grassy smell. The brewing tea smells quite a bit fresher than I expected. It's vegetal, slightly tannic and recognizably green tea.

For a decaf gre...

45 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 10th, 2022

Mild all around. Aroma is a weak Yunnan. Flavor is a mediocre Yunnan, with a slight burnt after taste. Liquor brews (5min) to a deep brown. Not impressed.

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
May. 6th, 2022

An almost all-organic green tea-tisane blend, with Chinese green tea, apple, hibiscus, rosehip, strawberry, and strawberry flavoring. It has a very pleasant aroma and is offered at a good price. I like SerendipiTea's collection of flavored teas. In this, the apple and strawberry come through clearly, and the hibiscus...

I recently ordered some tea and bulk herbs from iherb.com. This Numi pu erh brick was novel enough that I couldn't pass it up. I'll say up front that I'm not a huge fan of shou pu erh, but I've tried enough varieties at varying price points and even found some that I enjoy that I should at least be able to tell what I'...

Dec. 27th, 2021

This was a special release from Upton, meant to be a replica of one of the teas tossed overboard during the Boston Tea Party. It is a blend of China Congou and Chinese Bohea - the latter is a new one for me. It originates in the Wuyi Mountains and may have been the first black tea sold to the British. Overall this i...

Here is a nice Yunnan. The aroma is fresh and woodsy, like taking an April walk in a park. The flavor is smooth and mild, with a little bit of astringency on the palate. It is well worth the modest price.

Nov. 7th, 2021

Thanks Dewey for sharing this with me! This was a smooth, mellow, mild green tea that was easy to brew and enjoy.

The leaf of this smells very fresh, a sort of sweet fragrance, almost floral, typical of high-quality, tippy Chinese green teas. It's pleasant but also hard to anticipate how it is going to taste, so I w...

This tea is really good! It’s aromatic and bready smelling which I like. The taste is really smooth and it has a complex flavor with slight bitterness but in a good way! This is a really enjoyable tea!

Oct. 30th, 2021

This tea is pretty smooth and easy to drink, however it is a bit boring and doesn’t have a super strong aroma. I’m still giving it a highish score just because it is a comforting tea to drink and it doesn’t have any outwardly negative qualities like being too harsh or astringent.

This tea is so good!! It smells nice and has a good flavor but with none of the harshness or bitterness that tea sometimes has. It’s really smooth and bready but still interesting and fragrant

This tea is really good! It has a bready and raisiny aroma it tastes very smooth and somewhat chocolaty. My one complaint is that it’s very slightly astringent in the aftertaste.

I found this a pleasant tea to drink but it was not among my favorites. It was surprisingly different from its organic counterpart. Of the two, I strongly preferred this one.

The leaf is tightly rolled and quite beautiful. Compared to the organic version of this tea, it looks a little paler in color and slightly loo...

Beautiful large leaves. The aroma is wood and spice, not pronounced. The liquor is a medium amber after a 5 minute steep. Taste is clean with a slight malt after taste. I'd say this is a good tea for sipping. For me, no sugar or milk needed.

Sep. 10th, 2021

This tea was quite singular, unlike most of the other teas from Yunnan Sourcing. I thought it was a good tea but it was a bit too much for me. It's strong, both by flavor and caffeine. I am reviewing the Spring Harvest from 2020.

This tea took up a lot less space than most all the other Yunnan Teas I've tried. The d...

This was a straightforward tea that I found easy to like; I became a fan from the first sip. It's robust, easy to brew, easy to drink, and pleasing in both flavor and aroma. Overall, it is more flavorful than aromatic though.

The dry leaf is beautiful, a very bright yellow color, not as orangeish as many of these ti...

This was a really enjoyable tea that also had a lot of depth and complexity.

The dry leaf is made exclusively of luscious, thick, fuzzy buds that are kinda rolled on themselves; the picture does not really do it justice. Although it seems to be pure buds, they look a bit more mature than on some tippy teas, and they...

This was a robust green tea that was challenging to brew, but rewarding when I got it right. Thank you to Dewey for sharing this one with me!
