Jasmine Silver Pearls from Foojoy

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: China

93 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 13th, 2018

This is by far the best tea I have tasted. It has a smooth, delicate jasmine aroma without the bitterness. It piques my senses. Has a regal, elegant taste and doesnt cling to the palette. Blends well with fruit teas like mango and other citrus fruit.

Dragon Pearl Jasmine from Harney and Sons

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Fujian, China

84 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 12th, 2018

Firstly, this tea reminds me of the garden section of the home depot. Almost a clone of the smell(or I'm smell hallucinating). The aroma is extremely nice and is of course very jasmine. The flavor is amazing and has an undertone of a golden osmanthus oolong taste. Other than that, the jasmine taste is very smooth and s...

Pu Erh Hazelberry from Adagio Teas

Style: Flavored Pu-erh – Region: Yunnan, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 11th, 2018

This is an extremely good beginner Pu Erh. It has a very deep flavor that tastes like how the woods smell after rainfall. And has a leafy and tree bark aroma. Also, the hazelberry evens everything out perfectly, and gives a nice flavor that doesn't take anything away from the tea. I've found that i could only get a few...

Jan. 11th, 2018

This is my absolute favorite go-to green oolong tea. The aroma is pleasant and not very strong. But the aroma is the least of my worries when buying tea. The flavor is amazing, and I have trouble describing it. It lasts me 4 western style infusions and is an amazing value at 2.5 cents per cup when buying in pounds(or 1...

Black Dragon Pearls from Adagio Teas

Style: Yunnan Red – Region: Yunnan, China

79 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 11th, 2018

Overall, this is a very decent tea.
The smell is very nice but is just like a typical black tea.
The flavor is very nice and is almost like a less malty Irish breakfast tea with cocoa notes. The tea is naturally sweet and also very smooth and creamy. I re-steep this tea 4 times(western brewing) using less than 3 gra...

Sleeping Dragon from Adagio Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Fujian, China

40 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 11th, 2018

Overall this was not a great tea at all. I used no sugar and steeped for just above 2 minutes at 170 degrees. Although I fiddled the temperature around with no success.
The tea smells nice and is almost fruity.
Everything comes crashing down in the flavor though. It tastes like I took old vegetable broth and poured i...

Jan. 10th, 2018

Less tannic and lighter than English Breakfast blends, this tea is my go-to for afternoon sipping. A quintessential Chinese offering and packed in a tin.

Jasmine Tea (16 ct.) from Yamamotoyama

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: China

56 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 7th, 2018

I've only tried and reviewed a few jasmine greens so far, but Yamamotoyama's is the first whose jasmine aroma (dry bag and wet cup) clearly stood as vastly stronger than the flavor. The jasmine taste was detectable, no mistaking it, but couldn't deliver on the promise made by the smell. The aroma took me back to warm...

Black Mao Feng from Simon LĂ©velt

56 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 4th, 2018

Based on my experiences with black gunpowder, I was not surprised that this doesn't taste like Mao Feng at all. It's more like other Chinese black teas I've had. It's got just a tiny little bit of sweetness but it's hardly there. It's pleasantly almost-bitter (but I did make it pretty strong).
Resteeps quite decently...

Jan. 1st, 2018

This tea is interesting - the little pearls unfurl as it steeps, and it releases the most wonderful jasmine aroma. I discovered it in a fine Asian diner when a pot of it was placed on the table. It's wonderful flower scent drew me in, and I had two cups of it. Ever since, this has been a staple in my tea cabinet for gu...

Dec. 13th, 2017

Great Yunnan scent. Large leaves. Nice honey colored liquor. Taste is good, a bit mild. I'm sure this will be a great 'all day' tea. Might be a bit mild for milk or cream. Minor problem with I needed to purchase 10 packets to get the full amount I wanted.

Yunnan Silver Needles from Passenger Coffee

96 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 7th, 2017

This tea was served at Copper Cup coffee shop in Lancaster, PA. Prior to that, I hadn't even heard of Passenger Coffee, and this tea really blew me away; I thought it exceptional.

I tend not to like silver needle white teas because they're often a bit too subtle (or, put less diplomatically, bland or weak) for me, ...

Style: Lapsang Souchong – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 30th, 2017

Lapsang Souchong is not a tea for everybody, and this one is especially strong and smoky, a great beverage for a gloomy winter afternoon. You can almost feel woodsmoke in it. It's too aggressive for me to enjoy very often -- I have to be in a mood for it. But I could imagine a bit of it blended with another tamer bl...

Oct. 19th, 2017

This was one of the most classic examples of a Dian Hong or black tea from Yunnan, that I have tried in a long time.

The dry leaf is rich in golden tips, looking a little more greenish and silvery than in the company's picture. It smells mild but very pleasant and complex, with smoky and fruity notes typical of a Y...

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 19th, 2017

The dry leaves are a lovely dull brown colour. I just really like the look of them.

I'm having slightly mixed feelings. It is flowery as advertised, but it's also a bit "dull" in a way that cheap teabags often are. Maybe I used too much tea or let it steep for too long. Or maybe too many leaves and not steeped long ...

Oct. 17th, 2017

A very subdued tea. This one was pleasant, but disappointed me, given how much I normally tend to like Keemun.

Dry leaf smells pleasant and mild, a little fresher and cooler-smelling than I normally expect for Keemun.

Brews a rich, dark cup with a mellow flavor and a distinctly caramelly aroma. A little fresher,...

One of my favourite green teas. Doesn't go bitter (leave for less than two minutes) and it tastes so smooth and nice. It is my go to tea in Starbucks these days.

Earl Grey from Kusmi Tea

Oct. 17th, 2017

Bought a tin last time I was in Paris from their store. They have a lot of earl grey teas which made me a little skeptical on how "specialised" they could be with all these blends, but I still decided to buy a tin.

It has a nice aroma that sticks, but the tea itself I would say is average. Not sure which blend they...

Oct. 12th, 2017

I felt at the first sip of this tea like swallowing a gulf of bonfire smoke, or, say, some embers (for its slightly-sweet finish). When I have a one-hundred-gram tin of Prince of Wales, a cuppa at afternoon tea time would bring me a shot in the arm in my dull everyday routines as if to go camping on a weekend and have ...

Oct. 11th, 2017

Shou Mei is a very stem-y and leafy loose left. Caina says to steep 1tbsp for about 25 seconds, with all the stems and big leafs it's pretty hard to measure. It's actually a lot easier just to eyeball and take a guess, if you drink a lot of loose leaf tea it's not that hard to guesstimate it. To me it has a light flowe...

Oct. 11th, 2017

Iron Goddess is the first Oolong tea I've had. It has this nice earthy/herbal, flowery flavor, almost a natural sweetness to it's taste. You can clearly imagine the taste by it's smell, which is very much the same. Caina says you want to steep 1tsp for about 30 seconds, with resteeping of the leaves about 5 times. This...
