Style: English Breakfast – Region: China80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 24th, 2017
I bought a box of teabags at the same time as a tin of loose tea to see how different they are. The answer is not much.Read Full Review
The box contains twenty individually sealed, standard, flat teabags. The dry tea is chopped up as fannings and has a fainter aroma than I get when sniffing a tin of loose tea, but once it starts br...

I saw some Harney & Sons teas in a health food store and remembered that they got high reviews here, so I decided to try some. I got a tin of loose leaf English Breakfast and a box of tea bags. The box of teabags says that the blend is 100% Keemun, but the tin just says "blended black tea". I wasn't sure that they were...Read Full Review

While somewhat broken, the dry tea is in relatively large pieces and the golden tips that the style is known for are apparent. The aroma is malty with notes of raisins.Read Full Review
While brewing, the tea smells wonderful. The maltiness is pronounced, but tannic, leafy and perhaps mineral elements are also present.
The first ...
Style: Black Tea – Region: China75 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 12th, 2017
The dry tea is quite broken and, though there is quite a bit of dust at the bottom of the tin, most of the pieces are noticeably larger than the tea in the teabags. The aroma is faint, but malty and pleasant.Read Full Review
Adding the water draws out a smoky, earthy aroma that is characteristic of other Chinese black teas. The ini...

Apr. 11th, 2017
This tea smells great, but the flavor is weak. The aroma is both earthy and sweet. The flavor, though, is a pale shadow of the aroma. The first time I bought a box of this tea, I assumed that it had to be stale because of improper packing or storing. A second box was the same.Read Full Review
The tea isn't bitter or astringent at a...

Like other Starway teas, this tea is very inexpensive ($6.99 for 6 ounces) and is packaged in a red tin of the same style as other Starway teas. The leaves are broken, but in reasonably large pieces.Read Full Review
The dried leaves are quite pungent and smell strongly of raisins. As the tea steeps, the aroma is of earth, oak leave...

Apr. 5th, 2017
Harney says this blend is 100% Keemun and it shows...tastes just like Keemun, which I like, but definitely more like the more modern English Breakfast style than a Keemun picked at random. Fuller-bodied and richer than most English Breakfast, but softer and less crisp.Read Full Review
Dry leaf has an aroma that is gentle and pleas...

This tea is in large sachets that contain 3g of tea each instead of the usual 2g. The package gives no indication where the tea is sourced other than that it's a product of China. The package is a resealable, heavy mylar pouch, but the sachets inside have no individual wrapping. The dry leaves are surprisingly large fo...Read Full Review

This tea is absolutely sublime, but has a price tag to match.Read Full Review
I was wandering around Chicago's Chinatown yesterday looking for interesting tea and saw a display of Prince of Peace's premium "gift box" teas. At $19.99 for 150g, I was worried that the quality wouldn't match the price, but decided to try it anyway. I w...

Less than $6 for 2 ounces?...I couldn't resist :)Read Full Review
The tiny curly leaves smell of earth and perhaps a cinnamon sweetness.
I brewed this "semi-western" style (I normally use gong fu style). Using 4 grams of leaf in a 10 ounce teapot.
With this particular setup, my goal is to get two infusions (about 20oz of tea in ...

As mentioned in a previous review, the 100 tea bags in the box aren't sealed in any way, so the first thing I did upon opening the box was to put the bags into an airtight cannister.Read Full Review
The initial aroma of the tea reminds me of damp oak leaves with a hint of maltiness. The flavor is tannic and astringent, but is so mi...

In my latest black tea frenzy, I decided to give this one a try since it seems pretty unique.Read Full Review
It is apparently a black (more fully oxidized) version of the Water Fairy oolong, which interested me.
I've seen that various companies offer black tea versions of oolongs such as Tie Guan Yin and even Alishan tea.

So ever since a local shop stopped carrying my favorite teas I haven't really purchased much black tea lately. Read Full Review
I've been impressed with this company's teas so far, and went ahead and added this one to a recent order.
The aroma of the dry, thin, slightly curly leaves is very nice...caramel and maybe a little fresh ...

Strong flavor and aroma. Delightful Yunnan. I bought these for dining out. When I go out for breakfast, I take some of these along. I enjoy this tea and find it much more flavorful than the national brand the restaurant offers.Read Full Review

Aug. 31st, 2016
This is a hard tea to review. I greatly enjoyed drinking it, but was not overwhelmed with uniqueness of any kind. Rather, it was simply enjoyable. The flavor has hints of caramel, honey, and sweetness with a slight astringency. The cup is very smooth. I would recommend as a black tea, but it is nothing unique, albeit v...Read Full Review

Dry, this tea has a very subtle aroma. The liquor is amber colored. Overall, a bit milder than I expected from previous black snail.Read Full Review

Jun. 16th, 2016
A lovely tea, mellow, and complex, among my favorite Lapsang Souchongs ever sampled. Thank you again to TeaVivre for the sample! This is a traditional Chinese lapsang souchong, it lacks the strong smoky aroma that the more widely-known style of tea popular in the West has. Compared to other traditional Lapsang Souch...Read Full Review

This was the most disappointing pure tea I've ever tried from Harney & Sons.Read Full Review
Dry leaf not very aromatic, but the aroma is pleasant. The leaf is pretty, with fine wiry pieces, fairly finely broken...the faint aroma suggests spice and dried fruit, like fig or date.
The brewed cup is surprisingly lacking in aroma. ...

Apr. 25th, 2016
I love when I find a tea that is unique and different, and this one certainly fits that description. My first impression is that of burnt sugar/caramel. The liquor is a beautiful light golden brown color. The aroma is like a huge wave of burnt caramel and chocolate hitting all of your senses. The taste is a more balanc...Read Full Review

Apr. 22nd, 2016
I have had a lot of Keemun, but never before sampled Hao Ya A. The overall experience of drinking this tea was somewhat different from what I expected. It's similar, but recognizably different from the Hao Ya B, and I'm not convinced that I like it better. I like both, and this one is not that much more expensive (s...Read Full Review

Dry leaf is fine and dark in color, pleasantly aromatic, and the aroma is quite complex, it suggests fruit, spice, and dried flowers, a little like potpourri, with vegetal and chocolatey notes. The smell reminds me of Christm...
Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China93 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 16th, 2016
Appearance: The dry leaf is intact, curled, and often intertwined with other leaves, making it hard to easily separate. The leaf is pure bud covered in a light golden-orange down that comes off on the fingers when handled without care. Some of the underlying dark-brown leaf is visible closer to the non-terminal end of ...Read Full Review

I loved this tea. It reminded me a lot of the Spring Keemun from Andrews & Dunham, both in the smell and taste, and the appearance of the leaf.Read Full Review
Mild but pleasant smell to the dry leaf, which looks very curly in shape, little snail-like curls a lot like bi luo chun. Smells sweeter than other Keemun Mao Feng, but st...

I steeped this near boiling, around 200 degrees, in my gaiwan with 5g of tea. The first infusion brought forth a light orange liquor with a light black tea taste and hints of chocolate. It is almost sweet with no astringency. The aroma is...
