Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: Guangdong, China90 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 20th, 2017
This is a 2nd generation Mi-Lan varietal Dancong from the Phoenix Mountains (Fenghuang Shan) in Guangdong Province. I've heard amazing things about this type of Oolong and I must say, it does not disappoint. It tastes extremely elegant and well crafted. It is rather smooth and leaves a coating around your mouth along w...Read Full Review
Style: Tie Guan Yin – Region: Anxi, Fujian, China83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 14th, 2017
I think this is a good example of Tie Guan Yin. This one is definitely of the greener, less oxidized and less roasted variety. Read Full Review
The dry leaf aroma is very pleasant and "green".
When brewed the aroma is very fresh veggie-like, with notes of butter, and floral as well. Not intensely floral, but it's there.
Style: Se Chung Oolong – Region: China83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 9th, 2017
The reviews as well as the very low price intrigued me enough to buy a large order of this tea.Read Full Review
I wasn't quite sure what to expect as, while mostly positive, the reviews describe a wide range of flavors.
The rolled, snail-like leaf smells toasty. For some reason I expected a much greener aroma.
I loaded up 5 gr...

This one is actually currently available.Read Full Review
I ordered 2 15g samples about a month ago. The fact I still have some left is a clue as to what I think about it :)
I admit to buying this because it's a unique brick oolong. I also figured that given the high price it should be good.
I've since learned that price is not...

Yet another tea from this company that I've been ordering lately. Originally, I received a free sample of their Big Red Robe along with a few gaiwans I ordered from them. Since then I've been buying this tea regularly.Read Full Review
As I understand it, this is one of the "house teas" that comes from the owner's tea farming vil...
Style: Hairy Crab Oolong – Region: China87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 16th, 2016
I thought this was a delightful tea. I have tried a Mao Xie before, and loved it, but it was an unbranded type that someone brought me back from China so I was not able to review it. This one was a lot like I remember it: pungent and a bit edgy and odd, but in a way that I liked.Read Full Review
The dry leaf has an aroma that is ...

Had this a couple of days ago. One of the best oolongs I have ever had. Slight to no astringency. Honey and floral notes with a slight buttery taste. Aroma was very much like a typical oolong with hints of burnt grass. Read Full Review

Apr. 7th, 2016
One of the first oolongs I've tried outside of a Chinese restaurant, so my palate is not well developed. I steeped this in my gaiwan with 5g of tea and 180-200 degree water. Read Full Review
The first and second steeps were reminiscent of fields and meadows. The aroma was sweet and smelled of hay and honey. The initial taste was ve...

Dec. 20th, 2015
I used to drink Dynasty's tea bags regularly, around 2002-2005, before I got into loose-leaf tea. They're pretty good, and they were my fall-back when I was unable to find Ten Ren's (my favorite oolong in a tea bag, but not widely available).Read Full Review
This tea is only mildly aromatic, and it has a smooth, well-balanced flav...
Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: Guangdong, China93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 8th, 2015
The dry leaf is medium-long and twisted in the same style as many dan congs. Its color ranges from deep brown to light golden-yellow. The leaves are generally whole, as would be expected of this grade. When steeping, the leaves unfurl very slowly, and it takes around six steeps to more or less open them completely. The...Read Full Review
Style: Da Hong Pao – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 5th, 2015
This tea smells really good, in fact I will go out on a limb and say this is the sweetest Da Hong Pao I have ever sniffed! There are strong notes of rich cocoa, hovering between dark and milk chocolate, toss in the notes of baking biscuits, moderate notes of slightly fruity pipe tobacco and autumn leaves, and finish of...Read Full Review
Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Fujian, China73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 22nd, 2015
This is a classic example of the "modern green style" of oolong, popular in Taiwan and China these days, with no discernable roast or oxidation.Read Full Review
The dry leaf is an intense green color with yellowish accents, not particularly tightly rolled, and not very aromatic.
As soon as water hits the leaves though, there's a...

Feb. 8th, 2015
Great oolong! Subtle all around; light floral tones, light color, and light vegetable flavor all make for a pleasing drink. Tea left a buttery soft texture on my lips. Simply Good Teas lives up to their name; nothing overly fancy, but very good!Read Full Review

A classic Wuyi oolong of high quality, with whole, intact leaves and a complex aroma. The dry leaf has a pleasant roasty smell, with a honey-like floral note. I find the dry leaf very pleasing to smell.Read Full Review
Brews up a rather clear and light cup with a light flavor. The aroma is both roasty and floral with nutty notes...

Dec. 19th, 2014
Wow. This tea is pretty exceptional...buttery smooth, but incredibly rich. The dominant notes are of dried fruit, like fig, date, or raisin. It does have a brandy-like quality. It lives up to the claim of "tremendously complex flavors" although I think it's the aroma that is most complex.Read Full Review
Flavor is bold, slightl...

First off I can say that the dry leaves have a very rich aroma, a blend of char and sweet fruit, it reminds me of peaches and plums cooked over a grill and allowed to get that really yummy char and caramelized sugar aroma. There is also a distant aroma of orchids and a touch of tobacco, the finish has a slightly yeast...Read Full Review

Nov. 19th, 2014
the aroma of the dried leaves is certainly a Yancha, I notice the tobacco and char notes that are so familiar, but they are much milder and joined by dried cherry and flowers, specifically hyacinths. Many rock oolongs are sweet, this one takes it too a whole new level, much like combining a Dan Cong and a Yancha for ul...Read Full Review

The aroma is richly roasted, as expected, with notes of char, roasted chestnuts, walnuts, pecans...this is a nutty tea! Finish that off with a distant orchid aroma and you have a very intense aroma, I do suggest sitting down if sniffing this tea.Read Full Review
That is a smooth start, smooth and rich, it begins with chestnuts and ...

Well this is my first ever Da Hong Pao, and I'm really excited to review it (but not as much as I was to taste it)!Read Full Review
I brewed about 1.5 spoons (because the leaves are long) in about 9 oz of water at 200 F for 4 min.
The color of the tea is beautiful reddish amber (Alex, I think a good feature would be uploading pi...

The aroma of the dry leaves is heady and very sweet, there are intense notes of orchid and orange blossom, this sweet flower nectar aroma also has a creamy quality and a hint of lychees and a tiny little blip of toasted sesame at the finish. I might have spent the entire time the tea kettle was heating up with my nose ...Read Full Review

Aug. 22nd, 2014
Has a hint of baked flavor and no real bitterness, but it's a pretty generic cup. At $3 for 20 bags, the price isn't bad. If you're not picky about tea this one is likely worth it, but it doesn't stand out in any particular way.Read Full Review

Aug. 12th, 2014
Huh, I know this is an oolong tea but to me it tastes like a lighter version of the darjeelings I've tried recently. The scent and taste is a little more floral in nature with a lightly baked undertone. It goes together very smoothly. Not a bad tea at all, but not as impressive to me as some others. I had to add more l...Read Full Review

There are notes of coal, honey, orchids, a tiny touch of cocoa, and a finish of yeasty bread. I absolutely love teas that have a smokey or empyreumatic (if you want to impress your friends) aroma, to me they are one of the most comforting aromas you can get.Read Full Review
The first steep puts me in a happy place, it is one of the...

Jul. 7th, 2014
I'm honestly not sure whether or not I'm tasting the "milky" quality intended, but silky and smooth are quite accurate. I would also say it has a soothing, muted, simple flavor. I've only tried a few straight oolongs and not been a big fan of them, but this one tastes quite comforting. It'd made a very nice everyday dr...Read Full Review
