This tea has a beautiful jasmine smell and taste. You have to really love jasmine to like this tea; as the other reviewer mentioned, the jasmine aroma and taste is very overpowering, even with minimal steep time. I really enjoy this tea. It reminds me a great deal of Republic of Tea’s Twilight Rose, which is a chamom...

Classic Bai Lin Gong Fu "Golden Monkey" Black tea of Fuding from Yunnan Sourcing

Jan. 21st, 2020

Ordered a Fujiian Black Tea sampler pack from Yunnan Sourcing and this was my second favorite. Nice and light with a good 2-3 re-steeps coming out of it. The rest of the sampler were richer more malty and coffee like tea's while this one was the lightest. Not a roasted or rich flavor but something easy to drink. Has a ...

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...

Lapsang Souchong Smoky Black Tea from TeaVivre

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,...

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...

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...

Jun. 5th, 2019

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...

I had one called China Panyang Congou from Upton, which is also currently unavailable. I'm guessing this is the same thing. It is very enjoyable and tastes different from most of the teas I can think of. There is a pronounced barley/pumpernickel flavor. I've been brewing beer lately and this reminded me of the taste...

Mar. 13th, 2019

This is a very slightly above-average, but not outstanding, bagged green tea available at a price that's hard to top for a non-store brand (about $8 for a 100-count box online, or at stores such as Wal-Mart). Fortunately, I procured a fairly new, sealed 100-ct box at an estate sale for a buck, so *my* value was unrepr...

The aroma has a mild earthiness. The liquor is a light amber color. Mild taste that would be overwhelmed by milk or sugar.

Oct. 9th, 2018

I'm not sure what I was expecting from this tea, but it isn't what I expected. I did expect a floral aroma, and I got one. It smells like jasmine, but not JUST jasmine. It almost seems like a jasmine/dandelion blend to me. Similarly, the flavor isn't a true jasmine, and certainly isn't what I expect from a green tea. I...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 18th, 2018

The dark chocolaty, floral aroma of the dry leaves is honestly the best thing about this tea. I spent a lot of time trying to get it to taste like it smells. I can get close with a lower temperature and the right brewing time, but it's never exact. Most of the time, the taste is slightly fruity and a little less roasty...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 18th, 2018

This is a very basic Wuyi oolong, with the deep, roasty flavor you'd expect. There's a caramel sweetness and the aroma has a bit of tobacco. I compared this to Teavivre's Da Hong Pao, and while the Teavivre DHP had a slight fruity note that was lacking here, I thought this compared pretty well otherwise. For $2, it's n...

Sep. 18th, 2018

Decent dark roast oolong, but nothing special. It had a nutty, caramel flavor that reminded me of Brazilian coffee. Considering it was only $2/ounce, I'd buy some again if I was in Chicago and low on oolongs, but it's not something I'd go out of my way for.

Jul. 16th, 2018

The tea that I got is packaged in individual packets, each containing six grams (about three US tea bags worth) of relatively large, but broken pieces of tea leaf. It doesn't smell as strongly as most roasted oolongs, but it also doesn't smell overly roasted as inexpensive oolongs often do. Adding water brings out a bi...

Jun. 15th, 2018

I've had this for a few weeks now, but I've put off this review because this is my first pure white tea. The leaves were picked in April of 2016, making the tea a little over two years old as of this review. It has a gentle yet complex aroma of autumn leaves, vanilla, cinnamon, old books, and hints of flowers and spice...

Jun. 11th, 2018

I wrote a review of this before, but I accidentally deleted it while trying to edit it. Now that I've had a few better examples of Tieguanyin, I don't think this is as good as I initially thought. It's fairly mediocre, actually, with little to distinguish it from other oolongs on the lighter but not quite green end. Br...

Jun. 7th, 2018

This is a weird tea. The dry leaves smell like chocolate and flowers, but as soon as water is added it smells like baked potatoes. It takes a while to brew: I usually end up brewing it for 6-7 minutes the first time and even longer for the next two infusions for a total of three cups.

The flavor is somewhat unusual...

Jun. 6th, 2018

The aroma of the dry leaves is very floral, more so than any other Tieguanyin I've had, and the wet leaves are even more aromatic. I'm brewing this in my gaiwan, and after a quick rinse the first infusion is floral and vegetal, with a coolness in the finish that I usually find in Taiwanese oolongs. The second infusion ...

An amazing tea, somewhat soapy(probably due to steeping error), but the taste is excellent, and it smells amazing, but that is typical of a jasmine tea. This tea is very expensive, and I didn't see much improvement over other jasmine pearls.

I am a bit of a connoisseur of Lapsang Souchong. I have tried them from many different brands, and I think that the H&S offering of it is by far the best. The smokiness of it is beyond fantastic and I think that it's just amazing.

As a previous reviewer said, Lapsang Souchong isn't really a tea for everyone - it sme...
