Emerald Green from The Tao of Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 19th, 2017

Also known as "San Bei Xiang" or "Three Cups" because of the different fragrances this tea provides with each infusion. I'm a little confused about the origin because the website says it is from Ningde in Fujian province but the tin I bought says it is from Zhejiang province. Perhaps Tao of Tea switched locations it ...

Black Fairy from Music City Tea

Jan. 25th, 2017

In my latest black tea frenzy, I decided to give this one a try since it seems pretty unique.
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.
I've...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 23rd, 2017

This tea exhibits a pure, delicate flavor -- essentially what every white tea is described as by the company that sells it. It has no bitterness and a smooth flavor. When in the mood for a straightforward, pure tea that isn't grassy, this is a nice choice.

To prepare this tea, I used the Chinese method I was shown a...

83 / 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.

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.
This is...

Jan. 9th, 2017

I tried this together with Upton's ZW42. I actually liked this one a lot, and not the other.

Brews up a dark, full-bodied cup that, like the other compressed white tea cake, is rather bitter. I find the bitterness more blunt though, whereas ZW42 has a sharp bitterness.

The aroma is strange and hard to describe....

Jan. 3rd, 2017

This one is actually currently available.
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.

As I understand it, this is one of the "house teas" that comes from the owner's tea farming vil...

Dec. 19th, 2016

So ever since a local shop stopped carrying my favorite teas I haven't really purchased much black tea lately.
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 ...

Oct. 20th, 2016

This tea came from an estate sale (good places to find teas you haven't tried before, really cheap!), in its originally wrapped box.

You know, it's pathetic what some of these highly paid marketing consultants can concoct. I reviewed a loose-leaf Basilur floral tea whose packaging blatantly pandered to romantical...

Sep. 7th, 2016

My first tasting of this tea was in my gaiwan with about 3 grams of tea and 2 grams of tangerine peel. I did a 5 second rinse then 3 infusions. The aroma was sweet and citrusy to begin with. The taste was light, oily, buttery, and smooth with slight orange/tangerine flavors. The second and third infusions became sweete...

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...

Aug. 12th, 2016

If you like white teas (so pale - must steep longer.) this is a safe choice and has not only a light grassy note but I got "flowers" - or maybe even honey if that's not reaching too far.

I let it steep forever - over 5 minutes and it was still so pale, but it is, after all, a white tea.

Rich in antioxidants. Lik...

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...

Jun. 13th, 2016

This was the most disappointing pure tea I've ever tried from Harney & Sons.

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

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.

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.

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...

Truly superb! I haven't tried that many Golden Monkey teas, but after brewing this one multiple times, I think it is my favorite. Its leaf is packed with flavor and, although it had the smoothness of other golden monkey teas, I found it had a strength that was lacking from other examples of this style that I had tried...

I love to brew up pearled teas - and jasmine pearls ROCK for me - so I liked this one. Fun to watch the pearls unfurl when you brew them. Delicious jasmine/green/floral notes. Fun to drink and requires no sweetener.

Nov. 9th, 2015

This is a great tea for most people. Green tea can be more of an acquired taste and red(black) tea can be heavy on the tannins, but this white peony is right in the middle of tea flavors. Both the smell and the taste are more floral than other teas, so beware if you decide to steep it extra strong. You can steep the te...

I love Shang tea. It's probably the best tea shop that you can buy from in the Midwest. This particular tea though- is for a very particular kind of person. It has an incredibly potent and bitter taste to it if you steep it like a normal tea. You have to make sure and use boiling water, extra amounts of the tea, and on...

This is one of my very favorite teas. This tea is incredible and probably my most ordered from Shang tea in general. The tea has a decent aroma, but where it truly shines is its flavor. Cold, hot, splash of milk and cinnamon, you can't go wrong with this tea. I almost forgot to mention, steep this tea at LEAST 3 times ...

I should preface this by saying that I do not particularly enjoy black tea in general. Usually I drink white and green tea. That being said, I do enjoy this once in a while. The aroma is mild and somewhat nutty. The flavor is full and very smooth with almost no astringency. There are also undertones of nuts (perhaps ha...

Very nice tea. I enjoy white teas, especially silver needle, but that can be expensive for daily consumption. This tea, on the other hand, is more affordable and has that distinctly white tea taste. It is not as sweet or smooth as silver needle, but it is nevertheless very light, delicate, and simple.

I prepared 5g ...
