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...

Huang Jin Gui or Golden Osmanthus is one of my favorite types of oolong.

I only had the opportunity to sample this once, briefly, at World Tea East, so I can't comment on experimenting with brewing it in different ways, but I thought it a typical and high-quality example of this type of oolong.

Aroma is predomina...

Served Gong Fu style by Evan. Golden-green dry leaf is pleasingly aromatic.

I liked this tea very much. Predominately floral aroma, yet bold and complex, with skunky (which I liked) and herbaceous undertones. There's a faint soapy quality evident in each infusion, but it did not detract from the overall experienc...

Golden Osmanthus Oolong (Huang Jin Gui) traditional style from Life in Teacup

Style: Golden Osmanthus – Region: Anxi, Fujian, China

I am still feeling my way with Oolongs, so I followed Directions and brewed this at about 205 for about 2 minutes. There was a light flowery scent that flowed right into a soft flowery taste, that just skims over your tongue. I want to experiment with different times and temps to see how that might change.

Huang Jin Gui Winter Harvest from Life in Teacup

Style: Golden Osmanthus – Region: Anxi, Fujian, China

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 20th, 2010

After being really impressed by Life in Teacup's Huang Jin Gui traditional style, this one was a disappointment. I experimented a little bit with brewing, but, regardless of how I brewed, compared to that other tea, the aroma of this one is weaker and less pleasant overall.

I also find this tea to have less depth. ...

Mostly floral fragrance. This is the first huang jin gui I've tried, and it really does resemble osmanthus flowers in aroma, but I find it has a very different overall character from osmanthus-scented tea. Also, unusual among light, aromatic, greener oolongs I've had. This tea has some interesting surprises.
