Huo Shan Huang Ya Yellow Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Huangya – Region: Anhui, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 17th, 2017

I could taste the quality in this tea. It had an even, rounded, smooth flavor. It was sweet and consistent with notes of sweet corn and sweet peas. It had a richness to it as well. I tasted no bitterness and I don't recall much of any astringency, even after brewing it several times. I enjoyed it, but these flavors are...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 17th, 2017

I was very surprised by the flavor of this tea. It reminds me of yellow tea in that it has a sweet flavor like corn and sweet peas. But, at the same time, it also has citrus notes — mostly lime, but some traces of lemon. I found it very refreshing. There was no bitterness and little to no astringency, even after seve...

Keemun Full Leaf Tea from Foojoy

90 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 16th, 2017

For such a cheap tea it's really good, it's very aromatic and flavorful. It's very interesting and has a lot of character. The smell is kind of a weird burnt smokey smell which I actually really enjoy, and the taste is consistent with that smell. The taste is very smokey and warm and thick so it's a very comforting tea...

Huang Da Cha from Unami

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 1st, 2017

I drank this tea in the Unami Maison de Thé in Lille. It was served prepared in a small teapot. This means it was made exactly as it should, though I didn't get to see any leaves.

My first impression was an intensely nutty and earthy aroma. The flavour is nutty too, but not as strong as expensive. It reminds me of ...

Qimen Black Tea from Starway

Style: Keemun – Region: Qimen, Anhui, China

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 5th, 2017

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.

The dried leaves are quite pungent and smell strongly of raisins. As the tea steeps, the aroma is of earth, oak leave...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 19th, 2017

Less than $6 for 2 ounces?...I couldn't resist :)
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 ...

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...

91 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 12th, 2016

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.

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...

Jan. 6th, 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed this tea, all the way from the beautiful tea leaves to the aftertaste. I wanted to try Tai Ping Hou Kui due to its intriguing leaf shape. It is definitely something different, unique, and extremely interesting. I fully enjoyed watching the leaves steep as the softened into long leaves.

Keemun Panda #1 Tea from Metropolitan Tea Company

Style: Keemun – Region: Anhui, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 18th, 2015

Served at Notting Hill coffee shop in Lewes, DE.

Very aromatic loose leaf, slightly smoky, typical for a Keemun of good quality.

Brews a rich, mellow cup with a rounded character and strong warming quality. Probably not the best tea for a hot summer day like today, but I was in the mood for it and it was excellen...

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 20th, 2015

The aroma of the leaves is a delicate blend of green beans and sesame seeds with a touch of spicebush flowers and hyacinth. There is also a tiny hint of chestnut at the finish, the aroma notes are not the strongest, but they are pleasant in their delicateness.

The taste is refreshing, it starts with a blend of melo...

1400m Huang Shan Mao Feng from Life in Teacup

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Anhui, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 14th, 2014

Brewed tea in 9-10oz of water at 200F for 3 min first steep.

It had a nutty scent kind of like long jin (dragonwell). I could tell from the scent of the liquor and the wet leaves that this would be a top-quality tea.

The flavor is actually somewhat simple, but very pure. I get nuttiness/toastyness akin to the sce...

Sep. 4th, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaves is quite sweet, there are notes of lightly roasted sweet corn, gently roasted sesame seeds, bamboo leaves, and a tiny hint of tomato leaves. At the finish of the sniff there is a hint of smoke. It is odd, every yellow tea I have had has had that tiny hint of smoke at the finish, I find that ...

Sep. 3rd, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaf is very fresh smelling, blending notes of roasted sesame and peanuts with green bean and spinach. There is a tiny hint of sauteed mushrooms at the finish, giving the tea a hint of savory.

The first steep's mouthfeel is quite smooth, it was the first thing I noticed, after my initial enjoyme...

Aug. 30th, 2014

Tried this one while on the go using a travel tea mug. I'll have to give it a proper tasting later, at home, but so far I'm pleasantly surprised! More subdued than most black teas, and not bitter at all (though I also made a point to steep it briefly).

Update: Okay, I got to try this again at work. It's definitely a...

Jul. 8th, 2014

Very interesting tea. It has a robust flavor that's hard to pin down in words. The dominant flavor is one that's savory and fruity at the same time. Perhaps akin to the flavor of sourdough bread? It tastes almost like a black tea, but without the bitterness that causes me to dislike most black teas. Of the tea I've tri...

Jun. 23rd, 2014

The aroma is quite vegetal and also quite nutty, with note of green beans, spinach, chestnut, sweet sesame seed paste (Halva for those who enjoy Middle Eastern desserts) and a very delicate finish of toast. It manages to be sweet and vegetal without the clashing, in fact sniffing this tea makes me a bit hungry.

The aroma is sweet, a blend of delicate cherry and a delicate floral and fresh vegetation. Sniffing this tea reminds me of the aroma of spring rain and refreshing cool air, it is very evocative and delicate.

The first thing that strikes me after my first sip of the first steep is how refreshing it is, I feel revita...

Apr. 7th, 2014

A mix of strong vegetal (I would say green bean and a hint of spinach) and sesame seeds. There is a finish of yeasty bread and cherries.

The beginning of the taste is sweet, gently sweet like honeysuckle nectar and sesame seeds. It reminds me a of the aftertaste you get when eating sesame Halva but with a vegetal qu...

Opened a fresh package of this wonderful loose leaf blend, and enjoyed the fresh aroma of the dry leaves: earthy, slightly smoky and a light honey scent as well. Just over three minutes as a steep with boiling water. Beautiful color and a malty aroma begins to develop.

I am not sure I would classify this as a tradit...

I was impressed with this tea; it made a good cup to enjoy on my work break. I thought it had a subdued flavor compared to other English Breakfasts, and it didn't leave a bitter aftertaste.

This tea is pretty good, but it has a slight vegetal flavor that I don't like. It tastes a little green. I added cream and sugar.

Initially sampled at the Philadelphia Coffee and Tea Festival, but I'm glad I sampled this on my own because I liked it even more when I brewed it myself. An unusual Keemun with both cooling and warming qualities. Strong enough to be a breakfast tea, but stands out among both other English Breakfasts and other Keemun...
