Qimen Black Tea from Tea King of China (Starway)

Style: Keemun – Region: Qimen, Anhui, China

84 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 21st, 2021

Wonderful example of a Keemun tea! Keemun isn't my favorite type of tea which is why I rated it a bit lower but out of all the ones I've tried this one is my favorite. The aroma is nice and complex and the taste is smooth. The value is amazing too, its really cheap!

Feb. 4th, 2021

Really great tea! The aroma is fruity and floral and the taste is floral as well without tasting soapy at all. It is also very smooth and thick bodied with little astringency. Overall a very wonderful tea and I would buy it again.

Premium Qimen Black Tea of Huangshan from Yunnan Sourcing

Style: Keemun Mao Feng – Region: Huangshan, Anhui, China

85 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 28th, 2021

The aroma is just a classic bready black tea smell which is very nice however it lacks complexity and was very one-noted. The taste on the other hand was incredibly smooth and was one of the least astringent teas I've ever had (which is a good thing for me). The taste wasn't extremely complex but the flavors it did hav...

China Mao Feng Organic (No. 516) from TeaGschwendner

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

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 25th, 2020

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of leaves of green mao feng tea. Pours clear pale straw (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of green tea, mild but with notes of beans and fart - I guess I will never become a fan of the sc...

Dec. 22nd, 2020

I continue to branch out into black teas from provinces other than Yunnan, sold by Yunnan Sourcing. This was a pleasant surprise: an exceptionally smooth tea, easy to brew and easy to drink, among the sweetest Keemuns I've tried.

The dry leaf is very fine and curly, so much it is shaped more like Bi Luo Chun than li...

Nov. 22nd, 2020

One-litre pot at home, made from fine very dark brown and black leaves of organic Keemun. Pours nearly clear copper brown (against white china), with no sediment. Clear aroma of black tea leaves, with malty touches. Bitterish flavour of black tea, with leafy and malty notes and touches of smoke. Mildly bitter, leafy af...

Mar. 19th, 2019

A bit earthy for my taste. I prefer a lighter breakfast tea, but this is still well worth the brew, especially with milk and sugar.

Cui Ya from Unami

67 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 24th, 2018

The first time I made this tea, I didn't get much flavour out of it, so this time I used more leaves than I usually do for green tea - at least, I tried to. The leaves are large and twisted into irregular shapes, so it's not very dense. I think I could have used even more.
The liquor is rather light but it's a really ...

Prep – 4.1 grams in 18 ounces 175° F. water for 4 minutes. Added 2 ounces ice. No sugar. No milk.
Aroma – Slight (2/5)
Flavor – A very flavorful yellow tea (5/5), with a vegetal taste, but not a grassy taste like green teas.

May. 7th, 2018

I'm having a hard time rating this tea. It smelled pretty bad to me, like burnt pine. I guess that's the smokiness. The flavor was nicely earthy and slightly chocolaty with the occasional subtle fruit note. I enjoyed the flavor, but hated the aroma. I always knew it was done brewing and would taste the way I liked it w...

Jan. 4th, 2018

Based on my experiences with black gunpowder, I was not surprised that this doesn't taste like Mao Feng at all. It's more like other Chinese black teas I've had. It's got just a tiny little bit of sweetness but it's hardly there. It's pleasantly almost-bitter (but I did make it pretty strong).
Resteeps quite decently...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...
