China Black Organic (Yunnan) Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Yunnan, China

45 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 10th, 2022

Mild all around. Aroma is a weak Yunnan. Flavor is a mediocre Yunnan, with a slight burnt after taste. Liquor brews (5min) to a deep brown. Not impressed.

Mar. 17th, 2022

I recently ordered some tea and bulk herbs from iherb.com. This Numi pu erh brick was novel enough that I couldn't pass it up. I'll say up front that I'm not a huge fan of shou pu erh, but I've tried enough varieties at varying price points and even found some that I enjoy that I should at least be able to tell what I'...

Dec. 14th, 2021

Here is a nice Yunnan. The aroma is fresh and woodsy, like taking an April walk in a park. The flavor is smooth and mild, with a little bit of astringency on the palate. It is well worth the modest price.

"Yu Luo" High Mountain Pure Bud Green Tea from Yunnan Sourcing

Nov. 7th, 2021

Thanks Dewey for sharing this with me! This was a smooth, mellow, mild green tea that was easy to brew and enjoy.

The leaf of this smells very fresh, a sort of sweet fragrance, almost floral, typical of high-quality, tippy Chinese green teas. It's pleasant but also hard to anticipate how it is going to taste, so I w...

Nov. 4th, 2021

This tea is really good! It’s aromatic and bready smelling which I like. The taste is really smooth and it has a complex flavor with slight bitterness but in a good way! This is a really enjoyable tea!

Oct. 30th, 2021

This tea is pretty smooth and easy to drink, however it is a bit boring and doesn’t have a super strong aroma. I’m still giving it a highish score just because it is a comforting tea to drink and it doesn’t have any outwardly negative qualities like being too harsh or astringent.

This tea is so good!! It smells nice and has a good flavor but with none of the harshness or bitterness that tea sometimes has. It’s really smooth and bready but still interesting and fragrant

This tea is really good! It has a bready and raisiny aroma it tastes very smooth and somewhat chocolaty. My one complaint is that it’s very slightly astringent in the aftertaste.

Sep. 23rd, 2021

I found this a pleasant tea to drink but it was not among my favorites. It was surprisingly different from its organic counterpart. Of the two, I strongly preferred this one.

The leaf is tightly rolled and quite beautiful. Compared to the organic version of this tea, it looks a little paler in color and slightly loo...

Sep. 10th, 2021

This tea was quite singular, unlike most of the other teas from Yunnan Sourcing. I thought it was a good tea but it was a bit too much for me. It's strong, both by flavor and caffeine. I am reviewing the Spring Harvest from 2020.

This tea took up a lot less space than most all the other Yunnan Teas I've tried. The d...

Sep. 7th, 2021

This was a straightforward tea that I found easy to like; I became a fan from the first sip. It's robust, easy to brew, easy to drink, and pleasing in both flavor and aroma. Overall, it is more flavorful than aromatic though.

The dry leaf is beautiful, a very bright yellow color, not as orangeish as many of these ti...

Sep. 5th, 2021

This was a really enjoyable tea that also had a lot of depth and complexity.

The dry leaf is made exclusively of luscious, thick, fuzzy buds that are kinda rolled on themselves; the picture does not really do it justice. Although it seems to be pure buds, they look a bit more mature than on some tippy teas, and they...

This was a robust green tea that was challenging to brew, but rewarding when I got it right. Thank you to Dewey for sharing this one with me!

The leaf is beautiful, wiry, slightly curly, and diverse in color, from dusty dark green to silvery-gray with a yellowish tinge. It has a potent fragrance, with a hint of camp...

May. 25th, 2021

A mellow and balanced, easy-to-brew tea that had a lot of aromatic complexity, and an overall character somewhat intermediate between large-leaf Assam and Yunnan teas.

The dry leaf, which looks a little darker than in the picture from Yunnan Sourcing's website, has a wiry and kinda dusty appearance, and consists of ...

May. 21st, 2021

I found this to be a subdued, but intriguing tea that seemed to have a lot of depth and complexity. Although it doesn't jump out at me, I found that it seemed a little different each time I drank it.

It's also another tea that in many respects resembles some of the large-leaf Assam teas (not just Assamica cultivar, ...

This is a wonderful thick bodied tea! It has sort of a milk cocoa smell and it tastes a bit chocolatey as well. It has a mild sweet taste and it’s just really amazing! It is so smooth and not astringent or bitter at all

I thought this was an exceptional tea, but one not particularly suited to my tastes. I still liked it a lot though. It tastes the most like a white tea of any black tea I've tried.

The dry leaf is explosively fragrant, suggesting malt, caraway, overripe fruit, and flowers. There is a lot going on in the aroma, it's ...

Apr. 10th, 2021

This was a peculiar and rather fascinating tea, a real bargain buy, and a good afternoon tea.

The leaf is very large and has an aroma that is lightly malty, but also rather herbaceous. It smells more like green teas or raw Pu-erh than is typical for a black tea. Both its appearance and aroma remind me of some of the...

I ordered two of these in 2018 as it sounded from the description as the sort of thing I would like. I broke off a tiny piece initially, and as I expected it was a bit strong for my taste. I was surprised though at how quickly this one mellowed out.

Now, about 5 years from harvest, I broke off a bit again and it's s...

This is only the second Moonlight White tea I've ever tried; the first was from Life in Teacup. I've had this tea for nearly two years from its harvest date, but am only reviewing it now, so I've seen how it ages slightly. It seemed to change character much more quickly than a pu-erh.

The leaf is striking and unique...
