Jan. 18th, 2017

What a steal! Where I live (Ohio), it sometimes difficult to find nice Tea in an actual store but every now and then you get lucky. I picked this up at a local International Market not expecting much out of it as the price was very cheap (100 grams for $7.99). I've not had much luck with similar purchases in the past i...

Rui Feng Jin Xuan from Tea From Taiwan

Style: Milky Oolong – Region: Chiayi (County), Taiwan

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 5th, 2014

The dry leaf aroma smells very much like powdered milk to me. Once brewing begins, I can smell the creamy aroma, and definite hints of jasmine.

The flavor is sweet, but a little too faint at first. I try longer steepings, and I can detect a very light buttery flavor. I was hoping for more milky flavor in the brewed ...

Tai Xing Jin Xuan from Tea From Taiwan

Style: Milky Oolong – Region: Chiayi (County), Taiwan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 5th, 2014

I purchased the Spring 2014 batch in a sample pack. The tea has a lovely flavor and has a creamy feel, but I didn’t get the milky flavor I was hoping for. To be fair, I did eat recently, so I am going to brew this again and see what I come up with. I liked this tea, but I am hoping a second try will give me the chanc...

Li Shan Oolong Tea from Yezi Tea

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Chiayi (County), Taiwan

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 12th, 2014

The main floral aroma is honeysuckles, not so much the heady summery aroma of honeysuckles but the late spring early bloom where the flowers are just starting to open their petals. Hiding beneath the freshly blooming honeysuckles are notes of sweet honey and a touch of rose.

I was able to get four steeps using West...

I thought this tea was very good for its price! It was smooth and reminded me a little of chicken soup (odd, I know, but it had a comforting quality!) I'll definitely be having this tea again! :)

Formosa Alishan Oolong from auraTeas

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Chiayi (County), Taiwan

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 7th, 2011

The scent of the dry leaves is of good green earth. They are very compressed. As they brew a green vegetal scent arises with a sharp, pleasant aroma of pineapple. The medium amber liquor tastes about the same, vegetal, pineapple, with a whiff of floral. The second infusion sadly loses the pineapple, as the floral o...

Now and then I buy tea loose-leaf tea in Chinatown, Asian import stores, and other specialty food stores, and I am often disappointed. However, this one was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting much: I bought 100 grams of this Alishan Oolong for $7, which seemed extraordinarily cheap. I've had better Alishan Oolo...

Nov. 3rd, 2010

The initial dry smell is sublime - floral, orchid, just wonderful. It diminishes over 3 infusions, but never quite leaves.
1. 1.5 min.very floral with a veggie edge. Buttery smooth, thick and full.
2. 2 min.more vegetal, with the floral coming out as it cools. Not a green , grassy vegetal, more along a buttery squ...
