90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 29th, 2014

The aroma, well, often I find myself going ga-ga over the roasted oolongs, but wow, when I have a dance with a Gao Shan I wonder, why did I ever get seduced by roasted tea? It is so sweet and so very floral, like a bouquet of honeysuckles, hyacinth, orchids, and lilies, it is intensely floral and at the same time very ...

The dry tea smells lightly roasty and floral. While brewing, I can pick up some fruity aromas, like grape.

The flavor of the brewed tea is smooth and roasty. It has a subtle spinach flavor. I don't really taste any of the floral or fruity notes from the aroma, but that's ok, because I still really like this one...

May. 3rd, 2014

This tea is gorgeous. I'm a little bit in love, with a tea. I'm resisting the urge to write: "on nom nom" as the entire review, because that's probably not very helpful.

The dry tea smells like green tea, but after steeping, it smells like sweet flowers, with a little bit of berry. It smells like summer!

This ...

Da Yu Ling Oolong Tea from Yezi Tea

Style: High Mountain Oolong – Region: Taichung, Taiwan

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

Very sweet and yeasty, like freshly baking bread. There is also the intoxicating scent of honey and orchids with a small afterthought of allspice. Here is where it gets weird, the aroma reminds me of the smell of Amanita bisporigera aka Destroying Angel, the world's most toxic mushroom, and that is awesome. How is that...

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 8th, 2014

The aroma is spectacular. It is very rich, blending heady orchids and honeysuckle nectar with roasted chestnut and a hint of spinach. At the finish there is a slight sweet bread quality, specifically fresh yeasty bread drizzled with honey.

The Teavivre website recommends eight steeps for this tea, and I got eight st...

I thought this tea was great. I could rave about it, but will settle for saying I loved the hint of flowers in the smell and the hearty vegetable soup taste it left in my mouth... practically a meal in itself. Now I just need to know, where can I buy some? Sign me up, I'm there!

PS I agree with Alex, definitely n...

My first time sampling Da Yu Ling, this was unexpectedly complex and interesting. It had a gingerbread and molasses quality that I've never before encountered in an oolong.

Dry leaf has a strong floral fragrance, similar to other green oolongs from Taiwan. Upon brewing though, this tea becomes much more interestin...

Nov. 19th, 2013

This tea was top-notch and was definitely the strongest of the Taiwanese oolongs I've tried yet from TeaVivre, both in aroma and flavor. Very bold flavor, yet while having a clear liquor, smooth mouthfeel, and refined floral fragrance, without any off qualities.

Dry leaf is tightly rolled and looks dark green with ...
