Ancient Forest Black from Zhi Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Vietnam

84 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 2nd, 2019

This was among the most interesting teas I've tried in a long time, both aromatically and with respect to mouthfeel. It was the first pure tea I've tried from Zhi, and it may be the first tea from this company to wow me. It had an unusual character somewhere in between that of a black tea and a Pu-erh, but not like rip...

Vietnam Ha Giang Black from Simpson & Vail

Style: Black Tea – Region: Ha Giang

A very pleasant tea that was easy to steep and easy to appreciate. Like a good Yunnan tea but a little smoother.

Thank you to Simpson & Vail for the sample!

Dry leaf smells really beautiful and kind of fascinating: malty but with strong vegetal notes. It looks and smells a lot like a Yunnan tea, which makes sense...

I love this tea. It caught my eye because I'd never had Vietnamese tea before. It turned out to taste amazing. The price is quite decent, too.
I use half a teaspoonful of leaves per cup. It's a bit smokey, but not the way smoked teas are, a little sweet, a little spicy. The best word I can come up with to describe it ...

Vietnamese Black OP from Harney and Sons

Style: Black Tea – Region: Vietnam

A medium-bodied tea with nutty and chocolatey aromas, I can see this being likely to please people who enjoy hot chocolate.

The dry leaf has a strong smell of sweet nutty candy, like marzipan, pistacio, milk chocolat, or hazelnut creme. It reminds me of those Mozartkugeln, the German candies with layers of hazelnut...

Vietnam Yen Bai OP Organic from TeaGschwendner

Style: Black Tea – Region: Vietnam

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Oct. 22nd, 2014

Purchased in the TeaGschwender shop in Regensburg, Germany.

Dry leaf is not very aromatic; it faintly suggests cocoa.

Brews up a very typical cup. I used TeaGschwendner's recommendation of 4 minutes, but used less leaf than they recommend, and this produced results that I liked. I was able to make a second stee...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 7th, 2013

Another fascinating tea from Arbor Teas, very different from anything else I've tried yet.

The dry leaf has an interesting appearance, with thick leaves that curve around in heterogeneous shapes. The leaf also has a very pungent and pleasing aroma, suggesting of herbs.

Brews a rich-smelling, dark cup. Tones of ...

I love this tea. It has a kind of roasty aroma, and a nice crisp flavor. I steeped it for 7 minutes because I like my tea strong, and it's not too bitter at all. I added cream and sugar.

Vietnam Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Black Tea – Region: Vietnam

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 5th, 2012

Dry leaf has a mild, but very pleasing aroma, surprisingly suggestive of sweetness.

The brewed cup has a lighter golden color, than one would expect from the dark color of the leaf. Flavor is smooth, with a honey-like sweetness, a pleasing crispness, and minimal astringency. Full-bodied yet with a cooling quality....

This tea really surprised me!
The mix of fruity and malty aspects really pulled it together.
Dark chocolate, rose, black currant, vanilla, wheat, oak and cocoa are just a few of the descriptors I used!

Nov. 2nd, 2010

This is not an exceptional tea, but it is very pleasant and gentle. There are hints of malt and nuts, with a breath of spiciness and a little ping of citrus. I could easily see blending this with other black teas, especially one that had too much flavoring added or one you wanted to stretch out.

Jan. 28th, 2010

A pleasantly mellow tea, unlike anything else I've tried before. Definitely noticeable as a Vietnamese tea; it's interesting how both their black and green teas share certain characteristics in common.

Very smooth, little bitterness, even when steeped for a long time. I find a hint of lemon in the aroma, which is ...
