Ooooh Darjeeling from Adagio Teas

Style: Darjeeling Oolong – Region: Darjeeling, India

65 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jul. 23rd, 2017

A lifelong fan of traditional black Darjeelings, I was intrigued by the idea of a Darjeeling oolong. Directions called for steeping 2 heaping teaspoons per cup, 212F/100C, 3-4 minutes. I went with 4 level teaspoons (3 grams) per 8 fluid ounces, 212F/100C, 4 minutes. I liked the fruity-floral flavor and expect that fans...

Organic Oolong Tea from Wei-Chuan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 22nd, 2017

The oversized teabags are individually sealed in mylar and smell fresh when opened. The dry tea leaves are a little more broken than I would expect from high-quality tea. The dominant aroma is of the roast and is nice, but generic.

The roast is also the dominant flavor as is normal for darker oolongs, but I am pleas...

Ya Shi Xiang Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: Guangdong, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 17th, 2017

The dry leaves look brown and have a lightly roasted scent with notes of sweetness and flowers. This is a bit deceptive because after rinsing, the leaves are a very deep green and don't appear so roasted anymore.

The tea has roasted notes, sweet and floral notes which are reminiscent of gardenia but are sweeter and ...

78 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 16th, 2017

To me, this tasted a lot like the FooJoy Tung Ting oolong, but with notes of milk, cream, and at times, almost a custard, that came and went. The floral notes were very similar, like gardenia. I did enjoy those milky notes, but they didn't stick around long. They were present for the first steeping, but were largely in...

Four Seasons from De Theefabriek

Style: Four Seasons Oolong – Region: Vietnam

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 10th, 2017

I wanted to try this tea because De Theefabriek's other Vietnamese teas have been absolutely amazing.

The dry tea doesn't have a very strong aroma, but it's very sweet and almost reminds of of some candy mix.
Both the aroma and the flavour of the tea remind me of Het Gouden Randje's Formosa Jade Oolong. I'm still s...

95 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 10th, 2017

The scent of this is subtle, but the flavor is really wonderful. It's a lot like gardenias with hints of fruitiness and it sticks around in the mouth for a while. It's a very pleasing flavor and the floral aspect of it is deeper and more grounded than some of the lighter flowery flavors out there that can feel like the...

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.

This was my first time trying a Tie Guan Yin, so I chose the one that best fit my budget.
The liqueur is yellow. It has a nutty and woo...

Jun. 25th, 2017

I bought this tea before and remember it as lovely and flowery, but when I bought more of it later, it just... wasn't so great.
It looks nice with the tightly rolled balls of leaves. It's got a kind of metallic taste that I find a bit unpleasant. That could be the jasmine-like taste that the product description mentio...

Jun. 22nd, 2017

This was my favorite oolong that I have sampled in a long time. After being let down by several oolongs from Harney & Sons, this one hit the spot.

The leaf, which is quite wiry, smells amazing and multifaceted: floral, fruity, toasty, spicy. There's a skunky note and a pleasant bready, baked-good quality. It seem...

This light tea has a very unique flavor. It tastes very warm and toasty but is to hard to describe. The teas color is a very satisfying golden-yellow color and smells lovely. I definetly reccomend this great tea to anyone who wants to try something new! For all you know, it could be your new favorite flavor!

May. 28th, 2017

The dry leaf has an interesting shape, loosely curly, less long and wiry than most Wuyi oolong. It's intensely aromatic, smelling like roast and fruit; the fruitiness is quite astounding, it's maybe a little like dried peaches or apricots.

The brewed cup is very roasty, with notes of wood and hints of coffee. It's...

May. 25th, 2017

It's kind of strange that I've had so many Dan Cong oolongs in my life, but no oolong from Wuyishan. I guess that's because of my Chaozhou background. Given the fame of Dahongpao, I guess it's about time to try it out!

According to the vendor it's a 'banyan' type, meaning it's harvested near the scenic area of Wuyis...

Overall this was more run-of-the-mill than I expected for such a high-end tea. My favorite thing about it was the smell of the dry leaf, the actual cup was good, but not as interesting.

The dry leaf smells incredibly beautiful...multifaceted too, lightly roasty, very fruity, like baked goods, suggesting sweetness, ...

This is a 2nd generation Mi-Lan varietal Dancong from the Phoenix Mountains (Fenghuang Shan) in Guangdong Province. I've heard amazing things about this type of Oolong and I must say, it does not disappoint. It tastes extremely elegant and well crafted. It is rather smooth and leaves a coating around your mouth along w...

Mar. 15th, 2017

I really enjoy this tea. It's one of my favorites from teakruthi so far. The flavor is pleasant in a soothing yet slightly buttery way. Eating food seems to bring out additional flavors not in either the food or tea alone, so this one is great on its own or with meals. I didn't add any sugar or milk to it. The curled l...

I've reviewed over a hundred oolongs, and tried several oolongs from "unusual" places, i.e. countries that are not known for making oolong, including India, Kenya, Japan, and Nepal, but this is the first one I've tried from Sri Lanka.

It was very strange, and I'm glad I tried it, but it's the sort of tea I would hav...

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...

Jan. 14th, 2017

I think this is a good example of Tie Guan Yin. This one is definitely of the greener, less oxidized and less roasted variety.

The dry leaf aroma is very pleasant and "green".
When brewed the aroma is very fresh veggie-like, with notes of butter, and floral as well. Not intensely floral, but it's there.
This is...

The reviews as well as the very low price intrigued me enough to buy a large order of this tea.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect as, while mostly positive, the reviews describe a wide range of flavors.

The rolled, snail-like leaf smells toasty. For some reason I expected a much greener aroma.

I loaded up 5 gr...

This one is actually currently available.
I ordered 2 15g samples about a month ago. The fact I still have some left is a clue as to what I think about it :)

I admit to buying this because it's a unique brick oolong. I also figured that given the high price it should be good.
I've since learned that price is not...

My first "milky" oolong. Hmmm...
The aroma of the dry, dark, greenish-brown balls is overpoweringly sweet. I was shocked at how much it smells like caramel popcorn, with a creamy milk-like background. Quite bizarre, and smells more like something I'd eat rather than drink.

There's a lot of controversy with Milk ...

One of the 3 or 4 high mountain Taiwan oolongs that Music City offers. The company pretty much uses the same description for each of them, so I think a little more detail would be nice.
I usually get my green oolongs from Upton, but am always on the lookout for light oolongs from other companies so gave this one a ...

Yet another tea from this company that I've been ordering lately. Originally, I received a free sample of their Big Red Robe along with a few gaiwans I ordered from them. Since then I've been buying this tea regularly.

As I understand it, this is one of the "house teas" that comes from the owner's tea farming vil...

I am still fairly new to oolongs. Wow there is such variety, hard to pronounce names, entire worlds of flavor and aroma...I doubt I could explore them all in one lifetime :)

I had never heard of Gui Fei oolong. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information about this oolong, unless it's perhaps known by other name...

At first I didn't like this tea. The aroma was delicious honey, but I found the bitter earthiness in the flavor a bit off putting.

However, I tried it again the next day and used a smaller amount of tea...about 5 grams brewed in a 4 ounce gaiwan. I got 7 infusions.
This time the honey came out more in the flav...
