I really like this tea! It is thick bodied and flavorful, although it is just slightly too astringent for me. For me personally oolongs are not my absolute favorite type, but I can tell this is a good one. It's very aromatically interesting and it has not gotten bad with age, this is another old tea from around 2017 th...

May. 29th, 2024

This tea is really great! The taste is very smooth, it's not too astringent or bitter. The aroma is very nice, it has a slight dank pu erh smell, which is interesting and I like it. The aroma is mild, most likely though because this tea I am tasting is old (2018) and was in my pantry for a while. For a tea that is not ...

I bought a box of 25 tea bags in an Asian grocery store. The bags are individually sealed in foil and filled with finely chopped pieces of tea. Upon opening the foil pouch, the tea smells recognizably as a roasted oolong.

The brewed tea is unremarkable, but it tastes quite nice. It has a mild bitterness that is bala...

This is a nice, mellow oolong, and comes in at a very attractive price. There is nothing attention-grabbing about it; it is just a good tea. The aroma hints at woodlands and hay, and the flavor offers more of the same, with a dash of minerally tannins and vegetal notes. It is fairly light on the palate, and goes dow...

This is a really great tea, it has a complex aroma and flavor. This type of tea is normally expensive but this one is cheaper yet the taste is perfect. And of course, as you all know my biggest issue with teas is ones that are too astringent, and this tea was not astringent at all so it's perfect!

Soothing Strawberry Oolong from Teavana

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: ?????

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 7th, 2020

Full transparency. This was a sealed tin from years ago. Since Teavana is no longer selling this, I’m not worried about skewing their sales numbers.

Aroma: This seems like a pretty oxidized oolong. A. It musty, earthy, and a touch vegetal. The strawberry is a note but very mild in the mix.

Flavor: Medium body...

Half-litre pot at home, made from fine rolled leaves of organic Oolong. Pours clear dark straw (against white china) without any sediment. Clear aroma of black tea, with notes of leaves and touches of nuts. Delicate, bitterish, leafy flavour with floral and nutty touches. Smooth palate, leaving only mild astringent tan...

This gets some good reviews on Upton's website and sells for an above average price, but it didn't do much for me. The aroma is pleasant enough, but the flavor is bland and weak. I can't recommend this one.

Jan. 2nd, 2020

A flavorful and complex oolong that is better than your average Chinese restaurant tea. This has a very nice garden/forest like aroma. The flavor is complex and leans toward the brighter, cleaner end of the oolong spectrum. The price is a little higher than I would expect for an everyday oolong, but it makes sense g...

Pinglin Bao Zhong Rincer Wulong Tea from Camellia Sinensis Tea House

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 21st, 2019

Wiry green leaves. Prepared 7.7 g in 18 oz boiled water; brewed for 4 min. Added 3.5 oz ice. Net 2.9 g per 8 oz. Nice flavor - like a green tea, but with extra flavor notes. The tea liquor was yellow with a slight orange tinge.
My Pratt Tea Dictionary says that Bao Zhong is a very lightly oxidized wulong.

This is a flavorful oolong. I tasted marzipan, chestnut, and some woody notes. It gets more flavorful as it cools, which leads me to think it would be good on ice. The price is a little high, but this is clearly a notch above the average Chinese restaurant oolong.

It has a lovely creamy taste, while also being nice and flowery. It has a very warm flavour, it's nice and sweet too. It's good for lots of steepings and has a bright yellowish green colour.

I'm sometimes afraid I won't be able to distinguish new light oolongs I buy from others that I already have, but this one is d...

This tea smells sort of roasted yet mild. It is smooth and not very astringent or bitter at all, which I love! The flavor is pretty mild though but maybe I could fix that if I steep it for longer. Overall this tea doesn’t wow me so much but it is still pretty nice and for how cheap it is it’s a really good option i...

Unfortunately, neither the packaging nor website offers any information about the source of this tea. The tea is a lightly fermented, rolled oolong with a light to medium roast.

The tea is rolled very tightly and is rather dense. The dry aroma is of toasted bread and hazelnuts.

I brewed this tea western-style for...

This tea has a woody smell. It tastes of of coffee, chocolate and smoke but not overpoweringly. It is a full bodied tea with a malty taste. I have also found the taste changes drastically with brewing time. Shorter brews do not seem to produce the coffee/chocolate taste as much. It is never bitter unless over stee...

79 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 18th, 2018

The name is accurate: it does smell like honey and flowers. Like Teavivre's Ya Shi Xiang and Da Wu Ye, it has a creamy mouthfeel and sweet, fruity taste. However, I'm not sure it's worth the price considering the cheaper Da Wu Ye from Teavivre or the cheaper and likely better Mi Lan Xiang from both Yunnan Sourcing and ...

Bright floral aroma, creamy mouthfeel. Later infusions have a note of peach with a mildly spicy finish. Pretty much a stereotypical Dancong. I'd recommend this to someone who has never tried one before. If you have, there's nothing new here, but I don't think there's really anything bad about it either unless you're us...

The dark chocolaty, floral aroma of the dry leaves is honestly the best thing about this tea. I spent a lot of time trying to get it to taste like it smells. I can get close with a lower temperature and the right brewing time, but it's never exact. Most of the time, the taste is slightly fruity and a little less roasty...

Sep. 18th, 2018

This is a very basic Wuyi oolong, with the deep, roasty flavor you'd expect. There's a caramel sweetness and the aroma has a bit of tobacco. I compared this to Teavivre's Da Hong Pao, and while the Teavivre DHP had a slight fruity note that was lacking here, I thought this compared pretty well otherwise. For $2, it's n...

Decent dark roast oolong, but nothing special. It had a nutty, caramel flavor that reminded me of Brazilian coffee. Considering it was only $2/ounce, I'd buy some again if I was in Chicago and low on oolongs, but it's not something I'd go out of my way for.

I really enjoyed this tea. It reminded me of restaurant oolongs, except with more complexity and less astringency. It resteeps well, too. It isn't my favorite oolong, but it's a solid example of its type.
