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.

Milky Oolong Thailand from Unami

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 28th, 2018

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...

Nov. 26th, 2018

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...

Oct. 27th, 2018

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...

Sep. 18th, 2018

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...

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
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...

Sep. 18th, 2018

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.

Dark liquor, resteeps well, up to 4-5 times.
The first sip always mildly surprises me with its sweetness. It has a very mineral taste and there's a hint of smoke. I can kind of taste the advertised fruitiness in it if I concentrate, but that's not a descriptor that would have come to my mind.

I'm not generally a fa...

Jul. 16th, 2018

The tea that I got is packaged in individual packets, each containing six grams (about three US tea bags worth) of relatively large, but broken pieces of tea leaf. It doesn't smell as strongly as most roasted oolongs, but it also doesn't smell overly roasted as inexpensive oolongs often do. Adding water brings out a bi...

Jul. 11th, 2018

The standard tea bags are filled with chopped up tea. The heavily-roasted aroma is quite strong.

Oddly, the brewed tea isn't as aromatic as the dry tea bags. It's nice, but there's no complexity. It smells like tea that has already been steeped once.

The tea definitely tastes roasted. It's smooth and easy to dri...

I wrote a review of this before, but I accidentally deleted it while trying to edit it. Now that I've had a few better examples of Tieguanyin, I don't think this is as good as I initially thought. It's fairly mediocre, actually, with little to distinguish it from other oolongs on the lighter but not quite green end. Br...

I wasn't as impressed with this as I was with the roasted version. It's pretty good, but nothing really stood out to me, and it lacks the complexity of the roasted version. Without the roast it's just another floral oolong to me. However, roasted Taiwanese oolongs are among my favorite teas, so maybe someone who loves ...

The aroma of the dry leaves is very floral, more so than any other Tieguanyin I've had, and the wet leaves are even more aromatic. I'm brewing this in my gaiwan, and after a quick rinse the first infusion is floral and vegetal, with a coolness in the finish that I usually find in Taiwanese oolongs. The second infusion ...

This was one of the free samples I picked with my Teavivre order. I put most of the sample in my gaiwan, leaving just enough for a later western style brew. The dry leaves smell quite roasted, but also floral and somewhat woody. The first infusion has an aroma much like the dry leaves, but a bit more floral. The taste ...

The H&S Formosa Oolong was my first experience with Taiwanese oolong-style tea. As such, I had no idea what to expect going in to it.

Now, I'm not a really big oolong drinker. I mostly like blacks and Japanese greens. As such, my only other experience with oolong (at this time) is a Chinese TGY. Compared to that, th...

A dark oolong with a nutty and buttery taste. It lacks the complexity of a higher quality oolong, but it has the advantage of being cheap and available at grocery stores. I actually prefer it cold brewed, and the ease of putting two bags in a water bottle overnight to take with me the next day is the only reason I'd ge...

This is a blend of Gui Fei and Jade oolongs, since the website doesn't make that clear. It has a very floral aroma, as expected. The first cup is clean with a honey-like sweetness, but it's more aromatic than flavorful. The second cup is more interesting: mild stone fruit notes appear, and the mouthfeel is thicker comp...

A good tea that resembled Darjeeling first flush teas and probably would have convinced me it was a "black" tea if it had not been labeled as an oolong. It's more like a Himalayan black tea that had something different or unusual about it. Not what I expected; it was nothing like Chinese oolongs, nor like Darjeeling oo...
