Panyang Congou from Harney and Sons

Style: Panyang Congou – Region: Fujian, China

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Jun. 13th, 2016

This was the most disappointing pure tea I've ever tried from Harney & Sons.

Dry leaf not very aromatic, but the aroma is pleasant. The leaf is pretty, with fine wiry pieces, fairly finely broken...the faint aroma suggests spice and dried fruit, like fig or date.

The brewed cup is surprisingly lacking in aroma. ...

I like this tea. It has a weird kind of aroma, but it's good overall. The flavor is strong, crisp, and not too bitter. I added cream and sugar. It's interesting that on the package it recommends adding cream and not milk, because I always add cream to my tea.

A wonderful, nuanced black tea with a mild flavor, and complex aroma, also creating nice sensations on the palate.

Dry leaf has a mild but very pleasing aroma suggestive of sweet dried fruit, but fresher and lighter smelling.

Upon brewing, this produces a very dark brown cup with a mellow aroma, yet exquisite fla...

Panyang Golden Tips from Harney and Sons

Style: Panyang Congou – Region: Fujian, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 20th, 2012

Wiry leaf has a good amount of golden tip. I was surprised by the dark color of the liquor produced by these light golden leaves. The picture Harney provided looks a bit deceptive--I found it brews much darker.

Aroma is intensely cocoa-ey and chocolatey. Almost tastes like a cup of unsweetened cocoa. Reminiscent...

ZP77: Panyang Tippy Golden Needles Imperial from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Panyang Congou – Region: Fujian, China

Aroma toasty and caramely, like the crust of a pastry. This tea is so reminiscent of pastry that if I close my eyes, I almost picture there being a baked good, rather than a cup of tea, in front of me.

Dark, rich, but with a pleasingly smooth flavor. Finish leaves a surprisingly lightness on the palate, and a fain...

TP60: China Congou Panyang (Panyong) from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Panyang Congou – Region: China

May. 2nd, 2011

Clean tasting, mild, with a slightly bitter caramel-like quality. A bit flat, simple tasting, but very pleasant. Has a cooling quality, even when hot, and I think it would make a very classic iced tea.

I was expecting this tea to be similar to Upton's ZP20, Panyang Congou Select, because of the similar name, but i...

Apr. 22nd, 2011

A delightful and complex black tea. Very robust and full-bodied, moderate bitterness, but not overly caffeinated. Aroma simultaneously a little smoky, fruity, and malty, with no one quality dominating the others. Very balanced. Very pleasing.

I can see this becoming a favorite everyday black tea for me: it is mu...
