Tea Hong is one of my favorite tea vendors for several reasons. First, and most importantly, their tea is wonderful. I truly have not had a single tea from Tea Hong that I didn’t enjoy, and every tea I have tried from them has been of very high quality. I am primarily an oolong drinker (though I’ve been exploring aged pu’erh recently) and they are one of the first, if not the first, vendors I go to when I am looking to get more Wuyi yancha, Phoenix dan cong, gaoshan, or hung shui. The Wuyi yancha I have tried from them has been some of the best I’ve tried thus far, ESPECIALLY in that price range. I seriously, the Cassia Extraordinaire is probably the best yancha I have tried from anywhere, and costed less than some of the other “premium” quality yancha sold elsewhere. And of course there’s their Phoenix dan cong. The dan cong I have tried from them is always interesting and complex, and a delight to drink. Their Honey Orchid Supreme (Mi Lan Xiang) was very good: fruity, floral, long aftertaste, complex, longevity, everything one looks for in a good quality dan cong.
Aside from the quality of their tea, Tea Hong’s customer service is great too. Every time I email them, even when it’s just to chat or ask basic questions, I get a response quickly. They don’t mind sharing their opinion on things, and they don’t mind speaking frankly and truthfully about their teas.
So yeah, I am very happy that Tea Hong is around. There’s a ton of tea vendors that have some great teas, but there are few that have an entire selection of great teas and can consistently impress every time I order. They will certainly remain on the top of my list for as long as I drink tea 🙂 Looking forward to my next order.
