Cold Peak 2018
Very Well Done
Often, roasted teas will be overdone. This is not the case with this one. The tea produces a nice floral aroma with a mellow sweet flavor of fruits and some nuttiness. The mouth stays wet and reveals a good body to the tea. Some huigan and mouth activity. Seems to strengthen after a few brews. Long lasting. A very solid tea that holds up repeatedly.Jeffrey Novick
White Peony Classic Long 2016
My First White Tea
This was the first time I drink white tea and I was actually quite surprised upon opening the packaging. It smelled sweet like cookies/biscuits? I wouldn’t have guessed that it was the smell of tea.
I infused it using gongfu parameters in a gaiwan and the aroma of the infusion was the same sweet one. However it didn’t taste like that at all, I got impressions of green tea although a bit faint, and the sweet aftertaste is unlike the creamy sweet aroma. It was really refreshing and light, yet interesting enough because of the long aftertaste and some astringency (I like my tea somewhat astringent because if it is not, I would feel like it is too watery).
And it’s true that this tea is easy to infuse, it is difficult to go wrong unless you infuse it for way too long because then it will taste bitter. Really nice to drink all day.Teddy Lionel
Black Leaf Special 2017
I received “Black Leaf Special” as a sample, I thought should be this one. Infused it using gongfu parameters and I got a cup of wonderful aromatic tea. It resembled the green Tieguanyin (maybe because they are both green oolongs), but richer complexity with more pronounced honeylike sweetness and fruity fragrance. It is rather light in the mouth but leaves an immediate tangy fresh aftertaste. And based on the feel in my stomach, it really has a rather cool TCM properties. A very wonderful tea especially for the complex aroma.Teddy
Orchid Gratus 2017
Unbelievable aroma coming out from a tea! Silky texture and delicious. I still cannot get over it since drinking it 3 hours ago. Really amazingSara Bedford
Sacred Lily 2018
A Real Treat
I would call this a mid-roast tea with a high floral aroma with sweet mineral flavours. My mouth is full of flavour, feeling, and the huigan is big! This is a big tea. Dry leaves are long. Layers of flavor and depth. A real powerhouse!Jeffrey Novick
Snow Orchid 2020
My, my, this tea is full of flavor. Dry leaf aroma of melon. Pale yellow liquor with smooth, floral bouqet that fill the mouth. Huigan is big and long. Tremendous flavor rests on the tongue. Thick mouthfeel. This could be somewhat over the top, and perhaps less leaf should be used unless you are looking for a powerhouse of a perfumed Dancong. Many, many, brews. Quite enjoyable. This is the best selection of Dancong from any dealer I know in Asia.Jeffrey Novick
