    • Honey Orchid 2018

      A Great Example

      Very Impressive tea. The tea has a floral taste that gives way to a more savoury flavor. The huigan is strong and the tongue and lips tingle. Thick mouthfeel. The flavor is much stronger than the aroma which invades the mouth and has a strong mineral quality. I needed to use less leaf and it gave so many brews.

      One of the other reviewers asked about aging. I think there is the potential in this tea to age well. It’s a powerhouse. One of the habits that I always recommend is to take the tea out of its bag and put it into a tea caddy. In the 4 months I’ve had this tea, I can see a clear change for the better. Deeper, smoother, more lovely. Look no further for a better example of Milan Xiang.

      Now I understand a bit about tea maturity

      I have heard about it but this is the first tea that has made me experience the interesting thing about tea maturity. I bought the first pack in 2012 because I had read about Leo’s name in a tea merchant’s catalogue here in Switzerland. It was great taste and good value, but when I opened a second pack that I bought last month, the aroma of the leaves instantly tell me it had already become something else. The sweetness was less obvious but much deeper with a prominent ‘woodsy’ tone. The infusion much deeper and mellow and the taste longer. There is something dancing on the taste buds that I don’t think I can write even in German. Maybe it is music in tea taste.

      I am just so disappointed that it is sold out now. I hope the new stock will mature to the same wonders!

    • Shèmen Dancong Double Baked 2016

      Tea Hong never disappoints.
      One of the best Oolongs I ever had, this Shèmen Dancong Double Baked has a rich peach note, both in the aroma and the taste. Try to experiment with short AND longer infusions, both will bring you different, but very rich and complex results.
      It’s an unique tea and isn’t comparable to other Oolongs in my honest opinion as these peach, mandarin notes change their complexity and aroma over the course of the infusions. You won’t regret buying it.

    • Snow Orchid 2020

      ANOTHER POWERHOUSE

      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.

    • Orchid Gratus 2017

      Elegant, complex fragrance

      The first time I had this tea I used the standard infusion parameters. It came across like the Snow Orchid, unsurprising as they are both categorized as bouquet Phoenix oolongs. But from smelling the infused leaves, I can tell that this Orchid Gratus is gravitating towards the traditional Phoenix style. The infused leaves also shows more oxidation than Snow Orchid.
      Then I tried it with 4g/100ml in 40 seconds. Wow, it reminds me of the Big White but without the faint sweet potato/peach aroma, yet somehow more complex. Smelling the tea is like smelling a good perfume, it is almost like there are many different fragrance combined together in a cup of tea. I’d say the aftertaste is not long, therefore I would twirl the tea in my mouth a little bit longer before swallowing it to enjoy the beautiful fragrance.
