Mini Peony 2016
As a child, my summer mornings were often spent in an open field, examining nature’s tiniest details. Mini Peony takes me back there with its tourmaline-yellow liquor and light, fresh aroma of purple clover, daisy and Queen Anne’s Lace. There’s also an herbal scent reminiscent of the sticky milkweed pods I would pull apart to examine. The infused leaves of this tea are a pleasant tangle resembling pea tendrils. Compared to the other white teas I’ve tried, Mini Peony is brighter and softer in taste with a surprisingly round, smooth and substantial texture. If only I could lift the lid off my gaiwan to hear birdsong and buzzing cicadas, my childhood flashback would be complete.Karen Ager
Soft smooth texture
This tea has soft smooth texture and very refreshing taste. I like it because it is not bitter or tannic to the tongue, or rough like other green tea. I can have this in my mug all day long!Ai han Ngau
Cream Stout 2016
Very popular tea
I am very sorry that this is sold out again. That is because it is very popular amongst both our retail as well as wholesale users. However, we too did not foresee stock depletion in such speed. We shall talk to the farmer to make more for next spring. Please accept my apology for the disappointment. Siu PB, Customer ServicesSiu PB
A good tea but didn’t like the smell
Received a free sample of this tea, the flavour was enjoyable but I didn’t like the smell. For me it smelt like very strong pollen and irritated my nose. If you like this smell (like freshly cut grass) then this tea would be ok for you.Mark Radymski
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.Teddy Lionel
Red Cloak Grande 2018
2011 vs 2012
2011 was sold out so I got this 2012 but was surprised the two years don’t taste the same. This is good and has floral taste but I like the more fired taste of 2011 much better. Do you have more fired taste for 2013 or 2014?Mrs Ngo
