Narcissus Classic 2016
Dark Roast, but not heavy. Mineral notes developing into a chalky finish leaving the mouth with a dryness. Good huigan, but lacking in smoothness, sweetness, thickness in body, and that chocolate flavor that good Shui Xian can exhibit. Somewhat disappointed in this one. I think Tea Hong can do better.Jeffrey Novick

A fine Shu
Whether in the gaiwan or a common earthenware tea pot, this shu infuses dark and flavorful, sweet and inviting with no astringency to speak of. Re-infuses well even at 1g to 100ml ratio. Goes smoothly with savory meals and is very attractive on its own.

GABA Orange Extra
What’s all this talk about Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA)? I ordered this tea based on the lovely description of its taste and the tantalizing photo of the tea itself. I had no idea that the name refers to an oxygen-free, nitrogen-rich fermentation process that boosts levels of naturally occurring GABA. This compound is said to offer possible benefits to the central nervous system. Lord knows, my nervous system could use a gigantic chill-pill. But that’s not why I love this tea. Here’s why: The dry GABA nuggets offer up a heady aroma while the brewed tea’s color and flavor suggest apricot. It’s woody, not sweet. On the second infusion, the leaves plumped up so big, they almost lifted the lid off my gaiwan. I probably used too much tea and underestimated its penchant for water. That was my mistake, but a happy one. The transformation and the taste were both thoroughly enjoyable.Karen Ager

A Pleasant Surprise
Although this may not be the best of all the Nepalese tea I have sampled, it comes in only second to the hand-rolled first flush Jade Moon from xx (Tea Hong: sorry we have to edit out the shop name), which is almost 3 times more expensive! The aroma, depth and complexity are all there, maybe only a touch less floral. I am happy to save the money for trying out more varieties.pucrettub
Eight Immortals Wudong 2020
Will there be a new batch I’m just wondering because Leo said bouquet dancong has a shorter shelf life and there was no spring batch this year.Minh Pham
