Narcissus Classic 2016
Delicious and carefree tea
I bought this tea for a lunch party for the price, because there were 8 guests, so I guessed I would use up the whole pack for it. I left the leaves in an 8 cup pot to refill for two times and changed once afterward to refill once. So total 40 cups. There is still half a pack of leaves. The tea was aromatic, delicious and great with the meal. Everyone enjoyed it. Strength of the tea was not quite even because of this steeping method, but that was expected. However, this quality is beyond my expectation for the price!Jean v. Young
Cream of Puer 2013
This tea is black as night and smooth as velvet — not a bitter note to be found. It has a slightly earthy aroma as you’d expect from a puer, put only slightly. My only other experience with puer was a large 5-year-old tea cake (purchased elsewhere). Tea Hong’s s Cream of Puer are more subtle, though equally rich. I’ve had a gaiwan going all day with the same teaspoon of nuggets and it’s 7:00 p.m. now. It’s still turning out lovely dark, rich, velvety-smooth tea with virtually no steeping time. This tea has helped my concentration through a publishing deadline today, yet I am not jittery. This is no doubt cream of the crop tea.Karen Ager
Red Jade 2020
Smooth and minty
This is a wonderful Ruby 18. It is very smooth, with a strong minty taste. Just what I was hoping for. High quality stuff.Richard Deitz
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
Glad that you like it. Phoenix Classic really is a good choice for many different occasions!Tea Hong
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
