Silver Moon Himalayas 2016
unforgettable ‘bright’ aftertaste
I’ve tried many black oolong teas from Nepal , Darjeeling and many Oriental Beauties from Taiwan. This one is right at the top. Unique bright colourful fruity aftertaste. This tea also has surprised me by its silky and smooth mouthfeel.
Brewing parameters: 1.5 g in 70 ml gaiwan, using 85c temp. 6 steeps without a rinse: 60s/60s/90s/120s/180sBarak Dallal
Tuocha Squares 2010
Don’t like it
I got this for fun and thought it was something like Menghai Spring pressed together to form the little squares. I did not realize the taste could be so different from the loose leaf tea, and it is only very little bit cheaper. I think I’ll stick with Menghai Spring for puer now. There is one thing I learned never-the-less, a tea may look the same, but taste completely different!ppwong
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 Starting Hongcha
This is my first full-leaf hongcha, and I’m glad it was. It has a direct, enticing flavour neither bitter or overly sweet, with a short aftertaste. It is a good “meal tea”.
You get a considerable amount of tea for a good price, which makes this an easy choice for brewing in larger pots for gatherings. This tea does not seem to “overbrew” especially fast, but further experience might tell otherwise.
This tea is also suitable for brewing at half strength and carrying in a thermos, where it will keep for more than two hours without getting bitter. It has been my experience that the so-called “floral” characteristics are simplified but made more bold by this method.
Overall, this is a very good selection for a very good price.Michael Eversberg IITony Pham
Bell Shape Utility Gaiwan
I thought I was going to be the first one to write a review for this one but found someone else ahead of me 🙁 Anyway, this is the best quality I can get for this price, even when compared to the shops I know in China!Amadeus388
