Oriental Beauty 2020
Most delicious Oriental Beauty with unique Oriental Beauty tastes. How happy to find teashop good in both China tea and Taiwan tea. I have not tried this shop’s Nepal tea yet. I will try soon.Ai Han Ngau
The Longjing I had previously tasted (perhaps bought from generic market) had nutty aroma and aftertaste. I was curious how much different would the Longjing from Tea Hong be, since this is already supposed to be Grade 1 in mass market.
So I infused it according to the infusion tips with about 3g of leaves in a 150mL gaiwan. I was surprised upon smelling the aroma for.the first time! It smelled like steamed chicken or brothy thick chicken soup (forgive me if this sounds strange), but I guess yes that’s the umami flavor mentioned in the description. The umami was really strong yet very pleasing. Made me wonder that I was actually having a cup of tea. Sweet taste and very refreshing. Umami aftertaste yes, as if you just ate steamed chicken on the ceiling of your mouth but refreshing sweet on your tongue, quite long aftertaste. Very enjoyable, highly recommended! I’m gonna be a regular customer for sure.Teddy Lionel
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.Jeffrey NovickMinh Pham
Honey Orchid Supreme 2018
This tea sings
There is not much I can add to the official description of this rare and fine tea. It is all the things described — mellow, floral tones, undulating earth tones. I have a bowl of Honey Orchid Supreme going at work today. The first two infusions delivered exactly what was promised. I poured water for my third infusion but got sidetracked into a meeting, so let it steep too long. Surprisingly, this “over-steeped” infusion was strong, yes, but never crossed the line into unpleasant bitterness. As described, it fully revealed itself with longer steeping. This tea is complex and a pleasure to drink. It will give you what you ask of it — a soft and mellow experience or a quizzical moment as you try to define its complexity with a stronger-brewed cup. Either way, it is sure to ping your happy place. Every tea from Tea Hong has delighted. I now mourn all the years I wasted drinking “shadow-of-tea-powder” that comes in a typical western tea bag. I can never go back to that now.Karen Ager
