Tieguanyin Deep Brown 2010
A fine oolong
This was my first “browned” oolong. I purchased it in late 2012, when it was just a bit young for drinking, from what I’ve read. At first, I had some issues with the flavours being a slight bit harsh, but over the last few months it has certainly mellowed. This is, I believe, the effects of maturation, which it does well in basic packaging.
This tea infuses easily, especially in my rather lazy method of leaving the leaves in the gaiwan the whole time I drink from them and makes good tea when brewed in a pot at a 1g / 100ml ratio. It is also suitable for storage in a thermo for travel, so long as the ratio does not go beyond .6g / 100ml.
When taken straight, it has a bold, smokey flavour with undertones of honey. The honey flavour lingers the longest. When taken in the weaker ratio, the honey disappears and the smokey portion remains. Conjures alertness, I’ve found.
I have found this stimulates the digestive tract, probably due to caffeine content, after meals – most particularly cold meals like salads.
This is a good place to begin exploring browner style oolongs.

Wild Tree Black Tea 2016
My first experience with this
This is the first time I ever heard of this tea and the first that I ever tried it. To me, it is rather like a combination of black tea and oolong. Normally I think black tea lacks the great smell and soother and more complex tastes of oolong, but this one has some of these characters. I am totally surprised! I have tried it using both gongfu style and ordinary teapot way. Like it.Manila Tran
Song Cultivar 2015
Perfume for the palate
Oh, the excitement when the Tea Hong box arrives! Song Cultivar was the first to be sampled after the un-boxing of my second shipment. The dry leaves make music as they tinkle into the gaiwan, blooming into a mass of plump foliage when brewed. The tea is clear and golden brown but tastes like a gray, misty day by a crackling fire. Deep and slightly bitter, it leaves a citrus-like perfume lingering on your palate.Karen Ager

Thanks for Yixing pot priming instruction http://teaguardian.com/how-to-make-tea/tea-accessories-yixing-teapot-1.html#.U_2X0kvVryc which many people neglect to follow, sometimes simply due to ignorance. This pot is for myself, not for my friend. And Bamboo Drum pot does look beautiful to myself, and I believe, also to those who know this feeling of attachment to the Yixing teapot like to old friend, partner and companion. And like with a friend – it take years do develop relationship. So the Yixing Pot is not a mere pet.
I have never experienced anything like this feeling toward piece of furniture or porcelain or etc….To Yixing only.
I have noticed that description is “Material: Wuhui Shao (Straw-covered low temperature refired)”…
– Does it means the pot been fired and then refired?
– High-fired or low-fired?
– How it affected the density?
– How porous is the pot?
– How thick?
Can you please point the direction where I can find more reading about this material and the process?
I did not mean to be annoying but buying online is difficult. The real look and touch are so important…
These questions is not about the fact that buying online $$ pot might not be the smartest thing… Leo’s reputation is known as well as his passion and dedication to his tea crusade mission…
These question is about what the mouthfeel will be like. Thick or smooth… Thinner or sharper…It might be that a high temperature fired pot will not absorb any liquids or wick subtle flavors and aromas, a lower firing pot will…Oleksandr Lyashenko
