Oolong Tea Reviews
Review: Jasmine Ancient Beauty
The Persimmon Tree’s Jasmine Ancient Beauty is a unique offering. Instead of being paired with a light green tea, the jasmine pairs well with the robust, dark oolong tea leaves in this blend. The result is a smooth, full-bodied tea which is quite pleasant to drink.
Review: Blue People Oolong
A tea oddity, Aroma Tea Shop’s Blue People Oolong resembles green pebbles more than tea due to its curious preparation. The flavor in this tea is strong and intense – the tea shop describes it as a “party in your mouth!” Despite giving the tea the benefit of the doubt, this reviewer did not find it so…
Review: Tie Guan Yin “Iron Goddess” Oolong
Even as the weather changes, the evenings here are quite chilly. A warming cup of oolong is exactly the right fit for a slow evening at home. Teavivre’s Tie Guan Yin tea is an excellent accompaniment to any evening. The flavors are full and rich, making a very satisfying cup of tea that lasts for multiple steeps.
Review: Special Edition Tie Guan Yin
I’ve had a sample of this oolong tea that I purchased from Life in Teacup sitting in the tea cupboard for a while, waiting for a quiet night. Well that night finally came, and I have to say — this tea is incredible! It’s well-flavored and packs an intense aroma with the charcoal roast and succulent florals and fruits. To boot, it’s well-priced. I’ve reviewed multiple oolong teas on the site so far, and this Tie Guan Yin has got to be one of the best.
As I posted earlier, I recently received a wonderful oolong tea gift from China. After trying this lightly oxidized oolong tea several times, I love it. I know for certain that this is one of the teas which we can and will drink everyday.
The biggest problem I forsee with this tea is how to get more from Shanghai. Full review and tasting notes follow below –
If you celebrate, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I spent the holiday drinking a wonderful Shanghai-origin high mountain oolong tea and am hoping to review it soon. In search of a light tea for breakfast, I decided to try Ali Shan from thepuriTea.
