Rich and chocolately (not sweet – more like cocoa). I was initially intimidated by this tea and found the taste a little overwhelming (I may have brewed it too strong). Its now one of my favorites and a regular go to.

This was my first venture into quality loose leaf blacktea. I picked up this and a bag of Keemun Hao Ya upon recomendation at the Berekely shop. I will always enjoy this one.

So so good… I can’t believe how naturally sweet this black tea is! I thought of sweet potates upon tasting and as described it has absolutely zero astringency.

I definitely agree with you regarding the surprising sweetness found in this tea. I’m someone who is more into sweeter drinks, so it was a welcoming surprise. Definitely one of my favorites.

Delicious! My first Wuyi Oolong and I am in love. I was browsing the Red Blossom website prior to my visit and was orignally planning on taking home the much cheaper Qi Zhong but I was offered a tasting of this and had to have it. I am a fan of darker teas and this is as dark as an oolong gets at 50% oxidation (so I was told) and it is still wonderfully floral.

Agreed! There was definitely something different about this black tea. It gave a fuller taste and it sticks with you after you finish drinking it. It’s some pretty high class stuff. :)

I also received this as a sample when I placed an order online – Tasty! I read somewhere that Tung Ting is also know as Dong Ding (?)

I drink this daily at work. It doesn’t mention in the description but I believe I was told at the shop that this is a Yunnan black tea. Crisp with a little bite (I do tend to brew my black teas strong – less leaves and shorter brewing time results in a very smooth cup).

My only encounter (so far) with white tea so I do not have anything to compare it to. I find I enjoy it most when brewing with more tea and slightly higher temp. Buget friendly so I can drink daily without guilt.
