I quite like this tea. I am a grapefruit fan and drinking this tea is like sitting back and having some fresh grapefruit without it squirting you in the eye, and no worries about getting some of that bitter pith on your tongue. I don’t know about its BB and detox effects, but I do know that it is nice and refreshing to drink.

Quite a yummy Da Hong Pao. I have been purchasing lots of this type of tea from many different vendors and it is surprising how different they all are. This is a keeper.

Nice cup of tea. I like it better than the Honey Black tea made by the same company. A little bit more complex.

This is a pretty mild tea for a black tea. I thought I would like it more based on all the favorable reviews, but it didn’t make a strong impression on me. Not sure I am crazy about tea that tastes of sweet potato.

I am very sorry to say that my once absolutely favorite tea is now undrinkable (to me). The last time that I bought this, there were no flavorings. Now, they have added “natural flavorings” that smell and taste awful. Fortunately, DavidsTea’s customer service is amazing and I was able to bring this back to the store and trade for something without flavorings. The Pouchong Ooolong is pretty good.

The smell is nice, and there are some nice flavors, citrus specifically. That said, it is basically a fancy pants Earl Grey tea. If you like Earl Grey, you will like this. I will pass.

I really enjoy this tea. Nicely scented — mellow and just the right level of smokiness. I brew Western style. The first steep was great, didn’t really work for a second steep. I would buy this tea again.

I received this as a sample – a very delicious tea. The dry tea reminds me of Milk Oolong — tight little buds. The taste and smell of the tea is reminiscent of a roasty big red robe only more complex – some definite floral notes. Very satisfying.

I am trying as many milk oolong teas as I can get my hands on. This is a lovely tea, buttery and smooth, good for many steeps.
