Excellent Oolong. I was surprised at how much the leaves expanded. This Ti Kuan Yin is right up there with the best I’ve had. Nice Flower fragrance, smooth Oolong flavor. Highly enjoyable. Brews 3 steeps well. Nice selection Numi….
45 Tasting Notes
Fresh Green Oolong. Good. Two steeps will do. I added a slice of ginger. Looking forward to my next cup.
I thought it was a nice cup of tea, common yes, but that’s why it would be an everyday tea with your meals like Keemun said. Tea like this aids in digestion and is soothing on the stomach. Tasty and soothing. Thanks Rishi for bringing this one in.
I found this one to be a bit woodsy, had a dry finish with the classic Oolong flavor staying with you. I was surprised at how different it tasted “barely sipp-able hot” compared with “gulp-able hot”. The taste was much better once it cooled down a bit.
Very close to black tea, but has that Oolong flavor as a foundation. I was impressed how the flavor came thru into the 3rd infusion. Very nice, would go well with chow mein. An easy to drink oolong on the oxidized side…with smoother energy than black tea.
It had plenty of silver needle in it, and was delicious. Very Good… Want more.
I found that the Lychee agree’s with the Oolong which is mild and in the background. I liked the aroma, and found the flavor didn’t drop off the map on the second steep. Good tea…even though I’m not as found of blended/ flavored teas. I get such a kick out of using just leaf & hot water seeing how amazing the tea by itself can be.
This would be good on ice, very mellow in nature. Doesn’t have a pungent Oolong flavor coming thru , but a very mild flavor.
Oolong is so great. This is a lighter one with a sweet floral flavor that reminds me of a fine white wine, but without the alcohol flavor. I would say very good for a light Oolong…
Superb Oolong, tasted like a Roasted Jade Oolong if you can imagine that. Medium roast. First steep was outstanding, 2nd steep – wish it was like the first. 3rd, let’s do another pot…
Very, very nice & Smooth – a highly enjoyable black tea.
This reminds me of the kind of Oolong you would get at a nice oriental restaurant, except darker. Definitely woodsy, dark in color, nice smell to it. Would be good to drink after eating too much at the “all you can eat bar”
First sip and I knew this was good tea. I got a chocolate note coming thru. Very nice white tea.
I like this, it’s a light tasting black tea. Easy to sip, nothing too outstanding about the flavor, just nice to drink.
Had a pot of this at the Asheville Dobra tea house, flavor came thru very well over three infusions. It had a classic Oolong taste with a roasted flavor. Very Dark, smooth and easy to drink. Dobra is a nice place to sit & chat over a cup of tea.
Could sense the cinnamon coming thru, adding a nice warmth to the blend. Overall easy drinking, didn’t need sweetener, which is a sign of an excellent brew. I didn’t experience a jolt of any sort, but rather a gentle lift. Nice tea.
Very drinkable as Morning Bus said, reminds me of an earthy Peony. Could be an “acquired taste” to some. I like how Runa connects the tea to the people where it grows, providing cultural stimulus to consider while you sip the tea. I liked seeing the videos of them drinking it early in the am around the campfire…(runa.org)
It tasted like a mild Oolong with fruity notes, I enjoyed it…twice. Nice color. I’d grab this one if it was on sale.
It’s got some zest from the Lemon & Ginger, and the Tulsi flavor comes thru. A warm, relaxing cup of tea. This one would be nice if you had a cold and were hanging around the house, reading or staring out the window.
I thought it was a mellow black tea with a vanilla aroma and finish. I drank it with a little bit of honey and enjoyed cup after cup…nice blend.
I was looking forward to this cup, Chamomile-Rooibos-Tulsi & Vanilla….sounds soothing. It’s good, but it needs more Rooibos and Vanilla to the mix. The Vanilla overpowers it.
I enjoyed the mellowness of this tea, I admire what they were trying to achieve with the flavor, but a little disappointed they did it with “natural flavors”. Isn’t it nice when tea is made with only tea, herbs or spices.
I’ve just discovered my new favorite tea, I love the gentle influence of tranquility this tea induces. Nice spicy, mint type of flavor. I really like when tea is good by it’s self, no additives needed. Tea leaves and hot water. What a gift.
