Delightful. This has all the good things I like about Earl Grey in a lighter form. I love this.
Pleasantly surprised after my awful experience with the other bagged tea EnjoyingTea sent with my order. (Seriously, pass on their bagged oolong. Just say no.) This isn’t as good as the loose stuff (what is) but it’s decent and didn’t make me immediately dump the entire mug of tea down the drain, so it gets props for that.
I can actually taste the chrysanthemum. It’s not as fresh as the loose Chrysanthemum tea I have in the cupboard (see 2nd paren note in paragraph above) but it’s pretty decent if you don’t have the means to brew the loose stuff. I can see being offered a cup of this in a B-string Chinese restaurant and not thinking the quality was awful.
Thanks, EnjoyingTea, for the free sample. This came in the cutest wee li’l tea tin. And I greatly appreciated the amount of free tea stuffed into it. I imagine I can get at least 10 cups in if I’m careful.
This is delicious. The leaves smell nice, a fresh almost-nutty scent. I steeped a tiny scoop of this and left it in for a while. The flavor is nice and strong. Distinctively “oolong” but without any fruity aftertaste like some others have. Instead, it tastes almost-smoky and just toys with turning bitter but never does. YUM.
Meh. This is pretty subpar oolong, but I honestly wasn’t expecting much since it was bagged, and included in my order from EnjoyingTea.com for free (I didn’t even request it!). So thanks for the free tea, but I’m going to leave this in the office cupboard for my coworkers.
I steeped this for a long time because I got distracted. When I finally did take a sip, the color was a darkish brown. Taste: practically non-existent for the amount of time the tea steeped.
A couple months ago, my husband knocked over some of the cast-iron cups for my tetsubin. They fell and the enamel chipped, so it gave me an excuse to order a new pair – as well as the new trivet I’d been wanting! A sample of this tea came with the order, in a cute little tin. Now, I’m little more than a novice when it comes to green teas – I’m just not as good about placing their notes in comparison to the black teas I’m more familiar with. This is smooth, and I can taste the usual green vegetal notes, but they seem to build up to a slightly nutty aftertaste.
I started with a short steep of 30 seconds, and moved on to a minute or so for the next ones. The first two steepings were unremarkable, but the third yielded a more floral fragrance with a hint of buttery aftertaste. I steeped it five times, and the flavor opened up with subsequent steepings, with the best being the fourth.
Enjoyable, affordable, but nothing too special.
This tea is just lovely (though I bought it from a different seller, all the things here seem right so I’m assuming same tea from different sources?). It has a warm sweetness, and when you add some milk and sweetner, it makes for an extremely lovely and drinkable tea. Anyone whos curious about this, please let me know, I’m looking for a reason to go visit the shop this was bought at again, and buy more.
Backlog from yesterday.
I got this in a mystery swap from Shelley_Lorraine. Thanks! This is a very smooth oolong. nothing too exciting about it. I think when it comes to oolongs I like them either really buttery or roasty, otherwise they’re kind of boring. But it was still a nice cup.
Hmm, I don’t think I added enough leaf to this cup. Or the leaves are just too old. This is a sample from LiberTEAS that I received in December 2011! So, it is super old and wasn’t exactly stored under ideal conditions. It tastes very faintly of green tea, but it’s mostly just a cup of warm water.
Oh well. I guess I botched this one by letting it sit around for so long. As a result, my rating is reflective of its current average here on Steepster. Thanks anyway to LiberTEAS!!! I really need to get better about drinking my swap samples shortly after they arrive.
A really fantastic Silver Needle. Sweet with a lovely delicate quality. Fresh tasting with mellow vegetative tones.
Here is my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/21/silver-needle-white-tea-bai-hao-yinzhen-from-enjoying-tea/
Smells like roasted honey. I dont think I noticed so much honey scent before, but I tend to pick up on more characteristics the more times I have a particular tea. First taste is still roasty like I remember, but finishes off sweet. I’ll probably be buying more when my sample runs out.
This is one of my all-time favorite teas. The flavor reminds me faintly of popcorn.
Mild brown rice paired with awesome green tea, and it’s just lovely. This is one I always go back to.
I’m totally loving this oolong. Very generous free sample when I bought a teapot from Enjoying Tea. It smells vegetal in the bag, but very roasty after brewing. I don’t like a strong roasted flavor (not a fan of dark-roast oolong or genmaicha), but the flavor of this is wonderful. It’s sweet and mildly roasty (I do like a pinch of roastiness).
Sipdown tea #10! I received this one from TeaEqualsBliss a good while ago.
The aroma is very natural and sweet. The flavor is very natural as well. This one will be missed!
My friend ordered the rooibos sampler and gave me at least two cups of each. So thank you friend :) brewing this one up made my kitchen smell like oranges. It has a very natural Orange flavor to it. The orange works really well with the rooibos.
One of my daughters brewed a pot for me to try tonight and it was delicate and delicious. it made a lovely golden brew that had a nice taste, but I could not identify any particular note.
1.9 gms tea, 5 oz water: 1st steep (1 min): Rich and powerful yet smooth and complex. Nose, taste, and finish all good. 2nd steep (1.5 min) was weaker but still nice.
Using half a teaspoon per cup, steeping for three minutes, this is a very smooth, nice cuppa Earl Grey – love it – but haven’t tried any of the higher rated ones to compare it to (yet).
One last sip before sending the rest to a friend!
Good at all temperatures. Additionally, with or without sugar this tea has a great cherry note that combines with a smooth Black base. The almond comes in at the finish and makes for a very delicious and well-rounded cup.
I’m having a cup of this now with my Vegan Chili. I have enough for another cup – might have to SIP that down TOMORROW :)
A very generous sample from Enjoying Tea.com. I bought a couple Gaiwan and and this tin came along. For some unknown reason, my oolong collection is almost exclusively made up of Taiwan oolongs. I think I went through a phase of trying to decipher the subtleties of high quality, lightly oxidized Taiwan high mountain teas. Undoubtedly, these Taiwan teas are light, bright, fresh, fragrant and subtle. It seems, probably because my palate lacks sophistication, that I prefer a more robust, assertive flavor profile.
This Fujian oolong displays a fairly strong, tobacco-y dry leaf scent. Quite strong, but once rinsed and heated transforms into a pleasant roasty nuttiness. Obviously, this tea has undergone a modest amount of oxidation producing a yellowish – lt. brown liquor that is pleasing to the eye.
I had to experiment a little to get the my desired water-to-leaf-to-flavor ratio. The first steep was fine, but I thought this tea had better potential. I added a bit more leaf and steeped a bit longer and was impressed with how much deeper the flavor evolved. I was able to coax out a hearty, nutty swallow. As my cup cools, maybe a little leathery hint arises. Unlike Taiwan oolongs I’ve tried, this tea almost entirely lacks any floral aroma. On the upside, this tea has better endurance than most Taiwan teas.
Overall, this is not a great oolong, but it is a pleasant cup. Worthy to be served to company as long as the company isn’t too fancy.
