This is by far my favorite oolong tea. Its very floral and refreshing. Its like taking a sip from the fountain of youth and savoring every moment. This has to be one of top oolong tea from Mandala and best oolong I have had. The only reason why I do not give it a 99 is because I get about 7 flavorful cups from the gaiwan out of this, but well worth the money.

Flavors: Flowers

Very relaxing cup of tea. Can brew over 20 times in the gaiwan. Its not too light which was what I was afraid of but this never disappoints. Rather it has more health benefits or not, that is not what matters. Very pleased with this tea.

Decent Sencha tea, I enjoy the sweet veggie taste. I can get two steeps from this tea, after that I can add rice crispies to make a genmaicha tea.

I bought an ounce of this not expecting much because it was a cheaper tea ($4.50 an ounce) but I really enjoy this tea! I am a big fan of Keemun black tea and this is very similar. I believe the Chinese have the best black tea. This one does not disappoint, I trust this source being that it comes from Yunnan. All high quality Yunnan black tea have a honey/sweet potato taste, this one has this plus a very light smokiness.

Flavors: Honey, Sweet Potatoes

I was very impressed with this tea, its a very complicated tea in that it produces many different floral notes using the gaiwan. It was a medium oxidized tea which I found it was a nice balance. Very high Quality and relaxing beverage. I haven’t tried every sing oolong tea but this one is my favorite.

Very pleasant light green tea. It lacks bitterness and produces a calming cup. Comes from the nine famous mountains in china, a place home to monks that pray all day. This is a meditative tea that would be wonderful to enjoy in nature.

This is a tea that comes from a highly demanded tea region (Wu-Yi Mountain). This tea is grown on a rocky mountain which brings a unique tasting tea. Da Hong Pao teas can be some of the most expensive tea sold in the world. I do like this tea but its not my favorite Wu Yi tea. I do prefer the lesser oxidized version.
