From Asha Tea House

King’s Tea is a blend of Dong Ding (凍頂) Oolong tea, from Nantou (南投) County in Taiwan, that is finished with a touch of Ginseng. The tea is heavy fired over charcoal giving it cocoa and coffee notes that contrast perfectly with the Ginseng.

Taste: Chocolate and coffee.
Smell: Heavy roast fragrances.

King’s Tea is a dark roast Oolong with deep, rich flavors reminiscent of coffee.

There is a lingering sweetness in my mouth when I am drinking this. This is full of flavor. A thoroughly enjoyable brew. I have a generous sample that is getting low. This is definitely a tea I must have in my possession. Great price for a great tea….

Finishing off the last of my sample of this one right now. Super good! No new insights to add to my last note, but I find this tea growing on me. And I think it is excellent for the price. I just checked Asha’s website to order this one yesterday and found that it was sold out! I wrote David at Asha an email inquiring of the ETA on possible restocking of it, and he told me that ETA is unknown for now, but that there was actually one remaining 50g pack left that I could buy. Really appreciate service like that! David said this tea has apparently been a very popular one among his offerings. So glad I could acquire some. Knowing that more is on the way, I decided to brew the last of it now… to my great enjoyment. I hope Asha can get more of it in at some point.

Drinking this makes me feel all happy and warm inside. The first oolong I ever had was a dark roast one and green oolongs have never been able to measure up for me. Something about the rich warming effect of the roasted ones just clicks with me and my perpetually-cold self.

This tea has a aroma that really brings me to some wonderful morning memory, I just can’t seem to put my finger on what it’s reminding of, it’s almost like the smell of the hull of the toasted peanut. It has a great roasted rich burnt coffee aroma and taste, but the most unexpected sweetness that kind of tingles a little in your mouth and lingers long with the after taste. The first infusion was much more complex than the proceeding but it keeps it’s originality throughout.

So I received this sample from David. I was so excited to try it since I loved my last order from him. The description of the tea is a spot on match.The dry leaf smells of a heavy roast and the wet smells of roasted coffee that was left a little too long in the roaster.

The first sip of the tea was strong. It tasted like a cross between roasted coffee and a bitter cacao chocolate. I was not sure how to take it at first until I swallowed and the sweetness hit the back of my mouth. WOW. I have never had that before from any tea. I took another sip and it was even sweeter. Very nice. It made my mouth water. I smelled the wet leaf in the gaiwan again and the smell was even stronger of a bittersweet cacao.

15 minutes after drinking the tea my mouth was still sweet from the tea…nice. I have already put in for an order.

I did 4 steeps the first time. The second time I followed the steeping instructions of 1 minute steeps. I did not like it as much as the first time I drank it. I guess 2 minutes for this tea is what I like. :)
