This was my morning tea at work today.

Thank you yyz for another interesting tea. I feel like I don’t have the knowledge or palate to really understand some of these teas. You’ve pushed me out of my comfort zone, and while I may not have “got” all the lessons – I really appreciate the experience and somehow I’m looking at some teas differently. Thank you!!

LOL this one confuses me. First off – I had a little argument in head about what this actually was. In my limited experience Jin Jun Mei is black, Wuyi Rock is oolong, milk is oolong. The leaves looked like a black tea, smelled like a black tea – the side of me that was voting for black finally won the argument and this got chosen for morning (I’m trying to drink black in the morning – oolong in the arvo).
Once I actually was drinking it (at this point there was no doubt it was a black – yay I got it right!!!), my confusion really set in. This has some of the characteristics of a malty, chocolatey Chinese black – that part of me is really happy – it has a really starchy mouth feel – that part of me not so happy (too starchy) – it has that really “high, acidic, white wine, up your nose” thing that I have no idea how to describe – but I don’t like it(ok this goes away as it cools some – that’s a good thing).
Way too many things going on for my poor newbie brain. I’m not sure that it’s that I don’t like this, I think it’s more I don’t understand this. Maybe if I understood the nuances, I could appreciate how they are playing off each other – but for now it just seems like a bunch of noise in my mouth. I think I would like to try this one again 6 months from now and see if I’ve “grown” into it.

If you have enough try it in very short steeps. Like 5 s poured off slowly ,with boiling water. Not really what I usually do with Chinese blacks but it creates a thinner tea and the flavour is kind of like a cross between caramel and corn syrup. I have some blacks that seem odd and counterintuitive. One was labeled as a green black, but looks like a very tippy black tea and they mean it. Treat it to hot water and you get, those vitamin c like notes, brew it as a picky green and it’s chocolate. This one’s kind of opposite for some reason. I don’t know why they called this a rock tea either it is rolled. I’m used to a milk tea being one thats good to steep in milk. Though I’m not sure I’d do that with this tea. If you want some more to play with let me know, I’d be happy to send it to you:)

Very interesting review Dexter…I think you’ve managed to describe very well how it translated to you.

This tea reminds me of the corn syrup my mother used to pour on ice cream as a child. It has a rich sweet flavour, mixed with roasted notes, cocoa, a hint of malt and sweet dried fruit. It is really smooth brewed at high temperatures and very short steeps ( boiling and 5-10s to start). In later steeps it mellows to a caramel. The aftertaste is very sweet and lingering. It resteeps really well and I ’ve steeped it past 11 times. When brewed western style the flavour becomes too much for me and heads to an acidic molasses. The liquor is red edged with gold even at short steeps.

The dried leaves are small, very tightly wound and like to interlock with each other. It can make it difficult to get out of the bag. They are shiny black, with reddish copper buds and smell like raisins. It makes a fantastic dessert tea.

this sounds delicious! how do you pick on aliexpress? im completely lost. did you know the seller before you placed an order? or its like gambling?

I just lost a big long message but I’ll start again. First I’ll say that I have really only had issues with transactions twice. Once the seller cancelled the transaction before shipment with no communication. This was no big deal, my money was refunded without issue, it was just a little rude. Later on I found out that the item was out of stock. The second time was more serious as they put the item into shipped status, then said the item was out of stock and tried to foist a whole bunch of unwanted alternates on me. This was not a big sale and eventually I agreed on a tea because the sale was under five dollars and not worth going to dispute. Otherwise my experience has been positive and I have now done over 30 transactions on the platform.

I guess it is a little bit like gambling as I have bought from sellers ( all positively) with no sales history ( the first sale was the Laoshan which was an amazing price of $12/250g including shipping). Generally I will attempt communication with the seller as this will often tell me whether they no their stuff or are simply copying adds from Taobao. Remember though that English is not their first language usually and tyhei can be mix communications. I have had some great conversations with sellers and learned many things. Some things to bear in mind: descriptions can be misleading so look at the factory produced description if possible and look for information about shipping weight etc. If it is not clear ask. I mostly ignore the star system 4 or 5 stars simply means that the transaction was completed successfully and the buyer got more or less what they expected. If their are negative ratings look at what they are about. Mostly its items that the seller can’t do anything about like shipping time and sometimes it’s only one product that has skewed the ratings. Don’t discount sellers because they sell non tea related things. Often this is where you can get family grown, or more unusual products, or in some cases you can get great deals because they can afford to buy in volume. I found most of my sellers either through searches of specific items is. Rizhao tea, or by looking at the sales page ( that’s how I found this seller. He had great tea but is currently not selling). If the item is not unique to the seller copy the description into the search engine and see what comes up. I’ve seen the same tea varie in cost by over 30$. I got this tea for under 13$ where other sellers were selling it for over 90. If you have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I bought on aliexpress only once. Some one recommend me the link for the cake, so it was very safe transaction. It is so addictive I can’t stop browsing

I sometimes have that problem as well;).
