From Tea Valley

A “Jin Jiang” (gold award) winner in the prestigious 2008 Wuyi Mountain People’s Choice Tea Competition, this Da Hong Pao is nothing short of excellent.

The aroma of the Jin Jiang Da Ho Pao can be described as roasted and smoky; a tease of the tea’s true potential. A pour of boiling water reveals a delightfully sweet aroma that will permeates through its immediate surroundings. The brew delivers a full body flavor with the perfect balance of sweetness and bitterness. One sip and it is obvious why this is such a prized Da Hong Pao.

While the Jin Jiang Da Hong Pao’s flavors remain complex, the brew is more temperate compared to the Dao Tian Da Hong Pao; a characteristic that is more commonly preferred.

This is my very first tea from Tea Valley and I am very excited! :)

This smells a little sweet and a little smoky and woodsy.

It’s a very nice light brownish-yellow.

The taste is very nice, too! A sweet-woodsy type flavor. It has a mysterious malty-ness to it even.

As it cools for a minute or two…it seems to get sweeter and even BETTER than it was before…it seems with each sip it gets better and better.

This is a great Oolong!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

Another spectacular Oolong tea from Tea Valley. But then, of the teas that I’ve tried from them, I’ve not been disappointed.

This is a very pleasing Da Hong Pao with a nice complexity. It is fairly mellow compared to some Da Hong Pao I’ve encountered, but it still has the distinct smoky sweetness, deep tones of wood and fruit, contrasted by hints of sour.

First, “Thank you” Tea Valley for sending me a sample of this georgeous tea!

I had this review posted in the wrong place. I am reposted to keep this centrally located. Sorry about the error.

I truly loved the simplicity of this tea. It is strange but although it is complex in that it is slightly sweet, a bit earthy, vegatal, with a mild roasted finish. It is simple because all the flavors are perfectly balanced and creates a delicious flavor all on it’s own. I truly enjoyed this tea and feel everyone should try it at least once. It is one of those teas that can be enjoyed every now and again as a treat. Like a fine wine it must be had on special occasions or when you just need the world to stop for a brief moment of peace. A great tea indeed!
