1 Tasting Note


Da Hong Pao from Imperial Teas in Lincoln England was my first experience of this tea. I love its darker nature and the toasty/roasted nature.

Woah!! That’s a really low rating. Your comment doesn’t mention anything negative about this tea. Did you have a bad experience with it?

I’ve personally had really good experiences with this Big Red Robe from Verdant, so it seems like something weird must have happened for you to have an experience that leads to a rating of 2. How did you steep the tea? I might have some recommendations to help.

I think the 2 is a mistake….


I agree! I think this rating is really low esp when you don’t say anything negative in the write-up. I normally don’t comment on these but thought I would because of the numerous other positive experiences from other members as well as myself. Don’t get me wrong…it’s totally fine if you have a drastically difference opinion but it doesn’t mention why in your write-up so I was a little confused.


This seems to be Sheryl’s only review – Perhaps a competitor? If not, I apologize for the assumption but this seems a little fishy.
