The leaves of this dahongpao from Golden Coast Tea Club are consistent with what you would expect from this Wuyi oolong. I used 7g of leaf to 6oz boiling water in a gaiwan infusing for 5s increasing by ~3s every time. The aroma is spicy and has a strong smell of oak wood with hints of vanilla. The flavor has similar notes of wood, spice, and vanilla and is rich. The liquor is a nice ruby red. This is a good tea and I will definitely drink it again.

I feel like they forgot about the orange in these. I’ve had a couple steeps now and while this is a really nice puerh -smooth, with some depth there is little to no orange to be found. Which makes me sad because i love orange + puerh and was so hopeful for these little guys. Still though, not crying over it because the puerh in itself is lovely and has been very enjoyable this afternoon.

I love those little shu stuffed mandarines I’ve gotten from YS & also from Teavivre.
I sent you one of those, right?


you did! and Kittenna got me another from another company to try. :)

I had no intention of buying a Taiwanese oolong when I went to this teashop on Monday but the owner and I started discussing teas we enjoy and she wanted to show me this one. Once I smelled it I was sold. It smelled like candy; a slightly floral, fruity candy with hints of melon and stone fruit and spice.

The dry leaf is a tightly rolled glossy blue spruce green with bits of yellowish olive.

I used enough leaf to cover the bottom of 150 ml gaiwan and gave the leaves a rinse. I used water @96°C.

I hoped for a resilient tea as the seller suggested this tea could be steeped 6-8 times even using western style brewing and so far it’s delivered. I am still enjoying this tea after the 11 th steep and it is still imparting a well balanced sweet fruity spicy floral tea that has a creamy body and produces a tingling in my mouth. I started with short steeps because of the intensity of fragrance. My times so far have been 5,7,10,12,15,20,25,30,40,60,80s.

Flavour notes I have noted are: cream, tart peach, melon, papaya, pineapple stewed pears, and apricot which appears more towards the end; honey, candied rose petals, gardenia, a bit of lilac, and magnolia, with the floral notes heading towards a nutmeg spice later on mixed with a creamy cool magnolia and orchid; corn, sweet vegetal notes with a bit of artichoke later on, and occasional hints of sandalwood and citrus notes. The sweetness and floral spice mix often intensifies in the aftertaste. Overall this tea is leaving me feeling balanced and cleansed and I look forward to continuing this session. What I have noticed is this tea appreciates a rest between steeps. Once I have allowed it to rest this tea tends to have a more balanced flavour profile. This tea is also very well balanced between it’s floral and fruity elements with both being well present but with neither overpowering the other. I’m looking forward to continuing this session and am enjoying my impulse purchase.

I’m finishing off this session after 19 steeps. (The final ones being 130, 180, 240, 300, 300, 360, 600 and 600s). The tea still retained a fruity honeyed sweetness with spice and still produced a tingling in my mouth.


i’ll be looking to try this company out later on…


:-). She has some beautiful teaware ( especially some really gorgeous tea tables) and a larger selection of puerh, and Oolong’s and other teas than what is on her site. She also has black buckwheat tea.

I ended up steeping this tea 19 times and it’s not completely exhausted yet.


Buckwheat tea?! That excites me.


awesome YYZ…may have to grab a zipcar and go check it out….when i’m allowed to buy tea again. sigh


Sounds good! I’m going to have to pick some up.


Weirdly they look to be the same company, but with wildly different websites.


The golden tea club is the old site but hadn’t been taken down. I would concentrate on the gc-tea site.


However I think the goldenteaclub site looks like it’s the only one set up for US customers. I would contact her if you are interested in a specific item because the GC site allows for smaller volume purchases.


Oh, that’s weird! Ok, I’ll look at the gc-tea site. :) And I’m in Canada, so no worries. :D
