I got one of these for an anniversary gift this past June, but decided to get another for my 29th birthday.
It is pleasant, if you like dank puerh. Definitely was wet storage tea. However, now that it’s in my care, I’m working on getting the dankness down by storing it into my ‘dry storage’ cabinet. I enjoy the dank, sweet, mellow earthy notes throughout. Nice longevity; up to 20+ infusions.
I purchased 250 grams of this milk oolong for my birthday this year. I brew it up as often I can, but I have other teas that I also drink on the daily at work. I gotta admit that for the price point, it’s pretty solid. Is it the best Milk Oolong I’ve had? No, but it is a good one to have at work when you’re not 100% thinking of the tea notes.
I drank this tonight at home, though. I split the pack between work and home. I tend to brew this up when I’m feeling lazy, tired, or want to gongfu, but mindlessly do so. ;)
The first steep has all of the milkiness that comes with an oolong such as this tea. However, after the first two infusions, that creamy note goes away. The leaf opens up quickly and it brews like a TGY. Soft, floral, and slight vegetal notes throughout the remainder of the session. I do have to admit that the sessions lasts up to 8-10 infusions, but doesn’t seem to go any further than that amount.
I think this is a good basic, straightforward dianhong. It has the classical, smooth caramelly profile and is robust. The leaves look cool. I would also say that it is a bit boring though. I also have a Yunnan black bi luo chun from Yunnan Sourcing that looks very similar to this (and is pretty cheap as well), and that one is so much more interesting and aromatic, with much more flowery, spicy and peaty notes going on. So I don’t think this deserves the name ‘top grade’. Nice tea for grandpastyling at work though.
Flavors: Caramel, Honey
Wow. This is a strange dianhong. These buds are huge, similar to silver needles. They are very hairy, the inside of the bag is covered in a thin layer of bud fluff. Smell of the dried leaves is not so strong, fresh, eucalyptusy.
The brew is a very bright yellow, with hardly any of the reddish hue of `normal’ red tea. It is very transparent. The brewed leaves appear very lightly-oxidized, with a lot of greenness coming through.
This tea lacks the body of classic dianhongs. Little maltiness. This drinks quite like a white tea in fact. It is sweet and aromatic, in a piny way. Eucalyptus or pine needles perhaps. There is some resemblance to the typical caramelly dianhong aroma but much more in a fresh, spicy way. The finish has spices and nutmeg but is a little short to my taste, it doesn’t really linger in a sweet way, unless you brew it pretty strong. But maybe that’s the way to go anyway because big buds like these don’t give of their flavour so quickly.
Nice. This can’t replace the ‘real’ dianhongs and I wouldn’t have it for breakfast, but it’s good on its own. At 10$/100g with free shipping I think this is good value.
Flavors: Caramel, Eucalyptus, Green Beans, Nutmeg, Pine
Didn’t buy this from Moylor but it is the same year and batch. Not rating this due to how young it is. This is not as fishy or fermentationy as I was expecting for the age. The fermentation flavor isn’t bad, and the overall flavor is decent. I could drink this if I had to, but I’m going to let this sit for another year to see how it develops.
This is a fairly nice ripe puerh that had a bit of a shaky start but got much better as I resteeped it. It was a generous free gift from Taylorxia2014 at Moylor tea co. It started out with a note I would describe as slightly sour cherries and a moderate amount of fermentation flavoe. The sour note only lasted one or two steeps and the fermentation a couple more. What was left behind was a nice semi sweet note that I am having a hard time describing specifically. I also think I bought this tea from someone else at some point for when I saved the image for the tea page I found I already had the same image under the same name but I couldn’t find another one on Steepster so I must not have logged it before. This tea seems also to have a very nice color to it and as I am going to photograph it that is a good point. So far I have had nothing but a positive experience with Moylor although I have not tried their sheng. I definitely recommend his shop.
I steeped this tea twelve times in a 100ml teapot with 13g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 7 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 15 sec, and 15 sec.
Flavors: Earth, Sweet
Drank six steeps of this and then brewed more for my photography. It was a nice tea but nothing spectacular. There was no bitterness and very little fermentation to it. There were also no wet storage notes. There was a sweet note but it was not pronounced enough to call it dates, more a muted sweetness. I liked this tea but wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.
I steeped this six times in a 159ml Yixing Teapot with 12.5g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, and 20 sec.
This is another nice tea from Moylor. While it is not in any way spectacular it tastes far better than the cost would suggest. It was a little bittersweet at first with a moderate amount of fermentation flavor. Initially a light amber color to the tea which got darker and thicker as I resteeped it. For the price it is very good, I think I paid around $13 or so for this one. Someone had speculated that it probably isn’t from 2003 but about that I have no way to know. I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to restock this tea but I will certainly drink it again.
I steeped this tea eight times in a 180ml Yixing Teapot with 12.5g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. The last couple of steepings were for my tea photography but I drank them cold after I was done taking pictures.
Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Earth
This was a fairly nice ripe tea although I doubt it was from Ancient trees. The price was too low. It had a moderate amount of fermentation flavor with a sweet taste and no bitterness. This was the first tea I have drank from my Moylor order and this tea was surprisingly good for a $20 tea. I really have no complaints about this tea.
