I’ll be honest, there were two reasons I bought this: 1) it was on sale and 2) I really liked the name; in the way that I could say “I’m drinking Mr. Wang’s Hu Hong”.

Well, after sampling Mr. Wang’s Hu Hong, I’m definitely satisfied with this stuff. It’s a good quality black tea – I get flavors of malt, barley, potatoes, leaves, and a tinge of caramel/brown sugar. A nice full body too (thicc). Good for at least two steeps.

A quality black tea, very good but it’s normally pricey. Get Mr. Wang’s Hu Hong on sale if you can because I’m not sure it’s worth the normal price. That lowers the rating into a “buy it on sale” level.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Brown Sugar, Caramel, Malt, Potato, Roasted Barley

I have too many teas and I forget things, so I’m mostly using this site to categorize and note my preferences. But if someone else gets something out of that, that’s great.

I prefer malty, smoky black teas the most for taste, and puer teas for the “kick” they give me. Though I do dabble in other types those are my two mainstays.

90-100 best of the best. these are the teas that I may even hesitate to drink because I don’t want to use them up.

80-89 great and unique in some way, probably a usual in my rotation. I’ll buy it if I’m getting low, unless it’s very expensive.

70-79 very solid but not spectacular. Buy it on sale.

60-69 not necessarily a disappointment. Just okay. Will drink but won’t buy again.

50-59 I’ll be hard pressed to drink these again, but they aren’t gross. They’ll sit in my storage until I’m bored enough to drink again.

<50 I won’t be finishing this off. Getting grosser as the number goes down.
