333 Tasting Notes


delicious stuff. Lovely ‘wild’ fruit taste, with less bitterness than others I have had from around this area. A hint of steamed darkened fruity leaf in there.

It just goes and goes with limited change to the taste of the steeps. Robust good leaf. Soft gummy plump mouthfeel and more candy huigan. So good :)

Flavors: Fruity

This was my favourite of the samples sent to me by Elephantasy.

I did make some notes but cant find them – all I remember is that it was really good and I wasnt surprised when I found out it was a more expensive one.


thx for your recognition!

Paging Daylon or other what-cha oolong fans..

I’ve got a damn cold again, so my taste might be way off, but I found a blank sample pack with ‘taiwan gui fei oolong what-cha’ written on it. As it wasnt in its original, thats usually reserved for teas I take to my girlfriends, or out with me – had a look inside, rolled oolong, good for colds – I guessed it might not be that special.. as its in a blank pack.

Wow, its amazing. The first few steeps are like orange and something. A bit like yancha? I dont know, its totally muddled but tastes gorgeous.

Out of stock at what-cha and I cant find a review here, so I have no idea, but its really good.

ends up being a sweet almost dongfang meiren sweet wood tangy something oolong base. Its really nice. I dont usually like orangey oolongs, this was special though

I dont know much about this apart from the early part of the session was totally lovely. Now, I may be wrong about its taste, everything tastes either odd or amazing when I have a cold.
Often better because my stuffed nose captures a tonne of aroma.

I’m thinking nose plugs might be a thing for tea tasting. ? lol

Anyone with more info on this one, would love to chat about it! I sent Alistair a message asking if he can get more.

Flavors: Orange


its really yancha-y. lovely

Interesting. I can’t remember if I had the Vietnam or Taiwan Gui Fei. Either way, I remember it being pretty good.


I’ve got to get another sample when more comes in – as I said I had a cold and my taste was weird but it was a really nice blend or familiar flavours

Basically loads of Fenghuang, jade oolong & sheng puerh.

90+ is godly

80-90 is something i would buy again.

60-80 ok, but probably more bland or basic in their flavour.

0-60 something tastes wrong with this one.
