This tea was quite good. It rates highly in comparison to other oolongs I have had in this class. There were some subtle chocolate notes and a strong oolong taste that I am not sure I can describe. There was a little bit of bitterness. While I didn’t get tea drunk it was very relaxing. I purchased it locally from the biggest tea store on Long Island (at least in the number of teas biggest), Clipper Ship Tea Company. I am not sure I would buy it again simply because I thought it somewhat overpriced at $12 for 46g of tea. They sell the tea by the number of “cups”, not by weight. It is this one quirk of an otherwise great store with lots of great tea and teaware. They have not website but you can buy their teas over the phone if you want.

I brewed this tea five times in a large gaiwan, about 180ml. I used 7g of leaf. I used 190 degree water. I gave the tea a 10 sec rinse. I then brewed it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 15 sec and 30 sec. There were distinct chocolate notes and that was the main note I identified when I switched from suger to fresh raspberries and honey for steepings three and four. I went back to sugar for the last steeping.

I like this tea a lot but am annoyed that I only realized after I got it home and weighed it that it was only 46g. Had I known the price when I bought it I would probably not have batted an eye.

Allan, thats not expensive for good DHP


It was more that they charge by the cup not telling you how much you get. With some blends a 30 cup package fills a tin, with others not so much. I thought I was getting more than I got because they have a slightly deceptive packaging by selling “30 cups” instead of “4 ounces” or “2 ounces”. If I had been told I was getting less than their usual “30 cups” of tea I would not have been so annoyed. I think the counter girl just accidentally forgot to take off for the packaging and didn’t want to admit it when I called about it.


In other words, they probably added the weight of the packaging, that would bring it up in weight to their usual “30 cup” size.


best DHP, Rou Gui, Bei Dou i tried(not that i tried many, but its just soo good)


Where do you get this Rou Gui Da Hong Pao?


Nevermind, not paying attention


When I was at Clipper Ship Tea they said they are supposed to be getting a 5 yr old loose sheng in and finally Puerh cakes. I bought their last puerh cake about two years ago and it started my on an odyssey. If you get a chance to get their Boychik they may again have Puerh cakes.


Oh, sounds exciting! I will let you know abt my experience with them. I’m so spoiled with online shopping. Cannot recall any negative experience ( knock on wood ;)
i do recommend you Jing Tea shop. i dont think they have sales, ship is flat $5 which is not bad at all.
This dancong is so juicy, lots of resteeps
Tao Tea Leaf , i will wait till end of December, they supposed to have Boxing Day sale like 50% off. Great quality, anything i tried worth every penny.


I get all their emails. They send out periodic sale emails. You might luck into a good sale. I don’t know if you can sign up on Facebook or if you would have to call them. Otherwise, if I see anything interesting I could forward it to you. They have a sale on today and tomorrow. Buy one pack of tea get the next half off. I don’t think you need a coupon for this one.


which shop Allan has a sale? JTS or TTL?
pls send me a link, cant find this promo
