From Imperial Teas of Lincoln

For the first time ever we have purchased the ‘First Rank’, champion of champion teas from the annual competition. Its heady perfume has an almost ever changing aroma that flits from honey to peach to alpine flowers in a breath. It is a perfectly balanced cup of all that one wishes to find in an ‘Oriental Beauty’. Sweet, perfectly ripe fruit flavour, floral fragrance and a long lasting aftertaste. The First Rank of Oriental Beauty tea from Miaoli County prize is awarded to just 10 Jin, or 600g of tea. The tea garden is located in Tong Luo township(銅鑼鄉),and the tea farmer’s name is Tzen Yi-Lian(曾義樑). The competition teas are awarded marks by Taiwan’s top tea masters using the following standard. 30% of the marks are given to the colour of the infusion, 30% to the flavour, 30% to the ‘throat rhyme’ (after taste), and 10% to the leaf appearance. We hope you enjoy the unique opportunity to try this special tea. We feel privileged to stock it.

Well, this is the tea that pushed all my other scores down 15%.

I am in no way a professional taster, have been drinking ‘proper’ tea for 2 years, and this is the nicest cup of anything hot i have ever had.

Trying to describe the flavour is hard, because its changes, every mouthful is different, and after every mouthful the flavour stays in your mouth and changes.

The main aroma is of a type of cinnamon that I have never experienced before, it is heaven. woody flavours and fresh sweet astringency that is perfect. some kind of sweet floral taste and it lingers on the tongue..

So completely balanced and a joy to drink. makes me a happy bunny

only reason it didnt get 100 is that I had to make a tea fund just to afford it, and once i bought 100g it disappeared from the website. limited.

changed my whole perception of tea.

Have you tried it gongfu style?


im doing 45 second steeps as we speak, but i dont have gonfu set


Another thing I love about this tea is that its assertive with its flavour. I am not searching for a taste I like within the complexity, instead it just gives it to me, mixed with the aroma. ‘Here you go, this sip is xxxxxxx’ and its always nice.


Awesome. You don’t need gongfu set . I mean it’s nice to have Gaiwan but if you take 5g , put it in steeper if you have in a cup and short steeps like 5/7/10sec etc.
5g for 100ml 195F


ok, ill try that next! like I said im new to oolong, and literally saved up in a piggy bank, I thought, well I must at least try a good one to see what all the fuss is about. Now im an addict


trying it 5/7/10 secs as you suggested. it still has the lovely flavour and aroma, and the taste seems to change more in my mouth, different flavours every few seconds. lovely


Yay. Glad you decided to try. It’s not as complicated as it seems. I’m gongfu all Chinese and Taiwanese teas. I have a better control of it by not getting bitter or astringent. And new flavors with each steep ;)
