From The Tea Smith

Roughly translated as Water Sprite, this long leaf beauty comes to us from the famous Fujian province of China. The liquor is a beautiful light amber in the cup. This tea is fired a bit more than others and imparts a slight sweetness along with a lingering sweetness. A very good value, this tea complements Asian foods quite nicely.

This was none too special. The leaf was mostly BoP; I could spot few whole leaves. The flavor was diminished. I was not able to finish a gong fu session with this. The leaves carried a burnt oak and sweet grape aroma. I warmed them up and this scent became sweet like s’mores over a campfire. The flavor however was none too sweet. It was a bland non-textured experience. I could feel a slight headache coming on as well. This just ins’t something I’d jump on getting more of. Lately, I’ve been craving smoky and dark oolongs, but I just can’t seem to find one that is satisfactory… I guess my search continues.

Have you tried any Tao Tea Leaf Yancha?


I haven’t tried their Yancha before, but I’ve tried most of their roasted oolongs. I just got a few others of theirs to try for the review program.

Well… I’m a lil disappointed because the person behind the counter told me this was closer to the green tea spectrum then black, but he was wrong. This definitely has properties closer to black. Amber color. Twig, slight hsy and subtle sweet flavors. Definitely a black oolong. It’s not that I don’t like them I just much prefer green oolong.
