Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"The tea was a light yellow in color and had a rich, toasty stone fruit fragrance. . . The aroma carried over well into the flavor: rich, smooth, toasty, with definite fruit notes. The finish had the same notes, and lingered well on the tongue. "

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"I can see why this type of oolong lends well to a Gongfu-style approach. It colors and flavors quickly on splashdown, and each subsequent steep differs sharply from the last."

Life in a Teacup An Xi Tie Guan Yin Oolong (Traditional Charcoal Roast)

8.5/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Shaiha Shaiha's review:
"This oolong rolls over your tongue and leaves behind the tastes of pear and hazelnut. The aftertaste is lingering and is both drying and sweet. And it leaves you craving for more."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The floral component, perhaps best described as leaning towards lilac, is the most readily available flavor. The flavor is smooth and light and well-suited for any time of day. "

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"Smell and taste were medium-bodied smokiness, but not overwhelmingly forest-fiery like some other roasted varieties."

"This is a very impressive green, and something a bit out of the ordinary, in my experience. Is it endorsement enough that I paused while writing this review to put in an order with Life in Teacup?"

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"While it's somewhat vegetal, it's well balanced and not overly grassy: peach and pear notes mingle harmoniously amongst asparagus and roasted artichoke flavours."

Life In Teacup Yunnan Golden Bud

8.3/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The tea did deliver the flavors I seek out in a good Yunnan- caramel sweetness and maltiness. However, the lighter body was not that appealing to me. "

Life in Teacup Dong Ding Cui Yu Oolong Competition Grade IV

7.9/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"The first thing that I noticed about the cup were some nice floral notes, but Dong Ding tends to be a bit more dimensional than just some fancy floral. It has just the right touch of roastedness to it---enough to add interest but not so much as to cross the line into super smokey."

      8/10
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"The combination of fire, floral and vegetal notes lend a hint of caramelized sweetness to the aroma that is ever so appetizing. The savoury taste is even more engaging followed by the light floral aftertaste of lilac and carnations, despite a short finish that I would have loved to linger longer."

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"An engaging, complex and constantly evolving tea, it's well worth the price, especially given the number of infusions that can be had from the leaves. Something lovers of floral oolongs should investigate."

      5/10
Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"Slightly drying without being bitter and intensely flavourful, this is clearly a good quality Dan Cong. It should please those who appreciate pouchongs: it's clearly got a roasted dimension to it's flavour profile while retaining a savoury quality that is closer to green teas."
