Simpson & Vail Vietnam Imperial Oolong

8.2/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Emma Emma's review:
"Simpson and Vail lives up to its reputation this tea is close to rivaling my favorite oolong of all time, and nothing has ever compared to my formosa nut oolong!!"

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"Wonderfully fragrant, good tasting infusion after infusion, and complex in flavor with strong creamy and floral components...this is a tea I would be sure to place on my order form at Simpson and Vail. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This is a light-bodied oolong that is predominantly floral in its flavor, but it also has a subtle buttery-smooth flavor to it as well. Being light and uplifting, this tea seems perfect for a late afternoon cup. "

Simpson & Vail Green Pear

8/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Jenn Jenn's review:
"The blend is good and the flavor of pear actually makes an appearance which is so often not the case in pear flavored teas."

Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"Yet again, Simpson & Vail's flavouring is spot on, and this time the tea itself comes through very effectively."

"Whoever mixed this batch of Green Pear needs to be pat on the back because the balance of green tea and pear is just perfect. "

Simpson & Vail African Outback

7.5/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"The cup is good sans milk or prepared latte style so if you are one that takes milk in your tea, then you might experiment with this blend."

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The tea is naturally sweet and very full bodied. It's caffeine free so you can enjoy a cup at any hour. It seems like it would be heavenly iced and it's delightful hot. It even has a sort of dessert-y goodness to it."

Simpson & Vail Vietnam Imperial Oolong

7.1/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"This is one of those rare oolongs that I actually preferred the first infusion best. I love that buttery creaminess that was present when the cup was still at hotter temps."

Teaviews Member: Steven Steven's review:
"Pleasant enough, light oolong, which tastes much like a simple, not-too-flashy green."

Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"If they reworked the blend and gave it a base tea that could hold its own, I'd definitely buy some."

"Overall, the whole tea isn’t bad. I didn’t detest it, but was sad it was lacking the good quality I wanted it to have."

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"However, the ultimate downfall of this blend is the black tea base. I do feel that this blend could work as a black tea, but with a better base. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This tea has a readily identifiable fruity sweetness to it, although I am not sure that it is a natural fruit flavor. It certainly smells and tastes like kiwi and watermelon flavored candies, however. "

Teaviews Member: Christine Christine's review:
"It's okay, and I'd certainly buy it again, but it's not real high on my purchase list."

Simpson & Vail Lemon Ginger

6/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"On one hand, the lemon and ginger flavors are wonderful, and it is clear from visual inspection of the tea that Simpson & Vail did not skimp on the addition of these. On the other hand, however, the black tea used as the base appears to be of very low quality, perhaps a step or two above tea fannings. "

5.9/10  —  6 reviews
Teaviews Member: Kari Kari's review:
"On the blacker side of oolongs with some malty flavors and a long finish."

"This is a very different oolong, and I think your view of it would depend mostly on your personal preferences."

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"An African Oolong with some bitterness, but mellows out in the third steeping to a better cup. Decent, but not the best on the market."

Teaviews Member: Steven Steven's review:
"This is not the tea for me, because though it is supposed to be an oolong, it seems more like an average "black tea.""

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
" I found this tea at its best when using more leaf and I would definitely recommend preparing it that way. I was glad to have tried it guywan style, as it yielded a different flavor that keeps me curious to try more."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"Although this was, by name, an oolong, it was very different from any other oolong I have sampled. With its crisp and vegetal flavor, this is a tea that I would have pegged for a Darjeeling."
