Tao Tea Leaf Rice Pu-Er Tuo Cha (Shou)

8.6/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"There's a tantalizing balance between the Nuo mi xiang and the shou which culminates in an endless buffet of rich, rice like aromas and flavours you can just sink into."

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"The value and convenience factors for this tea are tremendous... it lasted me the entire day, which has a lot to say for its stamina. A kind of cooked rice meets birdseed formula that is a strange but winning aroma. The flavor palette shifts over the course of 6+ infusions, from intense pu-er potency to mildly sweet and oak-cask notes."

Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:
"Very interesting, a good clear shot of rice, possibly an actual shot of Saki, strictly in flavour, not in practice. "

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"The liquor darkened to a robust cherry infusion with an earthy-nutty nose, quite similar to genmaicha but without the "suck" factor."

Tao Tea Leaf Golden Monkey

8.4/10  —  6 reviews
Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"While I generally find it hard to rate a Golden Monkey very highly that is without my favorite chocolate note, this one is a stellar exception to that rule. It is a cup of smooth, creamy, rich, caramel deliciousness. Need I say more?"

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"I enjoyed the harmonious manner in which the dryness and sweetness play together, like children lost in a game. "

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"The first infusion is excellent, striking a beautiful balance between caramelized tones and woodier ones. However the subsequent steeps are very dry and bitter. "

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"This is a black tea that doesn't bite on first sip, rather it creeps up on the drinker."

Tao Tea Leaf Da Hong Pao

7.9/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"Smoky syllables foretell a green roasted depth with a bit more bravado to the flavours than power, but cozy in its movement as the prophecy unfolds light and round. "

"This is like the whisky shot of teas."

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"This smokiness is beautifully nuanced and serves to convey other flavor components with class, particularly the wonderful taste of lightly burned caramel."

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"If not quite the epitome of Keemuns, these leaves are definitely a very good example of how generous yet subtle this type of tea can be. "

Teaviews Member: Shaiha Shaiha's review:
"Starts off pleasantly enough but finishes with a bitter aftertaste. A great tea though if you prefer cream and sugar in your cup."

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"It can go toe-to-toe with a Yunnan Gold, and I'd be hard-pressed to declare a victor."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The flavor was a little bit roasty, but primarily sweet in a fruity-caramel-cocoa sort of way."

Tao Tea Leaf Phoenix Dan Cong (Honey Orchid)

7.6/10  —  8 reviews
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"If you enjoy aromatic teas, you won't find many olfactory adventures more spectacular than this."

      8.7/10
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The floral aspects were at once high pitched and also heavy with perfume. I was reminded of roses and yet there was nothing predominantly rosy about the scent. "

      8.5/10
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"So playful, with many twists to its aroma and mild flavour, the tea combines honeysuckle florals with spring greens that are thread together by an oat like nutty hold. "

      7.75/10
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"This tea's flavor is light, and perhaps doesn't compare to that of other, bolder oolongs. But for those who may tend toward a milder flavor - perhaps even white tea fans - may take well to this specific oolong. It's a gentle, subtle, calming tea, and suits that purpose quite nicely. "

Teaviews Member: Chelsy Chelsy's review:
"Serve it hot. Orchid and honey both play along on a tea that is living on the boarder of black and oolong. "

"The fruitiest Dan Cong I've tried to date: apricot, orange, pineapple, mango and raspberry notes all compete for attention. "

"The dry tea has a pleasing nose to it however once brewed this oolong is pretty bland."

Tao Tea Leaf Iron Goddess (Tie Guan Yin) Top Grade

6.9/10  —  7 reviews
Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"Delicate at its heart, the tea teases with dewy, meadow aromas with a greener Tie Guan Yin air while it romances most in the cilantro like butteriness of the aftertaste where all the elements take hold."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This is probably something that would appeal to those that like delicate white teas, but personally I was hoping for a bit more flavor."

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"This is a nice, quality oolong with a subtle, playful, and tasty flavor profile. I've been in an oolong funk for a few months now, but this tea has revived my tastes for them."

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"This is a more-than-passable oolong with a lot of character on the initial run. It doesn't quite lend itself to a gaiwan prep, however."
