Canton Tea Co. Big Red Robe Oolong

9.3/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"on taste, that smoke transitioned to something with a fruit-floral center more in line with a high altitude oolong."

Vintage Tea Co. Da Hong Pao Wuyi Rock Oolong

9.2/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"This offering is not cheap but it’s worth the splurge for tea drinkers that are not faint of heart. If you like a rugged, smoky cup, with lots of extreme contrasts, this oolong is for you!"

JING Tea Organic Bohea Lapsang Supreme Black Tea

9/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"This tea asks to be treated with caution in terms of steep times but one is rewarded with an expertly crafted tea. The smoothness of the smoky notes and the creamy texture are truly exceptional for a Lapsang."

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"The taste is remarkable - far superior to that of any Lapsang I have encountered to date. There is almost a creaminess to it, to accompany, complement and offset the smokiness inherent to the tea."

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"Robust but not over the top, it's definitely a treat for those who like heavily roasted oolongs. It features an excellent balance of toasted grains, dark cocoa and stone fruit. Recommended! "

Adagio Tea Artisan Comfort Collection

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"A great gift box for introducing friends to the finer world of loose leaf tea. It provides a nice variety across the tea spectrum, and no fancy infusers are required. From there, once they get hooked after 30+ cups of "real" tea, then they can delve into all the better loose leaf gadgetry and wide variety of teas the world over."

Vintage Tea Company Traditional Lapsang Souchong

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"Smoky with finesse, the pine smoke doesn’t obliterate the flavour of the leaves. The latter's sweet, robust base is a perfect match. Very enjoyable!"

Norbu Tea 2008 Yi Wu Mountain Bamboo Roasted Pu-Erh Tea

8.4/10  —  2 reviews
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"The differences between the early steepings and the final cup are rewarding and well worth exploring here. This makes a great tea to explore for a few hours, although for a seasoned Pu-Erh expert, it may be a bit tame."

"A very approachable puerh for Oolong fans, puerh virgins, and tea newbies, but appreciable by pretty much anyone."

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"This is earthy and you can taste a touch of the roastedness. However, there are still plenty of floral notes and a distinct peachiness."

Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"Unmistakably a rock tea from its roasty mineral depth, but the tea brings its own spunk with an amusing sweet and sour bite. "

Canton Tea Co. Traditional Shui Xian

7.9/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"Not too unlike other high-quality oolongs - specifically Dan Congs or Da Hong Paos - that I've enjoyed, Canton Tea's Traditional Shui Xian is sure to please any fan of top-quality oolong teas."

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"Light, sparkling, and lively, this is a delicious and unique oolong that I have no hesitation in recommending to others. However these teabags are not practical and rather expensive. A much better value for the money is to buy this tea loose. "

Teaviews Member: Laura Laura's review:
"While I don't generally consider myself a fan of Wu Yi oolongs in general, and all the buzz surrounding their weight loss claims rather annoys me, Andao is a source that I trust so I gave this one a shot."

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"A solid Wuyi rock oolong, this tea provides long lasting roasted barley and cocoa flavours. It’s not as subtle or intricate as others of its kind but for those who like bittersweet flavours, it’s a good bet."

"Hinting of a blend, it’s a warming cup of walnut bark, a bit unripe in its ebb, that is tamer but tasty and just as warm on one’s wallet."

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"This tea is enjoyable, especially where the tart berry notes and the stamina of the leaves are concerned, but somewhat lacking in depth. It strikes me as a good everyday kind of tea for someone who's starting to experiment with roasted oolongs. "

JING Great Red Cloak Oolong

6.3/10  —  3 reviews
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The tea was very fragrant, yet not overly floral. This tea has a clean light-bodied taste. If I had to break down the flavor composition, I would say it is one part nutty, one part earthy, and one part floral, although the floral leans on the fruity (peachy) side."

Teasatia Da Hong Pao

6/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"As Da Hong Pao teas go, this particular one seems to be at the bottom of the list for me. That said, any Big Red Robe is going to outshine most other oolongs. But if I were seeking out a replenishment, unfortunately Teasatia's offering would not be my first choice."
