This tea is the most wonderful milk Oolong I have ever tried! Definitely buying more!
Fall 23 is slightly less buttery than winter 22, but has a really soft and rich complexity and sweetness. I've found this tea to be a reliably excellent product! One of my favourite teas, and feel very lucky to be able to get it in the UK!
I am loving the Spring 2023 Jin Xuang. While the fragrance is not as intense as high mountain oolongs I have tried, it is still very aromatic. Really pleasant sweet fragrance, like a fresh honeysuckle blossom without being perfume-like. I also got notes that reminded me of pancakes with light honey and butter. The flavor is so smooth and clean. The vegetal notes are present but mild and sweet. There is just enough astringency to give it a nice bite but it is not overpowering at all.
I feel that this tea competes very favorably with much more expensive handpicked high elevation teas, and it is nice to have a great affordable option from lower-elevetation farms that require less manual labor.
This is my favorite tea here. It's an oolong on the green side of the spectrum. It has the fresh, pure taste of a green tea but with no bitterness at all. It has a silky smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel which you can get a sense of just from pouring it. Every sip is delicious, and makes you want more. It's also just as tasty hot, cold, or iced. Tea perfection!
Disclaimer: I'm a long time high mountain oolong snob. The summer 2023 Alishan High Mtn Oolong was fabulous. The year and season are crucial. I noticed less than 5 stars on some of the other years. No way to know until you try. This one is definitely worth your time and money!
I thoroughly enjoyed the Taiwan Tea Flight Pack.
It's a wonderful selection to explore the five distinct teas, which really highlights the diversity of Taiwanese tea.
It's not just about taste; it offers great insight into Taiwan's tea culture and cultivation methods. An enriching experience for both my palate and knowledge.
I didn’t expect that the package was actually shipped from Taiwan. I have only tried a few so far, and they are all delicious. The selection offers great variety. The taste and aroma remind me of home. Thank you Eco Cha!
This tea maintains the lightness of Shan Lin Xi, with a nice roasted finish. A perfect combination, giving it a bracing feel with out the heaviness that some roasted teas have.
Great tea with a memorable aroma and taste. Perfect tea for breakfast with notes of baked goods. Good for multiple steeps and then make into an iced tea.
My first purchases from Eco-Cha were: Eco Farm Heavy Roasted Oolong, LUGU COMPETITION DONG DING, AND ROASTED TSUI YU OOLONG.
I did a side-by-side comparison of the three, steeping 4 grams of each tea in 10 oz of just below boiling water. I let them all cool slightly because I can’t recognize the flavors at too high a temperature. I also tasted each when cooled to room temperature.
Here are my observations:
Lugu Competition Dond Ding:
Subtle woody aroma. Full body, rich, full mouth feel, very bold flavors. Smoothest of the 3. As it cooled, floral oolong notes came out.
Eco Farm Heavy Roasted Oolong:
Very similar in aroma to Competition. Bold woody taste. Mouth feel is narrower, it doesn’t explode like the competition. It’s a little more astringent. When cooled, floral notes weren’t present.
ROASTED TSUI YU OOLONG:
WOODY AROMA WITH DEFINITE Spicy notes. The woody taste is more subtle, balanced out by other flavors like licorice, cardamon, and vanilla. All in all, more nuanced. The only drawback was it was a
I think my order of preference is; ROASTED TSUI YU OOLONG, COMPETITION, AND FINALLY THE ECO FARM. HOWEVER, THEY WERE ALL EXCELLENT. I WOULDN’T HESITATE TO PURCHASE ANY OF THEM AGAIN.
Been hearing about this company for a while and wanted to try some oolong. Glad this was my first choice! So smooth and now my daily drinker. If you are thinking about buying it, just do it.
Just received my order yesterday and tried the Tsui Yu right away. I love the refreshing greeness of the taste, flavour which is so delicate. Great for drinking it throughout the day,
I only recently have gotten into high quality loose leaf teas. This subscription really helped me discover a wide variety of flavors and styles of tea and how to brew different types. If you are a newbie and don’t know where to start I would definitely recommend subscribing! I also loved the extra samples and tools they provide with every shipment. The amount of tea is more than enough for one. I was able to share my tea tasting experience with friends and family while still having plenty left over for myself every month.
This type of tea has been my favorite since I first visited Taiwan almost two decades ago, and it is rare to find tea of this amazing quality in the US. I love the flavor, color, and aroma of high mountain Alishan oolong and it is what I drink on most days
I'm highly critical of people describing teas as tasting like things such as pastries, but this winter Shan Lin Xi walks the walk. I think someone else described it in an earlier review as feeling like "the Rolls Royce of tea" and I'm inclined to agree. The flavor reminds me of a flaky pastry with almond paste. It's super luxurious and feels like a real treat. It's absolutely delicious and has a pleasant, relatively long-lasting aftertaste.
