|Rou Gui has all of the characteristics that come to mind when I think of oolong tea. My exposure to oolong varieties is narrow.
Rou Gui is not as floral as Tie Guan Yin (another oolong).
Rou Gui can easily be my "standard" for this type of tea.
|It´s the first time I´m tasting the Rou Gui Oolong, and I´m quite pleased. It has a very sweet smell in the first cups, but the taste is stronger than Dong Ding, with some smokey notes. The sweetness returns in the aftertaste, which is quite long and pleasant.|
|I had apparently not done my homework properly on this one because I was surprised at the amounts of cinnamon notes in it. I´m not usually superfond of cinnamon. Still, I didn´t find it an unpleasant amount of cinnamon, so I´ll definitely drink it, but it was not what I was expecting, really.|

|Very impressive tea.
I have been a fan of Dan Cong tea for many years, this is an excellent quality tea.|
|An excellent refreshing brew, long lasting (more than 5 bews per pot). Deep rich flavour.
Excellent, highly recommended.
Will buy again.|
|The last time I purchased Rou Gui, it seemed to have a bit more of a kick to it. This batch seemed a bit dull, though by no means flavorless. As far as Wuyi rock oolongs go, this one is pretty unique. Worth a try.|
|Wonderful aroma for the first 3 infusions and pleasant flavor flavor stays for long time after finishing drinking.|
|This is one of the most unique Oolongs I have ever had and for that reason I gave it 5 stars. Great wonderful aroma and cinnamon type taste that dances on the pallet. A great tea tasting experience. |
|Roi Gui is a very unique-tasting twisted-leaf oolong. You may want to try a sample of this before you go out and buy a bunch of it. I enjoyed it, but probably won´t be buying it again.|
|Good enough, I can taste Rou Gui, it´s so weak though, you´ll have some difficulty trying to identify what your drinking.|
|well this tea is like leather in taste-but I say but and if you´ll add charcoal filtered water to it giving more tea-it actually tastes most delightful-it has such a nice name Yunnan Gold it would be pits to discard this tea-so just add water til it does taste the very best-you will agree with this technique that it does make it an exquisite tea ! as I do- Ben|
|Very unique floral character, earthy, with a sweetness that fades to foral. Different from many oolongs in its aroma and its lasting quality.|
|I think of this Rou Gui as a good everyday Wu Yi oolong. It has a well-rounded and robust quality if you use enough leaves. The cassia fragrance, which is similar to cinnamon, is faint and subtle. I find this Rou Gui exhibits many of the classic oolong qualities one expects in a Wu Yi, such as earthiness, mineral taste and aromatics. A good Rou Gui.|
|This is easily the best Rou Gui I´ve ever tasted. Smooth, loaded with flavor, excellent.|
|I love the unique flavor of this tea. It has a thicker feel in the mouth and its a great winter tea. The color of the brew is beautiful as well|
|I really enjoy this tea. A lovely full flavour, more rounded than da hong pau but with the darker flavours associated with darker oolongs. This seems to me to be a decent quality Rou Gui. Recommended.|
|Typical beefy, woody, smokey Wuyi style. I didn´t find the cassia notes associated with this cultivar. Still, it is a good example of this style of oolong.|
|strong earthy flavor with hints of floral as most of these types of oolongs are, but nothing paticularly outstanding|
|To tell the truth, I have expected something like that (according appearance on pictures) even though I´m used to another Rou Gui sold in the Czech Republic which tastes like wonderful cocoa cake. It has very intensive taste, so Rou Gui sold by Teaspring was for me a new experience. Certainly it is not bad tea, but I know more interesting one. But try it you cannot loose! It is good to know about existing such Rou Gui. Jiri Holoubek, Vsetaty, The Czech Republic|
|this is a good quality oolong. for the price its a good deal. |
|Pas le plus grand Rou Gui que j’ai dégusté. Celui-ci est assez commun.|
|slightly floral, good quality , make infushions shorter for this tea |
| Cassis ,fruits rouges..aucune amertume..; bonne puissance aromatique|
|good tea, little mild for my taste, but still rich. In my opinion its dificult to identify the classic cassia taste asociated to rou gui|
|I love the aroma of this tea. After having it in the morning for about a week, I have a hard time starting the day with out it. I let it infuse for longer than most other teas as it only seems to improve the taste.|
|mild taste, less pronounced than other Wuyi. Looses taste quickly when brewed gong fu style. too expensive for this quality|
|Wonderful aroma, bit pricey|
|Very good Rou gui with light cinnamon flavour and full body.
Watch steeping times and enjoy multiple infusions !|
|Perfect tea for GongFu. |
|A good quality seasonal Rou Gui, nothing special. Its a little pricey but the quality is good. It will make a good tea to enjoy.|
