|Regarding the comment above, I do not believe this tea is fake. It looks aged but not excessively burnt, and the flavour brews out very strongly to give a strong tasting dark oolong tea. For me it was just a bit rough and not as rounded as da hong pao.|
|´Tis a fake. Old Wuyi tea should brew out more easily and tastes deeper, yet everyone´s saying this tea does not brew well unless you use tons of leaves and tastes insipid. And I smell burnt smell. My verdict? Bad quality Shui Xian with excessive toasting to mask it as an "old" tea. Shame on you, Tea Spring. I liked most of the other teas I ordered, but this is fake. An expert I know said the same thing.|
|For such old tea I really expected more.It´s good but you better try beidou N1.It´s similar to this but taste is stronger.|
|A very good aged tea. The initial taste is woody and slightly bitter but it has a very nice minty sweet after-taste.|
|I rather would wish they would come is scahels rather than one packing, but overall its very cool to drink this tea.
|Nothing too special here. It reminds me a bit of kukicha - roasted stems from Japanese green tea that provide a subtle, chocolate aroma and taste.|
|Very good tea but not if you really like a green one:)|
|Nice tea with a slight woody taste. The recommend 1 minute brewing time is a bit long in my opinion.|
|Very nice tea. It does require more leafs then my usual brew|
|This I think is an affordable and delicious aged Yan Cha. It does require more leaf than new Yan Cha, but the flavor is pleasing in the evening. A great tea for relaxing.|
|A mellow meditative variation on a theme of WuYi Mountain...
Is this a hint of the Wu Yi Yan Cha Bing ten years on ?|
|The tea has a wood-sy, earthy smell. It may be a good buy for somebody who likes pu-erhs.|
|I think this is a good - maybe great - tea that can be easily mis-brewed. Don’t know how the other reviewer handled it, but the first time I brewed the tea I filled a Yixing pot about half way. The brew was Ok but soon became insipid. But currently I am drinking it after almost completely filling the small pot (100+ ml) with leaves and, gongfu style, brewing it for roughly 45 seconds and then an extra 15 seconds for each additional brew. The cup is bold and good - it is an aged oolong worth trying, I think. And the flavor I have with each cup is: mint! Nice chi, too - that is building with the tea. Last through many infusions. Nice tea.|
|this tea is earthy and slightly plesently smokey. ten good extractions. the tea is not as amazing as i thought it would be however it is an exalint example of a wu yi. i recomend it.|
