There are 2 types of teas I had at Chinese restaurants and really liked. One was a dark honey color, and one was a yellowish color. Both fragrant. I can't describe them well. I was trying to figure out which teas they were, and I read many forum threads.
Then I bought few types. First I tried Oolong, stupidly, not realizing it was such a dark tea. Then I tried Jasmine Oolong. It is somewhat similar, but different than either one I wanted. I do like it, but not quite as much as the two I seek. Then I tried Chrysanthemum flowers and soaked in water. It was nothing like what I expected or wanted. Third, I tried Ti Kuan Yin. It is good too, but only marginally similar to the darker tea I wanted.
I know they often mix together teas. Any suggestions on what other teas I should try?
Then comes the hard part. I am trying to find organic teas. I don't care about it being officially labeled organic, but I am worried about pesticide residue and possibly other bad processing/storage practices. It looks to me like there is no organic form of many Asian teas. Is that true? If so, I may have to switch and learn to like some organic tea I can find. I seem to like floral teas and nothing too dark. Green tea just seems OK to me. I could probably learn to like it.
