- Bai Ji Guan (2009) - light roast
Suprising flavor - we finally identified it as stir fried and slightly burnt cabbage. we were split down the middle on wether that was yummy or not in a tea. I loved it
- Imperial Meizhan (2008) - light roast
Beautiful aroma similar to a lightly roasted baozhong, pleasant but somewhat unremarkable taste also reminiscent of that style of teas.
- Tie Luo Han (2008) - light roast
My top pick of the bunch, a really nice balanced tea with wonderful complexity, delightful aroma, robust mouth and lovely aftertaste.
- Premioum Rou Gui (2009)
Very good Rou Gui for the price IMO, everything you would want and expect. However the charcoal is still a bit to the front, I would recommend letting this one rest a few months or more before drinking. But it's clear this one has the goods.
- Lao Cong Shui Xian (2008 old bush)
I've grown increasingly board of Shui Xian lately. This one is no exception. I suppose its a good one.. bleh. Still, obviously good quality/price ratio here.
- Eight Immortals (2008 organic)
Exciting and bold tea! This was the one I kept coming back to and saying 'wow, interesting'.
The online experience was seamless, the teas were well packed and shipped quickly. The prices very reasonable for the quality. Seven Cups continues to be a go to vendor for me, is it surprising why?
