Tea Joint’s Taiwanese GABA Grape Oolong has flavours that like to play hide and seek. Roasted cherries and fresh appels take turns in showing themselves.
ANMO’s Wuyi Yancha Tieluohan is a creamy and sweet Zhengyan Cha. At some point, it was almost like eating strawberry ice cream.

Wu Dong Mi Lan Xiang is a tea that combines bitterness and sweetness. The flavours change from bitter in the beginning to an exotic sweetness at the end.
Thetea.pl’s Songboling Roasted Jin Xuan Gui Fei is a tea that just rolls down your throat. Flavours of roasted and buttery honey with a sweetness in the finish.
Mountain Stream Teas’ Old Master Dong Ding is a tea that offers different flavours each infusion. Roasted honey, subtle caramel and a fruity sweetness.
The 26 Hour Roast Milan Maocha from white2tea’s March 2019 tea club is deep. Warm honey in combination with a fruity and floral sweetness.
The 2018 Red Water Oolong from The Tea Guru is a highly oxidised tea from Taiwan. It combines buttery maltiness and sweetness with floral notes in between.
Wen Shan Bao Zhong is a green oolong tea from Taiwan. It’s a crossbreed between a fresh green and a floral oolong as it offers the best of both worlds.
Lu Yan Xiang or magnolia flower fragrance is a Dan Cong oolong tea from Chaozhou Province. The buttery magnolias will take you to faraway flower gardens.
The Makinohara Benifuki oolong is a tea that is unlike any other oolong tea I have drunk before. It’s a green oolong with a vegetal flavour profile in combination with floral notes.
I tasted the Zhang Ping Shui Xian Floral, which is an unusual oolong tea that was pressed into small bricks and I was pleasantly surprised by the combination of floral sweetness and honey.
A second Flush Darjeeling oolong tea that tastes like a black tea with a slice of lemon. Darjeeling Gopaldhara Maharaja is an interesting tea that offers a combination of pleasant flavours.
