The Tea’s

The guys at iTeaWorld sent me a selection of Oolong Teas and Black Tea’s

The first thing I noticed was the quality of the packaging, it had a texture and the visually looked very classy…I instantly looked forward to seeing what was inside and trying them all.

Oolong Tea DeHongPao

Step into the world of Oolong Tea De Hong Pao, where simplicity meets captivating flavours. This easy brew and fruity aroma, gave it a light, pleasant character.

Brewing this tea was a breeze. The leaves unfurled gracefully as they steeped, producing a nice gentle amber hue. Whether you’re a seasoned tea enthusiast or a newcomer, the straightforward brewing process ensures a satisfying experience for all.

Upon my first inhale, I was greeted by a subtle fruity fragrance. The delicate blend of floral and fruity notes made each sip an aromatic adventure, making it an ideal companion for both lazy mornings and chilled afternoons.
In conclusion, Oolong Tea De Hong Pao is a lovely tea that captures the essence of simplicity and complexity in one elegant brew. 



Wild Souchong Black Tea is a delightful experience with its easy brewing process and captivating strong aroma.

The bold, deep taste of this tea surpasses the oolong variety, leaving a rich aftertaste on the palate.

While it was enjoyable, I must admit that my heart still belongs to oolong tea. Despite its stronger qualities, I find myself drawn to the familiar and comforting taste of oolong.

Nonetheless, Wild Sao Chong Black Tea is a worthy exploration for those seeking a more robust and intense tea experience.



LAPSANG SOUCHONG black tea is known for its distinctive smoky flavor and aroma. The result is a rich, dark brew that carries a pronounced campfire-like essence.⁠

The Lapsang Souchong in their Classic Tea Selection and is a non-smoked version, which uses the modern techniques of souchong black tea. The tea undergoes charcoal roasting, so it can give a roasted flavor.

Upon sipping LAPSANG SOUCHONG, the initial taste for me was a nice slightly smokey, and slightly strong flavour with very very subtle fruitiness.

LAPSANG SOUCHONG’s boldness makes it a great choice for those who appreciate bold flavors and a departure from conventional black teas. It can be enjoyed on its own or paired with hearty foods, making it a versatile addition to one’s tea collection.

While the potent smokiness might not suit every taste preference, LAPSANG SOUCHONG undoubtedly stands as a distinctive and memorable tea choice that offers an adventure for the senses, and for me this one is a solid 4 out of 5.



DAHONGPAO oolong tea presents a remarkable and nuanced drinking experience that captures the essence of traditional Chinese teas. Hailing from the Wuyi Mountains, this oolong is often referred to as “Big Red Robe” for its historical significance and exceptional quality.

The tea’s complex flavor profile gives the drinker a hint of floral and mineral notes with each sip.

Visually, DAHONGPAO’s dark, twisted leaves and amber infusion mirror its robust taste. The tea leaves can be infused multiple times, with each steeping revealing different facets of its character.

Regarded as one of China’s most prestigious teas, DAHONGPAO embodies both cultural heritage and refined craftsmanship.

For me this had a lovely aroma, I got subtle oaky and a floral note that I couldn’t put my finger on but this was currently the winning tea for me.

A solid 5/5


Minnan Narcissus oolong tea

Minnan Narcissus oolong tea enchants with its delicate and captivating essence, offering a glimpse into the artistry of Taiwanese tea cultivation. Grown in the Minnan region, this oolong variety, often referred to as “Jin Xuan,” boasts a unique and fragrant profile.

I let this steep and it had a more yellowish tone and gave off a floral aroma.

The initial sip gave me just an ok taste, nothing strong and not much aftertaste.

For me, the floral notes and aroma were a bit much for my taste, but I am sure if you are a floral tea lover you would enjoy this very much.

For me a 2 out of 5


Fenghuang Dancong oolong tea 

After trying a few in one day I waited a few days then sat down with this one.

Fenghuang Dancong oolong tea captivates the senses with its intricate layers of flavor and aroma, transporting tea lovers to the vibrant orchards of Phoenix Mountain in China’s Guangdong province. Known for its single-origin production, this tea offers a rich and unparalleled experience.

Upon infusion, Fenghuang Dancong gave me a fruity floral aroma which was nice.

My first sip was just ok as I got an instant slight fruity taste which calms down just as fast.

Visually, the tightly twisted leaves of Fenghuang Dancong are a testament to the careful handcrafting of this tea. Its amber infusion mirrors the warmth of its taste.

I really enjoyed this one and would happily have this again and again…and this is another one I am giving a solid 5 out of 5


Tie Guanyin

After having a great tea to start my day I decided to try another one from what I was sent.

Tie Guanyin, the revered oolong tea known as the Iron Goddess of Mercy, offers a captivating experience that beautifully balances tradition and innovation. Hailing from China’s Fujian province, this tea boasts a legacy that spans centuries.

Upon steeping, I noticed the slightly green tone to the water so I was very interested in how this would taste.

The initial sip for me was very unique as it sounds strange it tasted green…like leaves.

I tried this again and again taking sips and seeing if it would grow on me as I know this is a very popular tea but I just couldn’t really enjoy this one sadly.

Overall it was just so-so for me, it had a subtle leaf aroma and taste to it, and it an acquired taste for me 3/5



I recently had the pleasure of trying YINGDE BLACK TEA. To put it simply, it’s a tea that stays true to its roots, resembling a standard black tea in both taste and aroma.

The flavour profile was undeniably reminiscent of classic black teas – robust, earthy, and slightly astringent. It provided that comforting, familiar sip that many tea lovers appreciate. The aroma, too, carried the traditional notes of black tea, evoking a sense of warmth and cosiness.

While YINGDE BLACK TEA offers a pleasant tea-drinking experience, it falls slightly short of some of the more remarkable teas I’ve encountered from the massive selection I got sent. There’s nothing inherently wrong with it; it just didn’t possess that distinctive character or unique twist that sets some teas apart.

In conclusion, YINGDE BLACK TEA is a respectable choice for those seeking a straightforward and reliable black tea option.



My recent encounter with TIE GUANYIN, an oolong tea renowned for its complexity, left me with mixed feelings.

The first impression was the leafy aroma that wafted from the brewing cup. It was distinctly vegetal, carrying hints of fresh greens and a touch of floral notes. This aromatic profile piqued my curiosity and set high expectations for what was to come.

However, the taste of TIE GUANYIN turned out to be unexpectedly thin. Despite the promising aroma, the flavour was delicate and lacked the robustness I had anticipated.

It’s worth noting that tea preferences can be highly subjective, and some may appreciate TIE GUANYIN for its understated charm. While it didn’t quite align with my personal taste for bolder oolongs, it still possessed a certain elegance and grace. Perhaps, with different brewing parameters or a refined palate, this tea might reveal more layers and complexities that I didn’t fully explore during my tasting.

In conclusion, TIE GUANYIN is a tea with a leafy aroma that promises much but delivers a more delicate taste. It’s a tea worth trying, especially if you appreciate subtlety in your tea-drinking experience.


Final Thoughts…

I’m thoroughly impressed with the quality of the teas I’ve sampled. Admittedly, I’m more of a coffee enthusiast, but a select few from this collection have won me over.

It’s taken me some time to savour each one because I wanted to fully indulge in the experience, rather than rush through multiple cups in a day.

Overall, it’s been a delightful journey, and I highly recommend these teas to fellow enthusiasts. I still have a few varieties left to explore, so stay tuned on my Instagram for my upcoming reviews. In sum, these teas offer something to delight every palate.
