|This tea is one of my favorate as it has such a sweet aroma. The only draw-back it last only for 2 infusions no matter how I try. Accordingly I adjust my use of this tea, brewing new after second infusion..
|This oolong bing provides a very consistent taste. It has a wonderful aroma. The cakes come at a very reasonable price. My one criticism --the latest Wu Yi Yan Cha cake that I received was so dense/compact that I literally had to saw into it with a foot-long serrated knife. Gamey, to say the least! However, once you get it started, this bing can be very rewarding. Recommended as long as you´re willing to put some effort into it.
|I bought my first Wu Yi Yan Cha Bing a while ago, and have almost finished it off. I´d like to hold on to this one for a few years, but I know that I´ll probably cut into it before then -- it´s really a delicious tea.
|The bing looks good and the tea is tasty! I´ll store it a bit longer to see how it develops.
|An excellent oolong tea cake. This one is very affordable. Looking forward to aging it.
|it is a good tea, but probably it would be better in several years.
|Good strong tea. It should mellow out in a few years. I will keep this tea for later.
|This is my third order of 2 cakes each. This tea has become my regular late morning tea and every day I am looking forward to inhale the sweet aroma and to enjoy the flavor. As an oolong it is difficult to compare since it is unique and to me just good. 2 teaspoonful of tea gives me 2 infusions of 250 ml each with water just to boil, steeping each for about 2.5 minutes.
|When I tried the 2008 crop I was not really convinced. Now a year later it has much improved and I really developed a liking for this unique flavor of this oolong. I still keep a 2007 bing.
|I would experiment with some roasting times at around 160-180 degrees-for 20 minutes-or lower temps-this tea is not a great tea-but maybe with some work it could be-Im not sure Ben
|Tasted like pu-erh with a unique sweetness. Would recommend the tea for anyone who likes teas with a powerful taste.
|Might be best to age this, it was good and it was bad.
|Very delicate tea, and then his packaging unique..., I can recommend it as other ones only
|i have to rate this tea for everyone. Very good tea and affordable for the price. Medium roast.. Sweet and smooth after taste.
|This tea being from the wu yi mountains does share a few charcteristicts of oolong tea from wu yi.
|Nice strong flavor, with a sweetness that reminds me of raisins. I like it quite a lot, and will likely order it again.
|Altogether a different oolong tea experience and a rather pleasant one. I had one problem so first, I drunk it like my pu-erhs´ as a night cap. That kept me awake.
|Very interesting product. I am keeping it for further aging.
|Makes good tea to go with dim sum and tastes unmistakably Chinese, but nothing really special.
|lighter than other oolongs but can get bitter, I use less steep time then average
|How cool -- an oolong cake. This has to be brewed right to get the most benefit. I got it right once -- short steeps in a gaiwan, gongfu style -- and it was sweet, chocolatey, very aromatic and not bitter or overpowering. But I tried it again using a glass teapot and I couldn´t get it right. I´ll keep trying. For the price, great tea.
|Great value for money. Nice package. Mouthwatering aroma, good taste. I think, I´m going to buy one more for aging.
|A simple but rich and robust Wu Yi Yan Cha in a good value and easy to transport by horseback Bing. Will it become as good as the Wu Yi Yan Cha 90s ?
|Surprisingly well rounded for the price. A delicious oolong.
|This is my second time ordering this tea. Needless to say (but I´ll say it anyway), I think this is a good tea! One note is that this is an aged tea and so the quality of the tea is supposed to change with its age. However, I did not find this batch of tea is be noticeably different from what I ordered about six months ago. Perhaps six months isn´t long enough for the tea to change its character, and perhaps it´s my poor palate, but it will be interesting to keep trying the tea to see what unfolds.
|Its a little bit strange tea for me because I´ve never tried a tea like that before.
It has a green tea taste but more intense. Generally I liked that tea.
|Very interesting...a wu yi oolong in bing form! As a wu yi it stands on it own nicely, and I look forward to see how well it will age. But it is still worthy of drinking right away.
|It took quite a lot of effort for me to break up this tea! Once I was able to do that, however, I enjoyed ithe tea’s full mouth-feel and slightly earthy aroma. Perhaps this is a good introduction to those looking to taking the plunge into drinking pu-erhs.
|Strong, bracing and well presented. Not the most refined or complex yan cha but certainly worth the price.
Oh, and of course it’s got novelty value as well as a bonus!
|A fine wuyi oolong, dark and deep mellow taste, a little roasted. It’s good that it has a long shelftime. You definitely want to save some for later!
|Great value for money. A good, strong and robust character. Not as complex as some, far more expensive, wuyi oolongs but certainly tasty.
It looks great too!
|An interesting selection.
Never having had this tea, I broke apart my first disk and enjoyed the roasted warmness of this autumny disk and had a few pots before considering a reorder.
The taste is worth the novelty!

|this is the second time i have purchest this product. its a grate tea and its cool to beable to age an oolong. i highly recomend it for the price.
|This tea is excellent. Like a concentrated oolong, with subtle smokey chocolate hints. Very smooth and great depth of flavour. A great deal at this price! Will be ordering more in future.
|Very nice smell but not best taste I ever had. Will surely get better with age.
|Wow! What a pleasant surprise!
Never having tried a "pressed" oolong before, I really didn’t know what to expect.
Firstly, it’s a beautiful disk - engraved with a small landscape of WuYi mountains and characters. Teak coloured with tawny highlights.
And then, there is that intense aroma - warm baking chocolate, sweet and rich.
The tea itself is a deep golden brew, toasty, hazel-nutty and slightly winey. This seems to be a perfect Autumn tea and a good buy, as well.
Following Tea Spring’s brewing suggestions, this bing will last for quite a while!
I think I’ll buy some more!

|grate deal. for the price im buying 3 more today !!!!!!
|I was very pleased with this tea, and the price is excellent. The leaves had a rich cocoa aroma when I put them in a heated gai wan. It was mild, a sweet finish on the tongue, and notes of chocolate. I will be buying more.
|A very sweet, rich oolong in a very interesting package. This is a very solid cake that will yield quite a good amount of tea.
