    Un tea per ogni momento è ottimo per la mattina ma anche per accompagnare uno spuntino salato.

    Tommaso (4/2/2021)
    This is a complex, bright and intense tea. It is great both in gong fu cha and in western tea style - great find!

    Marika (5/14/2020)
    Sichuan Gongfu pleases my palate to no end. I love it both Western and Gongfu style.

    Marika (12/27/2019)
    Without fault this tea delights me. Not a first review. Not last. I love its chocolatey viscous liquor.

    Marika (12/27/2019)
    A very nice and smooth tea for early mornings. It has a nice kick to it.

    Thomas (5/7/2019)
    This is a consistently excellent tea that works both for morning and evening. It is smooth and velvety as ever. Favourite tea!

    Marika (4/3/2019)
    Bellissimo nel suo aspetto e profumatissimo, eccellente per accompagnare in qualsiasi momento snack dolci o salati.

    Tommaso (2/27/2019)
    This has an earthy quality: a bit of fresh grain taste, or mushroom. Not a typical tea for the USA. A nice alternative to an Indian black tea, being gentler yet still providing caffiene pickup.

    Uzi (2/11/2019)
    This is the tea I come back to time and again - it keeps surprising me with newfound notes, new facet of smoothness, ever present substance - an excellent tea!

    Marika (12/2/2018)
    I really enjoy this tea due to its unique chocolatey quality. I rarely re-order teas because I like to experience variety, but I would definitely order this again.

    Jonathan (11/17/2018)
    I buy this tea again and again - the leaf is tightly clinging together though each one, silver and rich brown, is distinctly separate. THe smell reminds me of mocha. The tea tastes full and intense, yet subtle.

    Marika (11/15/2018)
    Allot of tea is required to get the full flavor I enjoy. I´ve grown quite fond of it as an alternative to the brighter and harsher Indian black teas. This has an earthy quality: a bit of fresh grain taste, or mushroom. Not a typical tea for the USA.

    Uzi (10/19/2018)

    Uzi (8/3/2018)
    This tea has beautiful leaves, it brews strongly golden-brown, rich and sophisticated, yet every-time-of-the-day tea - i keep ordering it and will keep ordering.

    Marika (5/12/2018)
    This batch of Sichuan Congfu made it final: this tea is my favourite! It has dark, malty, liquor with delicious substance to it and honey-like, lingering but unobtrusive, aroma and aftertaste. Just ordered two large packs of it! Again!

    Marika (4/28/2018)
    This tea is of excellent taste and aroma. Love it. Just got another shipment of it.

    Marika (1/19/2018)
    eccellente per accompagnare dolcetti biscotti al burro ecc.

    Tommaso (12/20/2017)
    The tea is bright tasting with gentle rose flavoured notes, a pleasant surprise! I loved the smell of it when just opened the package. Will order more!

    Marika (12/9/2017)
    I do not have experience in black teas, but this one is very tasty. Was a real surprise! Unexpected floral notes for a black tea. Very nice tea.

    Jizdan (12/7/2017)
    I order from this teaspring website since teas from the markets are typically unauthentic and not fresh, not to mention expensive too. I´ve even tried the tea shops in my area and find the teas there bland and uniform.

    Ronald (2/25/2017)
    Sichuan Gongfu shares similarities with the flavor profile of Yunnan Gold, but it is a bit stronger and sweeter with less emphasis on malt and bread dough notes. Definite hint of cocoa powder in the finish which is softened by a subtle hint of short bread. While Sichuan Gongu brews up a nice standalone cup, it also blends beautifully with cooked Taiwanese style Tai Kwan Yin, Greenfield Estate Ceylon, and most varieties of third flush Darjeeling. This choice is recommended for those who want a black tea with a slightly darker palate and longer finish than a typical Yunnan black.

    Matthew (2/18/2017)
    Love this black tea. Strong flavor, not to bitter if overbrewed. My favorite tea at work.

    Thomas (4/25/2016)
    Sooooooooo good!! Their description is spot on,,,this tastes like hot chocolate. It certainly does not need milk but I did add a little hot frothy milk to the last cup of my session with this tea and it was just like hot chocolate with whipped cream! Amazing!! And the little tiny leaves are so beautiful and delicate too.

    Lee (2/21/2015)
    Delicious and rich tea. I think that I can get more than a minute without bitter compounds coming out.

    Blake (1/27/2015)
    Delicious a bit floral or Jasmine notes but not over the top. Similar in flavor to my first batch.

    Blake (12/1/2014)
    It is a nice tea. Good aroma smelled a touch like a jasmine tea. First two steeps were great. Third is ok.

    Blake (4/16/2014)
    I like this tea. The taste is hard to describe- I might say it resembles spices, but not too heavy though because it is easy to drink. Give it a try for a different black tea experience.

    Ronald (4/13/2014)
    Really smooth-drinking, slightly nutty black tea. Perfect for the morning.

    Keith (3/31/2014)
    Love this one. I use it at work. No filter , just throw a 1 or 2 teaspon in a cup. It will sink to the bottom. Just add more hotwater when it becomes to strong. It´s longlasting. Can take at least 3 steeps.

    Thomas (5/16/2013)
    замечательный черный чай с приятным ароматом, один из моих любимых

    Svetlana (2/21/2013)
    TeaSpring was accurate in describing sichuan gongfu tea as having only tea buds- they are very small and fine, and not pieces of leaves. The taste is restrained- it doesn´t last very long on the palate. Something like a hint of floral notes, or vanilla. This tea is good, maybe I might like it more as I drink it further.

    Ronald (12/20/2012)
    Beautiful fragrance and flavour. I dont like words like , ´chocolate´, it just tastes like lovely Chinese tea with a long aftertaste. Drink it not during talking, enjoy it in silence with only your thoughts around you. And I make a virtual journey to China

    Joost (10/14/2012)
    One of the finest black teas to have. Little tea goes a long way.

    Peter (5/10/2012)
    This is a very good black tea. The taste reminds me of sweet chocolate.

    Jana (4/18/2012)
    My mind boggles at how tasty this is. Like malty pancake syrup with a cocoa aftertaste and sometimes even notes of caramel. Faint notes of wood, toasted bread and pepper occasionally pop up. It´s smooth with a silky and round mouthfeel. Truly fantastic - I will be buying this in the large size!

    Amanda (3/14/2012)
    The Sichuan Gongfu is excellent, one of the best Black Tea´s I have come across. A compelling taste, not too much tannin, not too little, just right. Well balanced and mouthwatering taste. It is definitely on the order again list.

    Joel (2/12/2012)
    Very good mix of black teas. Has aromatic and strong taste.

    Philip (11/16/2011)
    Truly one of the finest black teas on th market. Gongfu for sure.

    Peter (10/16/2011)
    From start to finish; I smell and taste cocoa and malt. Defiantly a unique flavor in black teas. This tea is highly enjoyable; but not an everyday drink for me. Even better sweetened with milk.

    Christopher (10/8/2011)
    Fine black tea, I buy it again and again. At tea very easy pleasant fruit taste.

    Svetlana (6/24/2011)
    È un tipo di tea che gusto con piacere in particolare questo risulta buono ma non allo stesso livello di quello acquistato nel 2008.

    Tommaso (1/16/2011)
    delicious rich china black, very strong chocolate notes as Teaspring mentions. Highly recommended

    Dorian (1/4/2011)
    Thanks so much...I´m drinking for healing purposes of my inner body!!

    Talisha (11/2/2010)
    Great, very sublte, good for drinking in small cups.

    Paweł (7/20/2010)
    Very nice tea, sweet, aromatic and not too strong.

    Konstantin (7/4/2010)
    This tea has a wonderful chocolate like smell, the brew is nice and smooth, a wonderful tea.

    Wade (6/22/2010)
    A true member of the royal family of black teas. It seems my day looks so much better when I have this tea for breakfast. It is such a beautiful treat.

    Peter (4/28/2010)
    Just beautiful. My most favored red tea, yet I can never really make up my mind which I like more Qi Men Hong or this Chuan Hong. Whichever I drink makes it.

    Peter (11/19/2009)
    I do not have experience in black teas, but this one is very tasty. I can´t say more with reagard to my lack of knowledge about this kind of tea.

    Paweł (10/10/2009)
    My favorite so far of my order. A light, aromatic brew. Flavorful and refreshing. I am looking forward to infusing these leaves many more times in different ways.

    Christopher (9/9/2009)
    A lighter black tea, I enjoyed it very much, not as complex as Dian Hong, but very good.

    Daniel (8/26/2009)
    An excellent tean. it taste like a memory. subtil and rare.

    Ricardo (8/8/2009)
    It was a good surprise & I really liked it. It´s fresh (though "fresh" is the definition for every tea here), tender & tart, resembling Yunnan a bit in my opinion.

    Alex (6/5/2009)
    Very unique and somewhat vegetal black tea much unlike Keemun or Yunnan....

    Brenton (5/14/2009)
    A lighter black tea, I enjoyed it very much, not as complex as Dian Hong, but very good.

    Daniel (4/9/2009)
    Never tasted a ´black´ tea like this, so it must be red tea, just beautiful. Using 2 level teaspoonful for my 750 ml breakfast tea is just right. One infusion, steeping until its finished. The last cup with a cloud of milk and little honey makes my day.

    Peter (7/20/2008)
    was a real surprise! unexpected floral notes for a black tea. excellent!

    Tommaso (5/15/2008)
    Very nice tea, chocolaty creamy taste to it. doesn´t go bitter very easily

    john (5/13/2008)
    A fine tea, very similar to Yunnan Gold. The aroma reminds me of a dried Chinese plum. The only small complaint I have about the tea is that it seems a bit lacking in body.

    Vuong (4/2/2008)
    Great tea for gong fu. Even better than keemun I think, and I love keemun. The taste it broad and balanced sweet , and the same leathery tone as keemun, only a little lighter.

    Oskar (3/3/2008)
    This tea has such a lovely fragrance when you open the package! The combination of malt and floral notes is intriguing. The tea brews a beautiful amber color. We made it two ways: English style with milk (no sugar) and modified gongfu (less leaves than we would normally use in a gaiwan, brewed for 1 minute). Both ways were delightful. This is definitely not a gulping tea! You´ll want to let it sit on your tongue for a while and let the flavors develop. Not as intense as, say, a Keemun, but so enjoyable in its own way.

    Andrew (3/2/2008)
    Very good. Haven’t quite got the hang of brewing it yet, but it’s good to experiment with.

    anon (2/2/2008)
    Very good with a touch of milk and sugar, one of my main red teas.

    Wanda (1/27/2008)
    excellent black tea, with very strong cocoa notes. very beautiful red tea buds . very recomendable to any black tea drinker

    Sergio (12/13/2007)
    Rich in aroma, taste and nuance while brewing. Roccomnadation - try gong fu brewing, not traditional european way and you will be rewarded :)

    Armandas (8/21/2007)
    Rich, lush, slightly smoky......holds up to multiple infusions with ease. I really enjoyed the chocolate finish and sweet malty flavour that lingered in the back of the throat. Excellent with gingerbread or Indian foods. One of the best Gong Fu Blacks I’ve had. Enjoy!

    Jeanna (Shen) (6/24/2007)
    This red tea is a tad bit more brisk than the dian hongs I usually drink. It has a mild, astringent bite one would associate with Assam. I will try it again using less tea, cooler water, and shorter infusion.

    Gerald (3/20/2007)
    Nice tea, a bit like Dian Hong.

    Vladimir (11/20/2006)
    Different tasting than other black teas--in a good way. Well worth buying and trying.

    Jeff (10/7/2006)
    This is a wonderful Keemun black tea. The description of smooth and rich is very apt. I brew it in the English (?) style, in a teapot, using boiling water for 3+ minutes and have it unsweetened with milk but a friend who also rates it highly has it straight without milk.
