Queens China Oolong Tea 50g/1.75oz

Rated 4.86 out of 5 based on 74 customer ratings
74 Reviews

China has been associated with many things in the world, and this also applies to tea. Queens China Oolong Tea is one of the best Oolongs tea in the world. Each sip you take is packed with flavor. Emperors have mainly been associated with China, but there was an Empress known as Dowager Longyu whose favorite tea was the Dan Chong grade Oolong. It is semi-fermented and this means it falls between black tea and green tea in terms of strength, color, and flavor. It has a low caffeine level and high antioxidant level. You will get to know why it was a royal favorite when you take the first sip.

Information: While most people associate Imperial China with its long succession of Emperors, the Queen, although she was known as Empress Dowager, also played a large role in the Forbidden City, the ancient seat of rule. In fact, it was such a woman that signed the abdication giving up the Imperial rule in China on the 12th of February 1912. Empress Xiao Ding Jing, better known at the time as Empress Dowager Longyu, lived from 1868 to 1913 and signed the “Act of Abdication of the Emperor of the Great Qing” on behalf of the child emperor Puyi, an infant at the time. A few short months later, Longyu died at age 44 and was heralded by China’s new Vice President as the “most excellent among women.” Now, as you may have guessed, the reason we bring up Empress Dowager Longyu in this tea profile is for the fact that her favorite tea was known to be a Dan Chong grade Oolong, the variety we are offering here. The Dowager prized Dan Cong, grown and manufactured exclusively in Guangdong Province, for its purported ability to naturally imitate the fragrances and flavors of the various fruits and flowers that grow near the tea gardens. As such, many Dan Cong varieties are noted for their various characters – orange blossom, almond, ginger, etc. Longyu’s favorite was very similar to Queen’s China Oolong. This remarkable tea boasts clean, delicate notes of orchid – befitting the refined tastes of royalty – balanced astringency and a long clean finish. (Like all Oolong teas, Queen’s Oolong is semi-fermented, meaning it falls somewhere between green and black teas in terms of color, strength, and flavor.) From the first sip, it becomes abundantly clear why this tea was a royal favorite.

    The taste is delicious! Its gentle, sweet, and flavorful with notes of fruit and flowers but a sweeter flower. Towards the end of the sip hints of sweeter malty honey seem to kick in, too! This is VERY nice!

    Im still new to oolong teas, but this really tasted like a smooth and clean black tea more than others that Ive tried. It was really delicious and mellow, with light dried fruit and floral tastes that are very subtle.

    This tea has very little bitterness if any at all. Its rare for me to find a tea, especially on the darker end of the spectrum, that I can drink without sugar, but this cup can do it.

    This tea produces the typical oolong golden yellow type brew, and cools to become very smooth and gently sweet. A very easy drinking tea.

    I loved this the first time I tried it and its now one of my staples. Very smooth and with a delicate sweetness. First steeping is very good, second steepings the best, but by the third steeping the flavors really starting to drop off so I mostly dont do more than two.

    A very fine and delicious tea; its mellow and sweet. It was surprisingly bright and fruity. I use a big pinch and am able to get flavor from re steeping it at least four times.

    I have a guilty little confession about this tea. I love it! I love it so much that I really acquired it more for myself rather than because it filled a hole in our tea selection. This is my reward tea. Whenever I am feeling down or when I accomplish something big, I allow myself to indulge in a few cups of this wonderful tea.

    This oolong had a light but pleasant flavor. I would recommend planning to drink this tea after a meal, but not necessarily if you are looking for a breakfast tea. In addition, I think the light flavor is best if taken alone without any additive or food.

    Very, very good. Earthy and slightly orange like. I want to say that its blood orange. All I know is that its almost addictive and one that I couldnt really stop drinking. Sweetened with Stevia.

    It took me a bit to decide if I fully liked this one or not. Its the most complex flavor Ive ever tasted from a single ingredient tea. Its a bit weedy, a bit nutty, and a little bit herbal but still a smooth green. It goes down well with a bit of honey.

    I havent had much luck with Oolong teas so far, but this was definitely a treat. For me, Ive gotten a distinct nutty taste and smell at points, and I also could taste an orange tone.

    This oolong has a nice earthy flavor and smell. This tea reminds me of that earthy smell during and after a rain storm.

    This was my first ever oolong I am definitely sold. I was first impressed by the size and shape of the tea leaves huge and beautiful loose twists. I rinsed the leaves and brewed until it was an orange color. Ive done two steeps with no change in strength or flavor, so it could probably handle another steep or two.

    This is an oolong tea; liquor is medium dark, as a complexity which I like in oolongs. Each steeping of the leaves reveals different flavors. Very nice.

    Its a mild oolong with not too mineral of flavor. Im just not too big of an oolong fan after all! But I think if you like oolong, you will like this one

    This tea definitely varies depending on how its brewed. Im still learning how to manipulate the temperatures and steeping times to bring out different flavors, but I can say the first steeping has a strong grassy flavor, while in subsequent steeps it is noticeably milder.

    Vallie Leimer (verified owner)

    I tried this as my first oolong. I wanted to try the cheaper ones and work my way up so that way if I was disappointed I could blame it on it being cheap. I was quite impressed with this tea and its distinct flavor.

    I really enjoy this tea. I especially like it iced with a few jasmine yin hao pearls tossed in. It truly does have a very pleasant mineral taste that does remind me of how it smells outside after rain. Give this one a try.

    This is a really nice cup or pot of tea. Mellow and lovely with some light fruity notes, I have been enjoying it every morning. I forgot it was an oolong as it behaves more like a black tea but definitely milder than a breakfast blend. Will buy again…

    I almost didnt steep this tea a second time, but after reading the reviews I did. And boy am I glad! The first cup has a toasted flavor you can smell and taste. The mineral taste, for me, was more of an after taste that lingers.

    This oolong tastes more like a black tea to me. There isnt the floral aroma you usually get but there is a rich dark flavor thats really nice. When you want a darker oolong with some sweetness and depth.

    Nice, smooth oolong, with a warm flavor and nice color. My mom used to make a tea very similar to this, but I couldnt find it any more. I was very happy when I brewed my first cup and was taken back to when my mom would make us tea.

    Unlike some teas I have had that say they have a mineral element to the flavor, this tea is light enough to not overwhelm the other elements of the tea. It brews to a beautiful amber color.

    It was described to me as musky with veggie overtones but I didnt find that to be true at all. It tastes really rich and slightly sweet, in a good way. As a diabetic hot chocolate is not an option for me but this serves that purpose just fine!

    Insanely smooth with virtually no astringency. Wonderfully mild taste that is half way between the vegetable/leaf like taste of the light roasts and the fruity/earthy flavors of the dark roasts. One of my favorite oolongs I have had.
