The taste is totally ok but too subtle for me. This Ti Kwan Yin definitely not quite alike the one I drank in Hong Kong or China - not strong enough. Actually I don't drink water (too boring) but drink tea (hot tea not iced tea) everyday. However if you don't like strong tea this one is good for you. Despite the subtlety, the taste is better than green tea.

The Republic of Tea's Ti Kuan Yin has quickly risen to the top of my favorite tea list. I had a rather large bag from another vendor, and not wanting to be wasteful, I finished that bag off before trying the TRoT version. My first sip made me wish I wasn't so frugal because I realized this is what I should have been drinking all along. It's nicely floral, but not overwhelmingly so. I steep gongfu style, so I can't comment on the recommended steeping times except to say that even 5 minutes seems a bit excessive for an oolong. That aside, this is the perfect tea. I can (and do!) drink it all day long. The reported health benefits are a plus, but I'd drink this Ti Kuan Yin all day long even if it was horribly unhealthy! Still, I'd love to see this in an organic form for peace of mind.

I'm easing off my dependence on milk in tea, and this helps the transition. The taste is full and not at all bitter. It's sweet enough to drink completely on its own. I suggest the longer brewing times; 7 minutes works for me.

I drink it at work, after "things" calm down, but it's best in the evening on the back patio.

where are the orchid notes?

Tie Guan Yin is my favorite tea (well, now I had to add RoT's own Milk Oolong!) I have had a dozen varieties from China and from Taiwan, in several grades. All have that distinctive floral note, an exotic flower perfume that is persistent, but always subtle. So I was disappointed that this one just lacked that floral note -- it is a good, plain oolong, with a fruity low note and a little bit of brightness. Nothing wrong, but, at least in my limited experience, atypical for Tie Guan Yin.
