Walker Tea Review Top Teas of 2010: Naivetea’s Mu Zha Tie Guan Yin (93 points)


Reviews

Teaviews

“The intensity of the scenting is really quite unlike anything I’ve ever sampled before and to be honest, I spent several minutes just feeling a little stunned. Wonderfully stunned.” (Lychee: 10 out of 10 points)

“A spin on the popular ‘Oriental Beauty’ variety of Taiwanese Oolong teas. Naivetea seems to excel in their field — each offering I have encountered from them has been extremely enjoyable, and some of the best Oolong tea around. This tea is no exception.” (Imperial Beauty: 8 out of 10 points)

Sororitea Sisters

“I have tried several of Naivetea’s Oolongs in the past and I can tell you that they are of outstanding quality and flavor. If you love Oolong – they offer some of the best Oolong teas available anywhere!”

The Tea Review

“How lovely it is to be drinking this tea from Naivetea. This is a company that has always impressed me with their unsurpassed quality Oolong teas, and every time I try a new tea from them, it makes me want to try more from them. Yes, their tea is really that good.”

That Pour Girl

“My suspicion is that this would be good however you decide to fix it: warm or cold, with or without sugar, added honey or not, added ginger syrup or not, mix with another herb or not, etc. And since, as an oolong, it’s good for multiple brews, this is probably the best bang for your buck in terms of mint tea. I enthusiastically recommend this tea to any of my fellow mint lovers.”

Tea for Me Please

“The only word that I can think of to describe this tea is remarkable. This tea is smooth, sweet and buttery. The osmanthus lent a delicate floral and slightly citrus flavor without being too much like perfume. There was no bitterness and my second infusion was just as delicious. For a long time I thought that I didn’t like osmanthus very much but this tea proved to me that the blends I’ve tried before just weren’t up to par. I would definitely recommend this tea.” (Osmanthus)

Tea Amigos

“Their Osmanthus Oolong is a smash, with a smooth, flavorful oolong tea base with the flowery addition of osmanthus. Whatever log they picked the osmanthus from had to have come from the Tree of Life from Avatar.”

An International Tea Moment

“I began my day with [Naivetea’s] Li Shan Oolong, which is grown in the highest altitude tea farms in all of Taiwan. Knowing this tea was so exclusive only made me feel that much more elegant as I experienced this lovely, delicate tea. It has the lightest floral perfume, and a soft sleek feel. The best word that comes to mind is refined. Sipping this delight, I almost felt underdressed. This is a tea with presence. A Lady Diana of teas.”

Sir William of the Leaf

“I have not been disappointed yet. Good teas, each and every one.”

Expanding Leaves

“This tea is a very balanced tea, and is perfect for those who are not into overly roasted or overly floral oolongs.” (Dong Ding: 92/100)
