Sub Par Imitation TiGuanYin I’ve had and enjoyed the TGY tea in the past so I knew what to expect. This tea was disappointing. The flavor is too strong and of a rather rancid quality. The leaves were very dried out and there was much powder in the tin. This is certainly not authentic TGY, the flavor is quite far off the mark. Other tea’s I’ve under the label “Golden Dragon” have been less then spectacular imitations of other famous Chinese teas. This is by far the worst.

low quality This is a cheap tea imported to the western market with a big markup. It is very strong and almost approaches a low quality black tea.

You’ll Beg for Mercy – Iron Goddess of Swill The texture is surprising. The aroma of wet ashtray that surrounds you after steeping is even more surprising. Once your palate has sampled some of that astringent, awful liquid you’ll think someone was cleaning auto parts in your tea. In fact, that could be preferable to what this tea delivers. After attempting to drink a cup of this you may consider drinking your own urine to be an upgrade. I wouldn’t use this tea to line my cat’s litter box.
