Our Review
Fujian Province in China is known for many great teas. Ti Quan Yin, Lapsang, Dragon Pearl Jasmine, and YinZhen are just a few of them. This Chingwo Congou is less known, but it is a great tea. Along the northern border of Fujian are some regions that make great black teas: Panyang, Zheng He, and Chingwo. This top tea has a lovely unctous or buttery characteristic.
Dry Leaves Long and skinny black leaves with a slight curve.
Liquor A deep auburn liquor.
Aroma An elegant blend of dark and sweet fruit, toast, and hints of creaminess.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body A very fulfilling tea, you are glad you drank it.
Flavors This wonderful tea coats you mouth with delicious fruity and creamy flavors.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Average Review:

I bought a sample bag of this tea.I let it sit on my tea shelf for about 6 months.What a silly thing to do.It is smooth and so lovely to drink.I am not very sophisticated about tea.With most of my order's I pick out a few sample bags.This tea is expensive but a sample bag goes a long way.I have steeped the tea twice .The second steeping was excellent.I feel very fancy drinking such an expensive tea.Did not get bitter even when I left my infuser in second steeping till I finished the cup.A little goes a long way.I used a bit less tea than I usually do.I tried it plain and with a small amount of good honey.I liked the tea both ways.A sample bag is extremely affordable.Treat yourself.

One of the best teas I ever had. Just awesome. Black tea at it's finest.



Average Review:

Sadly, I was only able to afford the sample of this tea, which is enough for me to make two pots. The smell of the dried leaves hint of fruit, mainly berries. The dried leaves are small and black, much like the Hao Ya teas. I brewed mine for 5 minutes with boiling water like a traditional black. The liquor is a very dark, almost a dark plum color. The aroma hinted at a dark berry, maybe a deep red raspberry or possibly a blackberry. The flavor is has this berry essence to it as well. There is absolutely no bitterness or astringency to this tea.
This is not a cheap tea, but you definitely get what you pay for here. I’d be interested in purchasing a two ounce tin like the expensive oolongs so that I can afford to purchase this. I would gladly drink this tea every day, but that would be like eating lobster every day. This is a fine tea worthy of treating yourself to on special occasions, or sharing with those important people in your life!
