Be seen as a relatively small minority in Chinese rock tea Kingdom, Huang Guanyin Oolong Tea, also named ‘105’ tea, is a light-fragrant type rock tea which belongs to Wuyi rock tea family. Huang Guanyin Oolong Tea contains both the rhyme of “Iron Goddess” and the aroma of “Golden Osmanthus” (Golden Osmanthus Oolong Tea has the reputation of “Tou Tian Xiang”, which means its fragrance is very rich and long-lasted). So, it can yet be regard as an introduction for Tie Guanyin lovers who want to taste rock tea.
After lightly roasted with charcoal fire for five times, Teavivre’s Huang Guanyin Oolong Tea has rich fragrance aroma and bright orange liquid, with fresh and mellow taste as well as distinct orchid floral. The first two steeps taste a hint bitter, but will quickly turn to sweet aftertaste. While the third steep, its taste becomes flat and the tea flavor will decline while the fourth and fifth steep, but sweet taste will be prominent.
Personally speaking, Huang Guanyin Oolong Tea’s magic lies in its aroma. You will smell different aroma every time when you brew it, sometimes floral aroma, sometimes milk aroma, sometimes even a wine-like aroma. Remember to smell the aroma while brewing it with Gaiwan. It will bring you a different special feeling for sure.
This tea, baked with soft charcoal fire, combines moderate roasted flavor with high aroma, and is very suitable for tea lovers who prefer high-fragrance tea or want to try rock tea.

Located in the southeast of Wuyi Mountain, Jianou City is one of the major oolong tea production areas in Fujian. The annual average temperature, annual rainfall, and relative humidity here respectively are 18.5℃, 2,000mm and 80%. The mist-covered high mountains and thick forests in this area collectively form a natural green barrier to protect the tea plants from the hot sun light in summer and cold valley winds in winter. All those excellent conditions are conducive to tea growth and help accelerate the accumulation of aromatic compounds in leaves.

These are the types of tea that I least enjoy, the roasted oolong, but I should have known I would enjoy the leaf that Teavivre offers. The leaf here is dark brown and twisty with a fragrance of fresh hay. The flavor is mostly SWEET honey with hints of lemon and charcoal. So very sweet -- another tea I could swear that has sugar in it. Two teaspoons is perfect for me, it isn't overboard on the charcoal flavor that I don't like. Just a hint of charcoal in this yellow cup! The second steep has even more of a fuller flavor with a little more charcoal, but it's evenly balanced -- I like the sweetness with the roastiness. I should have steeped this a third time but it was too late for caffeine. Charcoal teas are my least favorite tea but this is the best of this type of tea that I've tried. Teavivre is always fantastic. I'm always surprised by almost every Teavivre tea I've tried. Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug// 18 minutes after boiling // rinse // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // 13 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep Harvest: 2016
This tea was surprisingly nice. The leaves are frail with sweet roasted scents of caramel, roasted fruits, plum, and tobacco. I grabbed my wee lil jianshui and warmed it up. The sauna'd leaves give off distinct roasted oats, dark wood, and a burnt sugar aroma. I was really diggin this tea. I washed the leaves once and began my steepin. The taste was of sweet nectar with some mild roast underneath. The base was heavy brown sugar and a yielded a nice oily aftertaste. Also, I noted a hidden peach tone that peeped up later on. This was really good, and I liked this tea. The price is superb, and this makes a wonderful daily drinker.
Huang guan yin. (Yellow goddess) wuyi rock oolong tea. By Teavivre. Review: Ru Yao dragon teapot gongfucha. Dry leaf: honey, roasted. https://www.instagram.com/p/BPNq7Qtggg0/ Wet leaf: strong honey, slight roasted, floral. https://www.instagram.com/p/BPNvFFBABcz/ 1x short rinse. Light steep: I taste/smell: (smell) slight ---> toasty, roasted, fruity (peaches?) earth? (Taste) light ---> earth, toasty, roasted, fruity (peaches). https://www.instagram.com/p/BPNtKqQA0oO/ Medium steep; I taste/smell: (smell) slight ---> roasted, fruity (peach). (Taste) slight roasted/toasted (?). medium floral. Heavy steep; I taste/smell: (smell) medium ---> roasted, toasty. (Taste) strong ---> roasted/toasty, floral. All in all a lovely tea. But since it's a weird tasting roasted/toasty, plus there's some astringency, I rate an 80.
This tea was biggest surprise from my last order. Strong and pleasant aroma and the taste - excellent. I prepared it according to instructions exactly by Chinese Gongfu Way. But... it was only sample and now I see: Out of Stock - what a disappointment... Teavivre's Reply Thank you for your comment and preference for Huang Guanyin Oolong tea. The new spring tea will coming soon! I will let you know when it is re-stocked. Thanks for your support!
Interesting tea. Mix of huangjingui & tgy. Don't know much about this tea but the body was good the taste was decent. It's the cheapest out of all the wuyis I know.
As it is already stated in description, much of this tea happens around smell. The dry leaves smell like chocolate, not as strong as some Dian Hongs can, but it still dominates the experience. And the aroma changes every time you brew. Taste is also great - light roast, bittersweet, changing from sip to sip. Between this and Teavivre Da Hong Pao, Huang Guanyin is a better tea, and as such, definitely worth purchasing.
