Premium Tai Ping Hou Kui Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Green Tea – Region: Anhui, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Jan. 6th, 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed this tea, all the way from the beautiful tea leaves to the aftertaste. I wanted to try Tai Ping Hou Kui due to its intriguing leaf shape. It is definitely something different, unique, and extremely interesting. I fully enjoyed watching the leaves steep as the softened into long leaves.

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Feb. 20th, 2015

The aroma of the leaves is a delicate blend of green beans and sesame seeds with a touch of spicebush flowers and hyacinth. There is also a tiny hint of chestnut at the finish, the aroma notes are not the strongest, but they are pleasant in their delicateness.

The taste is refreshing, it starts with a blend of melo...

1400m Huang Shan Mao Feng from Life in Teacup

Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Anhui, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 9/10
Nov. 14th, 2014

Brewed tea in 9-10oz of water at 200F for 3 min first steep.

It had a nutty scent kind of like long jin (dragonwell). I could tell from the scent of the liquor and the wet leaves that this would be a top-quality tea.

The flavor is actually somewhat simple, but very pure. I get nuttiness/toastyness akin to the sce...

Jing Xian Ti Kui from Life in Teacup

Style: Green Tea – Region: Anhui, China

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 9/10
Sep. 3rd, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaf is very fresh smelling, blending notes of roasted sesame and peanuts with green bean and spinach. There is a tiny hint of sauteed mushrooms at the finish, giving the tea a hint of savory.

The first steep's mouthfeel is quite smooth, it was the first thing I noticed, after my initial enjoyme...

Jun. 23rd, 2014

The aroma is quite vegetal and also quite nutty, with note of green beans, spinach, chestnut, sweet sesame seed paste (Halva for those who enjoy Middle Eastern desserts) and a very delicate finish of toast. It manages to be sweet and vegetal without the clashing, in fact sniffing this tea makes me a bit hungry.

May. 13th, 2014

The aroma is sweet, a blend of delicate cherry and a delicate floral and fresh vegetation. Sniffing this tea reminds me of the aroma of spring rain and refreshing cool air, it is very evocative and delicate.

The first thing that strikes me after my first sip of the first steep is how refreshing it is, I feel revita...

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Apr. 7th, 2014

A mix of strong vegetal (I would say green bean and a hint of spinach) and sesame seeds. There is a finish of yeasty bread and cherries.

The beginning of the taste is sweet, gently sweet like honeysuckle nectar and sesame seeds. It reminds me a of the aftertaste you get when eating sesame Halva but with a vegetal qu...

Nov. 2nd, 2013

Bright, mellow, impressive flavor and aroma. There are slight nutty hints like a good dragonwell tea, but more herbaceous notes that linger as an aftertaste.

I had been brewing this in a small gaiwan, yielding at least 4 good short steepings, but also tried it in a tea thermos, adding 175F water over the leaves sev...

This tea is beautiful in appearance so it is not surprising that the aroma is also beautiful. It is very vegetal and slightly sweet. Once the leaves are brewed it is still very vegetal but also has a slight nuttiness.

The taste is smooth and the mouthfeel is buttery. it is vegetal and sweet with notes of sweetness ...

Truly a fantastic green tea, much better than any other liu an gua pian that I have tried. The dry leaves have a beautiful aroma and unfurl gently to release their emerald brew. Sweet, rich and releasing different flavors with each steeping.

I used a small glass gaiwan to brew so I could watch the leaves, and did a ...

Now this was more my type of green tea! While not my favorite, I thought it was much better than the last Teavivre green I had, Nonpareil Te Gong Huang Shan Mao Feng.

Brewing a light green color, this tea was smooth and subtly flavored. I thought it tasted great both as a hot and cold tea.

While I hate to review one of Teavivre's teas so poorly since I'm usually a big fan, this particular tea was not for me! This tea didn't have much of a smell or a taste. I brewed it a couple of times, with different temperatures and steeping lengths, each time it was the same, tasting more like hot water than tea to ...

Jun. 7th, 2013

Starting with the dry leaves, I have to say this tea is beautiful. Bright green whole leaves and buds with a slight silvery fuzz, the aroma that comes from them is fresh and slightly floral, specifically it reminds me of yarrow.

The color of the liquid is a wonderful citrine color and the aroma is delightful. It re...

I'm starting to think I really like this type of green tea. The first sample of it, from Upton, I liked very much, and this one I like even better.

The dry leaf has a strong and very pleasant aroma, one I'd describe as earthy and herbaceous, and suggestive of sweetness.

This has a richer and bolder flavor than m...

May. 14th, 2013

Very smooth, but not aromatic enough for me when brewed.

As usual with TeaVivre, the dry leaf is intensely aromatic, suggesting sweet and umami flavors. The leaf looks to consist exclusively of tips, with two very tiny leaves attached to a bud, the leaves hardly bigger than than the bud itself. Upon brewing though...

Dry Leaf: I get a sweet vegetal aroma. I can even see someone say grassy.
Wet Leaf: I get a vegetal aroma almost like a boiled green bean or something close to that.
Liquor: Clear and pale.
Taste: I get a light refreshing sweet vegetal flavor. The broth gives your tongue a slight dryness on your tongue that is nice....

Jun. 28th, 2012

I thought this was a top-notch green tea!

Dry leaf is tightly rolled and pleasingly aromatic, with a floral aroma suggesting orchid. Upon steeping, the leaf is slow to unfurl and slow to infuse, and the more familiar grassy aromas of green tea begin to slowly come out. The leaves are completely intact and unbroken...

This is the best green tea that I've had yet, and possibly my favorite tea! Paired with lunch on a hot day, I was extremely satisfied by its taste! It was refreshing and smooth, and had no bitterness whatsoever ( which is one of my usual complaints with tea). While it is a little pricey, I feel like this tea is wort...

Apr. 30th, 2012

Short summary: very smooth, extremely pleasing flavor, not the strongest aroma, and picky on brewing temperature. Exceptionally smooth for this price.

Dry leaf is intensely aromatic, and packed very loosely. A lot of leaf (by volume) is needed to produce a normal-strength cup.

I found this tea was picky about b...

This Chun Mee had a subtlety and sweetness that I have never encountered in this type of tea. Dry leaf is very aromatic, typical of this style of tea but more suggesting of sweetness. Like all the teas I received from Teavivre, it smelled extremely fresh.

Compared to other chun mee I've had, this one was sweeter, ...

This tea was served to me, Gong Fu style, by Evan. Dry leaf was extremely aromatic.

I found it to be simultaneously strong and refined. The other mao feng green teas I've tried have either been relatively coarser-tasting, with more astringency, or smooth but too weak. This was a powerful tea with a bold flavor, b...
