Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10

Not bad, but a bit astringent (almost bitter) to my taste. It has a refreshing quality, too. This tea reminds me a lot of the teas I drank while living in Japan (though it's a Chinese tea).Read Full Review
Certainly worth giving a try. I always like the quality of Rishi teas.
Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Hubei, China90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 9/10

If you enjoy Jasmine Tea, then I would definitely give this one a try. It is a very good value at approx. $4 an ounce, less than half the price of Rishi's Yin Hao Jasmine Green Tea (which is also excellent). For me, the biggest difference is that you get a bit more flavor of the green tea base, and the Jasmine flavor i...Read Full Review

I thought this tea was simple and tasty. The scent was unlike any other green tea I've had! It had an unexpected berrylike aroma, reminding me of berry body creams I've used. While I really liked this tea and am a big fan of Arbor teas, I'll stick with other greens that I've tried from them, mainly because I'm not a...Read Full Review

I'd say this is my second-favorite of the green teas I've sampled from Arbor Teas so far.Read Full Review
The dry leaf is dark looking, with a fruity aroma, strangely suggestive of a strawberry tart or pastry.
Upon brewing, has a classic Chinese green tea profile. The suggestion of strawberry is present, but is like a hint or a...

Unlike many green teas, Jade Cloud did not taste bitter to me. It was smooth and refreshing,with sharp, citrus, and grassy qualities.I had a tea bag sample version, and made it according to the instructions. It tasted more sour/sharp as it cooled, and was good for a second steeping. I generally enjoyed this tea, but pr...Read Full Review

This struck me as one of the better jasmine teas I've had in a tea bag or sachet, if not the best. I'd compare it against Two Leaves and a Bud's Jasmine Petal, or Novus Tea's Jasmine Tea. I prefer it to both; it seemed more similar to Novus Tea's offering.Read Full Review
Slightly perfumey. Very full-bodied; somewhat astringent ...
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Dec. 17th, 2012
I just tried the bagged version of this tea and was pretty pleased. Overall I liked the tea and thought that it was refreshing, like a typical green. I would have it again if offered to me, but I probably wouldn't buy it on my own. I feel that I can buy the same quality bagged tea for less - I would like to try the ...Read Full Review
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 8/10
Dec. 3rd, 2012
I had just a sample of this one, the version that comes in a teabag, not loose. So I only got to experiment with making it one way, rather than brewing it a couple different ways to see what changes. Read Full Review
That said, I steeped it exactly according to the instructions on the package, and it came out really nicely. The aro...
Style: Dancong Oolong – Region: Hubei, China80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Oct. 18th, 2012
This is pretty good Oolong. It has a deep, dark aroma, but is light bodied and subtle. The tea has a slightly sweet, dark, but quick finish and goes well with soup and/or dumplings, playing off the saltiness of the broth and the heartiness of the dumplings. I've found that the flavor doesn't linger very long, but th...Read Full Review
Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Jan. 21st, 2012
This tea was barely like other gunpowder green tea, and much more like other high-grade Chinese green teas. The loose leaf is only loosely rolled, and looks quite delicate.Read Full Review
Aroma is vegetal and light, and suggests sweetness. There's no overt smokiness but there's a suggestion of camphor in the aroma, which I disli...
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 8/10
Oct. 29th, 2011
Excellent example of a Chinese Green from Hubei, that is both smooth and refreshing. I first tried this a number of years ago, then again recently based on Alex Zorach's review. He hits it on the nose when he describes it of being "simultaneously clean and rich tasting."Read Full Review
One of the things I like about Rishi's teas i...
Style: Keemun – Region: Hubei, China70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 6/10
Jun. 12th, 2011
The second Hubei Keemun I've tried, and it is immediately recognizable as a Hubei Keemun: the same aroma of chicken soup, the earthy and fruity Keemun tones weaker and taking a back burner, and a slight usually edginess not present in Anhui Keemuns.Read Full Review
Flavor is overall very sweet, there are even some tones of honey in...
Style: Keemun – Region: Hubei, China73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 7/10
Nov. 12th, 2010
This is the first Hubei Keemun I've tried, and I will say it is quite different from other Keemuns, and in fact, quite different from anything I've ever had: count on Rishi to locate and select innovative teas, although I still can't make up my mind about whether I like this particular innovation. I tried brewing this...Read Full Review
Style: Yin Hao Jasmine – Region: Hubei, China83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Sep. 2nd, 2009
This tea is very aromatic, and is both richer and less perfumey than some Jasmine teas. The flavor is mellow and smooth, there is very little bitterness and no astringency.Read Full Review
I have had good results with a shorter infusion time than recommended, and I think this tea is good for multiple infusions. You can also get a...
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 8/10
Aug. 29th, 2009
The aroma is very complex, with some grassy tones and some sharpness. Simultaneously clean and rich tasting. In my opinion, this tea combines the clean, sharp qualities of a good Japanese Sencha, without the fishy quality, and with the more rich and warm characteristics of some of the better Chinese green teas.Read Full Review
