Avaata Supreme Nilgiri Green Tea First Flush (Organic) from Golden Tips

Style: Green Tea – Region: Nilgiri, India

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 21st, 2015

I have been to Avaata Tea Estate in the Nilgiris in southern India. The natural tea leaves are perfect in shape and need not to be fermented. Each single sip of tea fills your mouth with sensation of fruits and flowers. Fairly sharp and extremely smooth flavor. Golden Tips Teas are doing great work to assemble best of ...

Magnificent! Not quite what I would expect form green tea; definitely thought is was more reminiscent of high quality green oolongs.

I couldn't get enough of the vegetal flavor and buttery soupy texture. This was a thick tea, and practically a meal in itself.

Handles well over multiple steepings; I'm pretty sure...

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Mar. 11th, 2015

This is one of the best green teas I've tried to come out of India, or anywhere outside China and Japan for that matter. It also tasted the most like a top-notch Chinese green tea, of any tea I've tried yet from India.

The dry leaf of this tea is very loosely packed, consisting of whole, intact leaves which are lar...

Mar. 10th, 2015

The aroma of the rather large, pale, leaves is a bit light at first, but some good snuffling brings out the notes of fresh cut vegetation, baking bread, lima beans and green beans. This is another one of those teas that makes me hungry while sniffing it again.

The taste is unique, like a blend of a first flush Darje...

Just Pure Green from Just.Organic.Tea

May. 24th, 2014

The aroma of this tea is very faint, the leaves have a slightly vegetal and leafy aroma and that is all. What little aroma there is in the leaves is certainly a classic green tea.

The taste of the tea is probably the most 'green' green tea I have ever had. That probably needs some explanation, when I say it tastes l...

Himalayan Green from Octavia Tea

Jun. 5th, 2013

This is a very strong, bold-tasting green tea that is among my favorite green teas ever sampled. I sampled this tea, my first from Octavia Tea, for the first time, in a new and very cute cafe, Velvet Sky Bakery, in Jenkintown. It was brewed in the Adagio Ingenuitea infuser, incidentally, my first time having tea brew...

Feb. 26th, 2013

I wasn't impressed with this tea and found it quite bitter, which was a bit disappointing since I like so many other teas by Arbor Teas! I don't have any complaints about their pricing or the scent of the tea, which was average, but I didn't like the taste at all. After finding the flavor to be too sour and strong on...

Jan. 8th, 2013

My favorite ever green tea was a long-leaf green from Makaibari estate. This is a very different tea, and alas, I did not enjoy it quite as much, but it was still a very good tea.

I find this tea tastes more like Chinese green teas than most green teas I've tried from India; it reminds me of some Sri Lankan teas ma...

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 10th, 2012

Dry leaf has a mild herbaceous aroma, and a dusty appearance.

Produces an olive-green cup. Crisp, clear flavor, with honey-like qualities. Aroma is mild, dominated by melow herbaceous tones. Flavor is clean and the tea has a cooling quality. I found its flavor grew on me a bit. Produces two very flavorful infus...

My first Nilgiri green tea.

This was an interesting tea, but it was weaker in aroma than I would have liked. Tangy flavor, with tones of lemon or lime in the aroma. A hint of grassy tones, and cooked vegetable aromas as well, like asparagus. Almost a hint of vanilla in the aroma. Very much unlike Chinese or Japa...

Darjeeling Green from Shanti Tea

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 15th, 2010

The liqueur is a light amber color, almost looking like it has no flavoring to it. It smells floral and fruity. The flower smells like rose but it tastes like jasmine. There is a lightly earthen tone at the back of the smell that is similar to many black darjeelings.

The taste is started off with a overtone of jasmi...

Dec. 3rd, 2009

Fascinating, unique. Brews clear green. The aroma is dark and warm, and un-tea-like...it is almost like a good soup, with subtle spices and cooked vegetables.

Following Upton's brewing instructions, the flavor is mellow, smooth, and warm in character, with almost no bitterness...but lacking the crispness I like in ...

I was sad to see this tea removed from Upton's listings, as I enjoyed sampling it. [Update: it seems Upton has added a new lot, and I'm eager to try that one!]

Extremely flavorful and complex, with many different aspects of the aroma: dark, vegetal tones, rich grassy tones similar to a good dragonwell tea, and a hi...
