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

If my heaven could exist in a teacup, I think I may have found it here. Read Full Review
I thought this tea was phenomenal. The silky smooth mouthfeel and the orchid, honeysuckle. and vegetal tones were to. die. for. I don't think I could get enough!
This tea lasts for multiple infusions; the first is by far the best, but I th...

Great oolong! Subtle all around; light floral tones, light color, and light vegetable flavor all make for a pleasing drink. Tea left a buttery soft texture on my lips. Simply Good Teas lives up to their name; nothing overly fancy, but very good!Read Full Review

Fantastic tea! I'm also incredibly excited that it's grown in the United States. Read Full Review
For a black tea, I was surprised that the taste reminded me of my favorite oolongs; there was a lot of vegetable flavor happening in my cup.

Wow, not what I was expecting from a black tea in a really good way! This sample came from the Philadelphia Coffee & Tea Expo.Read Full Review
Brews more like an oolong, which is right up my alley. Has the strong vegetable taste of cooked greens. No bitterness at the end. Slight natural sweetness. Floral tones in the dried lea...

First off, I need to comment on the red-tail description at Andrew & Dunham's website - love the sense of humor guys! I don't think I'll be hugging a red-tail hawk anytime soon...Read Full Review
Normally I'm not a fan of blended tea, so I was surprised to like this one so much. I especially love the richness of the tea and that ...

This tea was really good, reminiscent of tea served at my favorite Chinese restaurant growing up. Read Full Review
Full yet mild flavor, with both steepings being rich. The leaf could have yielded more cups if had the time. The dried leaves smell like raisins!

I'm surprised that this was an OP - impressive! I agree with Alex, definitely the best OP I've had, ridiculously complex for such a mainstream style. Read Full Review
I definitely noticed a nice roasted taste to the tea and an extremely unexpected subtle vegetable taste, reminiscent of some of my favorite oolongs. The vegetable ...
Style: Sencha – Region: Kumamoto, Japan90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Nov. 24th, 2014
This was a great tea! It has a hearty vegetable flavor satisfied my taste buds like no other, and the smell was fantastic. I also loved the cheery bright green color! Read Full Review
I made one brew of this tea, letting it steep for 3 minutes, as suggested. I didn't get a chance to try other steepings, hopefully in the future I...
Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Nov. 1st, 2014
I'm having mixed feelings about this tea. Initially the smell was amazing, the dry leaf had a complex and spicy aroma. I wasn't as excited about the smell of the tea once it was brewed, the smell lost all of it's spice tones and reminded me of most basic black teas. The taste was pretty basic as well and also remind...Read Full Review

This tea was amazing! I loved how vegetable-y it smelled and tasted, and how velvety it was going down. Mmmm. This has to be one of the best oolongs I've had in a while. It was a little sweet, but not overwhelming so. I'm very impressed!Read Full Review

This tea was great! I loved how roasty it was and how it didn't have a bitter taste to it. This was a good tea for my first German tea experience. Yum. :)Read Full Review

Oct. 9th, 2014
Eh, this one wasn't bad, not my favorite though. I didn't notice anything outstanding here. I was expecting more of a floral smell than it produced, and more flavor. It reminded me of a light green tea, similar to what Emily suggested. Read Full Review
I will give extra points for this being organic!
Style: Raw / Green / Sheng Pu-erh – Region: Yunnan, China70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Oct. 9th, 2014
My entire thought while drinking this was "nothing beats knowing that I'm drinking tea from an ancient tea forest; how cool is that?!" I liked it! It was a nice brew. Read Full Review
The dried leaf does a have a fruity smell, like Alex suggested, not sure if I'd call it grape. The tea once brewed didn't have much of an aroma, ...
Style: Ripened (Shou) Pu-erh – Region: Fengqing, Yunnan, China50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 5/10
Oct. 6th, 2014
This tea was meh. I was expecting a little more from it and slightly disappointed. There wasn't much flavor and not much of a scent either, and I'm all about aroma with tea, even if it is "damp basement" smelling pu-erh, which is what I was told to expect. I work with old books and things, so I kind of like that sme...Read Full Review

Oct. 6th, 2014
This tea was great! I got three brews out of it, all well flavored. The third was quite possibly the best. The second brew was a little too light for me,which could have been because I steeped it for a shorter time with cooler water. I loved the vegetable tones and how smooth it was!Read Full Review
Style: Darjeeling Black Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Oct. 5th, 2014
This was a good Darjeeling. Subtly flavored with no bitterness. I thought this was a high quality tea for being bagged. The price was typical for a cafe, I've heard that boxes of this tea can be pricey.Read Full Review

This was an exceptional sacheted oolong! The smell was exquisite and so was the taste. This tea can be resteeped at least once, giving more for the money paid. Question remains... where can I get more?? I may need to mail order, as a friend brought this back for me from England.Read Full Review

May. 22nd, 2014
This tea took me back to summers spent sitting out at my parent's house on the deck... I've never experienced a tea smelling so summery and think it was because of its lemon and flower tones. I really could have spent most of my night holding the cup in my hand and taking occasional wiffs! Mmm... smells are one of my...Read Full Review
Style: High Mountain Oolong – Region: Nantou, Taiwan90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10
Mar. 18th, 2014
I thought this tea was amazing. It went further than any tea I've had before at 5 cups with the same leaves, with a similar strength. I honestly think I could have brewed more, but my meeting was finished and I had to dump the remainder. I could gush about the vegetal taste of this tea, it was all I could want and mo...Read Full Review

Mar. 7th, 2014
I especially enjoyed the roasty flavor of this tea. There definitely was a slight sweetness, which from my own preferences, I wasn't a huge fan of. I always find it impressive when I get a few cups of tea with similar strength off the same leaves, and this tea delivered. I've only had two oolongs from Eco-Cha so far...Read Full Review

Feb. 12th, 2014
I thought this tea was fantastic. I loved the vegetable flavors and light floral tone. The only thing I didn't like was the mild sweetness, but that hardly changes how much I enjoyed it. I also loved that I was able to brew four cups out of out one sample packet, without the tea loosing any flavor! Read Full Review

Jan. 30th, 2014
I agree with Alex, I thought this was one of the better bagged Senchas I've had so far. I really enjoyed the fresh grassy smell and the spinachy taste. I brewed it for a short time, so its taste wasn't too overpowering.Read Full Review

Jan. 17th, 2014
I was impressed with this tea; it made a good cup to enjoy on my work break. I thought it had a subdued flavor compared to other English Breakfasts, and it didn't leave a bitter aftertaste. Read Full Review

I thought this tea was great. I could rave about it, but will settle for saying I loved the hint of flowers in the smell and the hearty vegetable soup taste it left in my mouth... practically a meal in itself. Now I just need to know, where can I buy some? Sign me up, I'm there!Read Full Review
PS I agree with Alex, definitely n...
