The aroma of this tea is mild with notes of artichoke, citrus, and grapes. The brewed tea is more like vegetation than vegetal and the liquid is very mild with delicate vegetation notes. Read Full Review
The taste is nothing spectacular, it is not a bad tea but it does not make me jump for joy. Mixing mild vegetal, bitter greens, a...

This was my first loose tea from Foojoy, and I was rather pleased. A good solid green that is both inexpensive and has good flavor. Although I had seen Foojoy loose teas in their tins at my local Asian market, I had never tried any since I was not ready to take a chance on about $9.50 for 8 ounces; a very good price, b...Read Full Review

A classic chun mee, pretty much what I'd expect for this type of tea.Read Full Review
Somewhat broken leaf, with a strong refreshing aroma, brews a dark cup. Dry leaf is very aromatic, smelling herbaceous and almost minty.
Aroma of the brewed cup is suggestive of gingerbread and fresh herbs. This tea is tangy, but it's not the...

This struck me as an average-quality chun mee (precious eyebrows) green tea for a very low price. Not the best tea of its type that I've sampled, but certainly the best at this price point.Read Full Review
I bought this tea in a Square tin for the pretty low price of $8 for 8 ounces, which seemed outright cheap to me.
The cup i...

I never thought I'd get yet another opportunity to sample more loose-leaf tea from SpecialTeas, but one of my friends had a sealed packet of this tea and I was able to brew it up.Read Full Review
I must say, it stored very well and tasted very fresh.
As the commercial description suggests, this tea has a plum-like flavor. It is...

Dry Leaf: Has a vegetal aroma slight sweetness to it with a slight smokey aroma.Read Full Review
Wet Leaf:Has a vegetal aroma think maybe boiled spinach.
Liquor: Has a yellowish green broth.
Taste: I get a vegetal flavor with a plum after taste but can even see someone saying smokey. A very slight bitter touch that does leave a sl...

I thought this tea was mild and smooth, and it didn't leave a bitter taste in my mouth. Overall I found it refreshing and would recommend it to others who like green tea.Read Full Review

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

This tea got my attention with the first sip--another chun mee of unusual quality, like rodents of unusual size. Similar to ZG42 (Chun mee dao ming) in how inexpensive it is relative to its quality, but very different in character.Read Full Review
The aroma is very complex: significantly grassier than any other Chun Mee I've tried...

Lemony, tangy, almost like you added lemongrass or lemon flavoring. This was an interesting departure on one of my favorite types of green tea...it's recognizable as the style, but not in the way I expected. No smokiness, but still fresh tasting, although slightly less crisp. Much less bitter and astringent, and doe...Read Full Review

I was really sad to see this one go; it was my favorite example of a chun mee. Although Upton's Chun Mee moon palace was close, I preferred this one.Read Full Review
This is an outstanding green tea at a very reasonable price, and it's organic to boot! It is unusually strong, bitter, and complex for a chun mee tea, and my favorit...

The aroma is smoky: much less so than gunpowder tea but nonetheless quite smoky. The smoky character is bold without overpowering the other aspects of the tea. The aroma also has some intricate aspects to it.Read Full Review
The tea is much less bitter than the aroma would suggest, and it has a cool and clean aftertaste. I like ...

This tea, which I enjoyed, has been discontinued, which I don't think is a big loss because I preferred both the Chun Mee Dao Ming and Chun Mee Moon Palace from Upton.Read Full Review
Mellow and subdued, with a coolness to the aroma, without being crisp. There's a little smokiness in the aftertaste but less in the initial aroma. ...
