Mythical Green from teakruthi

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 22nd, 2017

I like this tea. :-) Its flavor reminds me of green teas I had while living in Japan. The tea doesn't go bitter too easily, and it does a great job infusing multiple times. I've gotten four decent cups out of a teaspoon worth of dry leaf. This is no doubt partly due to their being curled. The leaves expand quite a bit.

Mythical Green from teakruthi

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Feb. 6th, 2017

I reacted to this very similarly to how I did to Teakruthi's other green tea, the Green Valley. I thought it tasted like a good but inexpensive Chinese green tea, and as such I'd be unlikely to buy it because it was so expensive. It didn't stand out and especially did not seem on the level of Chinese teas in this pr...

Sencha from Basilur

Style: Sencha – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 30th, 2017

The last of the Basilur teas I picked up at a friend's wedding, and unfortunately, one of the least satisfying.

The tea bag didn't smell great, but upon brewing I was surprised by a more pleasing aroma. Like other lower-quality senchas I've tried, and somewhat like bancha, this one had a distinct corn aroma.

Organic Green Dragon from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Dragon Well Tea – Region: China

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 17th, 2017

I was eager to try this because it was the only pure green tea in tea bags sold by Mighty Leaf, other than their hojicha which is roasted and does not taste at all like a green tea.

I wasn't crazy about this tea; if I had to divide all dragon wells into "good dragonwell" vs. "bad dragonwell" this one would be at the...

Green Valley from teakruthi

Style: Green Tea – Region: Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 17th, 2017

I enjoyed this tea but thought it the most overpriced of Teakruthi's offerings so far.

Dry leaf smells quite good, like a Chinese tea, a little vegetal and slightly floral, suggesting of a slight edge. It reminds me of chun mee both in smell and appearance, but is more vegetal.

I like this tea but it can get ove...

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 9th, 2017

I usually think of tea as being more about the aroma than the flavor, but this tea was intensely flavorful, and I thought its flavor was what made it most interesting and enjoyable.

This tea was very similar overall to the Organic Sencha also sold by Harney & Sons. The main difference I noticed initially was that t...

Emperor's Clouds and Mist Green Tea from Teavana

Style: Green Tea – Region: China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 29th, 2016

This is a very nice tea. The trick is to rein in it's flavor, because it is VERY strong.

I typically brew half the amount of leaf I would normally. Cast iron, 1.5 - 2 minutes. Keep water cooler (75-80*C).

1st steep: Vegetal and grassy with a hint of sweetness and a touch of smokiness. An intense freshness.

An unopened and sealed box of 20 bags was available at an estate sale, so I grabbed it with no particular expectations. It delivered no particular impression, so I guess you can say expectations were met! :-)

The tea tasted like a fairly standard-order green tea, neither bad nor excellent in any given way. It is...

I just received a package of this Kukicha today, and immediately decided to give it a go.

Lately I've been brewing in a pseudo-gong fu style...using a lidded tasting set as my gaiwan (actually works quite well). But I recently ordered a couple of gaiwans that should be here soon.

Nov. 18th, 2016

I love the quality of the wellness products available at Mood & Mind.
So a while back when I found that they offered a few teas, I immediately ordered their Houjicha.

I was not disappointed. Roasted leaves and twigs smell subtle but also rich.
Brews up a nice brown color with flavors that remind me of Autumn. ...

This is a really nice green tea. Pretty mellow throughout, but with a nice crisp finish that sets it apart from other types of greens. Nice clean mouthfeel, not much lingering going on. I get a nice quenching feeling I find uncommon with a hot cup of tea.

As a bagged tea, this is one of the better ones that I have had in 4-5 years. It keeps surprising me. Yes, its wonderful! Herbaceous, green grassy flavour. I found a perky-ness to its aroma, good going Stash. Wondering if it is Japanese tea?

The first time I tried this tea I was unimpressed, but it grew on me, and I also started liking it more when I brewed it with boiling water. I still don't like it anywhere near as much as I like the black tea from the same estate, which I think is otherworldly and among the best black teas I've ever tried. At best th...

Aug. 17th, 2016

Meh. I had this at a SPA no less - I guess they buy their green tea bags in bulk from Costco. While this was drinkable, it was by no means enjoyable. On a cold day I guess it beats a cut of hot water? But so weak and non-descript tasting.

Meh.

There are better options out there.
Sometimes, in an attempt to s...

I am a big fan of pinhead gunpowder (Green) tea - and it is fun to watch it steep/brew as all the little balls unfurl. This one by Stash is moderately priced. Pinhead is never (or not that I have seen) sold in bags/sachets as you need it loos to watch it work its magic.

I drink this neat - (Hot) or possibly with a...

Blah. This is another cheapie-green tea that will do in a pinch - or during times of desperation. There are way better teas on the market. Super cheap. Taste moderately vegetal and green - a good bit of astringency. Must be allowed to steep for 3-4 minutes.

Basic. Cheap. Fair.

This is a Mediocre, easy to find (at every TJ's) green tea with a slight "green grassy" taste. Not horrible, but not delicious. There are way better teas (some cheaper, some more expensive) that simply taste fresher and better.

Seemed a little stale tasting - even though I just bought it. Well, at least I did not...

An acquired taste for some although I like it - not the cheapest tea to buy and not really worth it if youre not into it. Can understand that as the color is not initially appealing to new tasters. I find it better than economy greens which often lack flavor

I loved this, it's a strong tea, nutty and toasty, but with deep vegetal undertones. I did not tire of drinking it and I could imagine happily drinking this every day.

The dry leaf has a potent aroma that evolves quite a lot as I smell it. It starts off a bit in-your-face, and I found myself slightly taken aback b...
