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...

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...

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

This is one of the most complex and unusual teas I've ever tried -- I loved it!Read Full Review
I was especially surprised by this tea's taste, since I'm accustomed to my green teas being subtly flavored. The taste was an unexpected blend of cooked vegetables and toasty tones, reminding me of asparagus paired with pea soup,,, whic...
Style: Dragon Well Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Aug. 19th, 2013
It's been a long time since I've had a Dragon Well. I thought this was a good sample, yummy and mellow, and nice to relax with at lunch... albeit a little pricey for everyday. It reminded me a little of pea soup, in a good way mind you. I didn't taste chestnut hints, as the description suggestions, but I'm not disap...Read Full Review

Oh my gosh, I loved this tea! This is on my list of next tea purchases, alongside barley tea. I was really surprised how much this tea reminded me of barely tea, scent-wise, and I enjoyed it's dark roasty tones. Its quality was beyond what I usually expect from a tea bag.Read Full Review
Style: Green Tea – Region: Hubei, China73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10
Aug. 5th, 2013
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

Now this was more my type of green tea! While not my favorite, I thought it was much better than the last Teavivre green I had, Nonpareil Te Gong Huang Shan Mao Feng. Read Full Review
Brewing a light green color, this tea was smooth and subtly flavored. I thought it tasted great both as a hot and cold tea.
Style: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Anhui, China50 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 5/10
Jun. 25th, 2013
While I hate to review one of Teavivre's teas so poorly since I'm usually a big fan, this particular tea was not for me! This tea didn't have much of a smell or a taste. I brewed it a couple of times, with different temperatures and steeping lengths, each time it was the same, tasting more like hot water than tea to ...Read Full Review
Style: Guricha – Region: Saga, Japan63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10

I haven't had much Guricha so I can't compare this tea -- overall I thought it was good.Read Full Review
I liked this tea warm -- it was smooth and had a subtle flavor.
My only qualm was that it tasted a little burnt and strong when it got cold -- blech! I wouldn't recommend this for an iced tea.

I was craving coffee the day that I had it and felt like it was a suitable replacement! It smelled and tasted roasted, and I felt like it was a little thicker than your average tea - especially surprising for a green. Overall I really enjoyed this tea and would have it again, especially if coffee is not in sight!Read Full Review

I thought this tea was really good. The smell of the dried leaf was fresh and grassy, and the taste of the tea was equally fresh. At first, I didn't think it was terribly outstanding, until I had a second cup- I was impressed that the second brew was just as good as the first!Read Full Review

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...Read Full Review

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: Mao Feng Green Tea – Region: Anhui, China93 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 10/10
May. 17th, 2012
This is the best green tea that I've had yet, and possibly my favorite tea! Paired with lunch on a hot day, I was extremely satisfied by its taste! It was refreshing and smooth, and had no bitterness whatsoever ( which is one of my usual complaints with tea). While it is a little pricey, I feel like this tea is wort...Read Full Review

Apr. 24th, 2012
I just had this tea with my lunch and was surprised to see all of the negative ratings about it. Like the description I found that it has a light taste and to me it was crisp and refreshing. It had a different flavor than most green teas I've tried and I feel like tangy was a good way to describe it, but I didn't encou...Read Full Review

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
Style: Dragon Well Tea – Region: China63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 6/10
Apr. 1st, 2012
I've never had Dragon Well Tea so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up enjoying it. This tea was more herby or grassy than what I'm used to, but it wasn't overbearing. I thought it was pretty smooth and it didn't leave any strange aftertastes - although it's not my favorite I would drink this tea again!Read Full Review
