Silver Needle White Tea

Style: Silver Needle – Region: Fujian, China
Feb. 17th, 2015

A very typical silver needle, enjoyable, good quality, and true to the style, but this is a style of tea I'm not a huge fan of, especially given its high price.

Brewed 3 minutes as recommended, this was too weak for me. I preferred a single, long infusion of about 12-15 minutes.

Very low in astringency, leading ...

Snow Buds Green Tea

Style: Snow Buds – Region: Fujian, China
Aug. 13th, 2014

Tastes to me like a fresh, light green tea, though I do feel like the white tea undertones gives it a fuller flavor. Very smooth, no bitterness, a nice cup of pure tea. Slightly floral in aroma. I think I may have used too little leaf for the first cup because my only complaint is that I'd like a slightly stronger cup....

Gyokuro Green Tea

Style: Gyokuro – Region: Japan
Aug. 3rd, 2014

The flavor is complex, balanced, and delicious. It naturally tastes a bit sweet so that adding any sweetener would be...

Korea Woojeon Green Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Jeju, South Korea
Jul. 16th, 2014

This tea is a notch up from the Sejak sold by Arbor Teas, and I think it lives up to these claims--it's only a little bit pricier, but I think it's much more flavorful, aromatic, and pleasing to drink. Thank you again to Dewey for this sample!

The dry leaf of this smells deep, dark, fruity, and herbaceous, reminisc...

Gyokuro Green Tea

Style: Gyokuro – Region: Japan
Jun. 19th, 2014

Relatively inexpensive among Gyokuro, especially for being organic. Pleasant, and easy to brew, but less aromatic than other samples of this type of tea I've tried.

Very long, straight leaves, very dark green. Dry leaf has a pleasant aroma, similar to some sencha, and a bit nondescript.

Brews up a cup that isn'...
