Picture of Gyokuro Reserve Green Tea

Gyokuro Reserve Green Tea from Maeda-en

Style: Gyokuro – Region: Japan

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 20th, 2018

This and the Maeda-en Gyokuro Grower's Select go hand-in-hand. This is the sweet one of the two while the Select is more savory/umami. Both brew well very consistently (which is great, considering that gyokuro is an expensive tea and not something you'd want to waste).

I had good results with the following brewing m...

Gyokuro Grower's Select Green Tea from Maeda-en

Style: Gyokuro – Region: Japan

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 20th, 2018

This and the Maeda-en Gyokuro Grower's Reserve go hand-in-hand, because one is more savory and the other is more sweet. One of my favorite things about both of these is that they brew well very consistently (which is great, considering that gyokuro is an expensive tea and not something you'd want to waste).

I had go...

Organic Silken Pu-erh from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Pu-erh Tea – Region: Yunnan, China

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 8th, 2018

I was in the area, so I decided to check out a David's Tea shop. In all honesty, it looked more like a candy store than a tea shop. It had all these colorful spoons and containers and most of their "teas" looked more like trail mix or confetti than tea (some of them had the ingredients to trail mix in them). I'd writte...

Liu Bao Tea Cake 100g from Three Cranes and Six Forts

Style: Dark Tea – Region: Guangxi, China

0 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 1/5
Apr. 18th, 2018

I had some very bad results with this tea, I'm sorry to say. It made me feel as if I'd been poisoned. The cake itself didn't smell too bad, it actually had a decent scent to it — like pu-erh, but different in a way. I wasn't sure if the scent was sweet in the way that some pu-erh can mature into having a sweet, sugar...

Zhu Xiang Ji brand Yu Lei dark tea from ESGREEN

Style: Dark Tea – Region: Hunan, China

95 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 15th, 2018

If you could brew the experience of sitting in a lush pine forest after a light rain, with a distant, vague scent of wood fire smoke on the air, this would be it. This tea has a clean, dark, wet earth note that underlies a pine note with an almost menthol-like quality to it, and a touch of smoke that comes in at times....

1953 Fucha Anhua Dark Tea Royal Fu Tea Brick from Baishaxi

Style: Dark Tea – Region: Hunan, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 13th, 2018

I wanted to redo this review because I gave this tea some time to age, suspecting that the smokiness would diminish, and it did. So, the experience of drinking this tea is a very different one now. I managed to brew it using a gaiwan, not a teapot with a mesh strainer, and there still wasn't too much sediment. The tast...

Organic Gunpowder Green Tea (Zhu Cha) from TeaVivre

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Fuding, Fujian, China

85 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 9th, 2018

The first time I ever tried gunpowder tea, I hated it. So, I came to this tea very skeptical. I also don't like smoky flavors, so that was another potential issue. But, even with all of that working against it, I ended up loving this tea. It has a spicy note like black pepper, there's a moderately rich, buttery quality...
