Green Tea from Wegmans

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

83 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 21st, 2010

Wegmans green tea is one of the better cheap green teas. It has a basic green tea taste. I could drink it every morning. It's a good stand-by, especially for those of us on a budget. It is really cheap but has a good flavor.

Excellent, concentrated, grassy but not Spinach-ey, altogether stimulating and simultaneously soothing drink. Like drinking green amber.
Not a wuss tea; highly recommended.

SEN-CHA Green Tea from Maeda-en

57 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 17th, 2010

Aroma mostly of sweet corn. There's a hint of roast in there too...but it's not always pleasant...it almost resembles the stale coffee aroma you get if you run hot water through a coffee machine that hasn't been cleaned in a while. Slightly sweet and also with some pleasant bitterness, and very little astringency. T...

Triple-Cup Extra Green from Foojoy

Apr. 12th, 2010

Aroma fresh and grassy, with a hint of toastiness and a faint suggestion of mint. Very delicate flavor: I'd call this one slightly brisk but not bitter. Remarkably full-bodied given the lightness of the flavor. The astringency builds somewhat upon drinking it but even by the end it's still enjoyable.

This tea is ...

Mar. 25th, 2010

This quickly became one of my favorite teas.

This tea has a very delicate yet distinct flavor, milder than a dragonwell, but somewhat similar.

The delicateness of this tea make it a perfect afternoon or evening sip and I find they inspire relaxation.

One of the more unusual looking leaves when dry, simil...

Mar. 25th, 2010

While not a fan of the bagged teas in general, this one is not too bad. What makes it even better is that now Starbucks has converted their tea inventory into whole leaf varieties of the same tea.

The whole leaf version of this tea is pretty good, and since there is a starbucks on every corner, it's a good choice w...

Brews a rich golden color. The aroma of this tea is more similar to a dragonwell tea than any other green tea I've tried, but the overall experience of drinking it is very different. Very aromatic, with a slightly toasty aroma. The flavor is muted and the tea has a cooler quality than dragonwell, with a hint of smok...

Mar. 9th, 2010

These teabags are strong, with a generous quantity of leaf. The roast is noticeable but light, and this hojicha has a fresh, crisp quality, more like green tea. It's not terribly complex, but overall, I think this is a very good tea that offers outstanding value, especially among teabags.

These teabags are versati...

Mar. 7th, 2010

On the heavily roasted and dark side, more coffee-like in aroma and fewer of the green tea qualities come through. Good, but not terribly complex.

There also isn't the most generous quantity of leaf in the teabag. The company recommends 8 oz. of water per teabag, and a long infusion. I brewed it this way and it w...

Mar. 7th, 2010

Upton seems to excel at inexpensive, organic Chinese green teas, and this one is no exception. The thin, wiry leaves have an interesting appearance both before and after brewing.

Aroma is very grassy and a little bit vegetal, with some dark floral tones almost more suggestive of a black tea. Grassier, sweeter, and...

Mar. 2nd, 2010

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.

The aroma is very complex: significantly grassier than any other Chun Mee I've tried...

this tea was a major disappointment. was hoping it would be good! flat, tasteless. pale green, almost clear liquor, which is fine in a high quality tea, but this just lacked any vibrancy, life, or flavor.

while it was fun to get it, and have the tin, i wouldn't recommend this tea at all unless us want to say u trie...

Feb. 26th, 2010

As a fan of pre-rain Dragon Well I am always anxious to find one with a good flavor for a reasonable price. This one is a great balance of flavor and aroma for a very good price considering it is a pre-Qing Ming tea.
I keep this one on hand throughout the year and look forward to the new harvest.

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 10th, 2010

The aroma of the dry tea is straw-like, but the brewed tea is a lot more like sencha, including a hint of the characteristic seaweed-like quality. In many ways it's typical for a Japanese green tea. There are a few woody tones in the aroma but they have a very different character from the woody qualities present in s...

Feb. 2nd, 2010

This tea has a pungent aroma unlike any other green tea I've sampled before. It reminds me of a hoppy beer like an India Pale Ale, and the bitterness in the tea is similar to that of a strong IPA. The aroma is more like a typical black tea than a green tea to me--I would probably guess incorrectly that it was black t...

Feb. 1st, 2010

I have started to see enough of a pattern that I can at least suspect that I tend to like green teas from Sri Lanka.

The dry leaves of this tea are whole and very full, slightly curled, and dark green, and a few of the leaves have a reddish tinge. The dry leaves have a tobacco-like smell.

The cup is richly aroma...

This one surprised me; Upton threw it in as a free sample. I probably would have not bought it on my own because of the price, but now that I've tried it I think it offers pretty good value, although it is still expensive.

When brewed, this tea is opaque, less so than matcha but more so than most other sencha that ...

My first Indonesian tea sampled, and I was a bit disappointed, even though I like this style of tea.

This tea is considerably less smoky than most Chinese gunpowder teas I've had...only a moderate amount of smoke. It has a cool quality to the aroma, and a tangy flavor with some bitterness. More similar in all resp...

Jan. 2nd, 2010

I would not recognize this tea as sencha from either the appearance of the leaves or the aroma of the dried leaf or brewed cup. There's only a faint suggestion of the characteristic sencha aroma, barely emerging and then vanishing.

The aroma is vegetal, but less seaweedy than sencha, and more savory. Tastes more s...

I loved this tea although I'm not usually crazy about green. It avoided the planty, health-food associations I usually make with green teas. Instead, there was a lovely, rather robust fragrance, almost floral. This is probably the one green that I will stock in my tea cupboard.

Very different from any other green tea I've tried. Spicy aroma, complex...some fruity qualities, but aroma is mostly of spice. Very full-bodied, rich in flavor...tangy and yet without being heavy or too sour. Not very bitter and only a little astringent. I'm not tasting the "maltiness" in the description.

This is a cheap green tea in a bag, but for that exact thing you can't beat liptons. The flavour is great. 100 bag box can be had for about $5. Great deal and beats most bagged green tea.

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...
