My first experience with this tea wasn't good. The taste was off and the effect it had on me was bad. I notified the seller I bought it from and got a replacement. While the experience with the replacement was bet...

Apr. 14th, 2018

A pleasant green tea with a smooth, mild flavor that tasted a lot better when brewed more strongly. Easy to drink and I'd imagine this would appeal to a broad audience, with perhaps an exception for people who think green tea is bland or weak, because this was on the milder side.

Thank you to Simpson & Vail for the ...

This was an exceptional tea and one of my favorite that I've sampled in a very long time. It was somewhat like other Yunnan teas but had unique lemony notes. Thank you to Simpson & Vail for the sample! I'm excited because this one sparked me adding a new sub-region to RateTea, it's the first tea we've listed from Cang...

A favorite of mine. Lots of rose flavor and aroma mixed with a Chinese black tea makes for a lovely cup! It doesn't taste artificial at all - I'm guessing the rose effect is coming from real roses. And the price ($5 for 100 grams in 2018) is fantastic, given the quality.

Very tasty, with a light, green smokiness blending with the sweet, floral flavor. Clearly an above average jasmine tea.

The picture is a little deceptive - it appears to be packed with dried blueberries, but so far I haven't seen any. It is a bland green tea with blueberry flavoring, which makes it taste like chewing gum. This would probably be OK in the summer, maybe on ice.

I'll confess I tried this tea after being intrigued at reading the legend of the Big Red Robe. Glad I did. I wonder if a monkey really picked this?

This is my new favorite tea. It has more body and flavor than the more delicate oolong teas. I usually give it a bit more tea and a longer steep than the usual recommen...

This tea was good, but it just didn't wow me the way I would need a tea in this price range to do in order to want to buy it.

The dry leaf smells exquisite, multifaceted, and hard to describe. Although the color is dark, the smell resembles green teas in some ways. Softly toasty and bready, hinting at floral and s...

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....

Okay, third time's a charm... Finally, I got something more drinkable out of this one! In the end, it actually reminded me quite a bit of TeaVivre's organic gunpowder green tea, with its smoky, almost pepper-like flavor. Here are the measurements that worked for me:

Feb. 13th, 2018

Firstly, I made this tea at 185(90 Celsius) degrees for about 3 minutes. The first steeping was very nutty and I loved the taste very much, it had a lettuce taste which I would normally dislike but in this tea it worked. later steepings were lighter in taste and less nutty. I got 3 steepings using 1.5 teaspoons of tea,...

A truly great tea!
I brew this with one teaspoon of tea per cup(about 1.5 grams I think) And I get 3 steepings. The aroma is nice but indescribable, and the taste is almost the same way. It has nutty notes and is very... "minerally". A pretty good value at $17 per 100g but definitely not cheap either.

Feb. 11th, 2018

Firstly, this tea is obviously VERY high quality and I could tell that right when I opened up the sample. The aroma of the dry leaf was fairly vegetal(spinach/kale) which is not what I am looking for in a tea, but the taste was much less so, especially when brewing for 2 mins instead of the 3-5 which is recommended.

Didn't particularly smell nice at all. It smelled of a salty seaweed with a nuttiness to it. The flavor was much better though and mostly got rid of the seaweed saltiness. Overall, what you'd expect from a genmaicha tea. Price isn't as much of a steal as I thought, because if you use the recommended amount(10g), it cos...

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...

Not my favorite dragonwell, but a decent example of the style. Attractive leaves are nice and flat. Nuttier, rather than toastier flavor and aroma, and fairly sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. That said, when it’s time to reorder, I’ll try one of Upton’s other teas of this style instead.

It strikes me as a little e...

Probably my favorite oolong, and one of my favorite teas — which is saying something, because I don’t care for most oolongs. I’ve been drinking it for years. I usually brew it to sort of a medium strength, using about 190-degree water (or in a pinch, whatever temperature of water comes out of the industrial cof...

Investigating the dry bag (looks and aroma), then the wet bag in-cup, I expected the ginger to have a lot more kick. Not that I thought it would treat the epiglottis as a punching bag, like Vernors soda, or the strong "Ginger Beer" I often drank in college...but this presentation did set expectations that reality coul...

This is by far the best tea I have tasted. It has a smooth, delicate jasmine aroma without the bitterness. It piques my senses. Has a regal, elegant taste and doesnt cling to the palette. Blends well with fruit teas like mango and other citrus fruit.

Firstly, this tea reminds me of the garden section of the home depot. Almost a clone of the smell(or I'm smell hallucinating). The aroma is extremely nice and is of course very jasmine. The flavor is amazing and has an undertone of a golden osmanthus oolong taste. Other than that, the jasmine taste is very smooth and s...

This is an extremely good beginner Pu Erh. It has a very deep flavor that tastes like how the woods smell after rainfall. And has a leafy and tree bark aroma. Also, the hazelberry evens everything out perfectly, and gives a nice flavor that doesn't take anything away from the tea. I've found that i could only get a few...

This is my absolute favorite go-to green oolong tea. The aroma is pleasant and not very strong. But the aroma is the least of my worries when buying tea. The flavor is amazing, and I have trouble describing it. It lasts me 4 western style infusions and is an amazing value at 2.5 cents per cup when buying in pounds(or 1...
