Guizhou Twist from Adagio Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Guizhou, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 6th, 2018

This is an unusually fruity green tea. The dry leaves have a strong floral and stone fruit aroma. The first time I tried it I used too much tea and brewed it for too long, and the result was overly sweet and astringent. The second time I used a little less tea and brewed it for around 1:40, resulting in a more complex ...

Gunpowder from Adagio Teas

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

May. 5th, 2018

Gunpowder isn’t my favorite tea, so my rating may not be entirely fair. That said, I like this tea. It’s smoky and a little vegetal. Full-bodied and smooth. I wouldn’t drink it every day, but it’s a nice change of pace. If you like strong and smoky green teas, you might like it better.

I can’t compare...

China Special Snow Dragon Green Tea from Simpson & Vail

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 ...

The flavor is lightly smoky and mossy, with some tannins. Good.

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,...

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. Wh...

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...

Overall this was not a great tea at all. I used no sugar and steeped for just above 2 minutes at 170 degrees. Although I fiddled the temperature around with no success.
The tea smells nice and is almost fruity.
Everything comes crashing down in the flavor though. It tastes like I took old vegetable broth and poured i...

One of my favourite green teas. Doesn't go bitter (leave for less than two minutes) and it tastes so smooth and nice. It is my go to tea in Starbucks these days.

I got this box free with an order of loose Ten Ren tea. The normal price is $4 for a box of 20 tea bags.

The individual bags are sealed in plastic for freshness and the aroma is quite strong when opened. It doesn't smell like dragon well to me, though, but like cheap gunpowder or pearl green. The dry tea is chopped ...

Even before I brewed this, the colour of the leaves reminded me of Vietnamese green teas: olive green with some grey and white leaves. The aroma and the colour of the liqueur also reminded me of Vietnamese green teas.
The aroma and flavour made me think of Simon Lévelt's Yen Bai Groen and a brandless tea called Vietn...

I didn't try a sample before ordering this one in a 25g bag (my mistake). I was really surprised with how little flavor it had. As with the Spring Laoshan Green and Spring Reserve Laoshan Green, there's a savory profile, though this is more delicate and sweet than the others. But, the notes didn't last for more than a ...

I didn't try a sample pack of this one before ordering the larger 25g bags, because it was less expensive, so it wasn't a big deal to just order the bigger bags. Well, after trying it, I could see why it was less expensive. I got almost no brews out of this. It's really low-quality tea. Even taking into account the fac...

I was really impressed with this when I was trying it in a sample pack. I got a lot of brews out of it, it had a lot of really nice savory notes (nutty, umami, mineral/salty, etc.). But, then when I purchased it in a larger amount, it didn't have nearly as much flavor. I stored it in the same way I've stored teas from ...

I was very surprised by the flavor of this tea. It reminds me of yellow tea in that it has a sweet flavor like corn and sweet peas. But, at the same time, it also has citrus notes — mostly lime, but some traces of lemon. I found it very refreshing. There was no bitterness and little to no astringency, even after seve...

I might still have to work out some things with brewing this tea, because this second attempt tastes very different from the first.

It has a strong vegetal aroma and very little sweetness. It reminds me a little bit of Young Hyson right now which seems strange. After all, this tea is supposed to be mild whereas Youn...

It's a lovely summer day, so I cycled the 26 kilometres to De Theefabriek again. This time I didn't even visit the tea museum (which I've already seen twice), just bought teas and drank a cup of Tian Mu in the tearoom.

I feel like they always give water at 100°C and many more leaves than I'd use myself, so I only l...

I've seen Dragonwell here and there and I had the general impression that it is a pretty well-known tea with a good reputation, so i wanted to try it. (In fact, one of my proudest tea lover moments was seeing Longjing mentioned in Death's End by Liu Cixin and knowing what that is - and actually having some myself.)

I don't know what it is about this tea, but I always oversteep it. The first time I ever made it, I even forgot about it for one and a half hours. When I found it, it was cold and bitter. (In my defense, it was graduation day and I was a bit distracted.)
And just now when I wanted to review it it got too strong again,...

I wouldn't buy this again. I purchased it at the Newark, Delaware Farmer's market out of curiosity. Usually I've had better experiences with teas there, like discovering the remarkably inexpensive and high-quality Tradition brand. This was a disappointment though.

Dry leaf looks dusty silvery-green, looks a lot l...

This tea was quite expensive and it doesn't smell all that good. Especially the used leaves smell pretty bad. I still haven't figured out how to make this, but I use relatively little leaf and don't steep it for long. The result tastes all right, though. The colour of the infusion isn't very bright, a slightly dirty ye...
