Organic Pinhead Gunpowder Green Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Jiangxi, China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 17th, 2016

I am a big fan of pinhead gunpowder (Green) tea - and it is fun to watch it steep/brew as all the little balls unfurl. This one by Stash is moderately priced. Pinhead is never (or not that I have seen) sold in bags/sachets as you need it loos to watch it work its magic.

I drink this neat - (Hot) or possibly with a...

Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Green Tea – Region: Jiangxi, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
May. 17th, 2015

The first observation I had of this tea is the wonderful deep and even color of the leaves. The aroma of the dried leaves is very pleasant and slightly vegetal. After steeping, I noticed that the color is very light, but the aroma and taste is more bold than expected, with a strong but still pleasant and smooth taste. ...

Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Green Tea – Region: Jiangxi, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 28th, 2015

The aroma of the tea (which is also known as Clouds and Mist Tea) is a blend of nutty and vegetal, it has a bit of spinach, some toasted sesame, a distinct yet mild roasted peanut note, a sharp note of artichoke, and a finish of raw asparagus. It smells super green, and very fresh, like a pile of vegetables right out o...

Sep. 7th, 2014

Extremely satisfying tea! I really like this one. The dry leaf had a wonderful, unique aroma that made me very excited to try the tea. Once brewed, it has a light herbal/spicy flavor that I find extremely pleasing and that is well balanced with the tea flavor. It's a comforting drink that I could imagine myself drinkin...

Jun. 6th, 2014

A brisk, potent green tea that I found was equally good for morning or afternoon drinking. I can't see everyone liking this, as many Americans seem to prefer milder tasting green teas, but this is my type of tea.

I can't even begin to describe how good the leaf of this tea smells...it's nutty, toasty, and vegetal, ...

Keemun Black Tea from Little Red Cup

Style: Keemun – Region: Wuyuan, Jiangxi, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 3rd, 2013

The aroma is very rich, sweet, and smoky. It reminds me of a sweet red wine. Once brewed it takes on the aroma of an oak cask and it is very pleasant.

The taste is mildly smoky and sweet with a tanginess that reminds me of an oak cask. Perfect tea for an autumn evening!

May. 10th, 2012

I love this tea, but I it's not a plain old black tea. It's incredibly smoky, and a little goes a long way. It's great in the morning but even better as a pick me up in the afternoon.

Not your normal black tea! Try it.

Bai Mu Dan from Little Red Cup

Style: White Peony Tea – Region: Wuyuan, Jiangxi, China

97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
May. 10th, 2012

I love white tea. I've had countless varieties. Bai mudan has never been my favorite. In my experience, it never matched up to bai hao yinzhen. This particular bai mudan compltely revolutionized my view.

The taste is just as pure as any yinzhen, but much sweeter. You won't need sugar, honey, or even a stevia leaf fo...

Wild tea Orchid Fairy Twig, first day harvest from Life in Teacup

Mar. 24th, 2011

I have only tried one other green tea from Wuyuan, but there was something very distinctive about this tea that reminded me of that first tea, Upton's ZG36, as soon as I took the first sip. Both teas share a particularly distinctive grassy aroma, with both floral and vegetal tones.

This tea, on the other hand, has...

Mar. 7th, 2011

Dry, this tea carries the wonderful scent of new hay drying in the fields, that indescribeble mix of clover, timothy,trefoil and other grasses. The brewing aroma adds chocolate, fresh wash and good, clean earth. The taste does not disappoint. There is a bit of chocolate, a bit of floral, a bit of honey, all on a bas...

Fair Trade True Green Tea from Wild Harvest Organic

Style: Green Tea – Region: Jiangxi, China

27 / 100 Aroma: 2/10 Flavor: 1/5 Value: 2/5
Sep. 1st, 2010

I brewed with water at a lower temperature, but other than that I brewed as instructed.

Aroma strongly suggestive of cinnamon, unusual for a green tea. Lacks the grassy qualities inherent in many green teas, but the aftertaste is similar to the aftertaste left by sencha. Overall though, aroma is weak. If "subtle ...

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...
