This is presumably the same tea that the previous reviewers tasted, but it's packaged in individual 6g pouches (24 packets totalling 150g). At $10, I paid a little more than the previous reviewers did, as well.

That said, this is now one of my favorite green teas. I find it best with a long steep in cooler water (4-...

May. 17th, 2015

This was my first experience of this variety of tea, and I was very pleased! The aroma is wonderful—very fruity and sweet. The taste was also very sweet and delicate. There is strong floral and fruity notes while still having a hint of vegetation. Nothing too strong, just very mellow and smooth. It is almost like a c...

Apr. 19th, 2014

The aroma of the dry leaves is sweet and fresh, blending artichoke and lychee with a delicate hint of floral at the end. This tea smells like nature in springtime, bringing in the notes of fruits, flowers, and vegetation. It makes my nose happy.

The taste is quite delicate (that seems to be the key word with this te...

Nov. 8th, 2013

This tea is amazing! By far the best of this variety that I have ever tried. From the moment you open the package and see the tender curls, you are greeted by a wonderful aroma that is herbaceous, nutty, lightly smoky with a hint of citrus. This aroma persists through brewing and matches the mellow flavor.

Light gre...

An outstanding green tea and the best example of this type of tea, Bi Luo Chun, that I've sampled yet.

Dry leaf is very dusty, consisting of tender-looking curls of leaf tips, and is beautifully fragrant, suggestive of sweetness, with a strong nutty quality and a hint of smokiness.

Upon brewing, I found this tea ...

Bilouchun Green Tea from Starway

Dec. 13th, 2012

I came across this randomly at an Chinese supermarket in Philadelphia, and like the last reviewer, I think it's one of the better bargains I've ever run across. I've been using it as a nice 'everyday' sort of green tea for a while now. The large six ounce tin I bought for about four dollars is still going strong.

San Xia Cloud Mist Green Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Green Tea – Region: Jiangsu, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 12th, 2012

An unusual tea among Chinese greens, almost reminiscent of some green teas from Darjeeling and elsewhere in the the Himalayan region.

Dark, curled dry leaf with little aroma.

Brewed cup has a dark brownish-green liquor, very clear. Simpson and Vail describes this tea as vegetal, with a fresh spinach aroma, and I...

Aug. 31st, 2011

This was the second 'bargain buy' I found in the attractive black-and-green tins that have recently cropped up in Asian markets, from the import company Starway Inc. I think this tea was even more impressive than the first: at $3.98 for 6 ounces, this tea is very cheap, although significantly pricier than the other, H...
