This is truly delicious green tea! When I opened the little sample pack, I had no idea that tea could even be this fragrant. It was such an amazing scent. I brewed it at 80ºC and the flavor was just perfect. This tea has its leaves intact, not pressed or cut. They were like little curls when dry, then opened up to suc...

This is a tea I've been drinking after coming home from work. It's OK. Seems to have a very dark color, close to black tea. Not much flavor so I always put a spoonful of honey in this.

Jul. 17th, 2017

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...

This is a very curious tea. It is not aged or fermented in the typical manner in which teas are aged or fermented. Instead, the leaves are pickled. (Yes, you read that right.) You can actually smell this right away when opening a package of the tea leaves. They smell a lot like stuffed grape leaves, and the scent is in...

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...

This is some truly delicious green tea. It took me a while to brew it just right. But, with 80C water, with 3/4 tsp of leaves, brewing for 2 minutes 30 seconds, in a 4 oz gaiwan, increasing the time by 30 seconds each brewing, it was delicious. The scent is creamy, sweet, and vegetal. It's not as sweet as gyokuro (shad...

The leaves are extremely large and irregular, so much so that they don't even fit in my regular strainer.
Fun fact that I just learned: All images of teas on De Theefabriek's product pages are in exactly the same scale, and are 5 x 5 cm squares in real life. This helps give a sense of the size of the leaves.

75 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jul. 10th, 2017

This is one of my go-to green teas for daily drinking. It has a vegetal flavor with some greener, sweeter hints, but really isn't as sweet as fukamushi (green tea with a longer steaming period) or gyokuro (green tea that's shaded before harvesting). But, I like how unobtrusive it is. It's easy to drink this as a drink ...

This tea has a beautiful, roasted scent and flavor. Depending upon how it's brewed, sometimes I taste hints of vegetal green tea. Other times, it's largely a roasted flavor without any bitterness and only a slight astringency, if any. It really reminds me of autumn, and it imparts this relaxing feeling that really help...

Jul. 9th, 2017

Of all the pure teas I've gotten from David's, this is the first one to not stand out from the crowd. It is not a bad tea at all. Like mostly everything I've tried at David's, it is above average. It is just not as impressive as some of the other Greens and Oolongs I have purchased there. This is one of the lowest p...

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 took the dégustation comparée (comparative tasting) of three green teas of a higher quality. This is one of the three I was served.
I got a zhong with dry leaves in it, a small cup, and a thermos of water.
I was recommended to finish with this tea, so I tasted this one last.

The leaves are very dark green and ...

I drank this tea in the Unami Maison de Thé in Lille. It was served prepared in a small teapot. This means it was made exactly as it should, though I didn't get to see any leaves.

I don't have any prior experience with senchas, so I can't compare this with others. I have tasted a few other Vietnamese green teas, an...

I drank this tea in the Unami Maison de Thé in Lille. It was served prepared in a small teapot. This means it was made exactly as it should, though I didn't get to see any leaves.

It tasted fresh, not sweet, and very grassy, with a rich flavour. The tea in the bottom of the pot is always stronger so I got three pro...

I bought this to keep at my parents' house to use as everyday green tea. It's a bit too subtle for an everyday tea, though. I also never seem to be able to get my tea quite right here.
It is very light, but doesn't feel thin, and it has a slightly sweet aftertaste. The colour is a lovely bright greenish yellow.

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...

I always like to have a cheap gunpowder tea which I can drink as much as I like without worries. I buy 250 g or 500 g boxes from a Turkish shop, and they are incredibly cheap (this 250 g box was probably €2.25 or something). However, the brands change now and then.

This one was also incredibly cheap, but I don't l...

Since I fell in love with Nam Lanh OP from the same brand but I currently prefer green teas, I decided to try this one as it's also from Vietnam.
And I was in luck! It tastes like a green version of the Nam Lanh black tea. It smells the same and, best of all, it's got the same intense "smoldering" flavour.

It smells nice enough, but not that special. It tastes great, though. A very strong flavour. If I use too little leaf, it doesn't really have that intensity that I love about this, but if I use too much it easily gets too bitter.
It's a great everyday green tea, but I don't worry too much about running out. I like thi...

Other Vietnamese teas I've had have been fantastic, so I decided to give this a try.
It's good enough, it's got a little bit of what I love so much about Nam Lanh OP and Pin Ho Jade from De Theefabriek, the flavour I can best describe as "smoldering", especially if you use a generous amount of leaf. It's fine for two ...
