First Grade Gunpowder Green from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: China

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 5th, 2024

There is not much flavor here, but there are no unpleasant flavors or aromas either. I have certainly had stronger gunpowder teas, but this one is very easy to drink, and offered at a low price.

May. 31st, 2024

I love teas with a toasted flavor like this. This tea is certainly a great example of a good hojicha. This tea is sweet and thick bodied, slightly astringent in a good way, and of course has that wonderful toasted flavor. The aroma is very nice and also has the toasted smell. This tea is yet another old tea I'm reviewi...

Colombian Wiry Green Organic Tea (Formerly Colombian Green Tea) from Simpson & Vail

Style: Green Tea – Region: Colombia

68 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 24th, 2024

This tea seems pretty good quality and has a nice, but mild green tea aroma. The price is reasonable and the tea is good enough that I think the value is fair. It tastes like a classic green tea however it is slightly too bitter and astringent for my taste. I have a lower threshold for these qualities than some and it ...

Mao Feng Green Tea from Teapigs

79 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 6th, 2024

I've only chugged one other green tea of the Mao Feng type (a Tazo bagged offering), and enjoyed that, so I figured I'd try a bigger-leaf, sacheted version. This is one of the best green teas I've had, lots of personality, and mostly worth the slight premium one pays when shoveling a stack of bills across the counter ...

Jun. 24th, 2023

Lovely seaweedy and nutty flavour. The tea leaves are very delicate and when steeped they show a nice vibrant green colour. Due to the small leaves the flavour releases quickly. I steeped 5 grams of this tea in a gaiwan for 10 seconds for the first 3 steeps and afterwards I increased it gradually. Could enjoy around 12...

Steeped 5 gram of this green tea at 85ºC for 10 seconds in a gaiwan for the first 3 steeps, and afterwards, I gradually increased the steeping time by 5 seconds per steep. Unlike like green teas such as maofeng and anjibai, this green tea is savoury and robust with sweet, nutty, and vegetal notes. Excellent value for ...

Solid decaf bagged green tea. Though I like caffeination, I have found I actually often like decaf teas for their flavor.

I picked up a little can of this inexpensive matcha at a Chinese food shop, and was pleasantly surprised. It is smooth and drinkable, with a bit of fresh grain and rice in the flavor. I have had some low-cost matchas that are bitter and cheap tasting, but this is not bad at all.

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 20th, 2022

Not my favorite tea. A little bit soapy and bitter tasting and there wasn’t much interesting stuff going on to redeem it. The aroma was really weak too so overall not worth it for me. I’m giving it a 50 because it’s not that great but it’s also like not too horrible. I wouldn’t buy it again though.

Aug. 16th, 2022

This is an unexciting but perfectly drinkable sencha, that is offered at a fair price by Upton. There is a little iron and spinach in the flavor, but not enough to be irritating. It wouldn't hurt to some of this in your cupboard.

The 200g package is heavy, sealed plastic. It's not resealable, so have another airtight container to put it into after opening.

The dry tea is bright green and broken into medium-small pieces. The initial aroma is strong and grassy.

The directions say to use 3g of tea per 100ml, boiling water, and to steep for 3...

May. 25th, 2022

I bought this as a box of 40 tea bags. Inside were two sealed Mylar sleeves of otherwise unwrapped tea bags. I opened the first sleeve and transferred the tea bags to an airtight container.

The dry tea smells faintly of green tea. Brewing, it has a kind of strange, savory smell, like potato soup, but with a vegetal ...

May. 25th, 2022

The tea bags are wrapped in paper inside a cellophane-sealed cardboard box. After opening the package, I put them into an airtight container.

The dry tea has a faint, grassy smell. The brewing tea smells quite a bit fresher than I expected. It's vegetal, slightly tannic and recognizably green tea.

May. 9th, 2022

The aroma is a mild sweet, I'm reminded of honey. The flavor is 'clean', with a slight sweet after taste that for me does not linger on the tongue. The liquor brews (5 min) to a pleasant medium brown. Very enjoyable.

Feb. 12th, 2022

As with many inexpensive, bagged green teas, this didn't offer much dry-bag or in-cup aroma, but what there was had a pleasantly grassy to vegetal characteristic that carried over somewhat to the taste, which was quite mild with hints of celery. In that sense, if Salada removed the last "a" from their name, it wouldn'...

Nov. 7th, 2021

Thanks Dewey for sharing this with me! This was a smooth, mellow, mild green tea that was easy to brew and enjoy.

The leaf of this smells very fresh, a sort of sweet fragrance, almost floral, typical of high-quality, tippy Chinese green teas. It's pleasant but also hard to anticipate how it is going to taste, so I w...

This was a robust green tea that was challenging to brew, but rewarding when I got it right. Thank you to Dewey for sharing this one with me!

The leaf is beautiful, wiry, slightly curly, and diverse in color, from dusty dark green to silvery-gray with a yellowish tinge. It has a potent fragrance, with a hint of camp...

Landing at a Trader Joe's store in Tucson while on a photography road trip out thataway, I bought a box of this, as a presumably acceptable substitute for some of the truly terrible, off-brand and store-brand (here's looking at you, Great Value) bagged green teas offered at motels and campgrounds. It was, but still fa...

After my experiences with other teas in the Steep line, I'm a little disappointed in this tea. It's not terrible, though.

The dry tea smells like dusty hay, vegetal, but otherwise nondescript.

The brewing tea smells grassy, but the aroma is a bit weak. There's also a sort of "shrimp" note that I've detected in ot...

Jul. 9th, 2021

This is a new one for me - a fukamushi tea. It looks like a bancha, but according to Upton's website fukamushi is its own category. A websearch shows me that it is a moderately to fully steamed green tea, usually a sencha. This has a wonderful earthy, fresh woodlands aroma. The taste is light and leafy, with a fair...

Jun. 11th, 2021

Quite simply, this is one of the worst teas I've tried. For starters, it has no dry-bag aroma at all. I suppose that's better than a noxious smell, since it's basically the scent of the teabag itself. Then the in-cup and wet-bag scents resembled a balanced blend of very faint green tea with wet paper. Something abo...
