Fairly sharp, light green tea. Not bad, but not much depth to it.

Jan. 9th, 2019

The flavor of this tea is quite mild, but pleasant. There's a nice bitterness on the sides of the tongue and just enough astringency to feel a bit "fuzzy". There's a hint of cabbage or broccoli flavor with a hint of spiciness. This tea's a bit sweeter than other green teas.

I'm tasting this tea alongside several oth...

Jan. 9th, 2019

I occasionally drink the decaffeinated version of this tea because it still tastes a bit like green tea. It turns out that that's exactly how the caffeinated version tastes—a bit like green tea. There's some vegetal freshness and a little grassy bitterness on the back of the tongue, but that's pretty much it. If you ...

Jan. 9th, 2019

As the other reviewers mentioned, ignore the directions. I prepared the tea using 8 ounces of 175°F water for four minutes (which is a bit longer than is generally suggested for green teas, but I find I like it that way).

The tea in the square, nylon bag is chopped, but not as finely as most bagged tea and is mixed...

Even though this isn't a Stash tea, it was well stashed—just a couple packets jammed discreetly in the middle of a bunch of bags of Bigelow Green at a conference, and only the first morning. Fortunately I noticed and grabbed them: one for there, one to bring home.

I'm not much for detecting subtleties, and pro...

Dec. 4th, 2018

After being disappointed with Organic Herbie's other teas, I was a bit apprehensive about trying this, but I turned out to like it a surprising amount. I also notice an inconsistency in the marketing: the description says it is grown in the Wuyi mountains, which are located in Fujian province, but the website says that...

The dry tea in the bag is chopped quite fine, but smells really nice. Once the water's added, the aroma of the young tips comes through very clearly, smelling very similar to silver needle white teas.

The first taste is surprisingly sweet with a strong vegetal finish. The flavor is strong even while hot, but there's...

Dec. 1st, 2018

This tea has a mild roasty and vegetal aroma which I enjoy. The flavor is pretty good and also has a kind of roasted quality to it. I enjoy this green tea because it is very smooth and is definitely less astringent than many other green teas I’ve had. It still does have a slight astringent aftertaste in my throat but...

Nov. 24th, 2018

The first time I made this tea, I didn't get much flavour out of it, so this time I used more leaves than I usually do for green tea - at least, I tried to. The leaves are large and twisted into irregular shapes, so it's not very dense. I think I could have used even more.
The liquor is rather light but it's a really ...

This is a Whole Foods tea given to me by my sister-in-law in Colorado, who gets lots of organic and medicinal teas at the plethora of health-food shops in her area. She likes it when I try her favorite teas. So every time I return from there, I have a few more to review here. :-)

A bold-flavored green tea producing a pale-colored cup with a brisk character. Very enjoyable and easy to brew and drink.

The dry leaf has a tightly curled appearance, a lot like Bi Luo Chun but more irregular. It's very fragrant and strong, grassy and somewhat smoky, with a hint of bready qualities. The smell sugge...

I'd really like to say something positive about this tea, but it's really just not good. I gave it several chances. I brewed it first using the method that worked reliably with the Maeda-en gyokuro, but it was bitter and made me extremely jittery. I tried converting the annoying, proprietary "perfect spoonful" measurem...

This and the Maeda-en Gyokuro Grower's Select go hand-in-hand. This is the sweet one of the two while the Select is more savory/umami. Both brew well very consistently (which is great, considering that gyokuro is an expensive tea and not something you'd want to waste).

Oct. 7th, 2018

Wei-Chuan has several different tiers of tea and this one is on the low end.

The tea bag smells very faintly of hay. Adding the water doesn't really bring out any extra aroma. The flavor's almost as weak as the tea smells. While hot, the flavor is practically nonexistent. When it cools down, a little flavor appears ...

This is my sushi tea. It complements the flavor of nori well, and it's quick to brew and clean up because it's a teabag. Despite the name, this mostly tastes like sencha. It has a creamy, seaweedy, umami flavor. There is a very slight bitterness, which sencha always seems to have and I actually like in the same way tha...

I don't have a lot of experience with brewing Japanese green tea, so I probably didn't brew this as well as it deserved. I brewed it in my gaiwan, figuring that shouldn't be too much different from brewing it in a shiboridashi. I ended up with a lot of small pieces of tea in my cup because I didn't have any kind of fil...

While periodically ordering our regularly consumed teas from Murchie's, I'll sometimes go after a small sample of a new tea, just to try something different, since they do have a huge selection. The name intrigued me (purple tea?), as did the origin, in some of the highest-elevation tea-growing areas of Kenya.

Aug. 21st, 2018

Tradition's "Smaragdine" (which just means "emerald-like") green tea is a longjing (dragon well) style tea from Taiwan. The sachets hold just under three grams of full-leaf tea that has some tips.

Like most green teas, it benefits from cooler water (165°) and shorter steeping times. The review is based on four minu...

The good news is, it ain't that bad. The bad news is, it ain't that good. Hence I'll take a page from the singular member of the Gerry Rafferty greatest-hits collection and rate this "right down the line"—the 50% line, that is.

The dry-bag, wet-bag and in-cup aromas barely exist. Though the base flavor of the ...

Surprisingly good for a tea bag. I feel like I've been saying that a lot lately (which reminds me that I have a couple reviews to add), but with all the terrible tea bags out there, it's still a surprise when a bagged tea taste much like the loose leaf version.

I'm not going to describe this in detail for two reaso...

I have no idea if I'm doing this right; I may update my review if there are any developments.

The loose tea is visually very interesting. Small dark green "sprinkles" that I believe I'm supposed to put directly into the cup and add hot water. They partly dissolve, making the liquid a lovely murky swamp green.

This probably is the best food-service green tea I've had so far, overall. Travelers should like this if the lodging or conference offers it, as it is comparable to or better than some common name-brand greens. You just need to be patient with it while brewing, and/or use one of the smaller sippy-cups these places te...
