66 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 24th, 2017

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'm t...

Jun. 13th, 2017

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...

Jun. 9th, 2017

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 "smoldering" flavour, but just a little l...

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 ...

I have read about Anji Baicha for years now, and this is the first time I've ever tried it. I've been very curious about it, especially since I've read that it's among the teas highest in L-theanine, but is prepared rather differently from Gyokuro, the tea I've tried that is also highest in theanine. It didn't quite ...

This was a simple, coolish, fresh green tea with a hint of smoke in the aroma. Gunpowder isn't my favorite style of green tea, but I do enjoy it from time to time.

The dry leaf of this smells mild but pleasant and fresh, dusty with a hint of smoke, some cool herbal notes a little like celery. After steeping I see ...

The dry leaves released a great roasty aroma when I opened the bag. I couldn't wait but to steep a cup of this great looking green tea in my glass gaiwan.

I cooked water and let it cool down for 2 minute. I can't really say what temperature it is, I tend to steep tea more based on my 'feeling'. And I like it that wa...

The appearance of this green tea is dark green. The dry leaves smell amazing. It’s like seaweed.

After brewing I can see that it consists mainly out of small young leaves as well as some one bud one leaf pickings.

This is a pretty strong tea. The flavour reminds me of a biluochun. It’s vegetal, seaweed-like, ...

May. 16th, 2017

I’ve prepared this longjing in a glass and steeped it with water around 80C. It’s more a grandpa style of brewing, but I like it this way with Longjing.

The first brew is delicious. It has the usual nutty and toasty characteristics, but not too strong. The flavour isn’t as vegetal as most green teas, which I l...

Thank you to Mighty Leaf for this sample! Overall I haven't been as impressed with the green teas from Mighty Leaf as the black ones, but I like this one a bit more. This was a very atypical example of a kukicha / twig tea, much more full-flavored than I expected.

I was intrigued by how the leaf smells...it smells...

Thank you mighty leaf for this sample! This tea had a very pleasant flavor but was nearly aromaless, although what aroma it did have was nice.

Dry leaf initially doesn't smell great, but when I breathe in more deeply, there's a very pleasant smell that suggests sweetness. The leaf looks fairly large and also rathe...

Green Tea from Benner Tea Co

May. 2nd, 2017

Effective price at Aldi's just increased 25% via shrinking the packaging. A box of 20 Benner green tea bags now contains only 30 grams of tea instead of the 40 grams it used to contain.

Walmart sells Uncle Lee's green tea bags at half that cost and is a much better deal for a comparable product.

I tend to like Mao Jian teas a lot, and I still liked this one, but it was my least favorite example of it that I've tried. It was unexpectedly smooth but lacked edge or bite, and I think this bite is one of the things that I most appreciate about this type of tea.

Dry leaf is wiry and curved, very dark green. Qui...

This decaf certainly smells delicious. The dry teabag smells just like a sencha should. It's fresh, grassy, and a little seaweed. The tea is fine fannings, almost dust.

The tea steeps a bright green. The aroma, though a bit muted, is vegetal, like raw green beans.

The first taste is a strong, but pleasant bittern...

The freshly-opened teabag has a strong smell when dry, which is unusual for a decaf. Even though it isn't particularly complex, the aroma is fresh and grassy.

The tea brews into a dark amber-green and smells very vegetal, like freshly harvested asparagus. Both color and aroma remind me of the "special gunpowder" gre...

This a solid quality green tea that resteeps well several times. The leaves start off coiled and they expand each time, so not a lot of tea is needed for a tasty cup. Be sure not to over brew it for the best flavor.

Enjoyable but not amazing, not really standing out much among this style of tea. Smoother and less acidic than the norm for chun mee, but also perhaps a bit more boring too.

The dry leaf has a dusty vegetal aroma, slightly smoky, with a few sweet notes, kind of what I'd expect from this type of tea.

Brewed, this...

This is one of the weakest decaf greens that I've tried. It brews up with a darker color than even many caffeinated teas, but the flavor and aroma remind me of dry hay. It tastes and smells slightly vegetal, but is nondescript and uninteresting.

I'm actually surprised that this tea is so bad. Twinings isn't exactly ...

The tea in the sachets is a mixture of broken and whole leaves, so the first appearance is of tea that would be mediocre if sold loose. The dry tea is quite fragrant, though, smelling fresh and grassy.

I typically steep green tea at 170° for four minutes. With decent quality tea, this generally gives a comfortable ...

Apr. 3rd, 2017

It's apparently easier to decaffeinate green tea and still have some flavor than it is black tea. One thing I've learned about decaf greens, though, is to use hotter water than one would for the caffeinated varieties. Conventional wisdom for green tea is to use cooler water and shorter steeping times to keep from cooki...
