China Special Snow Dragon Green Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Green Tea – Region: Fuding, Fujian, China

76 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 14th, 2018

A pleasant green tea with a smooth, mild flavor that tasted a lot better when brewed more strongly. Easy to drink and I'd imagine this would appeal to a broad audience, with perhaps an exception for people who think green tea is bland or weak, because this was on the milder side.

Thank you to Simpson & Vail for the ...

Apr. 13th, 2018

I have purchased this a number of times, and the quality varies from year to year. This 2018 batch is not the best, but it is still a pleasant green tea, with a light vegetal flavor. The price has steadily increased over the years.

The flavor is lightly smoky and mossy, with some tannins. Good.

An excellent roasted twig tea, crisp flavor and complex aroma! Probably my favorite roasted twig tea (i.e. not roasted leaf tea) that I have ever had.

I tend to always like hojicha, but this was one of the more interesting batches I've tried in a while.

This one is a roasted kukicha (twig tea) and the roast look...

Feb. 13th, 2018

Firstly, I made this tea at 185(90 Celsius) degrees for about 3 minutes. The first steeping was very nutty and I loved the taste very much, it had a lettuce taste which I would normally dislike but in this tea it worked. later steepings were lighter in taste and less nutty. I got 3 steepings using 1.5 teaspoons of tea,...

Feb. 12th, 2018

Another summer Assam green that I was not a fan of and found difficult to appreciate. Thank you TEAORB for the sample!

Dry leaf has a strong aroma of wood resin, like pine, and lightly smoky, almost a little rubbery. The leaf smell is a bit harsh in the way raw Pu-erh that has not been aged can be, and I'm not sur...

Feb. 11th, 2018

Firstly, this tea is obviously VERY high quality and I could tell that right when I opened up the sample. The aroma of the dry leaf was fairly vegetal(spinach/kale) which is not what I am looking for in a tea, but the taste was much less so, especially when brewing for 2 mins instead of the 3-5 which is recommended.

Feb. 9th, 2018

The first time I ever tried gunpowder tea, I hated it. So, I came to this tea very skeptical. I also don't like smoky flavors, so that was another potential issue. But, even with all of that working against it, I ended up loving this tea. It has a spicy note like black pepper, there's a moderately rich, buttery quality...

Not my favorite dragonwell, but a decent example of the style. Attractive leaves are nice and flat. Nuttier, rather than toastier flavor and aroma, and fairly sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. That said, when it’s time to reorder, I’ll try one of Upton’s other teas of this style instead.

It strikes me as a little e...

Another lost review, apologies for the delay in posting. Thank you to Simpson & Vail for providing me with this one!

The dry leaf is wonderfully fragrant and also has a beautiful visual appearance, with long, narrow, fully intact leaves. The smell is suggestive of a number of high-grade Chinese teas, and made me e...

Not great - not undrinkable and still a better choice (for me, anyway) than the standar issues Lipton Black that our office provides.

No caffeine, no complexity, no color - I steeped it over 4 minutes, only a plae green and a few whiffs of grassy/vegetal notes.

I confess, I added sweetener - I just needed a hot ...

Jan. 11th, 2018

Overall this was not a great tea at all. I used no sugar and steeped for just above 2 minutes at 170 degrees. Although I fiddled the temperature around with no success.
The tea smells nice and is almost fruity.
Everything comes crashing down in the flavor though. It tastes like I took old vegetable broth and poured i...

Jan. 8th, 2018

Surprisingly, this is one of the better bagged green teas I've had. A store brand for Costco, it's not expensive; so I assigned a good "value" rating despite receiving it at no extra cost in a package of teas provided by lodging.

Bags are individually plastic-wrapped. Upon ripping one open, an unmistakable matcha...

Dec. 16th, 2017

The first thing that struck me is that it looks and smells exactly like gunpowder tea, even though it isn't called that anywhere. It's not a problem, I even have an idea why one might not want to market gunpowder tea as gunpowder tea (if that really is what this is). The origin and a name might sound more enticing that...

Dec. 7th, 2017

I couldn't resist the 500 g box, it only cost €4.50 so it's extremely cheap. With such bulk teas from Turkish shops I have sometimes gotten lucky, sometimes not.

This one is drinkable, I guess. It's just very finely broken so I have to be really careful not to oversteep it, it easily gets unpleasantly sour and bit...

Got this at the cafe at the St. Louis Museum of Art. Gunpowder tea in a bag seemed a little strange to me. I steeped for two minutes. It was pretty good. No qualities that jumped out at me, just a decent cup.

Another tea that I found too astringent to enjoy, no matter how I brewed it. I'm finding that about most of these summer-harvest Assam greens and even some of the spring ones. Thank you to TEAORB for the samples, this is an interesting experience even if I don't like all the teas.

Dry leaf smells heavy, pungent, v...

Nov. 6th, 2017

An aromatically-interesting tea that was too harsh for me to enjoy it. I wonder if, like a raw or sheng Pu-erh, this tea could be aged. I couldn't enjoy drinking it as-is.

This is the first summer-harvest Assam green tea, and I was curious to see if it tasted appreciably different from the others. I was disappoin...

Oct. 30th, 2017

When TEAORB sent me a massive array of Assam green teas to sample, I was a little worried that they would all taste too similar to each other, especially given how they all seem to look very similar to each other. Many of the Assam greens I've tried have been bold, alien, and the sort of tea I would need to be in the ...

Oct. 30th, 2017

I was attracted to this sample in the batch by TEAORB's description of a "forest floor" aroma and "toasted beans" palate. That appeals to me. I did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped, however.

The leaf, although a bit boring looking (wiry and solid brown in color), is pleasantly fragrant, a lot like a Chinese gre...

I have asked about Vietnamese teas so many times that the owner of Het Gouden Randje ordered this tea! She tells me she likes it too and that she'd already sold some to another customer, and thanked me for the tip. She also advised me to steep it multiple times, at least three.

It's cheap, too; just €5 per 100 g. ...

Oct. 26th, 2017

My least favorite of the Assam green teas so far; still pleasant to drink but only if brewed carefully; has some nice aromatic complexity, but I found the aroma was fleeting, most evident right after I poured the water and not persisting as I drank the whole cup. It was also very easy to oversteep.

The dry leaf has...
