Nov. 14th, 2017

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...

51 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
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 ...

71 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Oct. 26th, 2017

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. ...

68 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
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...

Oct. 20th, 2017

This tea stood out among the first several Assam green teas I sampled from TEAORB. I haven't tried the whole batch yet, not even half of it, but this is definitely my favorite so far.

The dry leaf is by far the most fragrant of the Assam greens I've tried. The smell is similar to the other teas: smoky, vegetal, an...

One of my favourite green teas. Doesn't go bitter (leave for less than two minutes) and it tastes so smooth and nice. It is my go to tea in Starbucks these days.

Oct. 14th, 2017

This tea tasted a lot like an un-aged sheng pu-erh, but a softer one suitable for immediate consumption. This was my second tea sampled in my adventure into Assam green teas, thanks to the abundant small samples TEAORB sent me.

Dark, crinkly leaf smells heavy, but there's a faint light note suggesting sweetness, an...

Oct. 13th, 2017

A potent large-leafed green tea with a strong flavor, thick body, and a bold, slightly alien aroma.

This was the first Assam green tea I have ever tried. Thank you TEAORB for generously shipping me a huge assortment of Assam green teas. This one reminds me of Yunnan green teas more than anything else, a little lik...

Oct. 11th, 2017

The standard tea bags are packaged in plastic. When opened, the tea is quite pungent, smelling fresh, sweet and of seaweed.

I used 175° water for three minutes. This tea is really aromatic while brewing. The tea smells like seaweed, but not fishy.

The flavor is definitely of high-quality Japanese green tea, but ...

Very fresh vegetables taste with light seeds at the end. This Shincha has deep green color of rolled leaves and clean and very light green color of infusion slightly sweet, with a refreshing aroma and seeds, taste at the end. this means a high concentration of L-Theanine.

I should preface this by saying before discovering twinnings, the only teas I were used to were the walmart bargain brands. So, my expectations were exceptionally low. I had just seen that it was the most expensive Green Tea at walmart, and being one that enjoys Green Tea for it's health benefits, I figured i'd try the...

Several bags of this tea have been sitting around my pantry for up to a year after bringing them home from a professional conference, occasionally consumed either alone or teamed with a bag of peppermint. Finally I'm thinking to rate it!

Where I grew up, a troublesome percentage of fellow youth sniffed glue, paint ...

Oct. 2nd, 2017

I got this box free with an order of loose Ten Ren tea. The normal price is $4 for a box of 20 tea bags.

The individual bags are sealed in plastic for freshness and the aroma is quite strong when opened. It doesn't smell like dragon well to me, though, but like cheap gunpowder or pearl green. The dry tea is chopped ...

Sep. 28th, 2017

The "Temple of Heaven" needs a smoke alarm; it may be burning down.

This was my next new-tea attempt from a Numi variety pack, and mostly it's a good, clean, smooth, hearty cup. The tightly rolled nodules unfurl into the biggest leaves I've ever seen inside a tea bag, larger than those of many loose-leaf teas I've ...

Sep. 16th, 2017

This is how I remember sencha! Very strong green vegetal aroma and a seaweed-y flavour. It has a thick mouthfeel and the colour is light greenish yellow. The way I made it now, it didn't taste bitter like other senchas have before, which is a shame because I quite liked that bitterness and I feel that would really comp...

The leaves look interesting: the leaves are shredded into flat pieces of two or three square millimeters and relatively light green. (Isn't sencha usually needle-shaped?)

I don't have much experience with senchas, but this doesn't quite seem like the two better ones. I remember a strong bright, "green" vegetal aroma...

Even before I brewed this, the colour of the leaves reminded me of Vietnamese green teas: olive green with some grey and white leaves. The aroma and the colour of the liqueur also reminded me of Vietnamese green teas.
The aroma and flavour made me think of Simon Lévelt's Yen Bai Groen and a brandless tea called Vietn...

After reading the reviews here and needing more office tea, I went to a local Ten Ren store looking for Dragon Well in the tea bag. They had it in loose form only at $150 a pound. They directed me to the Asian market next door where they did have the Green Tea.

Just finished a cup and it's like what you all wrote. A...

I drank a cup of this tea at Het Gouden Randje.
It has a vegetal aroma and a grassy flavour. The colour is a lovely yellow-green. It has a pleasant hint of bitterness (which reminds me of UNAMI's Kabuse Cha, which is my only previous run-in with sencha). There's no sweetness in the flavour, and even though I usually l...

Obtainable mainly in assorted supermarkets across the West, this store-brand green tea tasted about average for a bagged green tea—placing it somewhat above-average for generic/store-brand teas overall. The dry leaves in the bag were quite finely chopped, but still identifiable as leaves! Some stem pieces appeared ...

I didn't try a sample before ordering this one in a 25g bag (my mistake). I was really surprised with how little flavor it had. As with the Spring Laoshan Green and Spring Reserve Laoshan Green, there's a savory profile, though this is more delicate and sweet than the others. But, the notes didn't last for more than a ...

I didn't try a sample pack of this one before ordering the larger 25g bags, because it was less expensive, so it wasn't a big deal to just order the bigger bags. Well, after trying it, I could see why it was less expensive. I got almost no brews out of this. It's really low-quality tea. Even taking into account the fac...
