Sample. Was surprised by the very light color of this black tea. The smell is wonderful. Very lightly floral. Reminds me a little of Upton’s Moonlight Castleton Estate tea. I thought however that the scent didn’t transfer over to the taste. Didn’t taste like much of anything. Keeping in mind I definitely don’t have a very sophisticated palate.
Sample. Good! I always like to have a mint tea on hand. Not sure if I would choose this over my usual Upton’s Moroccan Mint though.
Sample. Confirmed my suspicion that I do not like rose flavored anything.
Sample. Can definitely taste/smell the ginger. Is okay. I actually like ginger a lot in baked goods, but I think I’d prefer to keep my ginger out of tea. Unless it’s Chai!
Sample. LOVED this tea. By far my favorite so far from the sampler pack I got a few weeks ago. Sweet (without any sweetener!), lightly tastes and smells of melon. Lovely. Will try a few more melon teas though before deciding if I want to reorder or not.
Sample. Short end of the stick? Interesting. My first Pu-erh. Before brewing the leaves definitely smelled very cinnamon-y and orange-y. Was totally taken aback by the color of the tea. So dark, and unlike any tea I’ve seen before. Had the first few sips plain and it was weird. Not terrible but I definitely didn’t like it. The smell had something off putting behind the spices that I can’t put my finger on. The taste was a little odd too. But added a touch of half&half and honey, and it became much better. The weird smell/taste diminished. The dominant spice seems to be cinnamon. I kind of like it. Totally unsure if I’d order more. But of the 10-15 Golden Moon samples I’ve had so far, this is in the top two.
Sample. First steep at boiling and 4 minutes was really bitter for me, even with my usual touch of half&half and honey. Dumped it out. But based on other reviews, I decided to steep it again, but this time for 3:30, and that was better. Had plain, then added some sugar, then some half&half. All were fine. To me, just tasted like a mild black tea.

Sample. Very mild. Smells pretty sweet and vanilla-y, but doesn’t taste like vanilla.
Sample. Had with a touch of half&half and honey. Didn’t wow me, but is fine as far as plain black teas go.
Sample. Disappointed. Okay, but didn’t detect any floral notes. But after reading other reviews can see that maybe it’s because of the boiling water. Darn. Wish I could try again!
Sample. I like white tea. I like licorice. But I do not like herbal teas, and this tastes like an herbal tea to me.
Sample. Ordered more. Of all the plain green teas in the sampler I got last week, this is my favorite. Not as grassy as some. I like the flavored Senchas much more, but wanted a plain one to have on hand. Definitely going to try drinking more green teas for all the health benefits. The pamphlet Den’s sent with the sampler definitely did it’s job!
Sample. Okay. Definitely very seaweedy/grassy. Don’t taste any bitterness.
Sample. I really liked some of the loose unflavored Senchas I’ve tried from Den’s, but this one not so much for some reason.
Sample. I actually liked it better than I thought I would, but probably not enough to order more.
Sample. Simmered 6 minutes in 8oz of whole milk. I love chai, but I did not like this at all. Thought it was weak, and didn’t enjoy the spice combo.
Sample. Had high hopes for this one, but really didn’t like it so much, darn it. Didn’t seem particularly jasmine-y or vanilla-y.
Sample. It was fine, but didn’t wow me.
liked this a lot but not as much as the pineapple sencha.
LOVE this tea! Great pineapple flavor that isn’t fake, and definitely has a creamy texture.
sample. another tea i didn’t love at first, but that grew on me the more i drank. possibly would order more of. would be interested in trying other coconut flavored teas.
