Not bad. Kind of reminds me of Yunnan Gold Bud from Silk Road Teas. Smooth, interesting flavor.

Possibly the best tea i’ve ever had at this point in my life. It’s like a perfect blend of the best things about high quality Chinese green tea and high quality Japanese green tea. Just about perfect for my tastes. Kind of an oddly cloudy liquor, but the taste is fresh and wonderful.

Seriously disappointing. This is one of my favorite styles of tea, but this tea was extremely fussy. It was almost impossible to steep it without it becoming very bitter. Even when i steeped it properly it was still nothing to write home about. It was so disappointing that i’ve considered that they may have sent me a different tea in this packaging by mistake. I really expected much more.

This is a great green tea. Has some of the classic characteristics of dragonwell, but those are perfectly balanced with more traditional green tea flavors. Light and delicious. Good stuff.

Pretty nice. Didn’t blow my mind, but this is a solid Mao Feng.

Delicious dragonwell. I would order more but they’re out of this season’s supply. Cant wait to try next years.

Decent. I’m not a big drinker of oolongs, but this one falls somewhere in the middle of my oolong experiences. It is of the style that i prefer, but this one just didn’t wow me. Solid, just not very memorable.

2011 Harvest. This is a great tea with a strong chocolate aroma and flavor with a rich mouth-feel. Smooth. Stands in stark contrast to the somewhat spicy black teas that many people are accustomed to. Definitely worth trying.

Really great, light, fresh green tea. Reminds me of a nice Bi Lo Chun.

This review is for the 2011 Early Spring lot:
Really great stuff, and for a very reasonable price. Delicious, bright, refreshing green tea. Fantastic bargain.
