This is one of my favorite teas, the smooth balance of this tea really brings out the complements of each part, the sum of its whole is by far better than its components individually. Basically it all works nicely to create a wonderful cup of tea.
22 Tasting Notes
This is not a bad everyday green tea, its inexpensive enough to brew it frequently.
The flavor notes are slightly smoky, with a very subtle hint of green tea sweetness. It is steepable up to 2-3 times.
I get mine from the Super H Mart in Dallas area.
I really like this peach tea ball. Its not expensive at about $10.00 a jar, and the flavor is smooth, there are more ornate flowing tea ball out there but its a nice starter if you are interested in learning about tea balls, or if you are just wanting something to drink.
This is a very flowery tea, the scent as well as the tea flavor when brewed. for the cost it packs a punch. I would recommend this for an everyday Jasmine, but you must really like the strong flavor.

I had this at a conference in Austin, as Hojicha from a bag goes, it wasn’t bad, I have had better but it made my day during a long meeting. Its a good mid-grade tea roasted green tea. I enjoy Hojicha for those days I want something between a green and and a black, its smooth enough to make a nice daily tea.
Not so special, but it does make a nice basc daily green tea. Its lower in cost than other gunpowder green teas with a bit of a smokey flavor, I have used it a few times as an iced tea, not bad. Not my favorite but its good for a basic green.
Great low cost Jasmine Tea, my favorite thing is this makes a great iced tea, very refreshing and good on a hot day
For the cost and quality, I would say pass on some of the more expensive brands, this tea gives you the quality without the high cost, you can save your money for another tea. Well worth it. You can find it in many Asian grocery stores, Super H Mart in Dallas (Carrolton) is my place of choice.
I haveto agree with the other reviews, it is a cheaper tea, but it has a good flavor. One of my favorite to make iced, I use, .5 oz (by weight) and 46 oz (by volume) hot water steep for about 5-6 minutes, dump some ice in it to cool and water it down a bit to taste, play with the brew times if you like, I personally like a strong green tea. It’s inexpensive enough to make daily. It also is a great everyday hot tea.
The citric tartness of Yuzu Rind, complement the drink, it’s not a tea for those who don’t like tart teas, but its a good tea if you are wanting an inbetween from an herbal fruity tea and a pure green tea.
this is a great blend, I really liked how the Darjeeling pairs with mint. Its quite a bit better than many other mint teas.

Kukicha is a great tasting tea that uses the parts of the tea that are sometimes considered “leftovers” the stems and twigs, but the flavor of this tea is really good, I love the sweetness of this tea blended with the flavors you would expect from a higher quality green tea.
This has such a dark liquor and well rounded flavor that I only brew it for about a minute at a time, its very good for multiple steeps, and it doesn’t have the mushrooms or musty flavor that can come along with lower quality Pu-erh.
Ok so I haven’t tasted it yet, really it’s just to pretty to break up and put in a cup, I have it on display in my office, it makes for a really cool conversation starter. People look at that and say “that’s really tea?” yep, it’s fun to have around. I plan to buy another and drink it soon, I will review that when I do.

This is a wonderful balance of flavor. It’s not overpowering and still holds to what a good black tea is known for. The stars are a nice visual addition that makes brewing this tea fun as well as flavorful. Ti
Lapsang is not for the faint of heart, it’s one of the boldest teas for aroma, and yet the flavor of the brew is very well balanced, with earthy smokyness, that is reminiscent of a good steak. This is one of my favorite teas for a cold day, in front of the fireplace. It also pairs well with chocolate bars, marshmallow, and graham crackers (s’mores)
