Its a pretty mediocre green tea. I’m ranking this slightly higher than I did with the Dragonwell I tried from Tea Source mostly because Dragonwell is suppose to denote a quality, and I felt that it “failed” worse.

And its not to say that this tea failed, it just tastes slightly stale to me. Like a green-tea you’d get from your local cafe where everyone only orders coffee (and the barista has forgotten there was any tea at all).

It reminds me a lot of gunpowder green tea, which probably isn’t a good thing. Faint chestnut aroma that really just reminds me of over-cooked bok choy or some other stemy leaf green.

blah blah blah, come on people, not every tea can be ranked 80+. Rant, rave; but honestly not every tea you drink can be ranked the same, otherwise you defeat the point of giving the grade!

So as other people have broken down their ranking systems, I am doing the same.

I’ve also decided to update my reviewing system. I’m going to be ranking across a 3 system scale on: taste, accurate representation, and price.

Taste = 0-100 (see old ranking)
Accurate Representation = 75 being average (how true it is to its style of production. So a Darjeeling that tastes like an Assam would rank lower)
Price = Percent difference of what I think the tea is worth


Old Ranking
90-100 = I’m quite happy to buy again
70-89 = Acceptable representation
50-69 = Wouldn’t order again
20-49 = Meh
10-19 = Average tea bag ranking
0-9 = Needed to brush my teeth immediately
