I wasn’t expecting too terribly much from this tea since the international grocery store I go to can be a hit or miss when it comes to tea (and this was a lot of tea for the price)…but I was still kind of disappointed with this one. The overall flavor is really weak, and the cups I have had so far have either been tasteless or bitter. I really want to give this tea the benefit of the doubt so I should probably try it at home to better control the steeping conditions. I got this to be an “at work” tea since I didn’t have any Chinese greens at work, so I’m not too picky about it, but it could be a lot better. While steeping, it smelled a little like the Bi Lo Chun I have, but the taste just isn’t there…it’s kind of like the ghost of a good green tea.

I usually save the cheapies like this for iced tea season; when you’re just hot and need something cool and soothing, flavor takes a backseat to COLD!

pfff i hate when green teas taste very bitter pfff gets me on my nerves

Meeka

@gmathis – Will definitely try that – when I was younger I never liked iced tea much, but luckily my taste buds changed after I started drinking more tea…I keep forgetting that iced tea is an option :P

@Juliet Earth – I can’t agree more :)

think the flavor is just the hazard of buying from a grocery..I seem to find that even international groceries, sushi restaurants, and even high end Asian restaurants, typically offer low grade tea and are chasing poor expectations from a customer base. Groceries usually buy at low cost and high volume to get better costs for themselves, but these means a long time on shelves and in storage and tea specific vendors usually have to have more turnover and better quality….just as a general rule

@Kashyap – I think I have learned my lesson about that now…I got some awesome samples from Life in Teacup that put grocery store tea to shame.
