I messed this one up - forgot how chintzy the Golden Moon sample packets were and did one cup’s worth of dry leaf in a two-cup pot before I caught my goof. Therefore, what I got was ultra-light with a little hint of grassy sweetness instead of the mellow, pineappley vibe the description teases me with. Pooh.

Golden Moon, be proud of your tea, yes, but put enough in your samples I can actually decide whether I like them or not! (Thank you for the opportunity to comment.)

Mmmm quite yummy. It has a bit of that nutty taste to it (how I call it lol). Really nice aftertaste too. Delicate and tasty. Milder than most green teas.

So it’s a like from me…

Yikes. This got bitter fast. Oddly it also has a sugary-sweet aftertaste. There are some rich cooked-vegetable notes, like artichokes or asparagus, and then a straight sugar flavor. It’s not a horrible cup but I just don’t know what to make of it. I’m guessing this is a Chinese green, and those tend to be very hit-or-miss for me. This one’s a miss, but it’s also a sipdown.

ETA: Oddly this is growing on me as it cools—possibly because it’s less bitter and more sugary. Still wouldn’t buy it but it’s not totally horrible.

I’m approaching this one just a bit skeptically, as it isn’t labelled as anything other than a generic “green tea”. With so many varieties out there, that seems to be selling it a little bit short. The aroma of the dry leaf is fine, fresh but not very nuanced.

I set it up for two minutes at 190, and got a nice green color out of the liquor, just a bit cloudy. The aroma was understated, as was the flavor. There are hints at vegetal, a little astringency, perhaps a couple other notes but they’re so far in the background that it hardly seems like I should count them. Nothing offensive about it, but I’m not finding a compelling reason to keep drinking this one when there are so many other excellent green teas out there.

I’m surprised this tea has such a low rating. I like this tea enough that I’ve purchased it twice since initially sampling it over a year ago. One thing to bear in mind with this tea is that it’s not delicate or fussy about steep times and temperatures, like a gyokuro, sencha, or so on. It’s an entirely different style of green tea. The leaves themselves are larger and more robust looking. The tea has a mellow flavor, but is not too delicate. It does not have richness or depth like a gyokuro. I love gyokuros; in fact they are my favorite green tea, but sometimes I want something a little less fussy, something requiring a bit less attention. Sometimes I just want a trustworthy, serviceable green tea, one that I can brew and drink while turning my mind to other matters. This one delivers. It is smooth and pleasant. I brew this at a higher temp than I do other green teas to help bring out the flavor. It blends well with other teas, particularly oolongs.

Just kind of mediocre, especially compared to the other teas I’ve tried from Golden Moon. I wouldn’t mind being served this, but I don’t think I’d go out of my way to get it.

Ricky

Agreed, I can drink it, but it isn’t worth buying.

It looked really pretty in my little kyusu… but the flavor? where is it? or are my tastebuds gone? It left a buttery oily feeling in my mouth. It is very very light. I didn’t notice any candied pineapple in the notes. Pretty meh.

A nice refreshing green. It made a nice iced tea. It has a light sweetness to it. I did get a little pineapple in it. Wish it was a little stronger.

Alright, I historically do not like green tea. Just wanted to warn you.

Now, I’m hopeful with the scent. There is a oolong element to this that gives me hope.
Taste though is still very vegal. I have to say, it’s tame enough that I don’t hate it. I’ll drink the rest of what I brewed. It hasn’t won me over to green tea though.

Going for another sampler after a long day of first classes for the term. Having an evening class is awful, only now did I get a chance to brew myself some tea! I almost wish I had some sort of tumbler so I could steep tea and bring it to my two hour class…

Anyway, the smell of the tea before steeping was quite typical for a green, but I could definitely smell the pineapple! Even after steeping the pineapple smell lingers, I’m just so excited for it to get a tiny bit colder so I can drink it and see if the pineapple taste is noticeable.

First sip. Ah nice, typical green taste. Slightly bitter, which means I probably put in water that was a tad too hot. I love the subtle sweetness this tea has, and it’s not an overpowering green tea taste.

Wow, already halfway done with the cup. I really like the taste of this. The taste of pineapple doesn’t really quite stand out, but it definitely adds sweetness to the tea, making this a pleasant green tea. Not a strong flavor at all though, which makes me unsure if it’s really worth purchasing in the future.
