Very good basic Assam tea. Bold and strong with no bitterness. It is simple and taste great hot or iced. I would describe this as the basic black coffee of tea. It is a great everyday morning tea to get you going or an afternoon tea when you need a pick me up.

This tea smells and taste of jasmine. The jasmine flavor is not overpowering, but it is the only flavor I get. This tea is enjoyable but not exceptional.

I taste an excellent range of flavors from this tea. There is a nice nuttiness at first and then a grassy vegetal flavor with a sweetness that comes on at the end. One of my favorite green teas I have tried, and overall a rich and complex tea.

Has a nice green color and a mild light taste. The flavor is grassy with a hint of spinach. There is a sweet after taste that stays with you for a while. This tea tastes like a lighter version of the Dragon Well tea.

The color of this tea is quite clear with a hint of green. The flavor of the tea is buttery with slight fruitiness and a subtle nutty flavor on the end. All in all, a light crisp flavorful green tea.

I can best describe this tea as a Lapsang lite. It has a smokey taste that drowns out any flavor undertones. This tea blend did not work for me.

This tea has a dark reddish brown color and a malty bold taste. It makes an excellent morning tea that is not too over powering.

This tea has a rich and earthy taste. I really like the complexity of this tea. It has a little tinge of sweetness contrasted with a smokey flavor. It also has a nice after taste, the flavor seems to linger and slowly dissipate.

The fruit taste of plum, cherry, and apricot blend well with this tea. As a hot tea it is a little sweet for my taste. As an iced tea it is one of my favorites, it is sweet and fruity and does not need anything added to it to make it a sweet iced tea. I would give it a score of 70 for hot and 90 for iced.

Steeped this tea 4 or 5 times and each steeping delivered amazing taste. Tea has yellowish light green color and had a buttery flavor that tasted of flowered honey. Its flavor kept making me go back for more.
