From Adagio Teas

Green tea from the Fujian province of China. Green Pekoe (sometimes referred to as Orange Pekoe) is famed as an everyday tea, and is among the most popular teas consumed in China. Its thin, wavy leaves appear almost black when dry. Once infused, however, our ‘Green Pekoe Blues’ reveals its true color. And produces a light cup with a smooth, mellow taste and a gentle, soothing aroma.

this has a wet grass smell. I think this is okay. I am not a huge green tea fan. I do not really care for the grassy taste But this Green Pekoe does not have a strong grass taste. it does not really have mush of a flavor. I think this is good for someone who does not really like green tea or need a stepping stone to green tea.

I can’t say I dislike this tea. I accidentally over steeped the tea, but from the other reviews it seems like the suggestion. I thought it to be an alright tea although very subtle.

An okay, but not spectacular green. The grassy favor is very delicate but tasty. I just wish it was about 50% stronger. I tried steeping it up to about 7 mins and really didn’t extract too much more flavor, only bitterness. At the recommended 180 degrees for 3-4 mins it is a mild green that is very drinkable, but forgettable.

Oh, very nice! It smelled and looked lovely in the tin, but it had a very weak color and hardly any scent at all in the mug — I almost let it steep longer, and then I thought, No, I always do this to green teas; I should just drink it. And I’m glad I did, because all of that loveliness came right back out in the taste.

A nice, simple green tea. Did two infusions and it held up well. Am about to see if I can squeeze a 3rd infusion.
