This tea has a beautiful dark green color to it. It smells like seaweed and has a freshness to the aroma. When brewed, the color is a nice, light green hue. It looks very delicate in the cup, but the flavor is strong, even after the recommended two-minute steep time. The flavor is earthy and bitter, yet super smooth. I really like how it lingers after I have tasted it. Because of the lingering taste, this is a tea that I can take my time drinking, which is a good thing in my book. One to be savored.

This is a nice tea. The leaves almost look like pine needles. They’re straight and dark green. The liquor is a light gold color when brewed. It smells like seaweed chips, like sea air. It has a bit of a salty taste. It has qualities that are typical of a green tea astringent, grassy, plant-like, vegetal, herbaceous. It’s smooth and light and flavor. To me, it doesn’t taste bitter when brewed properly.

Personally, love this tea. In my opinion, it tastes the best flash brewed. It has a grassy taste that can be as strong as matcha depending on the steep time. Oddly enough I think it smells sort of like a summer ham.

Second tasting of the day, and im very impressed. I had heard both good and bad things about Tevanna but decided the only way to know for sure was to buy a few and test them out for myself. With that in mind, and a sale at the store in hand, I bought a nice little collection of sample sizes.

The first one I will be tasting is Jeju Island green tea, and using my glass teapot and a short steeping time of 30 seconds with 175 degree water. I got a very smooth, buttery, grassy tea with slight floral scents and no hint of bitterness. The taste and scent is somewhere halfway between a chinese green tea and a sencha, if you like sencha you will absolutely adore this. I know I do.

I highly recommend a short steep in a small amount of water, even if you have to resteep it, as it seems to eliminate the bitterness that is often reported with this tea. Now the glass teapot bleeds heat very quickly and is ideal for teas that get bitter easily. And in this case, I got absolutely none.

Second steeping had a slight bit of bitterness and an impression in both scent and taste of asparagus. Still very nice on the second steeping, that butter and sweetness is slightly diminished on the second steeping.

I HIGHLY recomend a bit more leaf and short steeps for this tea, in a very small pot or Gaiwan.

It is very rare to see green tea from Korea as we are not the tea capitol of the world. Mostly China and Japan are known for their production of high quality teas. However, the cool hillsides of Jeju Island have been found to be able to host and grow Camellia sinensis just as well. Korea is new to the tea game but we are not new to tea enjoying the aged Oolongs bricks from China and powdered matcha from Japan for ages. I am happy to see that Korea has expanded their market overseas.
This tea is a typical green and not as flavorful as I had hoped. Either steep longer or use more tea more stronger flavor. I enjoy it hot or cold, unsweetened.

I intended to buy a more floral green tea, but ended up with this one, which is definitely vegetal. It was a good lesson that scent isn’t reflective of taste. It is slightly buttery with clean, savory asparagus notes. Ok drinking but not great for the price.

I had this prepared for me at teavana. The aroma was interesting and the flavour was good. The only thing is that I think the rock sugar coloured the tea brown.

Mookit

I have Teavana’s Belgian rock sugar at home, and I haven’t noticed it change the colour of any of my teas. I think some green teas can brew up a slightly brown colour depending on how they are prepared or if it’s blended?

MrQuackers

Hojicha would certainly be a brown colour. Try putting brown sugar in your green tea and you will see what I mean. The only other option is that either the tea was bad, the rock sugar was bad ir there was something in that cup that wasn’t supposed to be there. Thank you for the reply.

MrQuackers

The colour they provide looks a little browner. Maybe they roast it. I don’t know.

Enjoyable tea of subtle, but gentle, qualities. Has a very soft and floral scent when steeped under two minutes. Crisp taste without a bite. A nice green to change up your everyday ritual. As well, works into that “sencha” spot, without competing, but instead supplementing.

I’m still a tea novice. This is my first pure tea from Teavana. I was so excited because it’s from Korea and I’ve never tried anything from Korea. It has very strong spinach notes. I don’t like that. But something in the aftertaste is quite nice. But the spinach note brings it way down for me.

This was recommended at the Teavana store when we asked for a gunpowder green, which my boyfriend likes. The SA advised this would be close in flavor.

I’m not a fan, personally. I haven’t met many plain green teas that I like. I tend to prefer jasmine green or genmaicha. Anyway, this was steeped for 3 minutes and turned a very lovely pale yellow-green.

The flavors are light… But the bitterness is heavy. This tea is pretty and smells nice, but I’m not enjoying the flavor. Maybe it’s too subtle for my unrefined taste buds.
