Green Hill Classic Spring Green Tea

description

Indulge in the goodness of green tea with this special offering from Nepal. Distinct for its semi-rolled dry leaves, this green tea offers a particularly smooth palate experience.
Look for earthy, wet wood notes in the aroma and subtle hints of blanched greens and wet earth in the palate notes of the liquor. Light bodied, smooth and truly refreshing; this is a great pick for a light-hearted sip in the day.

One of the best green Tea I've ever had. Nothing bad to be mentioned. Got it as a sample pack, I am not a great fan of green Tea. Stopped with the sample.

Not my favorite tea

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Morning.

I am normally a fan of green tea but this tea tastes very grassy and earthy, which is a great unique flavor if that's what you enjoy but not for everyone. The flavor grew on me after a few days though.

Great Anytime Tea

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

Best Served : Anytime.

Really refreshing tea at any time of the day. I often like my tea strong and I tend to shy away from steeping it for the reccommended time. This tea has made me rethink that process becasue it seemed like a new tea everytime. Each cup I brew I find something else I enjoy about it.

Perfect blend of fresh, aromatic, and just as bold as I like it!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

To start things off, I like to over-steep my teas. Completely disregarding the instructions, I just need my tea to be as strong as possible. With this tea, however, I found it was great at all stages. When it gets as strong as I like it, the freshness is still present (something that rarely happens with my teas), but when I steep it properly the flavour really stands out. I really cannot suggest it enough, it's been one of the best teas I've had since the first time I drank tea at all some 10 or so years ago. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

Smokey green tea

Best Served : Anytime.

This tea became one of my favourite among all green teas. It is very well balanced, not bitter or too grassy. It is smooth, rounded and gentle. And most off all, it has a delicious smokey notes , wich remind me about Lapsang souchong, but not so strong and obtrusive. So you can drink it with everything or on its own and always it will be great.

A refreshing green tea

Likes : Smooth Body, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon.

As my first loose leaf green I was surprised at how much difference there was in taste. I was a little off put by the acrid smell off the dry leaf, but once infused, I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the taste and mouth feel was.

The steeped color was a little lighter than the description on the site but I can't express how much I love this tea. The rich, earthy scent is amazing and The flavor makes me think of a cozy, rainy afternoon. I will be buying more of this. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

I now know exactly what wet earthy wood taste like & I am unsure if I like it or not. I plan to keep drinking it, but it is a just-kind-of-there tea. Not bad, but I'm just not wow'd.

One of the best green teas I have ever tasted!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

This is a beautiful tea. The dry leaves have a twisted, rolled quality and are a variegated green color. When brewed it creates a medium golden liquor and has a wonderful toasty, earthy fragrance. It has a hint of smoky flavor but it wonderfully smooth and balanced with no bitterness. Very enjoyable!

Exceptional hearty green tea!

Best Served : Morning.

This tea is extremely delicious. It has a very deep vegetable-like taste and reminds of a some gunpowder green teas that I have tried in the past. I especially like how well it held up under multiple steepings. This is a very high quality tea with a amazing flavor profile and an excellent mouth feel. The color of the tea is also bright yellow after being brewed which is very beautiful. I am a huge fan of this tea and all of my friends who have tried it feel the same way. It is also relatively inexpensive which is a big plus.

Smokey and Earthy

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

This tea caught me off guard as it has both a smoky flavour and aroma. I personally have never tasted tea with that type of profile. It is not too strong a note, but if one is not a fan of smokey-ness, this tea may seem so.

Dissapointed

I can't truly pick what I "didn't like" about this tea. I just didn't enjoy it. I usually like green tea but it seems like no matter what I add to this one the flavor still isn't what I'm looking for. If there are other green teas I'd love to try them but this one wasn't for me.

Makes a great Afternoon Tea

This tea has a lovely flavour, because the leaves are rolled the flavour and aroma are very much intact, makes it very effective during dull and lethargic times for instant energy

Excellent green

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

One of the best greens I have ever drank. Was skeptical at first since I only drank china spring greens, but this blew my mind. The look and smell is like a smoky Biluochun but better, with hints of salami and salted cured bacon. I have certainly changed my mind on Indian greens. Leaf:Appearance Dry 5/5 Wet 5/5 Aroma Dry 5/5 Wet 5/5 savory smoky with hints of cured meat and Syrah wine. Liquor: Appearance 3/5 cloudy light greenish yellow Aroma 5/5 intense savory smoky "cured meat" Taste 5/5 smoky like fine Islay scotch with smoked meat. I love it!
