Solid Tea for Any Time of the Day

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

Best Served : Anytime.

Surprisingly fruity-sweet, somewhat floral aroma. A darker, reddish hay color. The taste is bright and floral (not sweet, though, despite the smell), with a hay/corn taste and borderline dry flavor due to the mild astringency, which is prominent in the mouth after swallowing. Overall, a balanced flavor profile, but had to dig hard to find any unique or prominent aspects, so a bit boring to my mind.

A clean green tea

Likes : Freshness.

Green tea is not always my favorite, but this one had a nice and crisp flavor that I grew to enjoy. I have nearly finished my tea box sample, and the flavor is quite fresh and clean. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

A great anytime tea. Not too strong, but not too weak. Tastes fresh and invigorating and my mouth felt clean after drinking it. I didn't add any sugar to it.

Good rainy day green

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime.

This is a fantastic green tea for rainy days with a book. It is clean and calming, with nothing too fancy about it. It doesnt have the flourishes of some of the more premium teas, but it is consistently delicious.

Nice but strong green

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : Strong.

Very strong green tea, even with added sweetening. The leaves are a beautiful mix of greens and when steeped according to recommendation, is a light golden color. Slightly too strong of a flavor for my personal taste but for one who likes a green with some body, this is it. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

Overall a very nice tea. It goes best when sweetened with honey. To make a second cup out of leaves is iffy. It is light and springy in flavor.

Long live the green!

My favorite in this box! The tea tasted fantastic! I also liked that when I brewed the leaves a second time, they still had a great flavor to them! Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

A wonderful,refreshing cup of green is what you get from this tea, but follow the steeping instructions carefully,it does tend to become a bit bitter if overstepped. Also tastes good with a dash of lemon. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

Really Unique Taste

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

I liked this tea and thought that it had a pretty unique taste. My only complaint is that it left a weird after taste. Luckily that didn't last to long though.

The taste of this green tea is very fresh, light. I add just sugar and little lemon juice and it was pefect to drink. I think you can drink it anytime of the day.

I love this unique tea. It's fresh and has a wonderful, grassy taste to it. I brewed it for only 2 minutes though, and I liked the more delicate taste that resulted.

It's ok

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

Dislikes : No Flavor.

Best Served : Evening.

I am not a huge green tea drinker, however, this was enjoyable but agree that is it fairly generic. Less dark than I was hoping after seeing leaves.

Good.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Anytime.

It's a nice, light, smooth green tea, but the actual taste is a letdown compared to the smell. It's a nice, fairly standard green tea. Not much to say beyond that.

Fresh and Light

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : No Flavor, Weak.

A very delicate tea, too much so for my tastes. The aroma in the dry tea leaves did not translate into the brewed tea. It is very fresh, and would go best with very sweet foods. Not a tea that I would drink on its own.

Its so refreshing. It has a hint of raisin and the aroma of it smells sooooo good !!

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Strong.

The dry leaf look was dark but the tea was rather lighter than that, a more brownish tint. It was absolutely amazing !!!

A really good green tea

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Anytime.

Most times, I have an issue with teas being too bitter. This one, however, was not at all. I definitely enjoyed this tea. The only complaint is that it was just a tiny bit too floral for my tastes. However it was all in all delicious and not bitter at all - so definitely worth a shot.

Makes a great morning tea

Best Served : Anytime.

Darjeeling Green teas have a unique flavor, owing both to the climate and lower altitude of the region, and also the large-leaf variety of tea plant used to produce these teas. Have found the best produce and quality at teabox collection..

Have always found darjeeling tea's to be very strong and bitter in taste, this one surprisingly is very different and- it has lovely aroma, medium taste and very smooth.
