Customer Reviews

An excellent tea at an excellent priceThere are two excellent tea companies on Amazon..Tao of Tea and Solstice Tea..I'm a bit of a tea snob and I appreciate being able to order an excellent gunpowder green tea at this price. It comes in a reusable tin that closes with two lids so your tea leaves don't get ruined by kitchen humidity. I use my old tea containers for mixing a combo of teas (green and a flavored for example that I use for iced tea.The price is excellent and delivery fast. The taste is so much better than bagged green tea.5low quality and over priced teaNormally Pinhead Gunpowder Green Teas are considered the best quality, since their smaller size pellets result from using smaller leaves that are also more tightly rolled up. In the case of this tea, the pellets are small because the pellets are not made from whole leaves, but instead consisted of broken bits of leaves and about 25% large stems broken into bits. I have attached a photo showing the wet leaves and stem after brewing one cup with 1 heaping teaspoon of tea. The stems are not the central vein of the leaves, but chopped up pieces of large twigs. Once the pellets are wet and unroll, they look like the hedge trimmings I have feed through my wood chipper to make compost. When good Gunpowder Green Teas are wetted the pellets will unfurl into mostly whole leaves, where broken bits are the exception. WIth a good Gunpowder Tea, you can put a teaspoon of pellets directly into a cup of hot water to steam without needing to strain the tea before drinking, since the leaves are whole. I've made 9 teaspoons of this tea so far, and I have not yet found a single whole leaf. The tea is mostly about 1/4 inch sections of leaves about 1/2 wide. The tea was made from broken bits of low quality large leaves. One of the reasons for rolling the leaves is so that they don't get broken up into bits when during storage and shipping.The rolling of the fresh leaves after steaming normally prevents oxidation of the leaves while drying. The amount of time the leaves are left to oxidize after steaming before they dry is what distinguishes Green, versus Oolong, versus Black Teas. This tea is much browner that most Green Teas, at least good ones. It looks more like a low quality Oolong bagged tea.The reason this tea is browner that most is likely because it was made from chopped bits of leaves damaged by mechanical harvesters. When not handpicked, many of the leaves get crushed and broken before steaming. The steaming kill bacteria and fungi on the leaves, so that they don't begin to decay. Oolong and Black teas are often said mistakenly to have be fermented, which is not the case. The are allowed to oxidize before drying. Reacting with the oxygen in the air is akin to iron rusting, and not the same as fermenting grapes, grains, cabbage, or milk to produce wine, whiskey, kraut, and yogurt. When the harvested tea leaves are left to sit for long periods after harvesting before being steamed, they begin to ferment, i.e. rot. When they are broken into bits before steaming, this happens even quicker. This poor handling of the harvested leaves causes the resulting tea to have a musty smell. When I smell this tea in the can, the pellets smell like grass clippings that have composted for a few days. Good Green Teas should smell more like freshly mown clippings or dried hay, without the smell of kimchi or kraut.I normally use store brand generic Green Tea bags for making Kombucha Tea. This tea tastes worse than the cheapest from the grocery. I'll be using the remainder of this tea to make Kombucha, which I drink for digestive health rather than its taste. I would say that at least its metal can might be re-used for some creative purpose, but even it is of low quality, with a paper label that was applied crooked and peeling, so it's destined for the recycle bin.I should have been warned off by the twee name, "The Tao of Tea". This tea has more in common with the "The Tao of Pooh" than any beverage served in a Taoist monastery. If offered a cup of this tea or plain hot tap water, I'd choose to drink the water straight.1UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GETTINGThere is a reason the tea is $1.71 an ounce. A high grade tea is made with leaves that are considered to be in top quality and condition. These leaves are broken and include stems. Since stems weigh more you are actually paying a much higher price for the leaves. This is also supposed to be Pearl tea. Pearl means delicately hand rolling leaves into a ball. There are very few Balls found rolled in my tin. Compared to other pearl tea I buy that consists of nearly 100% rolled balls of tea. The flavor is ok. But I would grade this a low grade not a higher grade. You get what you pay for and I would never buy it again.2My Dad's girlfriend and I love the Tao of TeaHello!I am a lover of green tea. I have quite a few teapots. My favorite teapot holds about 3 mugs of tea. After reading the Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, I decided to put a handful of loose tea in the pot the way that Wang Lung does in the book, then pour it out the bottom of the pot. This is seriously satisfying. the tea is strong and does not encourage headaches like coffee does. I also got Rooibos from this brand, and my dad's girlfriend Loves it.5SmokyI usually love green tea. I got a tea pot for Christmas and decided to give this a try. Not a fan of this kind of green tea. I hate giving it a low rating when I m sure there will be others who really enjoy this tea, but it tasted very smoky. From what I read that is what this tea is supposed to taste like, so be warned, it isn t regular green tea!3Good flavor, just way too many stems.Good flavor, just way too many stems. I have had other Tao of Tea products and find overall the flavor is very good. I am disappointed in this product. There are a high number of stems limiting the enjoyment of this product2Great tea and great price!I recently started drinking green tea so this was my first purchuse on amazon of the green tea, most due to the good reviews.The tea is great. Tastes great and also has a great aroma. So far I've brewed a lot of glasses at work and it seems that the contents of the container are not going down as much as they would when I brew earl gray which is awesome.Highly recommended tea!4Low qualityI do not like the taste of this tea. It seems low quality and bitter even when brewing with lower temperature purified water. I also dislike how much shake that resembles dirt at the bottom of my cup when drinking it. Upon a closer look, there seems be be lots of stems rather than leaves. I have included a picture of all the sticks I picked out in a matter of minutes.2It's not the bestSo I see a lot of reviews disappointed with this product. However, this was by far the best price on Amazon for tea. Keeping that in mind I'm happy with what I got.The packaging is 10/10! I was surprised how nice the packaging was. It comes in a tin with a frost finish. When you pull off the lid there's another sealing lid on the inside which surprised me for the price. It has a knob you pull up on to break the air tight seal. I ordered a couple of these and it differs how tight the seal is, but all seemed to be air tight. I'll definitely be saving these tins when the tea is gone.The flavor of tea is not the best, I just have to say that. I like strong tea so I tend to brew longer than usual. It took a long time to brew to my (usual) liking. My method is putting the tea in empty tea bags and brew by the cup. With green tea you have to be careful how long you let it steep, because it can turn pretty bitter. But I found no matter how short the steep, it was bitter. I don't mind that, I like it but this was a lot of bitter. Most people won't like it.It's not undrinkable. It just depends on your taste. It's just not the best green tea I've ever had. But I will continue to drink this.It has stems I just pluck them out when I find them. There's only a few.I personally like this tea because of the price and packaging. It's not in a bulk size but not little. I think the price is fair for what you get. I might try to buy from a different seller next time if the price is good. If not I'll stick with this.4QualiTEAHeaven in a cup. Great on its own or with some jasmine flowers, ginger, citrus, anything really. Great robust flavor. Very happy. And it arrived very fast!5
