Grand Tea Pearl Jasmine

10/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Numi Numi's review:
"This tea also seems softer in flavor than less refined teas, leading to less dryness (yeah!) yet retains enough body to avoid the frustration of drinking beautifully scented water. The overall effect is a jasmine that is demure and ravishingly beautiful at once."

Grand Tea Monkey-Picked Anxi Oolong

8.8/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"While the aroma is heavy on the floral side of things, the flavor of this tea is actually rich with toast, nut and grain notes. Each sip does end with a delicate yet sweet floral flavor, though."

Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"With the pleasing substance, the layered, scotch like flavour of the tea offers a surprisingly, mellow sip for a young pu-erh without any bitterness. "

Grand Tea Shifeng Longjing

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This tea has a sweet and slightly grassy flavor, with just a hint of soy-like nuttiness and it lacks the vegetal and bitter properties that can sometimes turn people off from green tea. This is what Dragonwell should look and taste like."

Grand Tea Yin Luo Jasmine Green

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The tea is very tasty and the robust jasmine is really well balanced... the overall flavor is fairly mild, but the jasmine scenting is one of the nicest that I've tried,"

Grand Tea An Ji Bai Cha

8.5/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"An Ji Bai Cha is a real treat for any fan of delicate white teas (despite the fact this is a green). Subtly sweet, beautifully flavorful, and highly engaging. For such a supposedly-rare tea, a price tag under $8 per ounce is a fantastic bargain. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This tea is primarily floral in nature, but with slight buttery undertones. The tea has a pleasant sweetness, but as with the general profile of this tea, the sweetness is delicate and mild. "

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"This is almost like a blend of three high quality teas: up front is the sweet, honeyed flavor of a top-notch oolong (Da Hong Pao or Dan Cong); then in the middle the palette reacts with memories of an excellent, malty Assam; and yet still a third component of woody character, particularly on the finish, brings closure to the sip."

Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
" As for taste, I felt it had a slightly astringent forefront, a mildly vegetal and buttery middle, and an oddly fruity finish. Fair to good start."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"This is a smooth-drinking, light-bodied green tea whose grassy and bitter notes are mellowed out by sweet, nutty tones. I don't think this tea will have universal appeal, but I can see this one having its fair shair of devoted followers."

"It wasn't a vegetal aroma in the spinach sense, but more along the lines of a summertime leaf prior to its autumnal fall. Such a scent is usually pungent but balanced; as was the case here."

Grand Tea MeTaBo

7/10  —  1 review
Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The woodsy and rich rosemary clashed with the other ingredients and was just too pungent of an ingredient to blend harmoniously. This is one of those teas that each person really should try on his/her own, as the flavor profile is quite unique and it's hard to say who would or would not like this tea."
