Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
" Prominent are vegetal, sweet flavors with a clean aftertaste. There's a vague grassiness to the tea along with buttery smoothness."

" It would be a mistake to describe the tea as spicy, but there is a bit of cinnamon to the taste as well...quite delicious, very unique and well worth sampling soon. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The flavor is rather complex, and while it can lend itself to midnless or less contemplative sipping, if you really focus on this tea, you'll draw out smoky, malty, fruity, cocoa, and spicy notes."

Teaviews Member: Dan Dan's review:
"Crimson Grove is an intriguing tea in that it is a black tea, but it is "made with lightly fermented leaves from the same tea plan varietals used to make sencha." I can't say I've had a tea before that claims to be sourced this way. The result is sweet, nutty and creamy in aroma and flavor. "

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The tea itself is fresh, sweet and surprisingly simple. It's thinner tasting and vegetal but so sweetly so that it is just exceedingly drinkable."

Teaviews Member: Samantha Samantha's review:
"At 1 minute the tea began to show it's true artist with a palate of fresh chopped spinach and green beans. Though these flavors typically come along with most greens, this tea has hints of sweet melon and citrus. To the tongue it is so smooth and creamy, it was delicious. "

"This is a complex cup, it was so clean and creamy you'd think there was milk right in it! Buttery smooth green veggies with a hint of citrus, Top Leaf is one to be commended!"

Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"Rich and hearty in its mineral laden, vegetal character and toothsome feel, the brew maintains a fresh lightness with a sweet finish. "

Teaviews Member: Sophie Sophie's review:
"Drinking this is a similar experience to eating 80% cocoa chocolate: it's intense and bitter-sweet. This is an offering that fans of Japanese teas will enjoy. Others less familiar with their vegetal, astringent flavour might be put off by such a pungent cup."

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The tea is smooth and creamy and textural enough to savor on a number of levels and to me the bittersweet component makes this tea stand out enormously."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The flavor of this tea is pretty intense, with spinach-grassy notes dominating. However, a natural, yet not overwhelming, sweetness tea that keeps the vegetal flavors in check."

Mellow Monk Shaded Leaf Green Tea

8.2/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Geoff Geoff's review:
"It’s still decent enough if you treat it to a trilogy of tastings. "

Teaviews Member: Raven Raven's review:
"The creamy mineral quality nods of fukamushi sencha while the vegetal aromas and flavours are darker in nature than sencha, reminding me of collards and kale without the chlorophyll bit of greenness of parsley or as much butteriness as fresh cooked spinach. "

Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"Flavors are not static and there's quite a bit of dynamism to the taste that is wholly temperature dependent and makes the sipping of this tea quite engaging."

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"while the flavor is not overly strong but is instead smooth and subtle, it is still an undeniably vegetal flavor that can only come from a green tea, particularly a Japanese green tea. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"a potent spinach flavor; the Mellow Monk describes it as "delicately herbaceous", and while I concur with the herbaceous part, I think the flavor is a bit stronger than what constitutes delicate. "

Mellow Monk Yuzu Dream

8.2/10  —  4 reviews
Teaviews Member: Katie Katie's review:
"Mildly citrus balanced with the strongly floral backing of the yuzu."
Read review »
      7.3/10
Teaviews Member: Jamie Jamie's review:
"The yuzu seems an excellent pairing to this brothy and buttery green tea. Its flavor is subtle but with complexity and the bittersweet aspects of it seem a near perfect match to the green tea itself. "

      9/10
Teaviews Member: Samantha Samantha's review:
"This green tea has a little spunk to it, it starts out nice and smooth and then you get a taste of citrus-y orange zest. Yuzu is a nice addition, it doesn't take away from the fact that this is a green tea but it adds a nice citrus kick to the cup. "

Teaviews Member: Vanessa Vanessa's review:
"The yuzu mingles nicely with the natural sweetness of the green tea leaves and the overall effect is an easy-sipping and moderately sweet cup"

Teaviews Member: Samantha Samantha's review:
"Mellow Monk's Frosty Garden is a japanese sencha known as shiraore which contains leaf stems. Most tea does not contain stems. When more constituents of the tea plant Camellia Sinensis are included, more health benefits are apt to arise. "

"An undeniably sencha flavor that is strong and assertively green, being best likened to spinach"
