      Just sooooo good!

      This tea gets me out of bed in the mornings as it’s such a great start to the day. I drink it all day long though, not just in the morning. Tasty, satisfying, & so refreshing. I love it!

      Fragrant & deep

      It’s my first time purchasing jade sword. I gotta say that I love the aroma when I opened the bag. And the beautifully shaped, curled leaves. The color is light green with a deep, a lil bit bitter taste. Gotta give it more tasting to form my final thoughts on it.

      Beauty in a cup

      Jade Sword had such an intriguing name I had to try it one day. It's an enlivening tea, the aroma and taste soon wake me up with gentle reminder of spring on the palate.

      A clean and delicate green!

      I must confess that I'm not normally a green tea drinker, but this sounded delicious! It's a very delicate tea without much of the usual aftertaste which I really, really like. It also offers a clean taste and colour which also really appeals to me! Would recommend!

      A fine balance

      A clearly green infusion, grassy and lightly floral. Needs a good three-finger pinch well covering the base of the infuser with little show-through. Will stand 2-3 infusions. Very pleasant tea; a regular favourite alongside more flora Mao Feng.

      A clean cut from the Jade sword

      A very fresh, light/subtle green tea. It built in intensity and complexity with the second infusion - although that might just be my palette needing to wake up (I generally drink green tea at 5 in the morning!) Much less roasty than Long Jing.On my 2nd and 3rd infusions I got some cucumber and celery.Great stuff if you want a good,clean and light bodied green tea.

      2013s Jade Sword is simply stunning!

      This is by far the most delicious green tea of this style that I have tried. It has a bright, tropical sweetness quite unlike that of other normal green teas. Even after a couple infusions it holds up, revealing subtle layers of flavour and textural complexity. highly recommended!

      Not to be overlooked!

      Even though this is a budget price it has really nice complexity not usually seen in this bracket. It has the fresh green simple taste you'd imagine but also a subtle malty sweetness which elevates it wonderfully. I found its good for only two brews but the second is nearly as good as the first.I've been using a tea spoon per 150ml of water and 72c-75c water for 2 mins per brew.Amazing value and great a way to bulk out your order.

      A great tea

      This tea is good. The flavours are not exceptional as my 5 stars my imply, but for the price it certainly is exceptional. It is grassy and fresh, which makes it a pleasure to drink, with the benefit that you can drink as much as you like and it won't break the bank.If you want something less grassy and more complex go for a Sencha, but if you want really good green tea for everyday this is great.

      The Essence of Summer

      Drinking this made me think of summer hay meadows. The finest freshest hay with sunflowers and dandelions, and a hint of creaminess to round it off. As a green tea, it offers creamy grass and flowers, with no hint of bitterness at all, just the taste of sweet summer.

      A simple green tea to be enjoyed in any moment

      When you open the bag you can smell the deep fragrance of the dry leaves, which I associate to freshly crushed olive oil and there is no trace of the strange earthy smell often found in cheap green tea. The dark green leaves are long in shape and when you pour hot water over them a nutty aroma reminiscent of Dragon Well comes out... I like to imagine that this is how the air of misty tea gardens of China smell like. The crisp flavour cleans the mouth, giving the sensation of the tea leaves in all their freshness. This makes the Jade Sword the perfect tea to be sipped throughout the morning. It's a very easy to brew, you can even use a simple glass, but I wouldn't recommend multiple infusions as it will loose quickly its fresh taste.Jade Sword tea is also delicious when cold-infused. Its flavour is very balanced and it won't release much bitterness, just steep it in the fridge overnight and you'll get a wonderfully jade coloured drink.Definitely the perfect everyday tea with a great value for its price, superior to many other teas of the same price range such as the Gunpowder.
