For one, it is impossible to tell the age of the teas in the tins. For Pu-erh, that's not such a big deal, but for green teas and the Jasmine, you want normally want to get a batch that is a fresh as possible. PierMall is a big reseller of products from around the world, and there is no telling how long what you get had been sitting in some huge warehouse, slowly losing flavor. Another consideration is that you get a random sampling of Chinese teas, no the specific types that is implied by their Amazon listing. If you visit their website, you will see that they draw from this selection:
* China Black Tea
* Tiekuanyin (Iron Goddess of Mercy)
* Lung Ching DragonWell Green Tea
* Yunnan Pu-erh
* Jasmine Tea
* White Tea
* PuErh Tea with Chrysanthmum
* Lychee Black Tea
* Rose Black Tea
* Rose Green Tea
* Osthsmum Green Tea
I don't know about you, but I'd like a little more certainty when buying a product. If you are new to tea and trying different varieties out, or are getting this as a gift, then it isn't such a big deal. Of what I received, the Oolong was the best. The Pu-erh was okay, though nothing special, and the Jasmine has a slight aftertaste, leading me to believe it was artificially flavored. Good Jasmine tea should be flavored by the scent of the flower, nothing else. The green and blacks were just okay.
You could do worse if you were to buy teabags, but not much. I would recommend buying good loose leaf tea from dedicated tea vendors who are more upfront about what exactly they are selling you.Read more ›
On the other hand, I just found a tea from TheTeaSpot, where the tea is incredibly fresh, aromatic, and in a double sealed tin can. The packaging is so unique that it keeps the tea guaranteed fresh. This tea by comparison, is no comparison to the above.
Lung Ching (dragon well green)
Tikuanyin (oolong variety)
So far I've only tried the Tikuanyin but it's decent. Again, as I'm new to loose leaf I might not be the best judge but I find the flavor pleasing. There are stems in all of the tins and some of them are quite big. To their credit the tins are filled to the brim with tea. In the end I think you really get what you pay for. The tea is nice enough but not as high brow as typical loose leaf teas.
Taken down to two stars. The more tea I try the less I like it. I'm probably going to end up throwing all of these out. You're better off buying bagged tea; it's a higher quality!
Lychee had a highly metallic taste to it. Took two sips and threw the rest out.
Lung Ching was bland and had a dull flavor. Not at all bright and clean as tea normally is. Seemed maybe it was old and stored poorly.
Pu-erh was alright, nothing special. (I'm new to Pu-erh tea so I may not be the best judge on this one. I enjoy Foojay Dim Sum Pu-erh quite a bit. This was like a toned down version).
I found the more of this I drank the more stems I was picking out. Seemed to be almost half stems.

I see all these bad reviews here and I'm assuming these are from people who drink tea for a hobby. The tea isn't the best there is, but it's definitely acceptable. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Anonymous
I've really enjoyed trying the different kinds of tea. I was familiar with a few of the teas but not others, and I felt the price was reasonable enough to try something new. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
