Green tea from the Fujian province of China. In professional tea terms, 'Pekoe' is actually just a grade of tea, referring to the size of the leaf. Many tea drinkers have seen this term on packages of everyday black teas (most famously, 'Orange Pekoe'). Our Green Pekoe is a lovely everyday green tea: delicate pale yellow liquor, soft texture and pleasant aroma like freshly roasted artichokes or okra. Slightly toasty and very balanced, mellow astringency. Steep at 180°F for 2 minutes

      Very subtle but also very enjoyable. I really liked this tea and was disappointed to learn Adagio is discontinuing it.

      A mild, slightly grassy green tea. Not my favorite, but pleasant enough.

      I can barely taste it. Not too far off from just hot water. I steeped 4min at about 180degF. I got an extremely light color and barely any distinguishable flavor.

      Very basic green tea with a hint of sweetness. Not the best green tea I’ve had but also not the worst.

      Mellow is a very good word to describe it. Although it's a green tea, it shares some tastes with white teas, leading to a delicate cup.

      Green pekoe is one of my preferred green teas. It's not as bitter as other green teas

      A solid green tea staple, a bit more bitter and less robust than some other blends that I've preferred (like sleeping dragon)

      A very good basic green tea with nice light vegetal flavors. Almost reminds me of a white tea
