I received tea samples in exchange for my honest review.
I have been a huge fan of green tea for many years, and green tea is a nice way for me to relax. I have been home more than usual during the pandemic, and it has been a perfect time to really take the time to savor some lovely teas.
We have been a fan of Adagio for so many years now, and I have been enjoying their newest addition, Master’s Teas. I always look forward to trying new teas, and Master’s Teas is a great collection of specialty teas.
There is a wonderful variety of teas to choose from, as far as type and region. Last time I ordered, it took me ages to pick out teas because there are so many choices. You can browse by categories like region or type.
My favorite thing about Master’s Teas is that there is so much more than just the tea. You can read about the farmers behind the teas as well as the regions where tea is grown. It really is fascinating to learn how the tea is grown, picked, and prepared.
I had a chance to try the following teas, all of which I love!
The nice thing about the Master’s Teas website is that it has so much information. You can read about the background of the tea, but also all the little details, including how many minutes to steep the tea and at what temperature, and how many infusions you can make.
“Deeply sweet aroma of freshly buttered greens and seaweed.”
I really like the fresh kind of grassy taste that this tea has. It is so delicate, but that “green” taste to it. The Shincha gyokuro has small, thin leaves that almost have a shiny quality, and have a unique appearance.
“Toast, candied nuts, and light vegetal spring greens.”
Genmaicha is such an interesting tea! I have had this variety before at restaurants. I didn’t know the background of this tea until I read about it on the Masters Teas website, “Unlike the affordable luxury it has become today, historically, tea was a pricey commodity. The Japanese peasants found it difficult to afford much tea and would mix it with roasted rice, which was abundant and cheap. Thus, they were able to squeeze more cups from the same amount of leaves. A recipe born of poverty, Genmai Cha has acquired an uptown chic and is now a favorite of urban dwellers in Japan and the West.”
I truly enjoy this tea, and I usually pick this one when I want a rich taste. It has a very unique roasted flavor. I have always found genmaicha teas to be hearty, and that is definitely the case with this one. It was fascinating to learn the history behind this tea after drinking it for so many years!
Bai hao yin zhen
“Flavor notes of honeydew, fresh sweet cucumber and a slight hint of mineral.”
Also known as Silver Needle, this has fuzzy buds. I like the light, floral taste of this tea, and it is neat to see how different the tea leaves and buds are when it comes to different Masters Teas.
Rohini first flush
“Silky texture with white grape, floral, and sultana notes with a hint of minerality and a soft finish.”
This tea has a fresh, interesting taste. Delicate, but still full of flavor with an interesting combination of elements. This is a rare darjeeling tea that looks like a green tea, but is actually a black tea. The Rohini first flush is grown in Darjeeling, India, and this one is a limited edition.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of these teas, and it is fun to pick out something different each day. I am looking forward to trying more of their teas with my next order!

Genmaicha is such an experience to drink – smells like popcorn tastes like roasted green tea. Just a delight. It’s wonderful to see that Masters support and showcase their farmers

These are different– which is a nice change from Lipton, lol.I love green tea too, and yes it’s relaxing and very nice for digestion.
My favourite tea is English Breakfast Tea. But my husband loves green tea so I am going to look some of these up as I didn’t know all of this and it’s really great to know where the tea you are buying comes from.
Green tea is my favorite kind of tea. The best part is just how many different ways you can brew it and different styles!
I do love a cup of tea at night especially…it’s so soothing and comforting. Tea is so exceptionally good for you too! Thanks for sharing these blends with us!
My daughter could drink tea all day long. She loves to relax in her room with a cup
I love tea but I’ve only really tried basic bagged ones. Green tea and raspberry are my favorite 😀
I remember seeing amazing tea fields when I traveled to Sri lanka, I am not sure which type of tea they grow there but tehe sit was amazing….
I am a big tea drinker all year round. These sound amazing and I would love to try first the Shincha Genmaicha.
I love tea,but never have tried any flavored ones! These sound really unusual!
