I also love to give this as a gift for the hard to buy for friend!

    Brilliant earthiness I can always depend on a rich flavor that adds a complex earthiness to every dish--hot or cold. I even use Tehama Blend in my homemade brownies... it adds a special richness that makes the best brownies ever.

    Yes, you're definitely worth this! Great stuff! (that's why I always come back for more) And, too, (sadly) because there are a LOT of bad olive oils out there right now.

    AM My favorite olive oil. I've been using it for years. Fantastic taste, fruity but not spicy or heavy. 5 stars!

    The taste of Italy right here After returning from Italy, I was looking for an olive oil that would bring back that wonderful taste that I had become accustom to. I turned to one on my best resources: Cook's Illustrated and their top pick was right here. The Tahama olive oil is as good as the oil we brought back from Europe hands down.

    Tehama County Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil The absolute best for salads and dipping..I think.

  10. 5 out of 5

    Mild oil Gallon is a very good value for use in cooking. Flavor is not overwhelming. Not useful for dipping or anything that you want zingy. Pleasant grassy fragrance. 'No-cough' oil. I know this is heresy, but I decanted it into small jars, vacuum-packed and froze it. I have not tried this with this brand of oil, but for other brands, this is the BEST way I have found to keep the oil fresh. I have opened up jars after two years frozen and the oil was still fragrant and delicious.

    Very, very tasty oil! A great oil for salads, breads, dressings, hummus, etc.

    Great California Olive Oil, great service I was looking for California olive oil when I learned of the troubles in Italy with adulterated olive oil. This is wonderful Californian olive oil, reasonably priced and the service is excellent. I was so impressed. I called very early in the morning and a person actually answered the phone unlike most California businesses who are often hard to get hold of because they are on Pacific time.

    Wonderful oil... great service! This is the second year I've ordered 2 gallons of the Tehama County Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It is marvelous! It tastes FRESH and ALIVE. I keep it in the fridge and just decant some into a bottle that I keep at room temperature to use. I love it! The price is so reasonable, and order that much I even get free shipping! Thank you for making this available!

    Best Olive Oil We've ever Tasted We originally tried your olive oil at the LA County Fair, loved it, and bought a bottle. Decided we wanted to share with our friends and give some out at gifts so we ordered a case. They all love it too. Ran out a couple of months ago and realized how much we missed it. Ordered another case to share some, but keep most. So happy we did!

    Marvelous EVOO!!! We purchased two gallons of Tehama Country Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I really don't think I've ever tasted genuine olive oil before. This is fabulous! So bright and fresh and clean tasting. Thank you for making it available in gallon sized tins at such a great price. I am very pleased and will be a returning customer. I also recommended it to our daughter and she ordered two gallons as well, and loves the oil. Thank you!

    I BUY IT BY THE GALLON NOW ...and I normally have to have several of the smaller bottles too. Why purchase from a huge corporate factory when I can support a local operation. AND it tastes 100% better than anything in our grocery stores. AND I know how just how fresh it is, when it was pressed, on and on. This farm is all about quality, and I am a believer. My family loves their Tehana Blend, and the Eva's best. The shop has great gifts, too.

    Tehama County Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil We love Pacific Sun Olive Oil. For several years we have purchased several cases so we can give a bottle to each of our employees as a Christmas gift.

    A Real Beauty This was the first time tasting Tehama County Blend. I have found it to be my new favorite. The description of a smooth buttery taste is very accurate. No bitter taste, just pure enjoyment.

    Fantastic! The order was easy to place. The item arrived fairly quickly. The olive oil came in a new type of container, which was much better than the plastic one used in previous orders. Really happy with my order because the olive oil is fantastic and had a good experience with the order!

    Best olive oil I love the new packaging in the tins. I have tried other fancy olive oils and I still end up using this oil as both my general cooking oil, my salad dressing oil, my oil to drizzle on top of grilled veggies, the oil for my grilled steaks, my fried eggs, my dog's home cooked food allergy diet, etc. I use it for everything. It has a fresh, vibrant, fruity smell and taste.

    Tehama County Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil I am very pleased with the service and the product. I selected it for the health benefits. I'm a little confused about the shipping. Before at checkout I was given the choice of selecting 'other' as mode of shipping for a single bottle witch aloud me to select USPS at a cost of $25.00. It seems I no longer have that option alto the page still suggests it is possible.

    Who knew?! I'm an 'olive oil newbie', meaning in all my years I never realized there was such a difference in flavors. I'm trying several from Pacific Sun, and this is the first. Wow, so surprising to actually taste the differences, the subtle flavors. It's delightful! Now I'm looking for new ways to use olive oil. :-)

  41. 5 out of 5

    great tasting olive oil! When I found out that many of the store brands of olive oil were adulterated, I found this company that produces the real thing. I placed an order and absolutely love this flavorful oil. I would recommend it to all who appreciate real authentic food.

    Excellent olive oil This fantastic olive oil is very fruity and a bit grassy, not too much of a strong pepper finish. Fantastic for drizzling on sliced tomatoes, making salad dressings, dipping for bread, anything that olive oil works for, this is the best olive oil. My family loves it.

    very good this is a good general purpose extra virgin olive oil. i am looking for one to use for cooking as well everyday dressings, and this is very suitable. i am considering buying a gallon, but need to find out if its packaged in metal, plastic, or glass--the website doesnt say. ?I had a HUGE problem with your bottles and bottle caps. they were difficult to separate from the part under the perforation. worse yet, the caps had nasty sharp burrs along the edges. I had to use a file to smooth those edges, something I have never ever had to do with any other product cap.

    Awesome as always Excellent customer service, quick shipping, and amazing product. What more can you say? Will be a customer for as long as they'll have me.

    Tehama County Blend EVOO I have been using this EXCELLENT extra virgin olive oil for many years. It is of the highest quality and possesses an excellent full bodied fruity taste that rivals the finest olive oils from Italy. Having received my Maestro Chef Certificate from the International Culinary Institute in Italy, I have worked with and tasted the finest olive oils from all over the world. I would place this Tehama County Blend right with the best of the best!

    excellent everyday olive oil We bought a gallon of the County Blend for our everyday cooking. We decided to buy from Pacific Sun because of reports over the last few years that olive oil marked 'extra virgin' may not be what is actually in the bottle. What we bought at Pacific Sun is most certainly extra virgin olive oil - it is rich and buttery and full of depth. It does not have the character of some of Pacific Sun's other labels but the price per oz at the gallon price is competitive with standard olive oils at the grocery store. The quality far exceeds oil at twice the price at the store and you know you are getting the real EVOO. Strongly recommended.

    Absolutely delighted!! I couldn't be more satisfied with my experience with Pacific Sun. My order came promptly and was packaged with utmost care. I had tried to enjoy the taste of EVOOs on my food many times before but just couldn't see how people could stand the taste or smell of it. Pacific Sun's EVOOs are a delight for the senses-I enjoy the fresh wholesome smell and taste of their products and would never go back to the brands I tried previously. Now I can enjoy the healthful benefits AND taste of EVOO in my diet. Thank you!

    LOVED THE OLIVE OIL We actually ate this olive oil first at Pizzeria Bianco in Pheonix. It has a unique flavor and we loved it. We ask where they got it and they gave us the name. I then ordered online and had it delivered. We eat it often as a dipping oil. It has a great peppery taste and it is GREAT that it was made in the USA.

    Amazing flavor We were delighted when we received our box of olive oil and our fusti because we were looking forward to using them -- what we didn't know was that we would open the package to find an amazing instance of personalized service -- a hand written note and details about shipping being less than had been expected. Needless to say, we were then delighted for two reasons! The oil itself is fantastic. Excellent fruity flavor with a fantastic peppery finish. We couldn't be happier with it, the fusti we ordered, or the outstanding customer service we received.
