oh yummy, savory, vegetal green, I would be lost without you <3

And what this? Do I finally detect some of that woody and earthy flavor that others have described. Why yes, I think so. How many more secrets do you hold mysterious green tea?

I think that you have been so aptly named.

This used to be one of my favorites, back when I was drinking lots of green teas. I actually used the name of this tea in the lyrics to my song, TeaMind (Zen Breakfast CD). The actual verse reads:
“Music, in his moment, note by note, the whole of life,
Teamind, just this moment, sip by sip, this is life.
Drinking tea, like playing music,
subtly alters both mind & mood,
from the sky between the branches to the dragon well,
journey within, return renewed.”

Thanks! That’s the 2nd verse :)
That CD is no longer available as a disc, I sold them all! But it’s available for download on itunes, if you’d like to hear it.

My Rating System

100 My happiness absolutely depends on it

95 Will definitely repurchase

85: Might repurchase (teas that depend on my mood)

75 Won’t repurchase (but I would drink it again if offered).

65: meh

45: I reluctantly finished a cup.

15: Couldn’t finish a cup.

I simplified my ratings to single numbers rather than ranges because I can’t precisely compare so many teas with a system more detailed than this.

An unrated tea most often one that I recognize as having significantly notable quality, but that does not suit me personally. Sometimes, I leave teas unrated for other reasons, such as I am undecided or I brewed it wrong, etc.

Note: Boiling temp. barely reaches 200 where I am (and a few times it sticks at 195, I assume due to unexplainable shifts in altitude or the position of the moon. . .aliens?. . .).
