Light and airy, with some earthiness. The leaves are soft and velvety, with plenty of tiny hairs to make their way into the infusion. Aroma is rather weak. The flavor reminds me of cut grass that’s been left in a pile for a few days: herbal and grassy, but with some light mulchy, compost-like overtones. This is a flavor profile I enjoy, but it’s very light and mild so you might enjoy it even if old grass isn’t your thing. :-)

This isn’t a superstar Long Jing by any stretch, but it is good. A nice, very light everyday tea.

Improves over multiple infusions. I usually get 4-7 brewings, depending on how strong I make it.

Bio

User experience guy and web developer. I started drinking loose-leaf tea in 2005, and grew to love the lighter, smoother styles of tea.

I’m really more of an “OolongTeaSteve”, but “GreenTeaSteve” sounds better. :-) I’m also into craft beer, wine, & dark chocolate.
