I was pretty surprised to see that this one truly does live up to the hype. This is creamy, buttery, floral, mildly vegetal, smooth, silky, rich, sweet, and keeps going and going. I followed CTG’s brewing parameters exactly and was pleased with results. Also, I have to agree with fellow taster, Adham and say that the first infusion kinda does taste like rice pudding! Good Call on that one Adham! The only downfall is that it is a bit pricey and requires a lot of leaf to give up the optimal results.

Yes, this is such good tea. Glad you’re enjoying it too!

It is probably as good as TGY gets. I have been thinking about it all day.

Bio

I am a tea lover and have reviewed teas on Teaviews.com for quite a while and have logged over 300 tea reviews for them. Bear in mind that I have a huge amount of teas in my personal collection that I have never even reviewed.

I use the Teaviews rating system when rating on here. I guess the biggest thing I’d like to point out is that a tea in the 7 or 70 range is usually one that I would buy but would likely not place an order just to get it. It is a secondary item. Once you start getting up to an 8 or 80+, those are the teas that I would place an order just to get or are an item that I would likely replenish.

9-10
One of the best teas I’ve ever tasted — I will definitely be buying it again in the future!

7-8
An excellent tea — I would more than likely buy it again.

5-6
A decent tea — it was nice enough, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase it again.

3-4
Not a very good tea — it wasn’t completely awful, but I’d not want to drink it again.

1-2
An awful tea — I couldn’t even finish drinking
