I really have enjoyed this green tea. It is very smooth and pleasantly sweet, with a light vegetal tone and a lovely citrus-y overtone. Very mellow, relaxing, calming… and at the same time, restorative.

I notice some similarities to a Darjeeling in this tea, as it was grown in the same region. It has the lemon-y note, and even some woodsy tones in the background that are very Darjeeling-esque, however, this tea lacks the astringency that I usually would experience with a Darjeeling. It isn’t as crisp as a Darjeeling, instead, I find this to be rather smooth and mellow.

A very nice offering from Arbor Teas.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
