I’m not a huge fan of Chinese green teas, but I must admit, this tea is very good for what it is. Furthermore, Zhena’s Gypsy Teas are very good quality no matter what form or line you purchase…another brand I highly recommend.

Aroma: More vegetal than grassy, more asparagus than spinach.

Taste: Same as aroma. More vegetal than grassy, more asparagus than spinach with a little “sparkle” due to the tannins, but not tart, just lively.

Aftertaste: Actually, I’m contradictory compared to taste…as it settles on the palate, it mellows and softens to more of a soft spinach and the tannins mellow as well; still lively but loses some of it’s “zing” factor. Another nice tea to enjoy throughout the day and into the early evening.

Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is another brand I highly recommend; not all flavors will appeal to each person’s palate, however, the quality and freshness of this brands teas [all teas of this brand] are top-notch, exceptional and sublime.
