86 tasting notes

I knew I would love this tea the moment I opened the tin. I am not a big fan of Chinese greens, most of them taste too sweet and bake-y to me to enjoy on the regular basis. This one is extremely different. The dry leaf has a very green, flowery and a tiny bit spicy aroma, it actually reminds me of freshly-cut-grass smell or fresh hay. I don’t really get any sweetness or creaminess from it which is exactly what I’ve been looking in green tea for quite a while.

The brew has a light yellow-greenish color, even somewhat similar to sencha and maintains the same aroma the dry leaf has. The flavor is absolutely amazing, it’s green with a very pleasant bitterness and leaves the back of my tongue tingling after each sip.

The flavor is also highly addictive -once I tried it I got hooked and can’t really stop. Three pots in a row talk for themselves…

I KNOW I had a sample of this. I ordered their new arrivals sampler… but I can’t find it ANYWHERE. So I’m jealous.:)

I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea all my life. I always take tea plain without adding any sweetener or milk to it. Would love to swap for tea, feel free to contact me about it.
