Thank you LiberTEAS for this sample.

The leaves are smaller, yet whole. They slightly resemble longjing in their medium green coloration, however they are not quite as flat in form. Not a noticeable amount of smokiness to the dry leaves, mainly grassy with a faint fruity fragrance.

The liquid is a pale yellowish-green and is very clean and smooth. There is no detectable astringency, only a small amount of tartness at the end of the sip. There is some sweeter, even a peach/plum blossom type of undertone.

Plainly, this is a very nice green tea and could be used for an everyday type of tea. There would not be much fear of it becoming common.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West that has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!

I guess the only way to get the bigger picture is to start with that I love tea. Almost all traditional teas are welcomed, and I have been know to try a few flavored or blended teas.
