Thank you to Teavivre for this free sample. I’m just sorry it has taken me this long to make time to try it.

The dry leaf has a thick milky floral aroma. As the nuggets open, the teapot (a glass one) I can see that the soup and leaf together take on an electric green colour that is really exciting. The liquor is pale green. It smells more creamy than the dry leaf and the floral notes are enhanced. The mouthfeel is milky and the tea is sweet and vegetal. The sweetness continues to develop on the tongue after swallowing. Overall, this is a light, refreshing tea that is perfect for warm summer days like today. Definitely a good choice.

Interestingly, I wrote about this tea two years ago. It is instructive to see how my descriptions have changed in that time.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral

I love this tea, and I agree it is beautiful to watch as it steeps. Thank goodness for glass pots!

Yes, thank goodness for glass pots. I love mine, although I also crave some single cup ceramic/porcelain/celadon pots, but that is a whole different issue. :)

Haha! Teaware is a constant craving in my world ;-)

Bio

I am a historical consultant, Vikingologist and tea enthusiast! To be honest, I have always liked decent tea, but in 2011 I started working at learning what good tea really is. I continue to expand my horizons and discover new teas with the aid of my chums on Steepster, much to the chagrin of my wife, who despairs of my enthusiasm.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
