I was very pleased with this tea. My birthday recently passed, and I was given a number of teas from different companies. I decided to try this one first. The name in and of itself sounded good, and the leaves produced an even more awesome brew. The leaves smelled sweet, and earthy (but not too earthy!). For a long time now, I’ve been waiting for a green tea like this one. The brew was light-colored; a yellow-green. And the smell was almost identical to that of the leaves. As for the taste: it was not earthy at all. It had a natural sweetness to it, and a very great “green tea” flavour. It was the perfect thing to drink this evening. I’m so glad I received this tea as a gift, and I will most certainly buy it from Teavana before I’m even done with it.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
