I have only tried several China Famous Green Teas. This is one of the best ones I’ve tried. However, the flavor was very vegetal, and light. The aroma was very good with this tea, and I enjoyed the different look of the flattened leaves. However, I was disappointed that this tea only came in 0.5 oz. I was also very confused as to how much tea leaves to brew, as the leaves were larger than normal (and much more flat & brittle). Despite this, I enjoyed the tea. It was quite new, and refreshing. I would recommend this tea for Green Tea lovers.

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.
