I had 3 cups of it in a row in successive steeps at work today.

This tea is amazing looking dry. The picture does NOT do it justice. It is composed of 3/4 inch leaves rolled up so that they are fat little shiny logs with furry seams. They look so delicious I briefly considered eating them instead of soaking them.

Bamboo is the owner’s favorite green and I can see why. It is very flavorful. I will say that it is classically Chinese tasting; having an earthy, malty, robust flavor. It has another quality that I couldn’t fully place. In retrospect it was maybe crayons or freshly sliced rubber.

It won’t be replacing Dragon Well as my favorite green quite yet, but it is definitely in my top five.

Bio

I love food and drink and move around the restaurant industry based on what aspect of it I want to learn about. The aesthetics of the senses interest me, and the process of tea, from preparation through drinking, is one of the most sensually decadent experiences I can think of. When I say I “love” tea, I assume (regarding brain chemistry) that enjoying tea is closely tied, if not an example, of romantic love.
