Not my favorite thing from Naivetea so far but still very good. Some people seem to go nuts over Li Shans and Ali Shans. I think they are nice but perhaps a bit too light for me? Or maybe I have not had the right one for me.

In any event this is a very delicate and fresh tasting tea. After brewing the leaves smell of spinach and green pea. Light flavor, mostly floral with a bit of buttery-ness. Very pale gold color. If you are a fan of green tea I would recommend checking this one out…

I kinda go crazy for a few Lishan Oolongs, but only when they are roasted (not to the point of tasting very roasty though). Jade Oolongs are nice and all, but in general are kind of a “Meh” for me compared to ones with just a tiny bit more oxidation or roast to ’em.

I agree that a slight roast brings out a nice nutty element.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta
