10 Tasting Notes
This is a really interesting tea. I’ve had a lot of tie guan yins, and this is by far the greenest one I’ve had. It was… just very green. I thought I didn’t like it, but then I kept going back to it over and over again, so I guess I did like it! Probably not worth the money, but I’m glad I tried it.
This one is pretty good tea, but you have to be careful to use enough leaves. The leaves are very lightweight, so I recommend using more than a teaspoon per cup. I have used too few leaves before, and the result is a sort of woody taste. This tea is pretty good for everyday use, but it doesn’t have the delicious complexity of the best Taiwanese oolongs.
