this delicate green is hard to explain to anyone who hasn’t had it before. it’s both steamed like a japanese green and pan fried like a chinese green. the resulting flavors are a hybrid of vegetal body with sweet and nutty notes making each infusion crisp on the end of your tongue. for me this tea is a special occasion or a once in a while tea. not an everyday staple like a dian lu or a da hong pao. it also makes each brewing more enjoyable and savorable. I’ve been drinking a lot of Mao Jian recently and that’s comparable flavor wise. Mao Jian is more buttery and sqaushy though. this style of curled greens is really nice this time of year
