3 Tasting Notes


A nice tea,
Very delicate flavour,
Works well served gong-fu style, during multiple infusions the flavour went from a woody earthiness to a slight persimmon-esque flavour.

Although I prefer the company’s Tie Guan Yin to this.

I always enjoy this tea,
I usually make it western style but today as I only had a small amount left I made it gong-fu style and it revealed a hidden depth of floral flavour that the western style seems to lack.

Just thought I’d write this as it was slightly disappointing that Northern Tea Merchants had nothing yet listed,
I buy most of my tea from them and it is always of the highest quality.

Currently drinking this(I assume, mine has different packaging) as a ‘main’ green so to speak as I’m almost out of other teas and haven’t been able to get to tea shop lately,
It tastes slightly grassy with barely any astringency but lacks any subtle flavours, in way a cheap Gunpowder tea would,
Low quality but takes heat well.
