The loose leaves for this tea are spectacular. They’re roughly one and a half to two inches long, twisted and a mix from light to dark green. The aroma is somewhat light with more vegetal tones than grassy ones.

The liquor is a light yellowed amber. The aroma once brewed is grassier than it is vegertal, but there are some floral notes as well.

Once you’re imbibing the brew though the vegetal overtones return. There’s not much astringency here at all. I taste avacado and maybe light hints of spinach and orchid in the brew. The texture is smooth, similar to an oolong.

I would recommend this tea to any green tea fan, whether you prefer Chinese or Japanese greens. Oolong fans are also likely to enjoy this brew.
