It’s been a while since I’ve had a Chinese green so this was a bit shocking to my palate, especially because this seems like a pretty bold Chinese green – I just wasn’t prepared for it! It’s very fresh and vibrant tasting – very grass/hay tasting with a spike of something sharp that I sometimes read as mineral-y and sometimes read as nutty. Even reading that note as mineral-y, this still isn’t briny/salty which is a note I get from a lot of Chinese greens. Instead, it’s more sweet with almost a fruity taste to it. It has lots of flavors going on and has a great fresh and bold taste (for a Chinese green). Quite lovely! Thanks so much to TeaEqualsBliss for sharing this one with me!
I LOVE the name of this tea company! :)
This smells like a gentle perfume dry – liquid smells a little bit like flowers from a distance.
This is very light in color.
I can taste the honey-suckle likeness and the more I drink it the better I like it. It’s very clean and crisp and thirst-quenching. YUM!
What an interesting green tea, it’s like none i’ve ever had. The liquor is thicker than usual, and the color is darker as well. It doesn’t taste vegetal,or grassy at all, but instead has an earthy aspect, that reminds me of some black teas maybe? I can’t place the taste, but it is really full and very flavorful. Unfortunately, I have very little of this tea left!
had to up the score on this tea. i really like it more and more as I drink it more times. It is so interesting, and today I really really picked up on that smoky layer of the tea in the scent. It smells like smoke, which is very intense smell. That smoky layer of the smell is in the flavor a little, but not as intensely as in the aroma. This isn’t a grassy green tea, so I would say it would be good for newbies getting into better tea types, as well as tea lovers who just crave a good cuppa. :)
As the head of Utopian Tea, this is one of my all time favorite Oolongs. When I got it as a sample from the actual tea farm, I knew I had to choose this to start off our first wave of teas in our online selection. I know you’ll all enjoy Great Buddha’s Palm :) Goes great with sushi btw..
