MissB sent this one my way and i figured given the heat of the day this afternoon, it was a good choice. It was a nice change to the day, with a refreshing vegetal brew that was almost floral, but not enough to make it undrinkable for me. Overall a nice green tea….if there is a such a thing ;)

Received this from MissB (Thank you!!), and it’s absolutely perfect for today.
The leaf is all rock sugar/vegetal yumminess, and the tea, once steeped, carries on from where the dry leaf left off. Really lovely, with apple and cucumber notes, while continuing with the spinach and curly endive base, yet finishing sweet.
This one is really nice.

Flavors: Spinach, Sugar

Bought this on AliExpress, via YOYO Tea Company. The tin however says, “Pin Wei Ren Sheng” which when I Google it, says is a tea house in Chongqing, China. So I’ve listed it where I purchased it, but… well… This is so tricky, adding teas to the database. Any suggestions welcome.

As for the flavor: this is a beautiful tea, and it reminds me of a few others I’ve grabbed from AliExpress. Peach/apricot notes with something very floral in the background, much more so than any of the similarly-labelled teas I’ve had. I may have steeped it a bit too long as well, as it’s ever-so-slightly bitter and has an odd aftertaste, almost earthy metallic.
