First of all I’m very happy because today I received some samples from a friend from Athens and I got my parcel from Taiwan with tea so I got like 10+ teas to taste! I started with two green and a red.

120 ml gaiwan, 2 gr tea, 78 C water, about 1 min first steep +45-60 sec for next

Dry leaves aroma: Vegetal, grassy, hint of nuttiness
Color: Light green, amazing clarity
Gaiwan lid aroma after steep: Sweet, vegetal, spicy undertone, hint of lime?
Taste: Sweet, grassy, vegetal, little spicy, mint and maybe lime overtone, mostly vegetal
Body: medium-light, light creamy texture.
Leaves examination after steep: Mainly whole, one leaf one bud, almost no oxidation

Not much stamina, though the amount was little. Taste faded out nicely in consequent brews though a bit fast.
Not even a hint of bitterness/astringency even when brewed at high temps, I love that quality in tea :)

Overall a nice everyday green for people that want quality, without any major flaws which is nice, but hasn’t got anything too special about it.
*Don’t know what the rating will be because of the strange bar but I would say somewhere around 80

Bio

Love Taiwanese and Chinese tea.
I’m living in Greece, attending university studying Electrical and Computer engineering. Loving tea and drinking like 2 lt every day.

I usually brew my teas like 15 times each though at the end they are just water…because of low budget xD

Got 1 gaiwan that was a gift and 5 cups. Now 4, last night my cat broke one :(
