Finally got to spend some quality time with this one. I will have review on my blog in a couple days. The first time I fixed this it was tainted by onions from our chili making. The second time I knew I liked it but wasn’t sure how it differed from other Chinese greens. Now I think I latched on to what makes this a winner. The dry leaf smells fresh and green. After steeping the leaf reminds me of stew beef – I love it when it does that. The liquor is nearly clear. The sip starts buttery and veggie then mid sip I catch moments of floral like a green oolong. I have never caught this in a green before. Awesome! Late in the sip it changes back to sweet green. There is no bitterness. I really found this to be refreshing.
I guess I am not done giving rating numbers.
