Sample provided by TeaVivre – thank you Angel and company

The fuzziness of the curled dried leaves is quite interesting. This looks to me like a green Golden Spring Yunnan-like tea. Oh, it tastes like a black tea too…

This one took me by surprise because of the miso-taste. It reminded me of golden fuzzy yunnan buds from Adagio I tried in one of my first tea adventures. I could not pinpoint any flavours that reminded me of chinese green tea: no nuttyness, no vegetable notes, no buttery flavour. I got a smoky, miso-soup type flavour, and folks, I really don’t enjoy those things in my green tea. The polarity of this tea compared to my expectations did make me appreciate the vast differences in green tea. I love that this was not what I expected, and over the next few cups I hope my taste buds learn to appreciate a smokey green tea like this one.

Did you notice the fruity tasty of this tea?

Lindsay

Sadly, no I didn’t. I need to try again and look a bit harder. This tea is mysterious to me!

TeaVivre

Maybe you will find the different things after try again!

I love this one. It is one of three I am most likely to grab out of my drawer. The other two are Dragonwell and Jasmine Pearls.

Lindsay

Those two are my faves too K S. I want to love this one like I love the others!
