Good, but not great. About what one would expect from a world market tea.

I’m drinking this chilled today. One quart of water to one teaspoon of leaves, for 48 hours. It’s very light, smooth, and tasty.

I love the way the silvery white leaves intersperse between multitudes of green leaves. This truly is a beautiful tea. I started out by steeping a teaspoon of leaves in a cup of water heated to the proper temperature for green tea. Three minutes later, I strained the tea from the gaiwan to assess the aroma.

The steeped leaves have a bright and clear scent, like a strong white tea. There is very little grassiness in that aroma. The steeped tea smells the same but with a hint of something spicy, almost cinnamon like. I wonder if my nose is going insane, or if this tea managed to pick up a scent from something else, like chai. I figure my taste buds will be more reliable (though I am still enjoying the nice clear scent to this tea).

The taste is just as clear as the aroma. The liquor is thin and slides around the mouth well, yet the flavour lies strongly on the tongue. Still not grassy, yet vegetal, in a way that stands out, but is not overwhelming.

I very much enjoyed this tea, and I think that makes for a very enjoyable sipping green tea.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…
