This tea really wasn’t that great, though it was decent, as far as bagged green teas go. I wish they told what kind of green tea it actually was in the bag. My guess was sencha.

A little better this time, brewed it with fewer leaves. Come on, Diānhóng! I need you to get me through this day!

Mmm, first tea of the morning. Hopefully I did not burn the leaves…

A good anytime-sencha. Nothing special, but good flavour overall.

Dry leaves are fragrant with the smell of cocoa and have a fresh, roasted aroma to them. Very dark colour to the leaves. First steeping produces a cup that smells a bit like hojicha, but has a very light and smooth flavour, with a light brown liquor. Second cup is darker, almost nearer to the colour of a black tea. Also has quite an earthy taste to it. Deep, rich, and still very mellow with some chocolate notes to it. Second steeping of the leaves gave me a cup that carries much more of the roasted flavour. Almost too much. Definitely not using so many leaves next time. the normal teaspoon of leaves is too much for the small cast iron pot.

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…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
