In general, I prefer Japanese greens to Chinese, but for some reason I keep buying different Chinese greens to see if I can find one I like. This one’s not bad; it reminds me of really ripe honeydew melons. You know how they can get so ripe that the sweetness becomes heavy? Yeah, this tea tastes like that, even when steeped for only one minute. It doesn’t have the fresh vegetal note that I like in greens, though. It would probably be better for someone who prefers sweet, mellow teas.

Bio

A friend once asked me, if I could have anything in the world, what would I want? I immediately answered, “Superpowers, specifically superspeed like the Flash.” He said that didn’t count because it wasn’t real, so my second choice was a cupboard full of every flavor of tea in existence. He promptly told me that that was a waste of a wish and said he would ask for the world’s biggest yacht.

But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure that I made the better choice. Slowly saving up money for higher quality teas is helping to convince me. Off I go to taste as many teas as I possibly can (and maybe dream about superpowers along the way).
