This is my last time drinking Yun Cui from my tea stash at home, so I thought it deserved a little farewell review.

I started drinking this tea awhile ago but have since taken a break to venture into new kinds of green teas. I can say I like it less than I did before, now that I’m starting to learn what I like in a cup of green tea.

The aroma of this tea is okay. You can pick up a lot on the nuttiness, slightly sweet. The taste is very similar to the aroma, and the nuttiness really comes out. There is a very slight vegetal taste kind of hiding in the background that compliments the nuttiness in an… interesting way. It’s not at all bitter, actually more kind of sweet.

I’ve mentioned before in green teas that the flavours are too soft/weak, so I do have to give it to this tea that the flavours have quite a nice round body. I also appreciate that the nutty flavour kind of remains on your tongue afterwards. I also appreciate that it is organic.

Overall, I’m not nuts over nutty when it comes to greens, so this tea is gonna have to fall back a little on my ranks. I probably will not purchase any more of this tea in the future.

Farewell Yun Cui!

edit: just wanted to add that this tea actually tastes a lot like the Gyokuro Genmaicha I had from teavana a few days ago, with all of the nutty flavour and what not.
