From Adagio Teas

Green tea from the Zhejiang province of China. The name translates to ‘safety and prosperity.’ Crisp, fresh green aroma, pale yellow-gold liquor and cool, almost floral or minty notes on the infused leaf after it cools from steeping. The flavor is sweet spinach and textured like tender bamboo. Mildly brisk and very mellow.

The description is apt. Vegetal in a spinach sort of way, with a crisp, lingering finish, almost reminiscent of mint but not quite there (for me, even when it’s still hot). There is a hint of flowers but it fades quickly… more of a nasal aroma when first drinking. I like. The leaves, when unfurled, are larger than the smaller-leafed anji bai cha I had elsewhere. Pretty in a gaiwan. Does not seem to get bitter easily. I like that… So far infused maybe 5-6 times before it begins to lose flavour.

Good as an everyday cup, nothing terribly complex or exciting, just a basic cup of grassy green tea. Pleasant and mild, would make a good introduction to green teas. Call me crazy, but I’ll take this over Sencha any day, I guess I just lean more towards the Chinese greens.

I brewed this one a bit strong a first, but it was still really good. It’s simply a light and smooth green tea, nothing too complex. It’s also fairly easy to drink!

Nice subdued green tea taste. Not too earthy at a two minute steep time just how I like Green Tea.

So far this is still my day to day green tea. So easy to just sip on.

I’ve no passion for greens, but this one I quite like. It has a light, but not weak flavor, and it’s very easy to steep. Its flavor is similar to that of Japanese greens, but milder; it makes me think of a field of clover and hay. The best thing is that it’s very very smooth: great ‘drinkability’.

Not a very exciting tea by any means. It’s a mellow one, with a fair amount of grassiness. Not a bad tea, but not a great one.

Simple green tea. Not a strong green taste but is still distinctly vegetal.

Very weak. Tastes like supermarket dust. Too simple and virtually no nose.
