I really liked this one, vegetal with a hint of sweet. My second steep had hints of artichoke, which I love. After reading some of the comments here I am excited about the 3rd and 4th steeping to see how it changes.
“It looks like this is a fairly polarizing tea – a lot of 80s and a lot of 60s. I’m going to be on the 80s side of the fence because I really like this. It’s very mild and I imagine that might be...” Read full tasting note

This Zhejiang region tea is rich and complex with a sweet and hypnotic aroma. In each sip you will find a decadent character like that of a sweet bun, with biscuit and butter-like notes. We hope you will feel indulgent with each luscious sip.

The second of my new green teas is Dongshan Dolce from Adagio. The tea leaves themselves have a sweet grassy smell that reminds me of alfalfa. The tea itself is a mild green with a very mellow flavor. Slightly sweet, it is a very smooth cup of tea. It is a little “grassy” tasting, but not to the point that it is unpleasant at all. Not a new favorite, but still a nice cup of tea, especially for true green tea lovers.
