This is a decent green tea. I think after my encounters with Laoshan green, I’ll rarely be so kind with my descriptions of other greens.
This one has a delicate vegetal flavor. It’s not bitter or astringent. A good every day green.
From the Hubei province in China, this organic tea is produced at high elevations and is also known as Green Jade and Jade Cloud. With dark green needle-like leaves that that are finely rolled, this organic and Fair Trade Certified tea has a light-bodied brew with low astringency, a slight sweetness, a kelp-like vegetal quality and a lingering, present aftertaste. It’s unique sweetness is unlike other grades of Chinese green tea such as Mao Feng which are also needle-like in appearance.
this is one of the more complex greens i have come across and the description from the purveyor definitely does it justice, however i would like to add that this tea has some similar levels of complexity that i would compare to an oolong. definitely not your typical green tea.
