From Kwong Sang

Kwong sang tit koon yum tea is a green tea grown in the highlands of Fukin,China. It has a bold flavor and fragrance. When drunk straight, it is a true Chinese everyday tea of the type commonly consumed in China.

This tea should brew for three to five minutes. Start with cold water, bring to a boil. Add to tea pot with tea. For best flavor, tea should be used loose; however, for ease and convenience use Roland Chrome Tea Balls.

For me the pre-brew scent is odd. It’s what I would expect if coffee and green tea mated and had a baby. The green is much stronger when brewed.
Warning to others, I’m not a green tea fan and didn’t realize what this was until I brewed it since my packaging is in Chinese. My rating will be lower then someone who enjoys green teas more.
Anyway, the flavor is pretty much green tea. It does taste fresher and crisper then some other green teas that I’ve had.

My grandpa had me right out the Chinese hanzi/Japanese kanji for “green tea”  (緑茶)and “black tea” (紅茶) as a sort of cheat sheet for when he buys in Chinatown. Maybe you can have an image saved of the characters to help with online purchases, if that’s the issue. =)

This tea is a bit interesting. I would call it as being in the light and sweet group of green teas but it has some extra depth that is hard to really describe. Decent but personally I think I will be using the rest for ice tea and will not be buying it again.

A nice, balanced tea, I blended it with a bit of vanilla tea to give it a slightly sweeter aftertaste.

Really can appreciate this tea. As the lady of the vegetarian supermarket said to me: There is tea to strengthen your Yin and there is tea to strengthen your Yang… this tea is right in the middle, for when you are already balanced.
As it seems I am balanced, this tea is well taken by my body. Drinks easily, has enough power to notice its strength and can easily be steeped up to 4 times, becoming more gentle per steep, without losing its characteristic taste.

I enjoy tea very much but I am far from an expert in understanding of tea but, here it goes:
From what I can tell so far, I lean towards green tea. I haven’t developed a taste for strong tea and this tea has a mild yet satisfying effect. I can enjoy a pot in the morning (weekends) when I have time to savor it. :)
