I agree with TeaEqualsBliss – the dry leaves look very unique, grey-ish, and fine! I was very excited to try this tea. It’s quite vegetal and savory like all the greens I’ve tried from Life in a Teacup, and at least as delicious. It has just enough astringency to cleanse the mouth, and nothing more. I could see myself picking up a bag of this one day – it’s an all around great Chinese green.

Backlogging (so, based almost entirely on my notes)

Experience buying from Life in a Teacup http://steepster.com/places/2861-life-in-a-teacup-online-easthampton-massachusetts

Age of leaf: advertised as spring 2011, received early fall 2011, brewed up weeks later.

Dry leaf: Tightly curled leaves, similar in appearance to Chun Mee; mild smoky aroma.

Brewing guidelines: Standard parameters for my green teas Loose in glass Bodum pot. Stevia added. 7 grams tea, 3 cups water.
……….1st: 170, 1’
……….2nd: 175, 1.5
……….3rd: 177/185, 2’
……….4th: 190, 2.5’

Color and aroma of liquor: clear pale green; < no notes here on aroma of liquor >

Appearance and aroma of wet leaf: Moderate quality: lots of vibrant looking full leaves and some budsets, yet an appreciable number of medium-sized to small-sized pieces. Smells vegetal and roasted, yet almost stale (I am not certain what I meant by this).

Flavor: A good vegetal green tea taste. Little flavor on forth steeping.

Value: To me, a decent tea, but not worth paying $4 / OZ.

Overall: Nothing really stood out about this tea. I brewed it up on the same day I brewed up the Teavivre HSMF (which is a little less expensive), and they were both about as good.

I’ve got a test, a quiz, and two assignments due today, so I heated up a lean pocket for a quick and easy lunch. Nuke it for two minutes, and when I take it out of the microwave, the sleeve melted two penny sized holes into my plate. How did that even happen? I’ve never seen a plate melt from two minutes in the microwave.

Anyway, so this tea intimidated me. The dry leaf smelled a bit smokey and bitter and astringent, all think I don’t like in tea. The wet leaf, though, smelled like savory dark green vegetables, and I started to relax a bit.

1teaspoon, 8oz water, 170F, 1 minute steeps. 180F 2 minute steep.

The first steep is actually quite mild and gentle. No one flavor really stands out, just a vague sweet vegetal flavor. Second steep is much like the first, maybe a hint of green bean?

The third steep I bumped up the time and the temp to try to get more flavor out of it. But it didn’t seem to help, because this cup was as uneventful as the previous two. I’m not impressed, and even though I expected not to like it, the reason I don’t is because of the lack of flavor instead of flavors I don’t like.
