From Tealux

Zhu Ye Qing (or Bamboo green) is among the most prestigious Chinese green teas. It is produced in E-Mei mountain area of the Si-Chuan Province, south-west of China. The plantations are over 3000 meters above the sea level and covered by thick fog/mist for most of the year. The harvest of Zhu Ye Qing starts from 3-5 days before Qing-Ming season.

Experience the rich character of Zhu Ye Qing green tea with this extremely popular high quality tea. In addition to tea and food, Zhu Ye Qing is well-known for its panda bears, which contributes to naming this tea. The name comes from the dried tea shape and bamboo forest scent that gives you an overall refreshing feeling. This certified organic handmade tea is made mostly of tea buds picked during the early spring yielding a clean bright color and rich fresh taste that fills your mouth.

Sipdown! 7-something-something. Thanks to Indigobloom for this one. Yeah… it’s odd. I’d be curious to try a fresher harvest, but… yeah this isn’t quite my cup of tea. It tastes a bit metallic, and kind of has a musty vegetal sort of flavour. Not dump-worthy, but not re-steep worthy.

ETA: 784 teas left, because I added the three Amoda ones. Sigh… one day, maybe, if I’m lucky, I’ll hit 750…

OMGsrsly

You can do it! :)

TheTeaFairy

Nice progress Kittenna, I’m impressed, ONLY 784 to go… a breeze!

I really want to see a picture of all your tea. How do you organize 784 teas? I have a bit over 100, and they take up a full cupboard.

Kittenna

Uh, I wouldn’t exactly call them organized…. :P Things are in boxes by company or by swap, mostly, and they’re kind of piled under/around my desk. I’m hoping to organize a bit more once I move. A lot of my teas (close to half) are small sample sizes, which is convenient. The 52teas/Butiki Teas and other larger packets take up a fair bit of room though.

Cavocorax

I bet if you drank just the smallest samples for an entire week you’d be able to knock that number down a lot! But then you wouldn’t get to drink your favourites…

Kittenna

Yep, I definitely could. But I’m in such a crunch with school and other stuff right now, I don’t have time to log things/pay proper attention to them. Once I have time, I should be able to drop that number quickly :)

Cavocorax

Hahah, well those are more than valid priorities. :P

I had a cuppa this today. It was really odd. But, I have allergies/the flu or something nasty that’s opened up the gateway for a devilthing to take up residence in my throat. Sometimes it tickles me, so that I cough, and other times it just plain hurts. Ah well.
Back to the tea. Well it was certainly not what I expected. It was savoury?! like soup broth. Salty, with a bit of pepper and maybe onion or garlic. I’m sure that can’t be right, so I’ll wait on a rating.
When the cup cooled though, it tasted much more vegetal. Not anything like the “bamboo” I get in my thai food though, for what that’s worth!

But it’s not bamboo! :P It’s just a green tea that for some reason has the name bamboo. Anyways, once I can taste properly again too, I’ll try this as well. For now, though, it looks like I’d be best sticking to (strongly) flavoured teas and/or blends I’ve had previously.

Indigobloom

Hmmm apparently it’s supposed to smell like bamboo. Maybe that’s why it tastes funny, cuz I can’t smell??
Ugh, can’t think straight. Was up all night.

I did not like this tea when I first tried and wondered how I was going to finish the bag. But it seems to have grown on me, so I will be able to finish it, just not as quickly as some of the other tea’ I have.

The dry leaf smell reminds me a little of spinach.

The brewed flavour is more reminiscent of steamed asparagus. The taste is a little odd, there’s something that I can’t quite place that is throwing the flavour of this askew. It’s ok. Not a re-purchase tea.
