A medium-bodied green tea that tastes very vegetal, leaning towards steeped laver or seaweed. The savory, grassy notes disappear as soon as they hit your tongue, but are unmistakably there.
For fans of Chinese greens, this is not a disappointing experience. It is homey, almost eerily familiar except for a stronger seaweed-ish pull on the palate. It’s comforting and warm. But it is by no means spectacular or even particularly special.
Brewed correctly, this tea may be served with no fear of embarrassment to guests seeking a plain green to sip on. Even by so-called tea aficionados, this will smooth on the palate and inoffensive.
But it is not particularly complex, and is rather one-dimensional in taste. Therefore it is best to reserve this tea for nights when a comforting green tea is drunk in abundance to pull one through an arduous task such as studying, rather than to drink it for sheer gustatory pleasure.
