From Townshend's Tea Company

Also known as Tai Mu San. Farm-direct organic green tea grown high in the mountains of southern China. Smooth and satisfying, this tea is similar in flavor to traditional Gunpowder, but carries a hint of nuttiness typically found only in high-grade Sencha.

Leafy, Vegetal, a little grassy…more of a sweet grass tho. It’s almost like a mellow gunpowder taste…much smoother than gunpowder.

This is pretty good!
Special thanks to LiberTEAs for letting me try it!!!

While at Townshend’s the other day, I purchased several different teas from them, this is one that I purchased. It’s one that I’ve been meaning to try from them for a while, but, one that my local Whole Foods does not carry, so I had to wait until I could make my way to their tea shop.

This has a very pleasant vegetative flavor to it, not so much grassy, just vegetal. Very smooth and a very nice sweetness to it (it does NOT need sweetener – it would completely overwhelm an otherwise delightful tea!).

It will be good for at least one more infusion (if not more) because the leaves have not completely unfurled with the first.

Delightful, plenty of flavor with little fuss (smooth without being wimpy, has enough lovely taste without calling a lot of distracting attention to itself with loud notes or complicated flavor interplay), ideal for reading on the couch after dinner. It’s so nuts how much I love green tea now when I’m in the right mood for it.

This tea is very similar to gunpowder, and it does have notes similar to sencha without being too “green.” It also has a nice natural sweetness, so drink it plain!
