Also known as “Thousand Miles Yancha.”
This stuff is phenomenal
Usually brewed gong fu-style.
I have this in wrapped sachets. The only “teabag” in my house! I bring it with me wherever I go.
Such a good basic green. I have my whole family addicted. I think I may actually like it more than the higher end Meijiawu, but probably because I feel like I can just enjoy it rather than feel like I have to analyze it so it’s not wasted.
Love this tea! Have been drinking it almost daily in my new Korean tea set. It’s very fresh and tastes like snow peas or something.
They’ve been out of this at the store for a few weeks. I just got more the other day and am having a huge pot of it this morning on a miserable rainy day. Quite comforing.
It’s quite a jolt. Very strong. I think I’ve become spoiled, but I much prefer Mangalam FOP as my morning breakfast. Good, but not something I’d want to keep in the house again.
I used to drink Chinese Blacks every morning, but lately all I want is a good Assam with my breakfast, whether it’s cereal or chicken parm. _
Assam will certainly wake you up thoroughly in the morning. :D
(BTW Chicken parm for breakfast?!)
The only tea I will add milk and sugar to. (Well, except for Lapsang Souchong sometimes and Chai sometimes, but for some reason I don’t count those. >_
Light, buttery, vegital. Very nice.
I drink tea, knit, and pretend to cook.
I work for Harney & Sons but I have tried and enjoy many other teas as well. I just get spoiled working for such a wonderful tea company with wonderful teas.
