The first green tea from China that I really enjoyed. The detailed description that
eastkyteaguy left for the 2017 version still applies. I will not go in such detail but just say that it has a great aroma and a really complex taste: floral notes, citrusy spiciness, spinach and honey. It also gives multiple quality infusions (with sweetness becoming more prominent in the later ones), which is always a plus.

Just a very accessible and forgiving (re: temperature, seeping time) tea for an extremely affordable price. I will probably order more.

Update: I had this tea a few more times. While I still like it a lot, the truth is that all of the complex goodness lasts only one steep in a gaiwan. The second steep is already markedly less interesting, and the subsequent ones are simply not enjoyable at all (one-dimensional vegetal bitterness dominates). Had to lower the score accordingly

Flavors: Flowers, Grass, Honey, Spicy, Spinach

I like to drink teas to recreate a specific mood, or just to take a break at work. The world of tea is so endless, patiently waiting for exploration and rewarding you in many ways big and small.

I am looking forward to years of playing with tea leaves, gaiwans, cups, and YouTube videos.

My ratings:

90 or more – a very good/excellent tea, I can see myself ordering it again.

80-89 – it is a good tea, I enjoyed it but not enough to reorder.

70-79 – an OK, drinkable tea but there are certainly much better options even in the same class/type.

60-69 – this tea has such major flaws that you have to force yourself to finish what you ordered.

<60 – truly horrible teas that must be avoided at all costs.
