Was just labeled as Tieguanyin from Verdant. The aroma is a very healthy fresh vegetal green smell. Mix between spinach, asparagus, and artichokes. An earthy vegetal smell.

Initial taste is very similar to Japanese Sencha (which I don’t like), but less grassy. Has a classic green tea taste to it. First steep was for 1 minute, although they recommended 20 seconds (always too low). No hints of bitterness. Too similar to Japanese Sencha for my tastes.

Second steep was for 3 minutes, and it had a deeper flavor. Tastes like a more oxidized Sencha. Would definitely recommend steeping for 2-3 min. A good tea, but not for me.

Flavors: Hay, Kale, Spinach
