drank Ancient Emerald Lily by Rishi Tea
429 tasting notes

I figured that if I like Yunnan’s so much, why not find a green Yunnan. The Japanese greens I tried were a bust except for one. Green is new to me, but I actually like this one. Out of the tin this one smells like hay to me. Steeped it takes on a different persona. I get a slightly nutty taste with floral notes. The tea has a sweetness to it and I get the smell or orchids as it cools. I have some Indian greens coming next week so I hope I can find more that I like.

I have been gone from steepster for the last 4 years traveling and getting to know my wife of 45 years better. Now we have retired to North Florida from Maine. We now eat organic and limit our tea selections to proven organic tea companies.
