Thanks for this fine sample Teavivre!
I’m generally a green tea drinker, straying into black, but also a lover of the whites (Silver Needles and Bai Mu Dan)
ALL for their distinct personalities.
This Xin Yang Mao Jian Green is a stronger green falling somewhere between a good Dragon Well and the quieter Bi Luo Chun. Next to The Dragon Well, It’s a hair more smoky than toasty, still brightly vegetal, with sweet hay notes, with some astringency but no bitterness.
This is definitely a green I want to keep in my larder as a nice counterpoint to the (always favorite) Dragon Well.
