This is a very nice tea – my favourite so far of the green tea sampler pack from this company! It was unexpectedly sweet when brewed in a gaiwan. It has some caramel flavour, and possibly mango? I brewed it according to the instructions as well, and the results were similar, with a vaguely roasty taste as well. The flavour profile is not what I’d expect from a green tea, but not in a bad way at all. A surprising tea, and definitely enjoyable.

I like trying unique teas, especially those from areas of the world not known for tea production. It’s always something of a gamble and can lead to all kinds of surprises.

While I’m usually not into flavoured or scented teas, there are definitely exceptions. Hei cha which is not pu-erh tends to be my favourite category of tea, but I like some teas of all types. Smoky, creamy, and honey-like tastes generally appeal to me the most.

Top five teas I’ve had thus far (in no particular order):

Mekong Breakfast from Rakkasan Tea Company

2015 Gao Jia Shan “Cha Duo Tang” Wild Harvested Hunan Fu Brick Tea, from Yunnan Sourcing

Asahina Gyokuro “Hon Gyokuro” from Hojo Tea

Any good Lapsang Souchong

2018 Cha Yu Lin “Liu Bu Xi Village” Tian Jian Basket Tea from Yunnan Sourcing


Rural New England
