My friend Colin was often in China for work. I just recently found this out. I told him I was looking for tea. He sent this to me as it is one of his favorites. Of course, now that I know about his whole often in China thing, and that he loves tea and would send me tea (and wouldn’t let me pay him for it!!!) then he gets a new job and I no longer have a source to pick me up tea. Ah well.
This tea actually has a date on the side of the vacuum sealed bag of 2014.12.3 so it’s quite fresh. And it looks and tastes like it’s that fresh.
It’s very green tasting, like a cross between spinach and green beans, not quite either, but definitely some of both. It’s almost slippery it’s so buttery. I’m loving it.
This is both energizing and comforting in the the same mug. I am working from home today and pretty busy, so I didn’t really have time to pull out the small tea set he sent me to make this tea in, but it’s definitely on my to do list. (Yeah, Colin wouldn’t let me pay for that, either. Or any of the other teas he sent.)
