Getting excited for Spring green teas?

I am! What kind of green tea will you buy this year? For the past few years I have gotten the shincha from Den’s Tea and also a long jing.

Teavivre just released fresh dragonwells which I ordered right away. Will get their huang shan mao feng too when its available.

Also plan to get shincha from Yuuki-Cha, Verdant’s Laoshan green and 1st flush TGY, and some dan cong from YS.

At the moment I’m busy drinking down my stash to make room for these teas and justify new tea purchases to myself :-)

My local shop, Premium Steap, really excels with the greens. As for what type I get, that remains to be seen. I’ll smell inside all of the canisters, and the ones that smell the best come home with me. Kind of like like playing with all the dogs at the pound before you bring one home.

Premium Steap is local for you? Lucky! I LOVED Emperor’s Red, but they don’t carry it anymore.

YUM! I need to make an order with Yunomi ( soon because of a teacup I am coveting. Has anyone tried their greens and have good recommendations – I like it all, and usually try to hit the middle ground between budget and premium (looking for that elusive value balance ;) )

Also I’ve been thinking about pulling the cart-trigger on a some Yunnan Sourcing 2016 Greens. I just need the weather to warm up a tiny bit more to get me in the mood!

So excited!

We’re offering a special this week on our Jasmine Pearls ( in case you’d like to try them – it’s so green and springy and floral and aromatic. :)

I’ve been excited for weeks! I pre-ordered the Ming Qian Dragonwell and the Nonpareil Huang Shan Mao Feng Tea from Teavivre. And I positively can’t wait until Den’s Tea allows pre-orders for their shincha since I haven’t ordered from them in TWO years.

My Teavivre order arrived today!

@Kiwi yay! How do you like the Dragonwell and the Mao Feng? Have you tried them yet?

Yes, they’re positively delicious!

I placed a pre-order for some Japanese green tea from O-Cha. I can’t wait until it comes. It should come in late April or early May. I’ve been craving fresh green tea lately.

I wrote a very good article about the benefits of the green tea –
I think that this can be very interesting and you can learn something new.
