The tasted improved dramatically when in a gaiwan versus regular open glass brewing, glad I wanted to review this one until I had time to respect the leaves. Usually I just dragonwell village style glass brew it before the gym which results in a plain jane green tea taste. I got the daintly sweet asparagus notes with a whiff of ever so slight floral nature I would have got off a higher end shi feng but a little bit of the complexity was missing.
Not a bad example but I think this takes fourth place of long jings for me with verdant’s shi feng and tevivre(premium xihu) offerings tied for 2nd and jing tea shop shi feng AAA a clear top place for the unbelievable quality of leaf and complexity.
Flavors: Asparagus, Floral, Lima Beans, Sweet
