Dark dark green leaves, like blackened steamed spinach. Smooth and earthy tea, like wet leaves, wet oak. Beautiful saffron color, leaves kind of a mushroom wood taste in your mouth. I liked it, but I don’t know that I liked it enough to buy it again.

Really enjoyed this tea! Almond, vegetal aroma; grassy, woody, floral taste. Didn’t taste banana at all. Reminded me of flower stalks. Light-bodied, very delightful experience. Brewed 5 times gongfu style as per the Yezi Tea page suggestion.

An amazing aroma – full of pandan, very sweet. Tastes mellow and sweet with a hint of pandan, but the astringency takes away some of the enjoyment for me. Overall a very nice tea. Ground finely so you really can’t steep more than once, but it’s a very nice cup.
