This tea has been sitting in my cupboard for way too long (the package said it was scooped in 2019) and there was enough for one more big mug left. I like the idea of an “everyday” green — something approachable, easy to drink, and difficult to mess up. I do think that this tea fits that bill — it’s an easy-to-drink Chinese tea with strong vegetal notes — think more edamame than seaweed though. It has an underlying nuttiness that, in my opinion, makes it a likeable “everyday” tea. It’s just interesting enough for beginner loose straight tea drinkers, as it’s definitely a step up from any grocery store green bagged tea. However, this would probably lack the complexity that a seasoned straight tea drinker would like in a green tea. I definitely prefer my Dragonwell, but this is very good too.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember — my mom used to have “tea time” with me every afternoon, drinking some Twinings Earl Grey with milk and sugar in my grandmother’s antique tea cups. Before I went to university, I worked at a DAVIDsTEA in my hometown, which solidified the obsession.

I’m in my first year of law school, after completing an undergraduate degree in political science and anthropology. I use she/her pronouns, and I’m vegetarian (not quite vegan — I still drink blends that contain milk-based ingredients). My other hobbies include fragrance, crocheting, journalling, skiing, hiking, and reading sci-fi and fantasy novels.

Apple, peppermint, caramel, vanilla, coconut, jasmine tea, malty black teas, sweet blackberry leaves, guayusa, white tea, peach, strawberry, raspberry leaves, Chinese teas, anything smooth and creamy!!! Highly caffeinated blends have my heart.

Ginger, cinnamon, peppercorns, hibiscus, alcoholic notes, stevia. I prefer teas that don’t contain dairy or artificial flavouring.

85-100: A-range. Excellent and exceptional.
70-84: B-range. Very good.
55-69: C-range. Average.
40-54: D-range. Not good.
0-39: F-range. Strongly dislike.
