This is terrific! A great Green! I was very surprised with this one. The leaves are very unique once infused. There are some ‘usual’ looking ones mixed in with more slender spikey looking ones and it makes for a FUN infusion to watch.

It first smelled like a healthy snack cracker (vegetable based) I once tried and liked.
Then it had a little bit more of a buttery smell. A little sweet, too.

The taste is a buttery vegetal taste but different for the other buttery-veggie taste I have enjoyed recently. It ends sweet and makes you crave the next sip!

I really like this one!

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is a really fantastic green – it has a rich, brothy kind of texture to it, and yet, it is so light. It may seem to be a bit contradictory, but try this tea and see what I mean! The sip is savory and then sweet and finishes quite clean.

A very contemplative cup.

Experience buying from Life in a Teacup

Age of leaf: advertised as spring 2011, received early fall 2011, brewed up weeks later.

Dry leaf: Small, tightly curled leaves and buds; smells fresh and vegetal; reminds me somewhat of Verdant Tea’s Early Summer Green Tea.

Brewing guidelines: Standard parameters for my green teas Loose in glass Bodum pot. Stevia added. 1.5 tsp, 1.5 cups water. I used slightly less water after each steeping. Two separate steeping sessions: < first >/< second >:
……….1st: 165/170, 1’
……….2nd: 165/180, 1.5
……….3rd: 180/185, 2’
……….4th: near boiling/< didn’t do >, 3’

Aroma: mildly vegetal.

Color of liquor: light yellow.

Wet leaf: fresh, vegetal smell; whole leaves and buds, a few were shriveled, and there were a number of long, thin, green ‘pieces’ that didn’t look like leaves or stems; they may have been buds, but I couldn’t tell.

Flavor: mild, vegetal, fresh, good.

Value: This green tea is as good as or better than any other green tea I have had in this price range.

Overall: this had a mild but pleasant taste that held up well through three steepings. This is clearly a fresh, mild and pleasantly vegetal tasting green tea. I would be happy to drink this on a regular basis.

This is a good green tea for the price. At first it is somewhat savory, which fades after a couple seconds to an astringent note, that quickly subsides into a more unique flavor that is somewhat food-like; delicately sweet, it almost reminds me of gingerbread. This is a very subtle aftertaste though.

Enjoyed this in two summer sessions today. This is a very clean, bright, fresh green. My tastes in Chinese greens run spinach and vegetable and this has got it, as opposed to more of the roasted, toasted chestnut flavors, which I tend to like less. It is light and the returning flavor is not really there. A solid price for a fresh, lively tea. One of those reasonable daily drinker type of green teas, if you’re a fan of the myriad of Chinese greens that exist.
