From Rishi Tea

This unique green tea is hand harvested especially for Rishi Tea from Yunnan’s old growth forest tea trees. Emerald Lily has a brisk, fresh flavor that is well balanced with aromatic notes of wildflowers and toasted pine nut. Green tea from Yunnan’s old growth trees contains a higher content of polyphenols and natural tea antioxidants than other green teas.

I scored this a 90-95 on an episode of GTTV, Great seaweed notes upfront,more of a floral back end of it. A pleasant cuppa!

This was a decent tea, with a real juicy pale fruit and floral character. I was surprised, upon inspecting the leaves, that it was such an interesting mix of very broken pieces along with intact, beautiful and fuzzy budsets. Anyway, a nice slightly above average green.
