From Shang Tea

Note: This tea is 100% Organic

Like sunlight sparkling through leaves, refreshing bright clear green cup with strong flavor and crisp finish. This tea was grown in the misty billows of a 2700ft mountaintop.

The very small and tender leaves create a sweet and very “green” flavor. Compared to other green teas, Our High Mountain Green Tea is slightly sweeter and milder.

Backlog. I need to be quick with these backlog notes because my time is severely limited. I am supposed to prepare for work in… 2 minutes ago :P And tomorrow I’ll be gone (away from the Internet at least, for almost 2 weeks). Anyway, here’s my quick thoughts about this tea that I jotted down on a piece of paper when I was having it:

- creamy, buttery, sweet
- delicious!
- has everything I love about Chinese green teas (at least the buttery type)
- it’s more on the honey-like greens than vegetal-greens
- smells divine!
- the dry leaf looks beautiful, wiry and downy, kind of like white tea except greener (duh!)
- I will definitely consider buying 2 oz. of this when I am ordering the Tangerine Blossom Red and Honeysuckle White!

Shang Tea, hell yeah! Great job.

Definitely not a grassy, but a fuller vegetal type flavor that’s more akin to spinach or another dark green veggie. It has the same brothy, smooth heft that is most common in Dragonwell, though it lacks any nutty notes, and it more quenching and bright.

This has kind of an understated elegance to it. It doesn’t seem complicated and is really easy and comforting to drink, and would work well when the focus on something else, but if you take the time and really focus on the cup, other green and buttery levels seems to emerge.

Thanks a lot for this one Eva!

It’s 70F today, gotta get something spring-y in before tomorrow’s supposed winter storm! A nice mellow weekend spent mostly indoors scheming and dreaming for spring break travels in a week…

Sweeter than most greens, and brothier, with a silky heft that makes it feel like some sort of magical healing elixir, an ouchless soup when you’re feeling funky to help you get better. Satisfying. And like always, resteeps like a dream. I have yet to be disappointed by any of the stuff I’ve tried from Shang, and if this keeps up they’re going to become one of my very favorite purveyors of whites and greens. Yum!

I was testing 3 Shang tea as well. All are exceptional. Didn’t have time to put them on Steepster. Now I write down on post it to not forget. I really liked Loose Aged White Tea. I’ll review them later, weekend is crazy. So jealous about 70F We had 24F and expecting another snow storm. It’s so not Brooklyn weather:(

Beautiful tea very much similar to Verdant’s Laoshan Green. Needs to be brewed properly or it quickly turns bitter. Will write more later.
