Beautiful small leaves brew to a sweet and grassy flavor. A good everyday green tea produced on an island in Zhejiang Province. The farm has been organic for 6 years and the quality of this tea reflects this effort.

Almost to the bottom of another green tea, so getting in a first tasting note for this one. Law of conservation and all that.
The dry leaves smell like hay, or dried grass. It’s a much more appealing smell than it sounds.
After steeping, there’s a lightly nutty fragrance. I am getting no grass, no vegetal scent. The tea is a medium golden color and mostly clear.
How can a tea with so little aroma have so much flavor? Isn’t the sense of taste like 90 percent the sense of smell? I’m surprised, in a good way.
But what does it taste like? That is the hard part. A little nutty, a little vegetal. The nutty flavor is mild, like Brazil nuts. The vegetal flavor is also mild, and not anywhere near the juicy vegetable run off flavor. I’m not sure it’s asparagus. Maybe more like a flavorful lettuce.
It strikes me as the kind of flavor that will grow on me over time.
Flavors: Grass, Hay, Lettuce, Nutty
This one came from my $5 September Steepster Select box. The leaves are thin and wiry and twisty, and their color is a myriad of greens and silvers. Dry scent is a mild and sweet combination of vegetal, grass, and hay scents. I steeped a heaping teaspoon for 2 minutes at 175 degrees.
Once steeped, the liquid smells sweet, creamy, and mildly vegetal. The taste is mild and vegetal, but there’s also a lot of grassiness here as well. It’s almost a bit sharp, which is nice my favorite, however there’s no astringency here. I could do with a little more sweetness. I do enjoy the touch of roasted nut flavor that comes out strongly at the end.
Flavors: Asparagus, Grass, Roasted nuts, Vegetal
Origin: Zhejiang, China
Leaf Appearance: Small little twisted pieces that are light to dried grass green. Smells nutty and a little bit like a sweet vegetable , potato, a sweet walnut.
Method: 4 ounce gaiwan, 1 tsp tea, 185F, short quick infusions
Liquor: Light tint of color, light pearl spring green with scents of sweet veggies

Wet Leaf: Leaves unfurl to be tiny little pretty spring green color and very young young leaves. Very delicate. This is a very nice green tea and has some leaves that look like Anji Bai Cha they are that light green with the veining. Some very tiny and delicate young little tiny tiny buds too. Pretty tea.
