From TeaSource

This green tea is composed of gorgeous, long, leggy, tea leaves that have a scent of freshly husked corn. This green tea from Hunan Province (famous for green tea) steeps up very smooth, with great aroma, slightly sweet, with a hint of almost nutty note in the cup. A wonderful and unique green tea. This green tea makes a wonderful gift for the tea connoisseur.

Tried it again, this time with a freshly cleaned teakettle, basket, and mug. Still smoooooth and creamy. Definitely nutty. It almost tastes like there’s some milk in there…and it has a little note of what might be cinnamon. It’s as rich-tasting as green tea ice cream. How does this work? Regardless, I love it.

I have to add that this baby gives a SOLID three steeps Western-style—I’m about to try the fourth. Also, these leaves are simply beautiful—big, very intact, a lovely shade of green, robust. I want to press them between the pages of a big old book.

Fancy teas make me nervous. And I guess I consider anything that isn’t black or rooibos or a teabag kinda fancy, haha. Got this from my good buddy potatowedges, who thought I would like this even though I’m not a green person. I stared at it for a while, nervous I would kill it with my roommate’s Sunbeam Hotshot water heater. The leaves are so pretty and spindly! And it smells sweet, not grass-like at all! Watching it brew. Still nervous. Leaves aren’t opening as much as I expected. Smell it…uh oh. Vegetal. Stare at the cup of liquid. Yellow, pretty, does not smell like anything. Try a sip…eh. Add some sugar, nommmm. No longer smells like green things. Smells like corn, just like the description. All nutty and toasty. Yay, teaventures!

This is also known as Anji Baicha—a very popular green tea. It’s lightly sweet, not to vegetal—and very, very light. Almost like white tea in that respect. We did like it, and it’s very drinkable, but we didn’t like it as much as the other new green teas we got in. Not destined to be a favorite we’d order again.
