From The Tao of Tea

Made in the Hunnan Province, China.
Made in early spring with true artisan skill of pan-roasting leaves, the Jade Bamboo is grown at an elevation of 1000 meters. The traditional art of pan roasting over low heat helps develop the flavor fully and gives it a good balance toasted aroma. We find it similar to the aroma of bamboo. Sweet, smooth, vegetal taste. Brew at 175F for four minutes, mineral water preferred.

Agreed, really great green tea. It has a very fine aftertaste. I was trying to compare this tea to Tao of Tea’s Rainforest green – I noticed a difference in the aftertaste, the Jade Bamboo takes on a stronger sense of sencha, and the rainforest green becomes less bitter. Otherwise, they are really similar and both great. I like the Rainforest slightly better.

Fantastic taste. Exceptionally smooth even after long steeps hardly gets bitter.

If you’re putting that big order in, I might get some of this one as well!

I didn’t rate this the first time I tried it, but I think I’m ready now.

I tried it the past few days as my take it to work tea, steeping at the full 4 minutes suggested.

Even with the additional steeping time, this isn’t among my favorites. It’s tasty enough, and does have a very interesting bamboo shoot-like flavor and aroma. But it’s not a strong enough flavor for me.

Sometimes a less than amazing flavor is perfect for a work tea, because you aren’t distracted after each sip with the thought of how good it is.

In this case, the distraction is me constantly asking myself whether there’s something else I could have done to make a stronger flavor come through.

Quite honestly, one of the best green teas I’ve ever tried. It tastes like a bamboo forest on a foggy day, really quite extraordinary and experiential.
