From Yunnan Sourcing

A robust white pekoe varietal green tea from Feng Qing area of Lincang. Picked in early March, this first flush spring tea is aromatic and sweet with an umami vegetal essence.

Leaves are thick and stout and brew up a very thick tea soup that can be infused many times.

A nice lively green tea with sweetness but with some depth to it.

March 2018 Harvest

The first green tea from China that I really enjoyed. The detailed description that
eastkyteaguy left for the 2017 version still applies. I will not go in such detail but just say that it has a great aroma and a really complex taste: floral notes, citrusy spiciness, spinach and honey. It also gives multiple quality infusions (with sweetness becoming more prominent in the later ones), which is always a plus.

Just a very accessible and forgiving (re: temperature, seeping time) tea for an extremely affordable price. I will probably order more.

Update: I had this tea a few more times. While I still like it a lot, the truth is that all of the complex goodness lasts only one steep in a gaiwan. The second steep is already markedly less interesting, and the subsequent ones are simply not enjoyable at all (one-dimensional vegetal bitterness dominates). Had to lower the score accordingly
