This tea is awesome! The leaf is made up of dark forest green curls and tendrils, all chaotically tangled up. These dry leaves give off a fragrant vegetable aroma with a slight spice or pepper undertone. I warmed my kyusu and poured these in. The aroma instantly deepens to a more seaweed and roasted asparagus scent. I washed the leaves briefly and prepared for brewing. The steeped leaves smell amazing! This brew is highly aromatic with nice warm tones of veggies, grass, and steamed greens. The brew is a soft yellow jade color. The taste is superb. The flavor begins with some sweet nectar then it quickly moves into buffalo grass and juicy greens. I note a brief sharp bite that compliments the sweet and vegetal flavors. The aftertaste is a long lasting thick sweetness that lingers in the mouth. I was able to pull three steeping sessions until the brew falls flat. I really enjoyed this, and it has nice little pep to it. This helped me kick a cold and get motivated.

Bio

Young and experienced Tea consumer. I’m continuously learning and developing knowledge about tea. If I have learned anything at all from the world of tea it is that I do not know anything about the world of tea. I enjoy good tea, and I try to acquire the best of the best. I usually brew gongfu but I’ve been known from time to time to resort back to western brewing.

I have an Instagram (haveteawilltravel), and I am proud of my photographs. I use my pictures in my reviews,and I hope that they aid in portraying the beauty of tea and teaware.

Tea Rating System:
I rate my teas based on the category they fall into (Puer, Red, Oolong, Darjeeing, Flushes, Yancha… etc.)
This means that I will rate a Oolong based on how it stands up as a quality Oolong. I try not to compare teas, rather I work to evaluate them on their craftsmanship, harvest, processing, and qi.

I am most strict with Shou and Sheng Puerh, only because of the vast expanse of various experiences, such as; region, vintage, production, processing, etc.
