This was another tea I received as a sample at the World Tea Expo from Sara.

The dry leaves were comprised of 100% unbroken, dark green tea leaves with absolutely no dust. The unbrewed leaves smelled vegetal, while the brewed leaves were more sweet and grassy. They expanded and turned a beautiful forest-green. After a few seconds, I noticed a new floral note which seemed to dominate over the grassy quality.

The brewed tea was completely clear unlike some sencha teas which tend to be murky. The color was bright yellow, and smelled just as the brewed leaves. The first brew was very refreshing and rather grassy- floral notes were only present in the finish. The second brew was more floral, and I noticed a slight milky quality. The third steeping was much the same as the second, only sweeter.

The tea had recurring flavors throughout the multiple steepings, but in different combinations. For the fourth and final brew, I noticed that the scent of the tea was reminiscent of milky oolongs, and was sweet and floral. This brew wasn’t vegetal or grassy at all.

Over all, this was a very pleasant tea, and I’m glad to have been able to sample it. I wrote this review about 7 months ago on paper, and decided it was overdue to be posted.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
