A simple, mild green (a mao jian?). The description on the can seems pretty accurate – I’d give it a very mild nuttiness, not terribly vegetal – more sweet and green. The tea tin mentions this is “brighter and milder than Gunpowder,” but I wouldn’t use gunpowder as any sort of comparison – there are no ashy or roasted notes (I don’t like gunpowder).
I think it would be great for introducing people to green teas.

I prefer tea. Cha. Te. The stuff from the Camellia Sinensis plant. Pretty much every kind (though I’ve still never found a Shu Pu’er I can handle both the smell and the taste of). Not a huge fan of tisanes, but I really love the word… tisssaaane… it’s a good word. Like gallimaufry or dirigible.

96-100: I end up never drinking this tea because I’m terrified I’ll run out.
90-95: I own so much of this I’ll have it through the apocalypse and share it with everyone I know.
80-89: It’s tasty, but I have so much freakin tea that I may or may not buy it again.
70-79: I bought it, I’ll finish it, it certainly isn’t bad, but I won’t buy it again.
60-69: There’s got to be someone who likes this stuff. It’s intriguing, but so not my cuppa.
00-59: I have some plants that need an acidifying mulch or a piece of fabric that needs to be tea dyed.
