For $13NZD for 75g, I’d say this is a pretty average cup of tea.

The colour of the brewed liquid is a pretty standard yellow-green. Not much more to say about it.

The leaves themselves are not particularly uniform: some are broken up into smaller parts, some are soft and smooth while others are rigid and tough. Leaves varied in length from approx. 10mm~20mm, and there were perhaps 2 or 3 leaf-with-bud-attached surprises.

The Aroma is a very crisp, almost sharp grassiness, and I was happy to note that it was reflected well by the taste, which was also a sharp grassiness.

There wasn’t much depth, if any: the flavour lingering on the tongue for only a few seconds.

Overall this was an underwhelming cup of tea, but it was still enjoyable for what it was.

I am currently studying Chinese; previously studied Japanese, and after recently (re)quit(ing) smoking I have rekindled my passion for the finer things in life (like tea). I prefer single origin teas, that haven’t been mixed with other ingredients. Oolong, Pu’er, Green tea and Black teas are the types I’m currently trying to learn about.
