The story of this tea is pretty awesome-it’s a miracle out of a delayed season due to the weird global weather, and it’s one of the cheaper offerings in larger quantities.
Unfortunately, I’m going to be more brutal than usual in this review. Trying it out, I was not impressed. Their notes are jasmine and wood essence, which is not a good sign. I also need to keep in mind this is a soft stem tea, and not a Qin Xin. I followed their instructions and personally got a mediocre tea that was flat. I got some jasmine qualities, but it mostly tasted like spinach and wood. I tried lightening up the grammage and steep time, and that gave me a little bit more jasmine, but the tea was still bland.
I feel bad for being this critical. This company does have better teas though.
