The dry leaf of this tea doesn’t do much for me, but then again, it’s been sitting in a tin with a bunch of other samples. Thanks, by the way, to the tea friend who sent me this to try!

The wet leaf…I’m going to just stop smelling the wet leaf from now on, since it doesn’t really have much to do with the flavors of the tea. It kind of smells like Vienna sausages and flowers, one of the more odd combinations I have come across.

But the brew is where it’s at! It’s very thick and buttery, as described before. As you probably know by now, I never really get fruit from a tea unless it’s the dominant flavor. So I’m not getting the fruit that daylon mentioned. I’m getting butter and a mid-level floral of some kind that reminds me a bit of duck shit oolong. I’m also getting a bit of astringency.

My favorite part is the spice out the nose…nutmeg? Cinnamon? Something a little Christmasy that reminds me of a Taiwanese oolong. So is this an oolong green?

LP is my dealer for this stuff, and most of you on Steepster already know this. Anyway.

Pretty much what Liquid Proust wrote and what I had in the comment: how I want my green teas to taste like. It is very similar to a Bi Lo Chun, but has a crisp fruity quality in the aftertaste as it cools down. The fruity quality is incredibly light and very hard to notice, but it’s almost like a wisp of lemon or even pineapple. The dry leaf alone smells like a pineapple husk.

Like J-TEa and Liquid Proust describes it, this is a green tea with the creamy and buttery qualities of an oolong. As it cooled down, I could have sworn I got a strong osmanthus note in the background-so there was a few florals at least for me. Mainly, the tea is a fundamental, but a bit more complex, vegetal green that I would get a lot more of if it weren’t for the price. It might be done western, but I prefer Gong Fu in short steeps of 5-10 seconds starting at 190 F.

Deep and buttery. This is the type of green tea that I would assign a solid ‘A’ to

It’s as thick as a buttery oolong gets while having that crisp green taste to it from the head to the body, while that tail is much different. This is a green tea to call a treat :)

and to think I gave away 2/3 of what I had… now I want it back!

Thank heavens I only had a sample then. I totally see why you want it back. This is how I think greens should be.
