For a Chinese green tea, I was surprised at how much I liked this one. It was pretty good.

Flavors: Floral

While the leaves themselves smell of seaweed, the tea itself has a fuller body and tastes more of the earth, with notes of nuts and honey.

Flavors: Honey, Nutty, Seaweed

A decent green tea. I detected notes of banana, similar to a hefeweissen beer, nuts, and artichoke. This tea was much sweeter than I had anticipated, and while not overwhelmingly sweet, it made the tea slightly less pleasant. A well rounded flavor profile, and a good afternoon relaxing tea. There’s nothing too outstanding to make me go out of my way to seek this tea out.

Flavors: Artichoke, Nuts

A very mild, light tea with very little astringent presence. A bracing tea, with a very dry character and only the slightest thought of sweetness in the finish. Very pleasant aroma similar to honey roasted nuts, which led to a bit of disappointment for me when I did not find those same notes echoed in the flavor profile. A prefect tea for a lazy summer day when you don’t want to think about complex flavors and nuanced tastes. 6.5/10, would not seek out again.

Origin: Zhejiang, China
Leaf Appearance: Very small brownish green, twisted leaves with scents of mineral
Method: Western 1 cup size pot with same size infuser, 180F for 2 minutes
Liquor: Light spring green with scents of mineral, raw artichoke
Flavor: This tea is just as described by the Steepster Select card and website. The astringency is not to be feared (as I had when I read this). It really just has notes of artichoke which has some naturally bitter notes but nothing overwhelming. I like young leaf green teas like this, they are sweet and have a tiny touch of balancing bitter. You can see how delicate and tiny the leaves are when they open up after steeping.
There are some raw almond(with the skin) notes to me, not as much baked chestnut. I purposefully ate a raw almond to compare. The tea doesn’t quite get as sweet as chestnut but I can see that note as well in this tea.
Overall, a pretty good everyday green tea for afternoon drinking.

Very nice green tea with a pleasant aroma and a full flavor profile. I really enjoyed the chestnut and green tea flavors which reminded me of Dragonwell teas I’ve had in the past. There was a nice buttery, nutty flavor on the first steep and it mellowed out slightly on successive steeps into a pleasant and lighter cup.
