Got this nice sample in a swap from Haveteawilltravel. Smelling the dry leaf it exudes the word “green.” The aroma carries over into the taste with notes of green wood, green apple, green grapes, and celery. Basically all things green. It’s also lightly floral and mushroomy. It’s got a light sweetness, slight mineral note, and a thick hui gan. It’s a very mellow and friendly drink with little bitterness or astringency. The sweetness is unique and lingering and reminds me of stevia leaf. I’ve heard that huang pian has lower caffeine, which would make this a great night time drink.

Flavors: Celery, Floral, Green, Green Apple, Green Wood, Mineral, Mushrooms

Tea addict since around 2011.

My favorites are pu’erhs, blacks/reds, and roasted oolongs, but I have a growing interest in good whites, and sometimes enjoy greens.

Currently trying to get an education, working a part time job, expand my ceramics/pottery skills, and trying to make the best of existential crisis.

Other than tea I love the outdoors, ceramics, guitar, and diy/building things.

I started a tea blog in February 2018, though admittedly I haven’t updated it much lately.

When I give a tea a numerical rating it’s simply meant to reflect a balance of how well I enjoyed the tea and how it compares to others of the same style. I don’t follow any universal rating criteria, and my ratings are mainly meant for my own use, to remember what I though of a tea and if I want to repurchase.
