type: green

origin: china

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Fine twisted young leaf that resembles a chun mee style but interspersed with silvery down covered buds. The aroma is quietly floral but gives way to a smokiness, reminiscent of a gunpowder but not nearly as bold. The cup is light, yet smoky with a semi buttery mouthfeel. In the finish a dry white grape note, and lingering smoke. Steep at 180°F for 3 minutes

      A lite fresh not overly smoky tasting green tea. Also good for a second steeping. Not really a fave tho, as not a huge fan of green teas.

      Not nearly as smoky as I expected it to be. Just a middle of the road green tea.

      Eh, not the worst I've tried, but not quite the best

      If you like green tea, you'll enjoy this one. It's not heavy.

      This is a very light and refreshing green tea with a subtle flavor.
