 (10 reviews)

type: green

origin: china

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

The large twisted "yellow tea" leaves brew to a lovely golden yellow color. It has soft, airy notes and a dry, crisp, fruity character reminiscent of a well-made tippy Darjeeling, but a bit more mellow. Lingering floral notes whisper in the finish. Steep at 180°F for 2-3 minutes

      This is a very lovely green tea. I steeped this tea for less time than recommended (1.5 minutes at 180F) as I think 2-3 minutes is way too long for green tea unless you plan to make bitter leaf juice.

      After steeping, this tea had a very mild leafy flavor without any bitterness. I enjoyed it so much I went in for a second steep (1 minute at 180F) and it was just as pleasant as the first cup.

      Smooth and not at all astringent. This would pair well with a number of foods and treats. This has a relatively light, fresh taste that I'm struggling to describe.

      Brewed at 180F for 2min

      This tea is one of the least grassy greens I've had in a while but the bitterness is quite strong. I'm not saying I hated it but the aforementioned bitterness makes it harder to love than to like. It's sweet and floral from the get go and only gets moreso on subsequent steeps with the bitterness getting less and less pronounced.

      Brews up to a nice gold color. Not a lot of aroma, but very flavorful. Tastes of nice green tea without harshness or grassiness. Distinct white grape flavor, with sweetness, but finishes very dry with some astringency. Refreshing.

      I finally found a plain green tea that I like. It was very soft and almost sweet tasting and cleansing to the palette. Not grassy at all.

      Smooth, mellow, and slightly grassy, this tea takes well to multiple infusions and lingers on the tongue after drinking

      I agree, this tastes really nice with a bit of honey!
