The appearance of this green tea is dark green. The dry leaves smell amazing. It’s like seaweed.

After brewing I can see that it consists mainly out of small young leaves as well as some one bud one leaf pickings.

This is a pretty strong tea. The flavour reminds me of a biluochun. It’s vegetal, seaweed-like, ...

I tend to like Mao Jian teas a lot, and I still liked this one, but it was my least favorite example of it that I've tried. It was unexpectedly smooth but lacked edge or bite, and I think this bite is one of the things that I most appreciate about this type of tea.

Dry leaf is wiry and curved, very dark green. Qui...

Although I like green tea, this is not one of my favorites. Although it seems to be of good quality, the taste is not for me. There is a strong vegetal flavor as well as a bitterness present throughout that I am not fond of. That being said, the aroma is very pleasant with a strong vegetal smell. It seems to be a good ...

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 30th, 2015

The aroma is delightfully savory, mixing notes of sundried tomato. tomato leaves, spinach, and a bit of sauteed mushrooms. At the finish there was a tiny hint of cut grass and a surprising note of dulse.

The first steep keeps up the savory notes, blending sauteed mushrooms, some mild bok choy, a bit of edamame nutti...

When I snipped open the little pouch this tea came in and gave it a good sniff, the first thing I noticed is how brothy, almost meaty the leaves smell, how intriguing! Once I poured the leaves I planned on steeping into my official sniffing dish, the leaves still retained their hint of broth, but it became more of a ve...

The dry leaf of this tea had the most intensely pleasing aroma of any green tea I have ever encountered.

Upon drinking the brewed tea, it's a little less amazing but still good. There's a lightness and sweetness in this tea that I've only ever encountered in green teas considerably higher in price.

Second infusi...

Jan. 30th, 2013

The dry leaf looks a bit jumbled and broken, and has a strong and pleasing aroma, typical of Chinese green tea. Leaf looks dark when dry, and is slightly broken, but quite light after brewing.

Upon brewing, produces an exceptionally smooth cup. Among the smoothest of green teas I've tried in this price range.

This is the type of green tea I like most: strong, dark, and complex, producing a bold and rather bitter, but very clean and refreshing cup.

The dry leaf was very wiry, and intensely aromatic, with an aroma suggesting sweetness, but with some deeper, darker tones as well, a sort of deep fruitiness.

I found this t...
