Review of Jade Cloud (aka Green Jade)

SuperbExcellentOutstanding

The aroma is very complex, with some grassy tones and some sharpness. Simultaneously clean and rich tasting. In my opinion, this tea combines the clean, sharp qualities of a good Japanese Sencha, without the fishy quality, and with the more rich and warm characteristics of some of the better Chinese green teas.

The flavor is quite sharp and bitter, and there is a bit of sourness, but the bitterness is mitigated by a sweetness in the aroma and aftertaste.

This tea can stand up very well to being brewed at different strengths. I find even a smaller amount of the leaves are good for multiple infusions: I usually make 3 cups out of the same leaves. The later cups are less bitter but retain much of the richness and complexity.

This tea is priced very reasonably, especially for such an outstanding tea.
