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, and not bitter when steeped well. I applied hot water at 85C at first. It worked fine, but 80C I would say is optimal.

3 grams of leaves is good for 3 brewing in a glass. I can recommend it to those who like Japanese green tea as well as the Chinese Bi Luo Chun.

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 vegetable broth with strong notes of spinach, nuttiness, and fresh vegetation. There is a faint finish of sweetness like roasted chestnuts, the aroma of this tea certainly has a strong presence, I could sniff it for hours.

The first steeping's taste starts out very vegetal, almost a bitter green taste of kale, spinach, and bok choy, but that very quickly fades to a fruity sweetness. The fruitiness reminds me of very delicate pear nectar with a hint of spicebush. The mouthfeel is great, it is one of those teas that tickles the mouth from the delicate hairs that are present on the leaf, one of my favorite things about drinking fuzzy teas.
