This tea, which I enjoyed, has been discontinued, which I don't think is a big loss because I preferred both the Chun Mee Dao Ming and Chun Mee Moon Palace from Upton.

Mellow and subdued, with a coolness to the aroma, without being crisp. There's a little smokiness in the aftertaste but less in the initial aroma. This tea is not very bitter at all, and is quite smooth. I prefer the similar Chun Mee Dao Ming, which is more bitter and much more complex, but I think this is a very good tea. It is also very inexpensive, even though it is organic!

I would also recommend ZG18 if you prefer a much smoother tea in the same style.

This tea scalds very easily if you brew it with water that is too hot, and it will yield an undrinkable cup, with a strong acidity, and an unpleasant aroma.
