This is a sample I received from tperez in our recent tea/teaware swap, thanks Thomas!

The smell is very sweet and woody, I like it a lot. It’s also very flavourful tea that reminds me of Laoshan greens. It is sweet and crisp with a decent umami. Apart from tasting like a vegetable broth, the soft and thick texture also is very broth-like. In fact the mouthfeel is probably the most memorable about this tea. Both the aromas and the flavours are better in Laoshan green teas (say the ones sold by YS). I also like the somewhat sour and light aftertaste.

Flavors: Broth, Pleasantly Sour, Sweet, Thick, Umami, Vegetable Broth, Wood

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 0 min, 45 sec 5 g 4 OZ / 130 ML

Bio

Currently, I am a PhD student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario. Apart from teas and mathematics, I enjoy sports and traveling, as well as music of all kinds.

I have been a fan of green tea for a while and only recently (in 2017) started exploring other kinds of tea in greater depth. I rarely drink blends or white tea and avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied. The one thing that I am currently missing in my collection are teas from India, in particular some Darjeelings.
