Ohh yeah, this is a winner. I did about 4g in my 120ml gaiwan, starting with 10 seconds then, uh, not really paying much attention but more time in the following steeps. There was nice evolution and development through the process! Great aromas and a really cool bright/lime green liquor!
I woke up feeling groggy and a bit sick, and after enjoying 5 or so infusions of this tea, I’m in a far better place! It’s got the typical green tea aroma in that it’s grassy with hints of sweet corn, but it adds a lovely nuttiness alongside a slight, and enjoyable, sourness. It’s not going to blow your mind, but it just about fulfills everything great about green tea. Similar to the Classic Laoshan Black, it has a really nice energy! I feel both energized and soothed—this is the wonderful duality of tea.
I’ve had a few greens, and this is one of the most enjoyable. I really like Longjing, and this provides a nice change from that style while maintaining an interesting experience that Longjing provides.
Highly recommended, another winner from Scott and the Yunnan Sourcing team!

Hi there! I’m Drew from northeastern USA. At 21 years old, I’m slowly aging into a decent raw hu’man. Since first getting into “true tea” in 2016, it has become a staple of my life. I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, but when I drink tea the frequency of both drops dramatically. Tea is a wonderful way to meditate, enjoy the energies of the world, and to become present in the moment.

Generally, I think I’ll try to stick to these rating parameters:

91-100: Absolutely incredible. Best taste and energy from any tea I’ve had. (NB: I feel like I haven’t had enough teas to put any I have had into this category quite yet)

81-90: I need to buy this stuff in bulk, because I’m in love with it. The flavor/energy combination is close to perfect.

71-80: I really enjoyed it, but something was lacking.

61-70: Not bad, but not mind-blowing either. I may not drink this specific varietal again, but I likely want to try other kinds of this tea.

51-60: Meh… I’ve given this tea multiple chances, and it’s not for me. Not offensively bad, and I recognize that some people may like it, but it wasn’t for me.

0-50: Yikes. You should consider not buying this.
