Steeped this western style a couple of times and found it fairly unremarkable. It tasted a lot better gongfu’d. Smooth and light bodied with notes of tender green beans, vegetable broth, and umami. There’s some marine/seaweed flavor in the background, though not off-putting, that fades after the first couple of steeps. It finishes with a nice peppery aftertaste.
Although I prefer Laoshan and other green teas, this is still a good, approachable Yunnan green tea – just make sure not to overbrew it.
