I liked this tea. Both steeps tasted surprisingly similar—grassy, buttery, and a bit nutty. Good tea, but I wouldn’t buy it again. It reminds me of Tazo’s China Green Tips, my favorite Tazo tea (usually I stay away from Tazo). Since I work at Starbucks, I can get CGT for free. But for those who can’t do the same, I’d recommend this over CGT. Again, very good, just not enough to make me want to buy a tin.

Hi, there! I’m Marcy. I’ve enjoyed tea ever since I was a kid, but only recently (within the past few years) have I really gotten into high quality, loose-leaf tea. Now, all my friends know me as a lover of all kinds of teas, and I’m always happy to share. I try to make tea for people whenever I can.

When I’m not making and drinking tea, I’m usually writing, hiking, building with Lego, or spending time with my wife and kids.

I rarely feel satisfied with giving something a numerical rating, so most of my reviews are listed as simply either “recommended” or “not recommended.” I’m OK with giving ratings to amazing tea and terrible tea, but everything in between just doesn’t seem right, so I usually stay away, and hope that my written reviews will be illuminating enough.

Recently I’ve become a huge fan of Japanese green teas, though a good oolong or pu’er is always welcome.
