Wow, so much peach in the dry leave and peach-pit in the cup. Lovely pale-green clear liquor and very light in the mouth. Will revisit when deep into the bag, and looking forward to seeing what others with better taste buds can identify.

A good tea, but not for me. Very astringent, lots of seaweed notes. I’ve been back to this a few times but I’ve really settled into the Chinese greens and this is just too astringent for me. Not round or corny or buttery enough. It took me a few tries to ensure it’s not the tea – it’s not.

Have you tried steeping it at really low temperatures, like 158F? I saw this recommendation on the Yunomi website and it helped with another tea.

Had more in the scent than the taste for me. I just couldn’t get a handle on individual flavours except “tea” and “rose”. There’s either complexity I’m missing, or it’s not varied enough for me to find the strands.

It was okay though. I’d drink it again but not buy it again.

Flavors: Rose, Rosehips, Tea

Maybe my new favourite green. I’ll review again after a few sessions, but I like it. It’s conceptually like Dragon Well Long Jing for me, but more of the specific tastes I like. More hay, more butter. And with a thicker, syrupy feel.

Edit: I brought this from an 85 to an 80 because it strikes me differently on different days. Also subsequent steepings fall off quickly. But it’s still a marvellous tea, solidly 80.

Edit: 80 up to 82 after a marvellous four-steep session. That’s now settled. Definitely.

This is the first tea I’ve tried brewing with a more gong-fu-like method. Much more tea, less water, briefer. It’s really unlocked the refreshing flavours for me. Very pleasant. I may need to re-do several reviews brewing in this way.

One of a number of lighter, more refined black teas I’ve bounced off lately. It’s malty and fruity, but delicately so. It’s actually a great tea, but I need something more solid in my black teas.

Someone with a better palate needs to add more comprehensive notes.

Flavors: Jam, Malt

I can’t believe I haven’t already reviewed this! I’ve bought it about three times. It’s a great flavoured or flavour-imparted tea. Slightly sweet, satisfying, rounded. Changes each steeping.

This blend is the first tea I’ve drunk with milk since discovering real tea. I was looking for something to stand in place of the typical English cut-tear-crush teabag tea I would sometimes drink. This blend is just the job.
