106 tasting notes

Beautiful golden green color on the first steep, with a strong green tea scent. The color grew more yellow as both smell and color became lighter and more refreshing on the second and third steep.

The first cup was refreshing, savoury, and amazingly thick mouthfeel for the clear liquid that was produced. A very grassy, earthy, and quintessentially green tea taste on the first steep which brightened and turned to a light meadow and refreshing summer sunshine taste on the second. Was notably thin on the third steep, but the first two cups were a delight. I would say this had a very classic flavor profile with a remarkably full body and strong matcha taste.

Flavors: Beany, Earth, Grass, Green

Favorite Tea Type: Darker oolong and sheng puerh

Rating Scale:

90-100: Amazing. Will buy and keep on hand all the time if finances and circumstances allow.

80-89: Strong argument for keeping it around all the time, even more than the prospect of trying more new tea. It’s that good.

70-79: Pretty solid. Glad I tried it, several factors that were unique or that I highly enjoyed.

60-69: Nothing that stands out for the most part, but with a quality or two that speaks to me.

50-59: Fairly run of the mill, pleasant but not much more to be said.

40-49: Something here is off putting in an otherwise decent tea.

30-39: There are a few things wrong with this tea. I did not enjoy.

20-29: Disliked this, could maybe see something, some redeeming quality in it others might find worth drinking without spitting back out.

10-19: Begin to question whether any tea is actually, in fact, better than no tea.

0-9: This causes actual food poisoning.
