Another one from the group buy, also in orb form. This tea is very clean and really green tasting for puerh, even more than I would normally note with young, first year tea. Not really my thing, personally, as I don’t drink much green tea, but it does have a bit of puerh herb-y complexity with the sweetening after taste that starts to pop up in later steeps and a tiny bit of astringent citrus that gives it a very bright/golden kind of feel.

The energy is uplifting, but not overpowering. It has quite some endurance, though, as I drank it out over the course of two or three days. Overall, very green, very clean, and very light. Too much so for me.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Floral, Green, Herbs, Sweet, warm grass

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 OZ / 90 ML

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.
