I got a small amount of this tea from a teafriend with whom I swapped. The leaves are spindly and pretty long. Perhaps in part due to their age, I didn’t pick up much aroma from the dried leaves.
The tea was vegetal in flavor for the most part, reminding me most of sugar snap peas. Despite the fact it was definitely not a fresh green, the finish was crisp and refreshing, trending towards grassy as the session progressed. This tea did not get astringent or bitter when oversteeped.
I was pretty impressed with how this tea was, considering it’s a 3.5 year old green tea.
