drank Pyin Green Tea by Shan Valley
4843 tasting notes


The dry leaf LOOKS like a black tea (or at least a well oxidized Oolong) but it definitely smells like a green tea with its vegetal aroma. The brewed tea is darker than most green teas tend to be.

Although the aroma of the dry leaf led me to think that I’d be drinking a strongly vegetative tea, the vegetal notes are actually quite a bit softer than I expected them to be. I do taste some vegetation here but I taste the other flavors more prominently: Lovely floral notes, notes of fruit and a buttery overtone.

A well-rounded tea with a nice, brothy texture. It’s a very satisfying drink.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
