Strange. I had written an entire not on this and it got eaten.
Anyway, there’s some important news. I’ve now written an initial note about all the green teas in my cupboard!
I thought I had another tin. At least, my cupboard said I did. It may still show up, but I’ve looked twice and can’t find it. So I am declaring victory.
What I didn’t expect was this sample. I forgot I had it. It was in the back of a bunch of pu-erh samples. I must have gotten it when I bought a yixing from Yunnan Sourcing.
In any case, it’s a pretty green tea with dark green, curly leaves and some silver tips. In the packet, it smells like hay.
After steeping it is a clear, pale yellow and smells a bit nutty. It also has a vegetal note that is a bit like roasted asparagus.
It’s not a sweet, juicy, vegetal — but it is really delicious. It’s the sort of thing I’d enjoy drinking at work.
Flavors: Asparagus, Hay, Nutty, Roasted
