  • First Impressions: First thing you notice with this tea is the leaves, the long flat crisp leaves that have been pressed by a hot wok until absolutely perfect. It shows, even while steeping these leaves grew into beautiful and consistently large leaves. So far this tea has lived up to its name.
  • Aroma: Less potent than other green teas, its a lighter, sweeter aroma is far less intrusive than a Japanese tea for example.
  • Flavors: If the sight and smell of this tea hasn’t convinced you yet the taste most definitely will. Mild aromas that transform into a complex grassy yet sweet nectar. As refreshing as a glass of water and as complex and subtle as your favorite wine or coffee, simply subdued. Making you dig around with your palate for a rewarding and invigorating flavor profile.
