This delicious and prized Chinese green tea tastes like spring, it tastes like Spring -- full of unami notes, chlorophyll, freshness.
It may not be the best green tea to just "jump into" if you are new to fine green teas, but if you have worked your way up with progressively higher grades of green tea, you will fully enjoy this mug. It is a gourmet green tea that is top-shelf quality and full of sweetness. The mouth-feel is buttery smooth, and there are floral and citrus notes to the aroma. It leaves a clean taste in your mouth.
Using water over 175 degrees will cause the bitter tannins to be released, and essentially ruin this tea. To appreciate this tea, do not oversteep, and do not use too hot of water.
