Thumbs up!"It was earthy and slightly tart, giving the impression of, well, a really good quality green tree. I found my second cup, which had developed a few minutes longer, took on a wheat grass flavor. "

mao_feng_closeup.jpgAfter running around all day, I wanted nothing more than to come home and curl up with a cup of good tea. My ten year old son adores green tea and collects dragons so this tea seemed like the perfect combination. Stephen sent me a generous sample - enough for two big pots. However, I accidentally poured the whole sample in to the pot. As the pot was quite damp from rinsing it out, the leaves got wet and I was stuck. Toss the extra leaves or throw caution to the wind and brew the whole shebang? Being the wild woman I am, I kept all of the leaves in the pot, secretly fearing toxic soup. The leaves unfurled in to a glossy green forest that, when I cleaned them out, had the scent of the woods after a rain.

After a short brewing time of maybe only three minutes, we were ready to
go. Casimir requested his tea over ice and declared it a mighty success
with about a teaspoon of sugar. The color was quite beautiful, similar
to the color of tree buds in the spring after a long, cold winter. I
poured my tea at about five minutes and the color had deepened to a rich
amber. I took my tea hot and naked. It was earthy and slightly tart,
giving the impression of, well, a really good quality green tree. I
found my second cup, which had developed a few minutes longer, took on a
wheat grass flavor. I'm fighting tonsilitis and I have to say that this
tea soothed my scratchy throat, too, which was an added bonus!

I liked this tea and would drink it again, although I would definitely
use fewer leaves in the future.

    I drank one cup of this and immediately was charged with a balanced and calm energy. the flavor and smell is mildly vegetal, not at all grassy, and very balanced with a light aftertaste.

    In second and third steepings the high energy charge is less, obviously, but there is still a lot of flavor and a good calm feeling from the theanine.

    At a guess I would imagine this tea is very high in theanine in particular and plenty of caffeine as well. good stuff.
