This organic green tea, grown in the Fujian province of China, is supplied by Grand Tea, an online retailer based in Hong Kong. The dry leaves are varying shades of green, and include white, downy buds. They give off a fresh, fruity scent.

Following Grand Tea’s instructions, I brewed the leaves at 85 °C for one minute. Once brewed, the tea gave off a fruity aroma. The first flavor that hit me was of apricot. There was also a vegetal quality, and a slightly acidic aftertaste, but no bitterness at all. Overall, the tea was sweet, light, and well-balanced.

A second brew, also at one minute, gave off an aroma of marzipan. It was less sweet than the first, with a slight bitterness, but was still well-balanced. Overall, the flavor was more vegetal than the first brew. A third brew at 90 seconds was surprisingly flavorful, with a fresh, grassy taste that reminded me of Silver needle White tea – probably resulting from the presence of downy buds.

This is a reasonably priced, good quality tea that definitely benefits from the addition of buds. I recommend it as a refreshing green tea, with enough complexity to keep it interesting.
