Teasenz specialises in Chinese teas, and I've had both extremely good and bad experiences with them, so I am never quite sure what to expect. The leaves of this tea are beautiful: 2 inches long, twisted dark green spears. I measure out about a teaspoon or so, mostly guesswork since the leaves are too big to fit into a spoon, and brew it in one cup 175° water for three minutes.

The liquor is a light hay-yellow colour that smells vegetal, mostly like cooked artichoke. The flavour is mostly mild vegetal with a slightly bitter backing and a subtle underlying smokiness. The second steep is slightly milder than the first with more subdued flavours, but it's a good follow-up.

Overall, it's a subtle, beautiful green tea. It's everything I want and expect from an affordable green tea. It's definitely the sort of thing I would buy and drink daily.
