This tea has great flavor with a smooth, nutty body and lingering aftertaste. It balances between sweet-vegetal and toasty-nutty. This tea is fairly complex, although for the price point I think there are better teas available from TeaVivre. This is a great tea, but it does not stand out to me.
Another sample - thank you, Teavivre! Always happy to try any great new Teavivre offering! The big leaves here are almost impossible to measure with a teaspoon (which is why Teavivre's instructions are usually by tablespoon, but they still suggest a LOT of tablespoons - 3-4 tablespoons for 17 ounces or 8 grams for this one.) I used half a sample pouch which ended up filling my brew basket halfway anyway. The leaves are connected in a V shape (one bud with one or two leaves). The scent of the dry leaves is delicious - nutty and strong. Once brewed, the leaf color is VERY bright green though the liquor color of the tea itself is very pale. No worries - there is a lot of complex flavor here: nutty, vegetal like sweet corn and something green with hints of fruit. The second steep is completely different from the first - mildly vegetal but fruity at the same time: like cucumber, melon, and another fruit or vegetable I can't quite name. Very fresh and clean tasting. It's very delicious! Another fantastic and unique tea. I think Teavivre has tea magic! I would have went for a third steep but it was very late, had to sleep. Steep #1 // half sample pouch for 11 ounce mug (about 3.5 grams) // 30 minutes after boiling // 1 1/2 min steep Steep #2 // 30 minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute steep Harvest: April, 2015
I Love Spring Tea!!! If you have yet to experience fresh spring tea, you must try it! I opened this generous sample to reveal a giant amount of leaves. The dry leaf consists of long glossy ivy green strands. The long vibrant tendrils are decorated with small downy hairs. They have a deep vegetal and olive oil scent with a slight floral undertone. I placed them inside my warm kyusu and let them sit for a little bit. I returned to the kyusu and lifted the lid to be greeted with a great spring scent. My brewing vessel wafted fresh greens into my tea room. I brew fresh tea very lightly; I use cool water (170F). The colour of the liquor was a pale iridescent jade. I gave this gem a taste, and the flavor was fantastic. The initial sip was of butter and watercress covered with a deep vegetal tone. The brew grew sweeter after each steeping. The third steep yielded a slightly darker liquor and a sweet floral flavor. I was able to get three steeping out of this fantastic leaf. This tea session was awesome!
Brewed in a gongfu glass tea pot. Steeping times: 1 minute, 1 minute and 30 seconds, 2 minutes, 5 minutes. It’s been a while since I’ve last seen such gorgeous leaves. Shaped like silver needles, they are mostly moss-green, with some having enough soft hairs to look white-ish. Their sizes range from just an inch to an inch and a half. The dry and wet leaf bursts with a buttery, zucchini aroma. So strong, I sneezed. After the second infusion, the wet leaf gives boiled asparagus. When steeping for the first time in the glass pot, the leaves look like those from an aquatic plant. That’s not tea, that’s a living creature! One leaf and a bud, two leaves and a bud, two leaves. Vivid green. The liquor is consistently clear – not cloudy, and also almost having no color, a very, very pale green. The first infusion is creamy, having vegetal and mineral notes, and a almond aftertaste. The second infusion goes away from vegetables and we have sugar snap peas. Sweet, sweet, sweet, very sweet – yellow warblers agree! I feel calmed yet rejuvenated. After this point, the intensity of the flavors decreases and becomes more gentle. Still full-bodied and flavorful, the third infusion is also sweet, though in a farmer’s market ear of corn sort of way. And in the last infusion, I taste beans. This was a wonderful experience! I enjoyed this tea through and through.
For those people who say they don't like green tea because they think it's too bitter... Try this kind! This really has got to be one of the most mellow green teas I ever tasted! And it also has one of the best fragrances I ever smelled... Reminding me of a meadow fields.
I review again this tea, because my second buy was a different harvest (April) with a normal increase of price because it's more precius tea. The leaves are really beautiful (one bud and two leaves) but I personally liked more the May tian mu qing ding version, because it's more strong with a chestnuts flavour, a little bit similar to long jing. This early harvest it's more delicate and I suggest to follow the brewing instrunction and using really hot water 85-90°C. 4 gr, 100 ml of water. 1° 25s 2° 35s 3°45s 4°60s. The results is delicate and really vegetal cup. I dont like it with standard temperature for grean tea( under 80°C).
I did steep it at 70C for about 2.5 mins as I always do the first steeping of green teas. The first sip made me want more which is a good sign. No hint of bitterness - smooth, sweet and lovely. It is definitely on my wishlist. I'll write up a longer review for my site coming up in not too long.
Needle like deep/olive green leaves. One bud with one or two leaves. Aroma is really fresh, crispy and oily, my favourite kind. There is hint of butter and nuts reminds me of longjing. 1dl gaiwan and 3g of tea, brewing guide says water should be 90C for gaiwan, quite hot but lets try. Pale green liquid with fresh, full and grassy aroma, leaves turned into yellowish color from deep green. They also start reminding wet longjing, maybe this is longjings long lost cousin. Buttery and fragant. Tea tastes mild, flavour disappears quite quickly from tongue, it doesn't matter though. It’s mellow, mildly grassy and sweet like other chinese greens. Nuttiness and butter, slightly floral too, not too much. It gave 5 steeps as promised, I tried 6th but it had no more flavour. It reminds me a lot from longjing, just milder but this tea has still its own signature. “It is suitable for organic tea lovers as well as clean green tea lovers.” Yup, it keeps it promise. (Also organic is plus as always.)
Nice aroma of buttered veggies. The taste matches the aroma with a sweet buttery flavor like sauteed green veggies and a hint of grassiness at the end.
One of my favourite green teas; the taste has a little bit a chestnut note that reminds me the long jing and the infusion is sweet.
