I’ve never tried a green tea version of Tie Guan Yin before so this should hopefully be interesting.
Brand: Verdant Tea / Liu Family
Tea: Tie Guan Yin – Green Tea
Tea Varietal: Tie Guan Yin
Vintage: May, 2020
Elevation: 700 Meters

Amount of Tea: 7 Grams
Brewing Vessel: Small Glass Pitcher

The flavor is somewhat reminiscent of Tie Guan Yin tea, but much lighter, and in my opinion, a little disappointing.
Very light, mild green tea flavor, with more bitterness then I was expecting.
Flavor notes: Vegetation, grass, orange blossom honey, and a moderate bitterness.
