This classic, wok-fired green tea has a delicate, decidedly sweet flavor and steeps to a lovely, yellow-green color with fresh scent. The taste is clean and has a silken, buttery characteristic which lingers on the taste buds for a pleasant sipping experience. The needle-shaped leaves are large and flattened and are not as grassy or astringent as other green teas. The overall cup is refreshing and soothing and is reputed to help keep the mind stimulated yet clear.
