Taster’s Review:

This is a fantastic green tea, one that I’d recommend to someone who is just starting out with green tea because it is not too overly grassy tasting (which can be somewhat off-putting to someone who is new green tea).  It is pleasant and mild, and yet so rich in flavor.

The sip begins with a pleasant savory flavor that tastes vaguely of stewed vegetables.  It is a vegetative taste, but, it is quite unlike the vegetative flavor that I often encounter with green tea.  This is a unique kind of flavor that is quite rich … like vegetable broth.  The texture of the tea further emphasizes the brothy quality of this tea.

Quickly the sip transitions to a sweeter flavor:  a honey-esque sweetness where I can almost taste the floral nectar.  It doesn’t have a strong and distinct floral taste, however, there are hints of floral notes that seem to dance around in the background, enticing me to take another sip so that I might pinpoint exactly what I taste.  Sweet and incredibly pleasant.  There is also a hint of spicy taste, similar to fresh ginger that lies beneath the surface, and peeks out every now and again to keep me intrigued.

A wonderfully contemplative tea, this Yellow Mountain Cloud!
