The color of the liquid is a pale gold and taste magnificent. The tea is sweet from start to finish with no real aftertaste. As with all sweet green teas, it reminded me of the artesian well a couple of miles from where I grew up in north central Oklahoma. Lots of mineral taste, flowery, sweet and very refreshing. This is a much better tea than the Huangshan Ye Tea I tasted yesterday. Believe I will have this tea for the rest of July. Makes a nice morning tea!

I never drink green tea in the afternoon as it bothers my stomach, forcing me to take Zantac before I go to bed. Oolong tea or Puerh tea is what I drink in the afternoon. Absolutely no problems with the stomach and these teas.
Overall, this tea is a good little green tea, great for drinking at around noon. Been doing it most of 2012 and will do so for a few more months.

A clay tea pot so old, yet picturesque
Sits empty on the corner of my desk
Surrounded by cups in a porcelain bowl
Awaiting the water now in my control
Boiled perfectly to the exact right degree
Ready to be poured on waiting green tea

I informed Saeed he must return to Iran at the proper time and bring us all a kilo of this Iranian tea.

The green of spring in the new picked tea
Flushes with joy under the shade of the tree
My friends gather round in gladness gleam
As the tea flows endless like a rippling stream
With mingled memories of happiness, I see
The joys of friendship now sheltering me
This meeting occurs each Saturday at noon
We do not stay silent in this weekly commune

Additionally, I found some unusual tea in Xian, the local Xiyang Mao Jian tea and some Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong Hong Cha from Fujian that the dealer in Xian recommended. In addition, I had picked up some local Bi Lo Chuan green tea during our stay in LangZhong, Sichuan. Before we left Chengdu, we also made a visit to the Tea City and got some black tea bricks to take back with us. For not being a true tea trip, I think we did OK. Will be tasting these teas as soon as I finish our travel journal for our Travellerspoint travel blog.
