Shan Valley First Flush Green Tea 2014

Country of Origin: Mynamar
Leaf Appearance: deep green, somewhat broken
Ingredients: green tea
Steep time: 3 minutes
Water Temperature: 175 degrees
Preparation Method: Teavana Perfect Tea Maker
Liquor: deep gold

Mynamar, also known as Burma, is not widely known for producing tea but they are the second largest country in Southeast Asia. Some of you might remember that I reviewed a selection of +Shanvalley‘s teas last year, including the First Flush Green Tea. The sample I tried previously was a pyramid bag so I was excited to dig into the loose leaf. The taste was deeply vegetal with a pleasant sweetness. I was reminded very much of homemade spinach. The finish had a refreshing zing with hints of citrus. There was also a nice toasted quality that I found very comforting. If you are in need of a good basic green to use for iced tea or making in bulk, this one is a great candidate for that. $3 per ounce is an unbelievably low price.
