Years ago, I interviewed a Yale researcher who had done some studies regarding green tea and cancer prevention and treatment. At the time, I didn't much care for green tea and told him so. He told me to drink it anyway because it was good for me. I've never forgotten his advice, so I was only too happy to accept some new green tea samples from Teavivre recently. The first one I tried was this Premium Huang Shan Mao Feng Green Tea. The dry leaf had a slightly floral fragrance.
Lu Shan Yun Wu Green Tea. The dry leaf looked like miniature curls and smelled almost but not quite musky, and when I steeped the tea, I thought it smelled like buttered popcorn!
