White Monkey:

Silver Curls is a spring flush harvested in the deep mountains in eastern Fujian. A nice green tea both for its taste and appearance, it can be used extremely flexibly for various needs. This Tea Hong’s basic grade green tea is often placed as a premium one in many other teashops.

    Nice balanced Chinese green tea

    Silver Curls Spring has an appearance of light green and silver curls. The description states that this is a more mellow green tea with a slightly sweet aftertaste. I think that description is accurate. In many ways this tea reminds me of some other green teas I have had, but a finer quality, and the appearance is nice. It shows the careful work put into making the tea. Like Tianshan April Mist, this is also a quite refreshing tea, but due to its balance and poise, rather than its strength and brightness. The aftertaste is a little soft and sweet. The taste is a little reminiscent of a softer and cooler Longjing. This strikes me as an excellent overall representative of a refined and classic Chinese green tea. On a personal note, it is also the type of tea that I would enjoy on a daily basis.

    Quite Nutty

    It has been said that some green teas take on a nutty flavour profile. This is one of them; when infused at 1g or 2g to 100ml, the resultant liquor takes it on. Peanuts, to be precise as to what it reminds me of.. This, however, may be a personal quirk. If taken on beyond 2g to 100ml, it quickly loses this quality and becomes more vegetial, though never grassy. In either case, this is a great tea for every-day use. A good amount at a good price: brew a bunch for your friends!
