Tongyu Mountain Green

No. 536, a Chinese Green, bought from Special Teas a bit too long ago.

Brewed: 170 +/- 10 degrees (cool) for approximately three minutes using my ingenuiTEA "pot". Seems very mellow and accommodating, no bitter tones, no edgy exactly right temp and timing.
Liquor Scent: Nutty, cut grass green tones, very faint fruit notes.
Liquor Color: Gold green, fairly deep for a green.
Leaf Scent: Big wine and fruit, almost like fermented lychee
Taste: Pleasantly sweet with unremarkable green characteristics and the mellow depth of a good, high altitude tea.
Appearance: Dark, long leaf, rolled along the stem. I would not call them "silver tips".
I'd drink it again, the easy temperament is nice for a green. A 7 on a scale of 10.
