It's funny, I'm like the other customers here who grew up knowing tea only as the cold, sweet concoction we drank during summer. That's where it ended. As I to older I started feeling a bit more adventurous and started to want to try different tea, all bagged of course. Even though I started with bagged teas I still fell in love with the Camellia Sinensis plant. My favorite was green at the time (I'd never had more than green, black, and small amounts of white, I'd never tasted a good Oolong) and I tried several different greens offered by the myriad of companies that sell bagged. I found one or two that I liked but for the most part the greens that tasted were either too bland, too bitter, or too 'fishy.' I then ordered a decent Sencha from a known online company and that's when my love affair with loose teas started. I kept ordering that same one until I found the New Mexico Tea Company. I re,ember the first time I walked into the NMTC.. I felt like an eight year old walking into Toys R Us! I started trying greens of all sorts. The Sencha is great and the Gyokuro is my absolute favorite but I'm here for the Mountain High. Ahh, the Mountain High. It's such a great tasting tea for the price. I found my self buying e Sencha and Gyokuro but I wanted a more 'cost effective, everyday tea.' I found it in Mountain High. A teaspoon in 160 degree water produces a light green/golden liquor with a very soft mouth feel and just the perfect amount of tannic-y goodness at the end. It also, since it's not steamed, doesn't have that 'fishy/overly vegetal' taste that put some people off of Sencha and Gyokuro. I would really recommend this to anyone looking for that every day cup of green. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't replace a properly brewed cup of Gyokuro but it's still an amazing green. I just ask you to try this just once and I know you'll love it!!

A teaspoon of these full leaves blooms in hot water and makes a beautiful green brew with an aroma of toasted vegetables and a slight floral perfume. The drink is both toasty and tasty, with just a little hint of flower and some tannin on the finish. I was surprised at how this tea complemented a salad with tortellini with sun dried tomatoes–almost like a good Chianti.

Great flavor,aroma, and color. I found this tea to have a slight sweetness that I really enjoyed.
