Please recommend some Chinese green tea

Hi everyone,

Could you recommend some Chinese green tea which is great? I don't like tea with subtle/light flavour. I've saw online shop describing the taste of their green tea as "fruity"/"nutty" but I have never drink any tea which taste like fruit nor nut...

I love Japanese green tea especially the green tasty umami one. I look for flavour when I drink tea.

Thanks. :lol:

A good Dragonwell tea is always nice! Usually a bit nutty and fresh :) Japanese teas don't really compare to chinese, so don't expect to find a Chinese tea what supplies those characteristics

Yes, if you like Japanese green, by all means stick with them. There are any number of maojians, maofengs, longjing-style and more that could give good flavor--make sure they are fresh, and if they are too subtle, just use more leaves! Theoretically, yellow teas are supposed to have more flavor, but despite many attempts, I have never gotten one that categorically outperformed a good green.
