Well I got that Taiwan green form Norbu. Greg also included some of the 2011 stuff he still has in stock. Nice of him to throw it in.
The 2012 was very pleasant to drink. Fresh, light, a little creamy, a little floral. I'm not real good at tea description. I was also pleased with how the wet leaves looked after they opened up. Certainly not perfect, but I was very pleased with how they looked. I got the sense of a pretty good quality product. I think it will be nice to have as a secondary green tea. A little more expensive then the everyday stronger green that I like. The Taiwan green will be nice to have less often for variety.
I was not impressed with the 2011. Think it is just kind of stale. Not as flavorful as the fresh stuff.
I'm not tea expert, but those were my overall rookie impressions....
