good or fresh tea has a green luster in a tight shape, but poor tea is loose and dull. the leaves should be dry enough to make a rustling noise in the palm.


the fragrance of tea should be pure without a charred taste or acid smell. good tea, especially fresh tea, has a natural aroma like orchid or jasmine while poor tea smells stale.


you can taste the leaves by chewing them carefully. good tea leaves have a fresh mellowness. you can also infuse some tea to see if the leaves extend smoothly and sink slowly to the bottom. good tea liquor is emerald green or golden. it has a tint of bitterness with a lasting sweet aftertaste. stale tea liquor is malodorous and dark brown.

the infused tea leaves should be even without impurity.

after you purchase good tea, keep it in a dry cool place, avoiding direct sunshine. an airtight container is a good choice. avoid putting teas of different aromas too close.
