Water: 8oz at 175 degrees

Leaves: Tiny deep green strands

Steep: 1m & 3s,6s,9s,12s,15s,18s

Aroma: Grassy

Color: Greenish yellow changes w/more infusions

Taste: This is my first Verdant Tea I did their 5 teas for 5$ special. I tend to favor green teas more so i choose this one to start with.Right away what stood out was the aroma very nice something you wouldn’t mind smelling again.I brewed this tea using a couple of different methods both Western and Gongfu.I noticed that with the Gongfu method you get many more infusions.With both methods I noticed a hint of bitterness when drinking.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 0 sec

For gongfu 3,3,3,6,9,12 is recommended and maybe the bitterness might have been less.

Bio

I’m a student majoring in Psychology. I really got into tea early last year (2013). I’m happy I stumbled upon Steepster because I’ve been able to learn soo much more! Before I drank my tea from tea bags never really venturing out to try loose tea.

I’m apart of Teavivre Free tasting activity,I joined after making my first purchase with them earlier this year.
Thank you Angel & Teavivre
