Lovely green tea. I brewed at the lower recommended temperature tonight and it made a big difference. Not at all bitter. Pretty pale yellow green color. I’m having 3rd steep now and it is still very good.

Opened new bag and had beautiful experience. I was so disappointed with a previous brand, so this was very pleasant. I used my cute Yixing frog on lotus pot and brewed gong fu style. Leaves unfurled beautifully. Lovely sweet finish. I did four steeps but could probably done more.

Flavors: Anise, Flan

Disappointed with this tea. I think it a combination of poor quality and being old. Takes a long tome to steep. Anise overpowering, can’t really taste tea. Leaves don’t unfurl inthe pot. Time to let this one go.

I love this tea with a little milk. I drink in my grandmother’s bone china cup and saucer and feel like I’m going back in time. Fairly strong black tea. Bergamot and anise is there but subtle. One of my favorite.

Sample from Lupicia. It has a wonderful scent, just like wine. Very smooth taste and not too sweet and fruity. I would definitely drink again.

drank Gyokuro Kin by Den's Tea

This is my first purchase of gyokuro, but it is lovely. No bitterness. Grassy, but fresh. My first brewing session was not very successful. For tonight’s brewing I cooled the water wayyyyy down and used a little less tea leaves (4 grams) for about 120 ml of water. I also let the first steeping go longer. Great tea for a Spring evening.

Preparation
145 °F / 62 °C 2 min, 30 sec
