Needed a green tea so pulled this one out. Brewed it at a slightly higher temperature than I normally do for green teas (Set the microwave for 2 and a half minutes – usually, I set it to about a minute and 45 seconds). It came out at about 178 degrees when I poured the water over the tea leaves.

I’m still getting the bitter vegetal taste I got last time I had this tea, but this time it was less bitter and more vegetal. Which I find a little odd, since it’s brewed slightly higher than last time (or maybe it’s the same and I’m a little thrown off because of the 5-degree increments on Steepster).

It’s a little like liquid spinach. That may not sound too appealing, but I’m enjoying it a lot. Heh, I ought to find a tea that tastes like liquid tomato (not tomato water – too weak on the tomato flavor).

Flavors: Spinach, Vegetal

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, and drinking different types for about the past 10 years or so, but only recently have I started exploring the different notes from different regions and flavored teas.

I’d say the water here isn’t bad (although a little hard), but I filter it anyway, just in case. I use tap water filtered with a PUR faucet filter in my tea and coffee.
