I know I’m not supposed to make tea this way, but it tastes so good when I don’t follow directions. I used 2 tsp with 8 oz of 208 degree water for 3 minutes. Yeah, its green but it tastes nutty and toasty and way much better than the last time I made it. It smells just like it tastes too. I can drink this green tea made this way. I’m thinking my love for Yunnans and Assams is making me jaded. Now I have to try some macha.
