This is a lovely green tea made from the fuzzy young tips of the tea plant. I always get my fingers all fuzzy when I reach in the bag to add the leaves to my tea pot. Tea fuzz! somehow cute and tasty!
anywho, the tea is light, vegetal and smooth. There’s some grassy and floral notes. I love it cold brewed. Cold brewing eliminates the chance of overbrewing and producing a bitter drink. Put the leaves in a pitcher of water in the fridge overnight. Great for summer!
It kinda reminds me a bit of matcha as well. This is probably my favorite green tea in terms of quality and flavor.
ah SpecialTeas, I will always mourn your passing. :(
