3 Tasting Notes

68

Fairly smooth at a two minute steep time and at 165-185 F. Any longer and it seems to get bitter (to me).

If I drink green tea first in the morning, this has been my “go to” as of late (upping my rating).

This is a solid, everyday tea for me. I use the loose leaf version although when I run out I’ll probably switch to bags for the convenience. I can’t imagine the quality being much different for something like this.

Seems right at a minute thirty, 165 degrees F. It gets very bitter at higher temps over the two minute mark.

Flavor: Grassy and green, smooth at lower temp times.
