Dry leaf; A complex grassy aroma. Color of leaf and stem is a beautiful grassy green.

1st Brew: 2 teaspoons tea leaf for 5 oz of water at 175, steeping 1-2 minutes. I love the complexity and depth of this tea. The brew is a beautiful green color. This tea comes in a Select & Premium version. I really look forward to trying the Premium next.

Wow, this tea is all of a sudden very bitter! What a let down, as this was a nice tea in the last package. Seems to have inconsistencies between batches.

Bio

I am an Architect, Planner, Educator by profession… 

My immersion into the rich world of tea began with brewing Kombucha which uses camilla sinensis tea. A conversation of the health benefits of green tea versus black lead me to look deeper. Since I can remember, I have been an advocate of alternative and naturopathic health and so am drawn to loose green teas from Japan at the moment because of their high catechin content and low oxidation. My love of tea has managed to engage and inspire me to know more about farming, geology, processing, chemistry, biology, history, economics, artisanal tea ware, trade routes and of course the endless subtleties of aroma and taste.
