The leaves are a brilliant green color. They are slim and long and delicate. I get a freshness in the pre-brew aroma. It’s slightly sweetly scented in a natural way. I really didn’t want a cup of veggie soup today, so I went low on the temp and slightly longer on the steep time. 160/1.5 min. Superb! It did the trick. I am notorious for incorrectly preparing my green teas, but I love them, so I keep trying. It worked this time. The aroma is now a fresh, leaf-like scent. The taste is very lightly sweet, more floral, but most certainly not overwhelmingly floral. I’m not getting any butter flavor, just nice, clean, delicious flavors. It’s slightly grassy, but that’s what I love in a green tea. No bitterness. This is my green tea.

Bio

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
