I love the look of green teas, from the vibrancy of their color before steeping, to the surprising ways in which they unfurl and fill the teapot. This tea really amused me this morning. It’s a beautiful, solid green, and it smells divine. It’s a peach scent, but not too sugary, as peach can sometimes be.
165/2.5 min. I dropped the recommended temp and increased the steep time as I didn’t want to cook it. It worked out well. The tea leaves practically hopped around while steeping as there was so much up and down movement in the pot. (Maybe it should be called Frankenstein Tea… it’s ALIVE!) ;) Anyway, the tea retains that peach fragrance which is so pleasant and calming, not monstrous at all. It’s not bitter. It has a bit of a grassy taste to it, which is perfect. It reminds me of a peach tree in a meadow. There is a hint of something floral in the tea, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s delicate and gentle and compliments this tea. As it cools, the fruitiness increases and I’ll bet that this tea is awesome iced, too.
