4 spears used for 375 ml.

On the sip there is a note that reminds me strongly of grape flavour. Fruity sweetness. I’m detecting a white tea-type astringency note. Slight buttery tone.

Second infusion at 6 minutes, 300ml. Has more of a plum fruity taste on the sip. Slight hints of smooth (almost creamy) black tea taste. I’m reminded of the wheat-like taste I find in certain tea. Slightly licorice-like sweetness.

These are nice brewed in a glass using only 2 or 3 for a couple minutes (not 6!). There shouldn’t be astringency when brewed with less time. This is a green tea with flavor that reminds me more of a darjeeling (that grape flavor).

Ooh! I need to try my packet of this. How many spears were in your bag? Didn’t count mine.

Butiki used to carry this as their blue nettle tea. Some of you might remember it. Green tea from Ceylon with a very nice flavor. I still have some.

I’m not entirely sure it’s exactly the same thing. Could be, though. This one is listed as an oolong, not a green. I tried a sample from Butiki, but IIRC I didn’t brew it correctly :(
