I just steeped this too strong. I got this as a sample with another order a while back and finally gave it a shot. I steeped enough for about three cups in the volume of two, so it was a bit stronger than my first time steeping this.
The leaves are a deep green, flat and mostly intact (any that weren’t can likely be attributed to my less than careful handling of the sample). The liquor was a greenish yellow, although it would have been a lighter yellow if I’d had the right amount of leaves for the water. I’d also say The Tea Spot’s own description of sweet and herbacious were right on. I have too many other unique, nuanced greens for this to make my favorites list, but it was a great green tea.
