Mellow Monk’s is a really great company, they are very attentive and are now giving part of their profits to help those in need for Japan. This is an after lunch tea for me. I make it a little on the strong side and it is buttery and almost syrupy. I steep it for 2 min. 30 seconds in about 170 degree temp. After I steep it I pour it in a travel cup and keep it on my desk and sip it. I would say it has a lilting flavor, nice clean veggie aroma and a sweetness that makes me pick my head up and enjoy.

Preparation

Bio

I like a wide variety of teas and drink different types on a daily basis. I have many teapots I need to feed and to feel. Tea is tactile as well as aromatic. I think I drink matcha just to wrap my hands around a beautiful studio pottery cup.
