A lovely green tea from China. Mildly astringent and with a slight roasted note in the first infusion, and pleasantly sweet in the second one. Vegetal throughout.First infusion – 30 min. @ 70 deg. in flask
Second infusion – 2+ hours @ boiling in flask
I don’t do these types of teas and so I have been brewing this for all the guests along the way this holiday season who were anti caffeine. It is crowd pleasing for sure with the hibiscus and minty freshness and the citrusy anise tones hitting the bittersweet buttons to give a most refreshing herbal tea. My only drawback is that it’s too strong if over-brewed, to the point of discarding and starting over so faites attention.
