Had this tea again last nigt and realized that I didn’t steep it long enough last time. I steeped it for about 4.5 minutes and the flavor came out fuller (with no bitterness) than when I steeped last time for 3 minutes. I also measured the temperature of the water before steeping and it was at around 167F, lower than last time. I think that steeping at a lower water temperature for longer time yielded better taste. I also noticed that it a had a sweet aroma, which must be the flowers. I think I am going to order the rest of Ego’s flowering teas. I’ll make comments as I drink them.
I tried this one as Kacie was giving it a high rating. Ordered it directly from Ego Tea. I’ve had flowering teas from California Tea House before and gave them an average rating as they were a little on the bitter side and were very flat. I actually liked this tea from Ego way more. No bitterness (not until about 8-9 minutes, after which any tea will get bitter anyways) and it had a way fuller green tea taste. It also had a really sweet smell which came of just a little as an aftertaste. I don’t think that these teas are scented, so I am guessing it might be the flowers. I think I’ll try some of the others they offer.

Traditional Japanese Sencha is too pricey, but I do like the vegetal twang on occasion, so I decided to see if I can get the same enjoyment out of China Sencha, that runs a lot cheaper. I decided to give EGO Tea a try. It is different from the Japanese Sencha, but different in a good way. I might just switch to this going forward.
Here’s where I purchased it: http://www.egotea.com/tea/organic/china_sencha.htm
I really liked this flowering tea from EGO. I always keep this or any of their other flowering teas at home for when I have friends over as it’s always a hit. If you plan on sipping for a while, make sure to poor all water out until you are ready for another steep. If you keep the hot water in the pot, the tea gets bitter – it is green tea. I usually resteep one tea bloom 2-3 times.
