Very suitable as an everyday green tea. Not one you have to stash away for a special occasion. Go ahead and indulge. My humans do. http://is.gd/dR4gz
This is my mainstay tea. I make a thermos of it every day. Sometimes come home at lunch and do a second steep on the leaves with good results (slightly cooler water on second steep – around 170).
Robust, nice astringency. Smokiness without being overpowering.
This is another tea-in-the-work-kitchen experiment. At least it lives up to expectation. A good solid gunpowder! Slightly smoky. I think I brewed it a little on the hot side, I generally like my greens done with water that’s not quite so hot, but being fussy about water temperature at work is fussier than I usually feel like dealing with. It survived the hot-hot water so hoorah!
This is nice so long as you don’t use too much – 1/2 a teaspoon per cup is plenty – the quantity of leaf seems to be more of an issue than the steeping time; I let this go for up to about 20 minutes as I couldn’t finish it all in one go and it was still pleasant, not astringent. Nice smoky smell but not overpowering like a Lapsang Souchong. I added some fresh mint to the teapot too for a Moroccan-y experience.
Brewed strong on purpose; drinking medicinally to chase off a bad case of cruds. Like drinking a healthy serving of vegetables.
I’m amazed at the longevity of this tea—-I’ve had my box for longer than I can recall, and it brews up just fine. Usually gets dragged out for antioxidant purposes when I suspect somebody’s exposed me to a cold or flu bug. In the summer, I brew with home-grown spearmint and ice it down.
Haven’t had this in awhile, so this is off of memory.
Very strong for a green tea, slightly earthy. Doesn’t seem to be very sensitive to water temperature; I’ve had it with water off the boil and didn’t notice the sourness you would find when you overheat most greens. It’s a great everyday tea: cheap, ubiquitous, and forgiving.
My @work tea at the monent….
Found this by total fluke at the grocery store near I work. Yummy!
A tea with a lot of sediment, needs a good strain. Nice smokey aftertaste
