1st steep: 174F for minute and a half. When I say that this tea is creamy, I want you to understand that it’s extremely decadent like drinkng heavy whipping cream. Even the mouth-feel is exceptionally thick and smooth, covering every part of my mouth with the creaminess.
It is delicately vegetal. I would call it asparagus, but I see how people could call it soy beans. In the scent, more than the taste I’m picking up florals- sweet and delicate. I’m so glad I chose this for languishing Sunday morning.
As it cools the greens get darker like spinach and I’m pickng up hints of minerals.
2nd Steep : 165F for a minute and a half. The green tea flavor is stronger in this steep, butt thankfully not fishy. Still creamy, but less so. The florals seem to have gotten stronger as well, reminding me of the scents of spring. The mineral aspects are also a little stronger. Mmmm, fresh dirt! :-D If I slurp this tea it gives the impression that I’m drinkng a freshly mixed matcha latte.
3rd Steep: 161F for 2 minutes. The florals have definitely come into their own on this steep. I’m picking up faint citrus notes now. Back to asparagus, not spinach. The creaminess seems to go hand in hand with the dirt now, which is an interesting taste.
