Tried this at Blue Bottle’s siphon bar and was quite shocked. It brewed more like a white than a green and the fact that he only steeped it for four minutes (as the label recommends all baristas do) was sort of odd. I guess when ordering tea at a highly coveted coffee siphon, you get what you pay for.

A guide to my ratings:
0-19 – Did not like anything about the tea and would not recommend it. Might go so far as to tell others to avoid.
20-40 – Didn’t like the tea, but would not avoid it.
41-60 – On the fence about the tea. It probably needs more tried and tested tweaking, like more/less sugar, milk, alt sweetener, steepage, temp, or blending.
61-70 – An okay tea. Would drink again, but not a fave and wouldn’t stock it.
71-80 – A good tea. Will probably try again, whereupon a decision will be made whether to stock it or not. Might recommend.
81-90 – A really good tea but not a favorite. Would still recommend and would most likely have it often when it is served.
91-100 – A favorite or perfect tea. Would probably stock it at home and recommend very highly.

Hope this helps.
