I brewed this tea to accommodate my lunch and my first impression is that it has a very interesting flavor profile. I followed Adagio’s recommendations (1 tsp per cup of water, 180º, 3 minutes) and I’m getting grassy, smoky, vegetal notes along with as one user put it a “tolerable bitterness.” I’m curious to see how it does with a second steeping and the next time I do a first steep of the tea I’m planning to reduce steep time by one minute.

I haven’t been drinking many green teas lately so this tea is kind of becoming a bridge to more green teas that I’ll try in the future. I have good impressions so far but I’d like to see how I can customize this tea enough so that it gets a better rating from me.

Preparation

One variation on the steeping parameters you could try is 1.5tsp steeped in 4oz 160 degree water for a min. If that isn’t a big enough cuppa for you, just double it:)
