I think that I’ve found a good combination of tea quantity, temperature, and steep time for this one. After much experimenting I’ve concluded that my preferred way to drink this is: 2tsps, 2 minutes @ 170º.

At this moment I’m on a second steep of this tea and I did not change anything. The flavor is a bit weaker at this point so my next steep will be at least 3 minutes. I’m increasing my rating on this one by a few points now that I’ve found a preferred way to drink it.

Flavor profile: grassy, hint of asparagus, a subtle hint of citrus, and a tiny bit of smokiness (and a completely different smokiness than something like a Lapsang Souchong for example). Very light body, leaves your mouth feeling clean.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 2 min, 0 sec
