Upon opening this tea a sweet aroma with hint of grassiness caught my attention. The very delicate leaves unfurl in the cup only slightly and the resulting liquor is pale green. The taste is almost exactly like the smell of the dry leaves. Very sweet, very little grassiness if any. This reminds me of a sweeter version of Adagio’s Green Pekoe tea although the leaves of this one are much thinner than the Pekoe. Bottom line: if you’re looking for a sweet green tea, this will be perfect for you.
Method: 1 tsp / 8oz water; 165º- 170º; 2-3 minutes.
