I am in green tea mood lately. The description of this tea says that it has a sweet taste. They weren’t kidding. The taste is very hard to describe. The sweetness is there, It is an ethereal sweetness that you don’t really notice at first but the longer you leave it in your mouth the sweeter it becomes. It never becomes too heavy or even too sweet, at least on the first steep. It is just right.The smell is hard to pin down. It is slightly floral, and I know I have smelled something similar before but what it smells like evades my memory right now.
The liquor is very light green. The tea gives you a sort of calming stress float away sensation, just as it should.
I brewed it for 2 minutes at roughly 175 F, using two heaping tablespoons just as it said to use.
In summary, I am not a green tea expert but this is one of the most elegant green teas I have ever tasted. It is light and airy with an ethereal sweetness to it that only gets better the longer you leave it in your mouth.
