100

Breville try out session! And my fav tea to accompany me on a mini Big Bang Theory marathon;) (I can almost imagine the disapproving face of my roommate since I supposedly have a 1250 word paper due tomorrow, but whatever)

So anyway, this is as delicious as ever. Actually, it was even better than last time since this time, it wasn’t overbrewed at all.
The dry tea smells like candy, as usual. The brew is a beautiful light green color and the sweet aroma just envelopes you, in a very very good way.
The vegetal notes are reduced to a minimum, and you can’t really taste it this time round. The sweet, cotton candy-ish, caramelly awesomeness is however enhanced and you can really feel the sweetness, mellow and smooth. But you still get the tea behind all this, so you aren’t overwhelmed by the sweetness of it, nor do you get tired of it since the flavor profile changes slightly as the temp changes and cools.

Upping the rating to 100 because it is now as awesome as I remember it (unlike last time, when I sadly sort of ruined it a little by oversteeping)

yes, this is one awesome tea! although I drink it sparingly as it is sweet and (IMO) not for everyday.
