This is the favourite green tea of a friend of mine, so I’ve been looking forward to trying it for a while.
It makes a yellow brew with a distinctive aroma. It’s light but not as delicate as some of the white teas. The taste is mellow, with some subtle qualities that come out more as you continue to drink, and it’s not at all bitter so long as you get the water temperature right. I was careful to use water well under boiling point – around 60C (140F) – and to steep for not much more than a minute.
The longer I drink this, the more I like it.
