Taking a slightly different approach with this tea this time, since I didn’t get it quite right the first time I tried it.

The first steeping was pleasant, fairly light, not overwhelmingly grassy. The second was exactly what I’d been hoping for from this tea: richer in both colour and taste than the first, with the flavour leaning more towards seaweed than grass and with none of the bitter edge that occurred the first time I tried out this tea. This time I increased the proportion of leaves to water and decreased the water temperature and steeping time: two teaspoons of leaves per cup, water at 70C and steeped for one minute.
