265 Tasting Notes
Not bad if you’re in the mood for a gentle minty green tea. The spearmint stands out from the other flavours, and it also lingers the most. I steeped this for two minutes at 80C this time, but I’ll think I’ll leave it a fraction longer next time and see if I can draw a little more flavour out of it.
Trying this again, still at 55C but steeping for only one minute this time. Well, that’s got rid of the astringency that started to creep in after the extra half a minute, but it’s also lost a lot of the flavour. It’s produced a cup of tea that’s pale and weak instead of delicate and rich. I’m really disappointed in this tea and won’t be buying it again.
