I did the classic tea brewing. 7 minutes in hot water (not boiling). I’d like to but don’t have all the equipment for the traditional yerba maté preparation. Maybe some day….
Leaves are light green.
Color of the tea is surprisingly quite green. Dark shade of it too. Not very saturated. Clear.
There’s no particular smell – just plain herbal tea smell.
No bitterness i read about. At all. It’s a very gentle herbal tea. So far quite yummy too. Didn’t put much leaves in it tho (was careful) and i waited till the water cools down a bit.
Tastes herbal. Gentle. Even a bit sweetish. I like it a lot…
I don’t know if this qualifies as green tea, but if it did (and it tastes most close to it) i’d say its a very good kind of it.
Yay, another yummy tea :D
