I haven’t developed the palate or vocabulary to describe green teas, so I’ll defer to others’ descriptions here. The leaves definitely smell like hay (in a nice nature way, not in a way that conjures up images of horses and petting zoos). I keep wondering if I’ve under steeped because the color is so light, almost like white tea, and the flavor is slightly stronger than water. But I steeped for the recommended 6 minutes and I think I even used more leaves than recommended. So…hmmm…I’m undecided on this. I think I like it, but its not anything I’m going to crave in the future.

Hrm. Only thing I can think of is to try a lower temperature? I know that I like to brew this at the lower end of the temperature scale, maybe a little closer to 170? It is definitely a light tea, but it hasn’t been flavorLESS to me, if that makes sense.

Anyhow, I hope it gets better for you but maybe it’s just not your bag. That’s fine, too!

Good suggestion. I don’t much attention to temperature since I just wait ‘til my electric kettle whistles. I’ll play around with that.
