I was sent this tea as a prize along with a new Libre mug so I’m having a good time trying both out.
The packets are cool. It’s a nice format; the package comes with 15 little foil packets of 3 grams each which will be convenient to take to work, etc. However, that comes out to only 45g of tea for $18. So, while these are convenient and pretty I don’t think I would find it worth buying for that price.
The dry leaves smell kind of like fresh-cut grass to me, but I’m thinking that might be what I get from fresh, straight green tea. The infusion after two minutes is a satisfying golden colour.
My first few sips, I’m not getting a lot of flavour but I just ate a piece of dark chocolate which is probably interfering. I think I’ll also steep it longer next time. As I go on, I get more of a feel for it. It’s a very tasty, if very light, green tea. This will be nice to have on hand when I want something simpler than my array of flavoured teas.
