I made a cup of this last night brewed according to the package directions- 1 rounded tsp leaves with 2 oz water. I tried to boil the water and then wait for it to cool to the proper temperature. I don’t have a very sensitive thermometer so I don’t know if I brewed it properly or not! It was VERY strong though. I probably killed it. So this morning I brought 1.5 tsp to work with me in a paper filter and brewed it with around 8oz of water from the instant hot water machine in the break room. I really like it this time! Bottom line, this tea is very good but also very finicky! Tastes like a sweeter/brighter version of my favorite sencha :)

Bio

Graphic artist, printmaker, lover of tea.

I love pretty much every type of tea camellia sinensis can produce. I like herbal teas sometimes but I can’t stand rooibos.

Butiki, Verdant, Mandala, TeaVivre and Den’s are my favorite online retailers so far.
