This is my second go at this tea. Actually, it may be the smell that is so vegetably and oolongy for me. Today the taste seems more like squash. Not Brussell sprouts.
I’ve used a 4 oz pot both times I’ve tried this. I wonder if that’s made it more like an oolong. Also I’m not sure how much leaf I should be using. I’ve been using a small clump.
I’ve upped my rating a little. Not such a taste shocker today.
ETA: The wet leaves are stunning, like crushed silk.
