I picked up this tea a little while ago, but haven’t gotten around to making it myself at home until this morning. I opened up the bag and got a nose-full (apparently that’s not a word, so I added a hyphen to get rid of that annoying, red, squiggly line) of that grassy aroma that is so characteristic of green teas. Brewed it as directed by the good folks over at Halcyon Tea – steeped for a minute at ~180 degrees (I REALLY need to get me a thermometer or one of those Zojirushi hot pots…) – and it was just as tasty as I recall (I’d tasted it at the shop during previous Friday Night Tastings)! The tea was light yellow/green in appearance and tasted warm, grassy, and vegetal. It had a pleasant mouthfeel; the tea was not astringent and not heavy on the palate.
