  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 3 minutes

I am enjoying sampling of these green teas and this is by far the best of the teas that I have sampled. After steeping the tea for a few minutes the tea’s aroma is so green and yummy/veggie like of steam broccoli. Tea’s color is lightly green and when I sip of the tea it is very nice and cleanly refreshing.

I don’t find it to be astringent but good for me kind of tea. So I sip and sip until done and fix myself another cup of the tea using same tea leaves.

2nd Steeping:
Water temperature: 195 Fahrenheit
Time: 2 minutes

Note: With this next steep tea is very mild and again I must say there does not seem to be any astringency. It is a freshly aromatic tea smelling very much of greens and pleasantly sweet aroma. Overall this tea is smooth, cleanly with no after taste. I find that I like this tea best in what I have sampled to date. Thank you to the folks at An International Tea Moment for sending me these samples to enjoy and experience.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
