An interesting sounding green tea, mainly because it is a rare tea from South Korea.  The dry leaf has a mix of sizes and the aroma of some kind of fresh vegetable.   The brew is BRIGHT neon green but cloudy- cloudy with all those nutrients, I would imagine.   The flavor is almost like, blindfolded, I would guess that it is a cup of matcha and that surely doesn’t usually happen with all the green teas I taste, or really any of them that aren’t specifically matcha.  So if you want the flavor of matcha, without actually drinking a cup of matcha, here you go.  Otherwise, there is a hint of beans yet something fruity hiding in there. But mostly it tastes like matcha.   Very fresh and lovely on a day when I’m physically feeling cruddy.  Quite good – bright in color and flavor and reinvigorating. Better than I expected!

Also, I bought this in 11/2019 so it is holding up fairly well! I really need to enjoy this while it’s fresher.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
