I like the green tea I have at the sushi bar and had tried to describe it or ask for something like it at the tea shop before I knew what I know now about tea. I gave that up a long time ago after being sold matcha and kukicha, and neither one was “on.” I bought this at the asian grocery store on a whim, having moved on from searching for “sushi bar tea.”

I steeped this bag for 3 minutes at 170F. The color was light and yellow green, as it should be for “sushi bar tea.” The taste had some vegetal green and some green tea nuttiness (not roasted rice nuttiness). It was not quite what I taste at the sushi bar, but close. Not at all unpleasant, but not very interesting. I will keep some of these in my desk for a simple afternoon green tea mug.

I need coffee; I love tea.

I have been learning about tea since I was a teenager, but joining Steepster has accelerated my education.

I gave up soda (completely) this Spring and have re-discovered tea to fill the afternoon void.

I like strong, well balanced tastes. I ferment my own mead, cider, and sauerkraut.

I like green tea, oolong, black tea, flavored black tea, pu-erh, and some tisanes! Oh, and Mate, too!

Lately, I have been most enjoying nutty green teas and oolong teas.
