I tried to prepare this as one would traditionally prepare a loose leaf green, and I ended up with something that tastes like the definition of average. Definitely easy to drink, but lacking in a lot of flavor. It doesn’t taste particularly “green” to me. Then again, I’m not the biggest expert on green teas at all (I’m barely a novice in that regard).
Next time I think I’ll steep this a bit longer, but I really didn’t want it to get bitter, and I didn’t want to “cook” the tea in super-hot water. I guess it doesn’t matter with a cheaper, bagged variety like this.
