I just had this one for the first time from….my BRAND NEW GAIWAN that my son gave to me for Mother’s Day! Thank you, sweetie! This is a great green tea. I added no sugar or sweetener of any kind. I would resteep the leaves, but it is so late and I need to get some sleep tonight!
My bad. I bought this a long time ago when I was a tea newbie. It was the first green I really liked. Then in the frenzy of collecting more and more, it was laid aside and forgotten. Now it is too old. It made an okay cup of tea, but nothing to write home about. I thought I would give it a try since I loved the DragonWell from Teavivre but I think I will just toss it, and remind myself to drink my greens faster!
I have had this pouch of tea for a very long time…over a year. It is drinkable, but I can tell that if I have very much of it I will get a stomach ache from it. I may have had the water a bit too hot, I may have used too much leaf snce it is so very light and I was weighing it, but it has a bit of bite and is a tad astringent.
