I think I steeped this tea too long as it was much darker and almost bitter. I remember it being a light, pale green and not the olive I drank. It didn’t have the soothing qualities I remembered, more of a harsh bitter blend. Must shorten steep time next time.
A nice, soft and lightly sweet cup. I brewed this for 3 minutes in 175F water. There just isn’t much flavor here today. I think I better use less water next time.
Ahh…got it back to how I remember it. A nice light green color after 2 minutes @ 175. Much more depth to the flavor, light indescribable to me at the moment, but not the hay taste I’ve been getting from other greens (like cocomint green). This is one smooth tea. I will have to sample more greens to start improving my vocabulary.
This was a good tea to drink after a good size lunch, not too rich to make me feel full, just light and enough flavor to enjoy a good cuppa.
