I used to drink tons of green teas, but somehow I’ve fallen more in love with the roastier teas. However, I still enjoy some greens as well. This one as particularly nice, with layers of flavor. I followed the initial steeping parameters of 1.5 min, then added 30 sec to each additional sip.
The first cup was redolent with ’green’ness, like a cup of matcha, so very fresh tasting, rich & clean. The very essence of spring, a thick lush spring. The 2nd steep started out a little astringent, but continued the wonderful savory tastes, adding a mouthfeel of nutbutter, creamy & thick. I’m on the 3rd steep now, the color of the tea is still a nice yellow green, the flavor pure, the texture like water from a mountain spring. After each sip there is a bright almost citrus sensation up the center of my tongue, & a lingering thickness around the edges.
