I hope I am not tempting fate by trying this tea in the evening time (it’s 7:23 here) but I wanted to stay awake to do laundry and some other things. Keep your fingers crossed for me….
This is a lovely hand rolled tea that is visually nice to look at. I decided to go for the 3 minute steep at approximately 180F (my guesstimate).
Flavorwise, this reminds me a lot of a Chinese green tea with savory, vegetal artichoke type flavors, like a chun mee or something of that nature. There is a definite sweetness in the finish too which is really nice. Their website says “grassy” which I am not really getting at all. Something about this seems very relaxing and I can definitely see how this would be a good everyday drinking type of tea (if not for the price).
I will definitely consider buying a large size of this at some point to keep around – on the shopping list it goes. So far everything from NTT has been good in my opinion.
