I wasn’t excited about this tea when I first had it, but it has started to grow on me. I prefer the grassier Japanese teas, but this tea has a nice, strong flavor, and it holds up to multiple steeps very well.
When brewed, the small, tightly balled, silvery-green leaves open into large olive green leaves. The tea has a medium body, with a very delicate hint of smokiness in the light amber cup. Brew tea at 180º – steep for 2 minutes.
