Amount: 3 teaspoons
Water: 170 filtered, boiled
Steep Time: a little over 2 minutes
Smell: vegital, smoky, reminded me of a garden
Flavor: grassy, vegetal
Aftertaste: sweet and tangy
Liquor: light, nearly clear, green
As I’ve said before I don’t really love the grassy vegital taste of greens, but I keep trying them anyway. I was worried the leaves didn’t unfurl enough – was the water too cool? too hot? Did I not steep long enough? I tried a little at 2 minutes and it was still too weak, then decided at 3 it was enough as I didn’t want it to get bitter. I think adding anything would overpower this tea.
I tried 2 minutes, 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 7 minutes. All were too weak and by 7 it was too bitter.
