From Simpson & Vail

This organic green tea comes from the Seogwang Tea Garden located in Seogwipo, Jeju Island, South Korea. This area was designated as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site. The water, soil and temperature all combine here to create the perfect environment in which to grow high quality teas. This tea is plucked mid-end of June and is roasted with a traditional Korean technique.

These vibrant green leaves have a fresh, exquisite vegetal aroma. This tea brews to a light jade color with a delicate, creamy vegetal taste.

Brew tea at 180º – steep for 2 minutes.

An interesting sounding green tea, mainly because it is a rare tea from South Korea.  The dry leaf has a mix of sizes and the aroma of some kind of fresh vegetable.   The brew is BRIGHT neon green but cloudy- cloudy with all those nutrients, I would imagine.   The flavor is almost like, blindfolded, I would guess that it is a cup of matcha and that surely doesn’t usually happen with all the green teas I taste, or really any of them that aren’t specifically matcha.  So if you want the flavor of matcha, without actually drinking a cup of matcha, here you go.  Otherwise, there is a hint of beans yet something fruity hiding in there. But mostly it tastes like matcha.   Very fresh and lovely on a day when I’m physically feeling cruddy.  Quite good – bright in color and flavor and reinvigorating. Better than I expected!
Steep #1  // 1 1/4 teaspoons for full mug // 35 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep

Also, I bought this in 11/2019 so it is holding up fairly well! I really need to enjoy this while it’s fresher.
