A perfectly fine bag tea served at a restaurant this morning with a pot of tepid tap water. Boo. I’m going to volunteer to be this place’s tea sommelier.

Steamed fresh from the garden, our Premium Green tea retains its color and natural flavor, leaving it rich in antioxidants. Pale green in the cup, with a slightly sweet flavor. Sip it plain.

I did this the just under boiling and ice cube method, and steeped for a round two and a half minutes. Ahh, water tempering. I love you.
This tea is very vegetal. Although I primarily found it light, the flavour came out a lot stronger when I let it cool a bit and had some vanilla yoghurt alongside. (I always have vanilla ice cream at Japanese restaurants, or vanilla-based ones at least, this is partially why; the two bring out each other’s flavours a lot.)
For a tea bag, this is not bad at all. Though I still have a lot of loose green tea to go through as well, I know I won’t mind going through the remaining tea bags I have for this either. Yay for green?
Prepared with barely-hot water, these bags make an okay green tea that is slightly sweet and dry on the tongue, but fairly refreshing. However, it’s far too easy to over-brew or use water that is too hot, which results in an incredibly bitter and undrinkable tea. While nowhere near the quality of a good loose-leaf green tea, it’s an okay alternative when loose is not an option.
