This is first rate! 1 tsp w/195 water for ~3 minutes. Brewed to a medium green/brown swampwater..ok really, thats what it reminded me of. The flavor is light and very complex. Hints of Green Tea, slightly sour (acidic) and tannic. Has a flavor that stick with you for awhile. It would be a good tea for when you want something lightweight but flavorful. Could be mistaken for a whole leaf green tea.
