8g in 350ml. Initially a smoky aroma which went away with the rinse, then it was a sweet grassy aroma. The tea was very light in color, and the flavor slighly sweet. As the tea cooled, more complex flavors appeared, but I couldn’t name them.

Light yellow steep.
Dry Leaves are long and rolled just a bit. They a great shade of green. There is a almost pine smooky aroma to this. The tea does not seem to have much of a body. It tastes like it smells though.
