From The Tea Emporium

Delicate Japanese green tea with lemon peel and lemongrass. Light and grassy with a hint of lemon.
Tip: Use 1 tsp per 6 oz cup; heat fresh water to 80C; let steep 1-3 minutes. Makes an unbelievable iced tea!

Hmmm. I’m not sure about this one!
Hot, it’s quite tasty. It reminds me very much of Tea Emporium’s Sunshine Mate. In fact, I’m almost positive it’s the same blend of lemon additions.
Maybe a little more sour because of the green tea astringency. More sour lemony than candy lemony. I’ll rate it next time when I have a better idea of it’s potential.
I think I may have slightly burned the leaves to. I was in a rush!! and I had forgotten to time when I poured the water… in retrospect, probably two min prior. So I have no idea how hot it was. Next time, I’ll try this at home. Maybe then I can get more than two steeps. ha!
Also, this might possibly be the first time I’ve ever been tempting to add sugar. I think it would compliment the lemon really well. not all the time, but for a treat.

Oh and something else!! I like to drink my tea HOT. Not like my friends who let it cool down until it’s practically iced tea. This leaves a teeny window for me to drink my greens. and whites! At least my black teas used to stay hot for more than three minutes. Hmph.

Made some of this for dad tonight as he wanted to try something different. It was a pretty decent cup but I’m ok to leave it to my other half as this is the only tea in the house he’ll claim as his own lol

Oh man what a delicate tea. My first attempt at this one I steeped it for 3 minutes, and the leaves were definitely burnt. So the next time I didn’t even let the water come anywhere near a boil and did two minutes of a steep. My cup is still burnt! Sorry Sweet Lemon, but I don’t think you are for me.

Tina S.: I hope you don’t mind me offering up a suggestion …

What temp were you using? Unless otherwise directed, I start my greens at one minute, and about 170F (and add a little more time and a little higher temps for later steepings). I’ve had a few that taste great using this method but which taste astringent if they are steeped even a little over two minutes. I invite you to give the tea another chance!

Tina S.

nods I was using about an 82C, so definitely a comparable temperature. I certainly haven’t kissed the tea goodbye, but since it was a sample it will have to wait until it again passes through my collection. I’m stubborn so I like to conquer the difficult ones!

I second SimpliciTea’s suggestion. When I brewed this it was at about 85c and less than two min. Very nice, no burnt notes :)
fingers crossed!!
