Water: 8oz at 180 degrees
Leaves: very large flat leaves
Color: Light Green
Taste: I was interested in trying this tea because I haven’t seen anything like it before. First steep was for 1 minute, the first sip was bitter then it mellowed out to a lighter non bitter note. On the other hand the second steep was the complete opposite 2m I didn’t like it at all. This time around it was very bitter, I couldn’t finish my cup. I’m not sure if I used too many leaves or if my water was a bit hotter than expected but overall I didn’t enjoy this tea.
I recently brewed this tea again this time following a different technique, it came out much better than the first time. Light smooth with no bitterness.
