This is a decent tea, but it’s not my favorite. Leaves are thin — not quite wiry or needle-like, but close. Aroma is nice: robust, rustic, and nutty. Flavor is very grassy, and very “traditional green tea”-ish. It’s noticeably astringent, but not unpleasantly so. This reminds me more of a darker green tea, or maybe an age-worthy oolong which hasn’t been aged. It certainly feels like a quality tea, but it’s not my personal style.
This is definitely a food tea; better with dinner or dark chocolate than by itself. I could see some people absolutely adoring this tea, but I don’t plan to order it again.
It took some experimentation to find brew settings that worked well. I had more success with a short brew time, and pre-rinsing the leaves twice seems to improve the texture. I usually got 3-5 infusions out of it, depending on brew time.
