Needed a green tea so pulled this one out. Brewed it at a slightly higher temperature than I normally do for green teas (Set the microwave for 2 and a half minutes – usually, I set it to about a minute and 45 seconds). It came out at about 178 degrees when I poured the water over the tea leaves.
I’m still getting the bitter vegetal taste I got last time I had this tea, but this time it was less bitter and more vegetal. Which I find a little odd, since it’s brewed slightly higher than last time (or maybe it’s the same and I’m a little thrown off because of the 5-degree increments on Steepster).
It’s a little like liquid spinach. That may not sound too appealing, but I’m enjoying it a lot. Heh, I ought to find a tea that tastes like liquid tomato (not tomato water – too weak on the tomato flavor).
Flavors: Spinach, Vegetal
