This is one of the better non-Japanese green teas I’ve had I believe. The leaves are very attractive looking – nice green color and all twisty looking. I used 160F water with 5g tea in my 100mL gaiwan. I could get a good 8 steeps out of this tea.

I got some citric herbal flavors off of this throughout, reminding me of lemongrass and thyme. There was also a nutty flavor, which for about three steeps (3-5) took on a popcorn quality. Lots of popcorn flavored things are gross to me, but this was not. The flavor in general started to fade after about the fifth or sixth steep, but I did still get a few more lightly herbal infusions with some nutty notes alongside. This was a really easy drinking green tea which, when brewed at the recommended temperature, never got at all bitter. I didn’t try it with higher temperatures though, so I’m sure you could make it bitter if you decided to ;)

Flavors: Herbs, Lemongrass, Nutty, Popcorn, Thyme

160 °F / 71 °C 0 min, 15 sec 5 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
