Second go at making this tea. I doubled the amount of tea I used and also the time I left it to steep (to about 7-8 mins). I noticed the tea leaved were able to expand nicely with the added time, so hopefully its flavour profile did as well!
The aroma, again, is wonderfully enticing, a little bit sweet, and still reminds me if lychee. It’s so weird, but really nice at the same time!
The green tea flavour did expand a bit to be more fulfilling, I’m even getting a bit of that sweetness in each sip – not quite enough to be quite satisfying to my taste buds, though. Overall, the taste of this tea did improve by adding more strength to it. However, IMO if the flavour of tea doesn’t live up to the expectations it makes with its wonderful aroma, I find it disappointing because I want my taste buds to enjoy it as much as my nose!
It’s a decent tea, and I give it a slightly improved rating, but not one that has me wanting for more.

I joined Steepster Nov. 2/’15. I am an aspiring law student, currently studying for the LSAT. Meanwhile, I drink a lot of tea, work as a legal assistant and watch Netflix in my down time.

Ever since joining Steepster, I have tried a whole bunch new tea, met awesome people, and learned quite a lot! I am still expanding my tea horizons, currently working on exploring the oolong and puerh territories. Oolong has been a pleasant journey so far, while puerh is more rocky and uncertain. I shall keep trekking on!

My favourite teas are blacks and greens, both flavoured and unflavoured, and I have a few staples that I drink all the time.

I love to try teas that I would otherwise not have access to, and therefore I am always looking for people to trade samples with. Send me a message if you are interested!

My Wishlist is teas that I would like to restock (as a note to myself). My ratings are mostly arbitrary. Generally, anything above 90 I will likely restock. 70-80 I enjoyed, but will not go out of my way to get again. Anything below 70 was not that great, and the lower the mark the less I enjoyed it.
