Steep Information:
Amount: ~8g
Water: 1,000ml filtered water 180°F
Tool: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker BTM800XL
Steep Time: 3 minutes, 4 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: not much of a smell
Steeped Tea Smell: nutty, vegetal
Flavor: silky, vegetal, nutty
Body: Light
Aftertaste: slightly bitter, vegetal, smooth
Liquor: translucent yellow-green

3 minutes was too weak, 4 was a little bitter, perhaps 3:30 would have been best?

It’s a light, clean, smooth tea. This would be a poor choice as a breakfast tea, but is nice for afternoon supping.

Good but not irreplaceable.

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
