Part of my latest shipment from Adagio. This is a great afternoon tea to bury yourself in some work after lunch and tune out.

My very favorite by far. I highly recommend steeping for 7-8 min at only 160 degrees as apposed to higher temps. Also good 2 to 3 steeps but I increase the steeping time by 4 min each additional steep.
A smokey darker green tea. Much hardier than your average Green tea but also much bolder.
This tea has a fairly sweet / floral flavor. It is nice when I’m not in the mood for a really “green” flavor. I like it, but it isn’t an everyday tea for me.
A light tea. I agree with comparisons that suggest it taste like a cross between a white tea and a green tea. Solid.
I’m trying the new batch that just came in from Adagio. Love the smoky flavor. I always inadvertently brew it a little strong- since it is so compact, I need to go with a scant 1 tsp per 8 oz.
rather than a scant tsp per 8oz try 2.25 grams per 6oz.
I keep trying Earl Grey, only to realize that I just don’t like it and probably never will.
Tastes like a cup of grass clippings to me. Not a fan.
