Steeped per the brewing instructions provided by Verdant Tea. 4g of leaf in 4oz of water. Boiled then cooled to 170F. The aroma of the leaves is intoxicating in the bag and only becomes more so after a wake up rinse, steep, and decant (I’m using a gaiwan). With a 5 second steep (second infusion) the liquor decants a very pale straw yellow, very clear. I get a lot of sweet green pea in the nose, some other young green vegetables, and a zingy aroma that reminds me of the smell of raw sugar. The flavor seems quite delicate; some slight sugar sweetness, faint young green vegetables. The body is more substantial then I would have thought. This tea coats the mouth, and only dries out a tiny bit on the finish. Very refreshing.

Update: 9 infusions and it’s still tasty

170 °F / 76 °C
