Brewed for 2 min., this taupe-y green brew is bitter with a vegetal backdrop, with the same smell in the mug. Maybe I’ll try some different brewing conditions and see if I can reverse the two characteristics and make “bitter” retreat into the background. The way it is in this first brewing, it is barely drinkable, almost chemical-tasting. I’m disappointed but hopeful some changes can redeem it. Stay tuned…

Hi, I’m a librarian, SCA member, and tea lover from Madison, WI. I’ve been drinking tea all my life, but have recently become more of a fanatic about it. Single, straight, and looking. Would love to take a date to one of the great tea places here in Madison!
