I was a bit surprised at DT’s suggested steeping temp and time (4-5 min at 94C), as I was afraid it would turn bitter on me. I decided to follow the instructions for the first cup at least, and am happy to report no bitterness.

Unlike one of the other reviewers, I like the fact that there are no floral additions to this tea. It has a very light, grassy taste and smell to it. NO perfumey or floral notes here.

Overall, a very mild, pleasant cup of tea. It’s not one that I’ll think to drink often, as it’s not very distinctive (maybe I’m not used to luxuries enough to appreciate its subtle qualities, lol), but I’ll enjoy it when I do drink it.

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
