I did the classic tea brewing. 7 minutes in hot water (not boiling). I’d like to but don’t have all the equipment for the traditional yerba maté preparation. Maybe some day….

Leaves are light green.
Color of the tea is surprisingly quite green. Dark shade of it too. Not very saturated. Clear.
There’s no particular smell – just plain herbal tea smell.
No bitterness i read about. At all. It’s a very gentle herbal tea. So far quite yummy too. Didn’t put much leaves in it tho (was careful) and i waited till the water cools down a bit.
Tastes herbal. Gentle. Even a bit sweetish. I like it a lot…
I don’t know if this qualifies as green tea, but if it did (and it tastes most close to it) i’d say its a very good kind of it.
Yay, another yummy tea :D

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
