This is a delicious, vegetal (almost grassy) tea. Since it’s so expensive I tried resteeping my sample to see how much value I could get if I wanted to buy more. The first steep was delicious, but I really noticed a difference in the second steep. That second steep was still fairly good, but it seemed to have lost some its savory vegetable flavour and become a more mellow tea. It was clear to me that the leaves really wouldn’t have more to give for a third steep, so I didn’t even try.

This is an expensive tea, but I’m going to pick up 50g for free as one one my “frequent steeper” rewards from David’s Tea. I’m not sure that I’d pay full price for it. We’ll see how I feel when I finish my free 50g bag…
