I have been enjoying this green tea since rediscovering it again after my herbal tea trials and tribulation as it now seems to have been. I mean that herbal teas, is a difference experience all together and at times not with good results. Anyhow, I am back to drinking plain green teas. Using freshly boiled water I put one tea bag in my cup and leave it to steep for two minutes. The tea’s aroma is clean and fresh and the tea’s color is light brown; almost the color of honey. I take sips after sips of this tea savoring the tingling sensation on my palette and upon swallowing of the tea there is that slight after taste that lingers reminding me that this is how green tea is meant to taste.
Overall tasting notes: crisp and clean with slight tingling on the palette.
Cup’s characteristic: fresh and mildly astringent
Liquor color: light brown (honey colored)
Taste: mild to very astringent if steep for longer
