Once I go through the rest of these green teas Teavivre sent me, I’m gonna have to have them all again together and really decide which one is my favorite.
The characteristics of this tea pretty much define everything I love about a lot of the greens I’ve tried so far. I love the sweet, vegetal taste with a hint of nuttiness of this one. The dry leaf smelled to me a lot like hazelnuts for some reason…but then again I don’t think I have a clear idea of what a chestnut smells like so that could be it.
Also I always have enjoyed wondering about brewing instructions only to be pleased with the results. I wasn’t expecting a green tea that brews just fine at a high temperature! But it works out just fine.
