A review of Green Tea by Benner
Tea Name: Green Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: tea bag/ cup

I bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil and left to cool slightly (about 1 minute); I take one tea bag and put this in my tea mug. Adding the water to my cup, I leave it to steep for a few minutes.
This tea smells strongly and when tasted it is mildly astringent. I mean I know that I am a cup of green tea. It is not bitter but close enough.
Overall tasting notes: A delicate and refreshing cup of green tea that is mildly astringent as it is fresh in taste.
