This is from huge bags section. It is in paper bags so… I wasn’t really sure if I want to try it.
But decided to brew it. Water was ready as others were drinking coffee, but it was quite close by, so I have decided to use that water as it was not boiling, but exact temperature I don’t know. I assume around 75-80°C; that said exact for green tea.
And I was steeping it for maybe 3 minutes and it actually turned out great. It was not good as fresh, I bet, but: It has got quality of decent green tea bag. It has got notes of grass, bit of hay (I expected other way, more hay), no grass seed notes, some refreshing notes and some umami was there too!
Considering unknown age and paper bag… well this is a surprise and I wonder how fresh tea is.
Flavors: Grass, Hay, Umami
