I thought I’d give it a try. I’d rather drink bagged green tea steeped in boiling water.

Bitter. Awful. Nasty.

Can’t even finish the cup. Dumping it out.

From the Butiki Educational Traveling Tea Box 2.

The label doesn’t say CTC but I thought I should add it to the database. I was surprised to see that green tea could be processed this way like black tea. Considering it’s CTC, I didn’t think the quality would be great but was curious to see how it would taste. I used about half a teaspoon (not a full one like it says below) of these dark green pellets and then let them steep for one minute. To my surprise the flavor was far too light (come on, it’s CTC), so I increased the steeping time.

The dark yellow liquor doesn’t look appealing. The flavor was even less appealing. It tasted like any other poor quality green tea. I wasn’t expecting greatness from a CTC green tea, but it was still interesting to test out. The yellow emoticon fits my reaction perfectly. (I wonder if this tea were processed from the Assamica bush.)

Today is my birthday – 24! My mom was supposed to go to the optometrist’s to get new glasses but she moved the appointment next week. I’m hoping that all of us (my immediate family) go to restaurant. I don’t want to leave her home and bring her food. She’s now seeing the doctor about the swelling, probably caused by the cast being too tight.

I said somewhere in a thread that my Verdant gaiwan broke. She offered to buy me a new one for birthday/graduation present:

185 °F / 85 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Happy Birthday!!!! Cute gaiwan! Odd, I don’t remember putting in a CTC green.


Thank you!! :) The label just says “Kenya Green.” I thought I’d tack on CTC.


Yeah, I saw that green in there.
