First cup. Steep 2 mins.
The scent of fresh cut alfalfa. Woodsy flavors of grass, lemon peel, barley. Similar to a dense genmai cha. A great accompaniment to steak, meat soups or stews, mushu, or pork BBQ.
Second cup. Steep 5 mins.
The first steep seems to have washed off most of the tannins. This cup is a much cleaner taste, slightly more floral.
