Leaves: Tea Bag
Steep: 1m, 2m
Color: medium yellow
Taste: I’m sooo excited to have a few samples of this tea in my collection! Sakura is something I’ve been wanting to try for a little while now. The packet is made of foil with a green backdrop & a cherry blossom in the middle. The aroma of this tea was more so lightly sweet than the usual vegetable scent i get from green teas. When removing it from the pack & looking closely at the tea bag I could see tiny pink bits of the sakura flower. When brewing I followed my regular tea technique allowing the water to cool before use. In the past i never thought about letting my water cool before using a tea bag but now that I know more, the results have been better than before. I first let this tea steep for 1 minute taking my fist sip the aroma was quite faint & the tea was very lightly flavored. The great thing about this tea there was no bitterness as i experienced with other bagged greens & it felt quite smooth when drinking. Clarity wise it was great clearly being able to see the bottom of my cup. The second 2m steep was also good.Overall I found this to be a nice light green tea bag.
Special thanks to my friend for this sample
