The wiry leaves in this are so dark I was under the impression it was a black tea until I checked the label. Instructions said to use 2 tsp. and I took my best shot at that — it comes as such a tangled mass that it’s difficult to separate any and impossible to measure.
Dry this smells of citrus and hay. The wet leaves smell like sweet seaweed. It does taste like a green tea, but a very dark robust one. Now I taste the citrus AND the seaweed. It’s astringent, but only mildly. Not unpleasant.
Overall, this is a green tea with a LOT of character. Very interesting. Definitely worth trying.
p.s. It stands up very well to a second steep. No loss of flavor at all.
