I would easily have 100 tasting notes on this tea if I logged it every time I drank it. This tea amounts to my “old faithful”, that tea that I just keep going back to, in between my infatuations with the latest blends. It was the first loose leaf tea I ever tried, and it is still one of my favourites, even as my collection has grown exponentially.
This green has the biggest leaves of any that I’ve tried (mind you, I am not extremely well versed in green teas by any means). I re-steep it a solid 4-5 times every time I have it, and the last steep is usually just as good as the first.
The green tea is very mild, and the lemon complements it extremely well. Overall, its a very pleasant green tea blend. It is also very forgiving, I regularly brew it too hot because I don’t have the patience for the water to cool off and regularly forget about it when I am brewing it and it always turns out fine!
I have upgraded this ranking because my first tea is still my go to tea, and that saying something because I’ve now tried lots of yummy teas!
