From The Tea Time Shop

Green tea leaves rolled tightly to resemble small gunpowder pellets. Mellow, earthy and vegetal note.

How to Steep:

Use 1 teaspoon per 8 oz. cup. Bring water to a boil and let it cool slightly before pouring over tea leaves. Steep 2 minutes. It can be re-steeped by adding 1 minute to each steep.

The tightly rolled pellets remind me of dry steel cut oats, but magnified and greenish gray.

Steeped, the liquor is olive and slightly cloudy from tea dust that emerges from the unfurling leaves.

The flavour is slightly smokey, vegetal, earth, and vaguely seaweed-like.

Steeped: 4

Thank you, MissB, for passing this along for a belated review.
