– The dry leaf is a mix of broken and full leaves
– It is medium to dark in colour and has a distinct grassy aroma
– The infused tea cups out a lime green liquor
– Both the aroma and flavour of the tea are grassy and sweet
– It has very little astringency, making it a very smooth cuppa
– Make sure you got the water temperature and infusion time right. The first time I made this tea, I didn’t have the temperature or time right, and it cupped out a liquor similar to a Chun Mee (which I’m not fond of). If you get a liquor that is overly bitter, try again – it should be sweet, grassy and smooth. I suggest infusing it for two to three minutes with 85C water.
– This tea is great value, and it makes a superb green tea for everyday drinking. I think it would have a wide appeal to both green tea and non-green tea drinkers
