The resulting cup was a lively yellowish-green with a scent that was very sweet and inviting. The taste however, was very strong and very green. I wouldn’t call it exactly unpleasant, but a tangy grassiness lingered on my tongue. I decided to try it again with a shorter steep time. For my second cup (using the same leaves) I let the tea steep for one minute. This was much more to my liking. The second cup was pleasantly strong and better balanced. With this cup I was able to find the sweet notes hinted at in its scent as well as a very nice creamy quality that finished each sip. If you are completely new to tea or have an aversion to overly vegetal varieties, you may want to look elsewhere. But if you enjoy strong green tea, this would be a great one to try.
