This is a great everyday green tea (not that its a “common tea”, but is not one that you get tired of easily). That’s exactly what I’ve been doing the past few days – sipping on this one, as an alternate taste between drinking other teas. Very nice switch in taste from a greener oolong. It keeps a consistency, but seems to reset my palate and provides a new experience each time I go back to the other tea. This tea is more of the leisure type, it doesn’t seem to over steep easily and the flavor is excellent.
My method of brewing has been in a tall mason jar, starting with 45% room temperature water then the rest at 205°F – this seems to bring the overall temp to around 185°F. Once there is only 20% left of tea in the jar, it’s time to bring it back to a full glass. I’ve gotten many infusions doing it this way and has proven to be an excellent way to drink more fluids.
The taste is grand, with it’s buttery edamame aroma and taste. I do indeed like this one! It is not too overpowering and really gives a good charge of energy. Definitely nice!
