When I purchased this tea, the sales associate instructed me to steep it with butter or coconut oil in order to activate the cannabinoids. I tried butter and steeped the tea by itself and drank it hot. The taste was literally just what you would think it would be- buttery grass. I love earthy and grassy green teas and oolongs, I search high and low for grassy matcha, but the flavor of this tea was too grassy even for me. I instantly started playing around to find a way to make the taste tolerable because I really wanted to reap the benefits. My first switch was from butter to coconut oil. The great part about coconut oil is that it adds in the coconut flavor, and as a lover of coconut, that helped a lot. If you’re not one to play with blending your own tea concoctions, this is how I suggest drinking this tea- in a teabag, with coconut oil, make sure the oil is put in the bag with the tea leaves and leave the bag in the cup while drinking.
