First Brew 120 degrees F 2 minutes

I have to be in a particular mood for this tea. It has a strong Umami flavor that you either love or you hate. The first infusion is a powerhouse of umami, spinach, and pumpkin seed that will surprise you. It mellows out throughout the next 4 infusions, but it is a definitely a unique tea. Not many sweet notes in this one. A wonderful tea if you enjoy strong vegetal green teas with a lot of umami.

Savory and brothy. Maintains its umami taste through the first 3 steeps, with the last 2 steeps tasting more fresh and mineral-y rather than savory. No bitterness whatsoever! Absolutely delicious!
