Bought this with a giftcard (which is why I was willing to pay $20 for 10g of tea). I knew this was overpriced, but the sales person said it was a slightly toasty yellow, and that’s my current flavour craving.
I did not realise this is a very VERY light tea. I mean very light. You almost can’t taste anything, even with long steep times and lots of leaf (1.5 tsp is what I used).
Steeps 1 and 2: 100 mL of 80 * C water, 5 minutes each, 1.5 tsp leaf
Almost no flavour, clear liquid. Slight tea scent to the brew, but not a lot of flavour yet.
Steep 3: 100 mL of 80 * C water, 8 minutes
Light tea taste, no bitterness, slightly buttery and sweet with notes of grain
Steep 4: 100 mL of 80 * C water, 5 minutes
Light tea flavour, more buttery but less sweetness. A tiny bit of grain flavour. not toasted, but the smells of oats or dried corn kernels.
Overall: Overpriced and not a very good brew either. This isn’t a good tea for those who like strong teas.
