This is a pretty good green tea.

I sipped this sample down yesterday first thing in the morning. Not impressive at all. Despite cooling the temperature down substantially and using approximately 3g out of the 5g sample in a huge mug, steeping for not even two minutes, it turned out bitter and vegetal. Grassy too, but more so vegetal. Meh. Not my thing. But I’m thankful that I got this as a free sample, anyway.

Sipdown (180)

So plain greens and puerhs and chais are not my favourite and those flavors comprise about 4/10 of the teas in the monthly subscription I got so I decided to bite the bullet and try one instead of reaching for all the tastier sounding teas first. This seemed like the lesser of evils so I made it my tea of the day.

As I sip, it’s like drinking hay. Hay and grass…and peas. Essentially it’s like a bunch of other senchas I have had. It’s pleasant enough to drink but probably not something I’ll remember when im done and definitely not something I would order for myself since I barely drink flavored green teas, let alone straight ones.

Any brewing info? Temp / Volume / Tea Weight would be helpful if possible.

I used their recommended brewing parameters at 160F for 3 min. And I just dumped the whole 5g sample into the mug.

Most importantly, was it a big mug or a small one. How much water would you say you used? For the temp 160F to 176F is good, depending on personal pref.
