This is one of the better non-Japanese green teas I’ve had I believe. The leaves are very attractive looking – nice green color and all twisty looking. I used 160F water with 5g tea in my 100mL gaiwan. I could get a good 8 steeps out of this tea.
I got some citric herbal flavors off of this throughout, reminding me of lemongrass and thyme. There was also a nutty flavor, which for about three steeps (3-5) took on a popcorn quality. Lots of popcorn flavored things are gross to me, but this was not. The flavor in general started to fade after about the fifth or sixth steep, but I did still get a few more lightly herbal infusions with some nutty notes alongside. This was a really easy drinking green tea which, when brewed at the recommended temperature, never got at all bitter. I didn’t try it with higher temperatures though, so I’m sure you could make it bitter if you decided to ;)
