2 Tasting Notes


Mostly Vegetal at 80 degrees brewed the traditional way (leaves in chai hai, add more water when half full) but refreshing none the less. Feels nice and thick in the mouth and throat. Will try at a lower temp with a longer steep. I imagine this would make a great cold brewed ice tea.

This is my favorite green tea. I could drink it everyday but I like to save it for a treat.

I have brewed western and gong-fu, both work great.

When the water hits the leaves you can smell the beautiful sweet corn aroma.

After a 15 second steep (optional with western) the tea tastes very mildly of sweet caramel. After a 30 second steep it then tastes more richly of sweet corn, with a mild grass hint. The tea feels smooth and thick in the mouth. For the next couple of steeps the grass taste gets stronger but it’s not overly grassy like freshly cut grass, more of a warm green tea flavour. As you continue to steep, the grass flavour diminishes and you are left with that beautiful sweet candy corn flavour once more.

Flavors: Caramel, Popcorn, Sweet, Sweet, Warm Grass
