52 Tasting Notes
Everytime I make a cup of this I think it’s herbal tea..so I steep it like it is until I realize, wait NO! It’s green AND white! Then it’s too late. Steeped a little too long today..I think I could do with 3 minutes. This tea is a little deceiving only that I think the strong smell= strong peach taste but regardless, the taste of green tea is there with a hint of peach. I like it.
Second time making this; results are far better. I used a little more tea, about two heaping teaspoons full. Resulted in a bolder flavor which I enjoy. Steeped for around 3:30, but I feel like 3 minutes flat would suffice. The buttery flavor is really there now, and I do enjoy it a lot :) Reminds me of buttered spinach. Just going to get one steep out of this one as I’m in a bit of a rush, but at least now I found out my preferences for this tea :)
First of all, this stuff smells delicious once the tin is popped. I steeped the first time around 3 minutes at a lower temperature and second time for 4 minutes at a higher temp. First steep brought out the flavor more. I think it was the cooler temp.
Taste isn’t as strong as I thought it was; I think I was predicting a strong peach flavor like those found in a herbal tea. Regardless, there was a light peach flavor which was very smooth and left a nice sweet aftertaste. Brews a light yellow. Definitely going to reorder. :)
This did it for me in terms of green tea. The first steep of about 4 minutes hit the spot, second @ 3 wasn’t strong enough for my taste.. and nothing is cooler then watching the rolled up leaves explode in my infuser ><.
Anywho… brews a typical light green color. In terms of taste, I would say spinach hits the nail on the head. I didn’t taste the smokiness people were experiencing, but that didn’t matter much. The longer steep definitely created a darker tea, which I enjoy personally. I like being able to taste the tea, not get a hint of it.
Great staple for any tea drinker. Must have.
