21 Tasting Notes
As described it is a smooth and light tea with a green and roasty aroma . The tea is mainly stems with a small quantity of leaves.
The recommended instructions worked fine, but coming back home in a cold winter night, I prefer to prepare a single infusion, with just boiled water and steeping from 3 to 5 min for a stronger infusion.
