Unlike with the Ganesha Green, which I brewed way too strong to use up the sample leaf, this time I actually brewed according to my preferences (5g to 1L) and tracked down a binder clip to try to keep the air out of the opened foil packet for the rest of the sample. Left overnight, strained the next morning… this is light enough I’m now getting that refreshing, thirst-quenching quality, which was stifled before with biting astringency. The flavor is lightly grassy, and I’m still getting a bit of that floral orchid note that I tasted in the Ganesha Green. There is a bit of a spinach note at the end of the sip, but it is more subtle, and the tea prepared this way is much sweeter, with a dew/spring water quality. Very pleasant!
