Very GoodGoodGood Value

This is my favorite tea from Adagio so far. When brewed as recommended this tea is very light with a sweetness and some fruity tones. But I found it too thin this way.

I like brewing it much longer (8+ minutes) and with slightly warmer water (190-ish)...it comes out much stronger and more interesting...more grassy tones come out...more bitterness and astringency but in an enjoyable sort of way. If it's brewed this way, you only get one infusion out of the leaves, but I actually preferred this brewing method.

An interesting tea, especially if you like teas that are light like a white tea, but have some crispness and bite to them like most green teas.
