This is a very nice tea. The trick is to rein in it's flavor, because it is VERY strong.

I typically brew half the amount of leaf I would normally. Cast iron, 1.5 - 2 minutes. Keep water cooler (75-80*C).

1st steep: Vegetal and grassy with a hint of sweetness and a touch of smokiness. An intense freshness.

2nd steep: The best steep. All flavors very harmonious. The intensity is reduced and sweetness is increased.

3rd steep: Flavor profile is closer to a typical green tea. Still complex, but very delicate.

Hello, and welcome to RateTea and thank you for your first review!

I also found this tea to be surprisingly strong, especially in contrast to the light color of the cup it brews up. Making multiple brief steeps is a good way to go with it.

Let me know if you have any questions about tea or about the website! I look forward to reading more of your reviews!
