Commercial Description

Blissful Buds™ is a mecha, or bud tea — made from young, unopened buds.

This is the type of tea served at the end of a meal at the best sushi restaurants, where the tea is referred to as agari. Blissful Buds™ has a rich, deep flavor and a slightly bitter but palate-cleansing aftertaste.

Brewing Instructions: (from Mellow Monk)

To brew, use 1 heaping teaspoon of tea leaves for an 8-ounce cup or mug. The water temperature should be about 75 degrees Celcius (167 degrees Fahrenheit). For the first steeping, let the tea brew for about 3 minutes. For the second and third steepings, let the tea brew for about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
