I’m liking this more than last time, I made it with cooler water than previously. I think Adagio’s suggestion of 180 is to high for this tea.

Steeps a very light golden color. Has a nice taste, I like this better than the Gyokuro.

Additionally I am not getting the taste of corn flakes that I got last time (see my previous note). If you are looking for a subtle green without the taste of grass this one may be it. Make sure to try varying the temperature with your sample the taste is better but still subtle and not bold. This reminds me more of a white tea than a green tea to be honest and since I like a lot of different whites…

A man, not a myth or legend. Inspired equally by Muir and Merlin (hence the exotic spelling of the welsh latter). I’ve been drinking tea for many years now, but got pushed into loose leaf by observing my co-workers and realizing that there might be something more here than just boiling water and a tea bag. I’m glad they gave me a push… It has been fun so far!
