This tea is deceiving in that when you first rinse it, the wet leaves smell very bitter. With a flash rinse and a 6 second steep, the flavor is very light, nutty, creamy, with a artichoke type of vegetal flavor.
This tea can be very temperamental, like most green teas. So, if you were to brew this, I would highly recommend a light hand on temperature and steep time. If you are careful with it, it can give you a very nice tea experience. If not, it can become very bitter, very quickly.
Flavors: Artichoke, Cream, Nutty
