Amount of Tea: 7 Grams
Brewing Vessel: Small Glass Pitcher
Type of Water: Distilled Water
Rinse Time: 10 Seconds
Steep Time: 35 Seconds – 45 Seconds – 60 Seconds

The flavor is somewhat reminiscent of Tie Guan Yin tea, but much lighter, and in my opinion, a little disappointing.

Very light, mild green tea flavor, with more bitterness then I was expecting.

Flavor notes: Vegetation, grass, orange blossom honey, and a moderate bitterness.
