Review How I LOVE this Tea! I have been enjoying it this very snowy and cold past month immensely. I have been making 500ml, or a bit larger, pots in my glass Teapot so I can admire the unique dark color of this Green Tea- a rich, substantial broth of warm brown tinted a hint of dark ruby. It looks so especially and deliciously lovely and inviting to enjoy sitting on my Teapot warmer with the small Tea light candle flickering from underneath. I steep this in a separate porcelain or earthenware Teapot then strain it into the glass Teapot. This substantial Tea broth is amazing alone or with snacks or meals, as well as brewed cold or steaming hot. I can get definitely 3 brews out of this but usually can always get a fourth and also a light fifth brew! The taste does linger, makes my mouth water and I crave this Tea. I find this Tea to be incredibly calming and just extremely unique, it's really just a Perfect Tea for me with not only the pleasurable taste and aroma, but ease in brewing and such low caffienne! I usually brew my first 1-3 steepings hot then switch over to a light, refreshing cold-brewed version. I also enjoyed it when I've added a bit of sifted Matcha Super Premium to it, both hot and cold-brewed, just for an extra burst of flavor notes but also health benefits. A hot Teapot of this has been a very faithful companion as I've enjoyed the 2014 Olympics these past freezing Winter nights!
