Your FAQs, Answered
Although both Chinese and Japanese Green Teas offer immune boosting and health-giving properties, they are inherently different in terms of their palate and character. Chinese Green Tea has slightly twisted tea leaves, typically presenting a light, clean and refreshing palate, while Japanese Green Teas have flat folded leaves that often omit a nori-like, vegetal palate.
Green tea is what we like to call a self-drinker. It should be served plain with no additions, to preserve the palate it presents.
When over steeped, and prepared at the incorrect temperature, green tea releases tannins that cause the tea to taste bitter. To avoid this bitterness, green teas should be steeped between 30 seconds and 1 minute at a temperature of 180° F or 82° C.
All tea, whether it be White, Green, Oolong or Black, comes from the same plant, the evergreen shrub Camellia Sinensis.
I'm a huge durian lover, but....
I love most teas from tealeaves, but this one has a medicine taste to it that I cannot stand, the notes are no where close to a durian flavor.
