update: after weeks of use: the character of this one is simple compared to $48.

~~~~~~

TGY

leaf: green, smell: bit nutty + greenish, but smell had stamina, was not faded = good (imho)

(1tsp+194F) x 3min

liquor: yellow-ish,

smell: very nice, strong captivating ‘fatty’ nutty + somewhat sweet!

taste:
BAM! (a-la Emerill… but no dash of pepper here)
good flavor: 5/7 = mix of green + nutty (cashew?) , distinctive. mild aftertaste. low astringency 1/7.
does very well in rebrewing: did another 194F hot water, and about 2 more room temp water. taste: seems to get greener,
astringency still remains low.
price to value ratio is high, so says me.

tea-keep-o-meter: YES. oh yes give me more!
