Tea Review: Java Emerald (Arum Tea)

Java Emerald
Type: Green
Origin: Indonesia
Product Description: This gentle green tea has a sweet vegetal aroma. The mild floral flavors are smooth and refreshing.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of green grass, sweet oats, and a hint of fragrant wood.

The golden-green infusion has an aroma of butter, green vine, and sweet baked squash with a thick rich taste of butter, almonds, barley and lightly floral finish.

This tea produced three flavorful infusions with only a mild decrease in complexity.  A green (tomato or green bean) vine aroma and taste had moved forward by the second and third cups and I enjoyed the light floral notes throughout.
