I think less time cooler water or less time? and a touch of sweetener, really enjoying this berry green though.

Yes, let the spigot water cool and keep it to just a minute and it's a sweet vegetal with hints of berry. I wonder how this would fair as a tea cocktail?

This was a surprise gift from Newman who had read about my trip to the tea and champagne bar in NYC. Not only did it have a nice note but it was the most observant gift I've received in a long time!

If you go and place an order, I highly recommend the Coconut Custard as well!

I am not usually a green tea fan, so having a sweet green tea like this makes my day, this post is over-due as I've been holding onto the tea since before the new year! Better late than never?
