3 Tasting Notes
Ahh, green tea fit for a king. This bag of treasure has a rich smell with beautifully rolled long dark green leafs. The brew smells sexy with a floral green tea note. The drink is mild, no surprises, followed by a soothing sweet after taste. It’s a peaceful zen approach to the pallet with kingly quality.
If you want to bring to life a warm spring day and a walk through the orchard blossoms start brewing. The smell and the taste are the same for this sexy Jasmine tea. I brewed a tea spoon of pearls in 8 oz at 165 F for 3 minutes…again and again. It’s mild and looks mostly clear with a hint of green, but carries a raw floral naturalistic note to it. The taste summed up, your mouth settles in a warm bed of blossoms. I could dare say it may have been kissed by the fairies. I’m new to the world of tea but by far this is one of my favorites and is worthy enough to be in your collection and served to any princesses that cross your path.
The reviews looked great so I gave this a try in two of the four directions Red Leaf suggested. I even made frothed milk. First off in opening the package the smell was amazing. Then I did a hot brewing at ~180F with a tablespoon of Matcha in 2 oz water, stirred well and then added the 8oz hot milk and topped it with froth. The caramel smell was nice, the drink was smooth. The taste however was a combination of mellow bitter, somewhat flavorless, and left you with a medicinal tang. I could be just the Matcha, it’s my first time trying it. I may suggest after tweaking with it adding less Matcha for the hot brewing then what the directions call for. I found the 1/2 teaspoon in a water bottle or 16.9oz more tame and tolerable. Over all with the directions it was borderline drinkable for my taste with that unforgettable medicine tang.
