drank Green by Hawaiian Islands Tea Company
2799 tasting notes

This is a grocery store quality tea, so it isn’t the most amazing green. I picked this up because I love the coconut macadamia rooibos from this company, and I’m always up for Hawaiian grown teas. I’m not 100% sure this was tea grown in Hawaii, but it was packaged by the Hawaii Coffee Company and the back of the box has a map of the islands on it.

This brews up darker than most greens I have had. The dry leaf and brewed liquid smell very green. Vegetal, notes of seaweed and spinach. Slightly astringent in the aftertaste. A bit of umami. It tastes like any other grocery store bagged green (abeit, less awful that a few brands I have tried). I wouldn’t go out of my way to try this, but if you enjoy bagged green teas, you might want to try it if it is offered.

Flavors: Green, Seaweed, Spinach, Umami

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 5 min, 30 sec

I lost my tin of steamed mulberry leaf from Silk Road, so I purchused this when I went to a cool grocery store in Hawaii to buy Butler’s soy curls. Anyway, I wouldn’t normally buy mulberry leaf tea in teabags, however I really like mulberry tea and I’m desperate.

I steeped 1 teabag in 500 mL hot water, let it steeped more than 5 minutes, probably more like 8 minutes. It is really good strong. I love the delicate green flavour, buttery, umami, reminiscent of toasted oolongs or steamed green tea.

Flavors: Butter, Toasty, Umami

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Profile

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
