Recent Tasting Notes
Not a bad green tea. Vegetal, a bit buttery and roasty. Lots of hay and some green peas on the nose that doesn’t really reach the palate.
I brewed this for 2 min at 82C. The package recommends boiling water for 3-5 minutes, but I can’t even imagine how bitter and astringent it would be. Already it has some pleasantly astringent notes and a bit of a drying feel.
Flavors: Astringent, Butter, Hay, Peas, Roasted, Vegetal
I bought this for camping, as a backup. Not my fave green tea, being Japanese (Ie steam dried)
I dunno, nothing jumped out and made me take notice but then as I said, I am biased in that regard. I can tell you that its of a decent quality,but how good I have no idea as I’ve neglected that area of my tea taste buds heh.
With some honey, it went down really easy. (I needed something to soothe my cough)
Overall, I wouldn’t be ashamed to serve this at camp, or in a pinch, at home. For only a dollar or two more, it’s loads better than the Tetley alternative so yay for that!
It’ll get used up on those days when I either ran out of infusers, or am super busy at work. Or those awkward times when someone non tea freakish offers to make your tea for you!
