Just an individual teabag of this that a coworker brought in to the office for me to try; I don’t know that I’ve ever had a tea that came from Italy before? I mean, obviously the tea itself doesn’t come from Italy – that’s probably from Japan given how marine-y and sencha like the taste was. This is just an Italian tea company; and it looks like it was intended in part for consumption within the country but also maybe for export?
I thought it was kind of unpleasant – the base is really strong with a lot of sharp oceanic notes and grassiness to it that I kind of loathe in Sencha; and even ignoring the fact those notes aren’t really my jam they also just seemed to read as not very fresh? Like, the tea itself seemed pretty stale/aged. The strawberry was ok; but somewhat artificial and perfumey. Also not nearly as strong for what I would have wanted to mask the taste of the base. However, gotta remember this is European tea and it feels like a lot of European tea companies have a very different approach to flavoured teas. Like, they don’t seem to like to hide the taste of their base teas the same way North American tea companies do? Just as a generalized observation, anyway. Especially when you look at companies like TeaGschwendner, Fauchon, Dammann Freres, etc.
So yeah – tasted, added to my tally of teas I’ve tried. Not personally impressed though.
First try, according to sellers suggestion.
Quite balanced a bit sweet, a little weak body. Mayby 4 minute brewing or 95 degrees makes it better, or mayby not. Mayby this is the quality of tea. Quite good, but I miss the quality of Wulong back home. Italy ,Brescias best tea shop.
I brewed in 75°C and 3 minutes like the man said(company). It tasted kinda like Lung Ching. But I’v had better. A bit grassy a hit of sweet,quite too watery. Mayby I am making injustice for thease teas by using water from the espressomachine boiler. I miss propper waterboiler.
Very good tea !!!! I loved it and im still fascinated with this filtrofoglia bags are hmmm a miracle besides they are pretty cute.
Talking again about the tea I can describe the flavor as a perfect tea for a summer lunch, perhaps rainy day perhaps not, but its simply great for a summer lunch alone or with that special person. Its a strong green tea in his class and its a very good quality too, it worths the price and I will keep drinking this for a while because its really yummy :)
This tea i taste it in Florence. Its WOW! i totally advice to all green tea lovers this good quality green tea mint. I loved the fact that comes with a FILTROFOGLIA bag which means if for many cups of the same bag which is quite cool since the tea its pretty good. I like it with very hot water and slowsly drink it since like that the sweet refreshing flavor can come into my mouth and remind me that im in Florence.
my favorite christmas tea! the smell is awsome, and the taste is sweet, fruity and well balanced.
sugar crystals look like big and bright diamonds, and give some extra sweetness to my cup if I decide to pick up a spoon of tea with a crystal in it and put it in the teapot.
Perfect for winter and Christmas time.
