drank Green Tea by Salada
8 tasting notes

A few years back, I did a review on here. But I haven’t posted since and have read a lot of reviews, which has inspired me to start. I really liked a guy named scottteaman, but he hasn’t posted in around four years.

Anyway, this is the tea that got me started on tea a little over fifteen years ago. I bought a box on a whim and it quickly became a nightly ritual.Oddly, I would often watch an episode of Cheers while drinking it and relax a little. It was good to laugh and have this to sip on. I highly doubt many people associate Cheers with tea, but I do. My mom soon started drinking tea as well.

Very quickly I would move on to loose green teas from China and then Japan. It was soon forgotten. But a while back I bought a box on a whim again to see how it compared. It’s noticeably stronger than most green teas. It’s clearly not fancy, but it is good. I try and always keep some on hand when it calls to me. I think it goes is perfect with Chinese food. A few months ago I even brewed a cup and watched an episode of Cheers like I used and it felt the same. It’s enjoyable and I have memories of it. Really, you can’t beat that.

Drinking tea is 50% present-moment sensory impressions; 50% nostalgia. (Got my mom-in-law a small box of Salada as a stocking stuffer a few seasons back; she loved it so much, you’d think it was that pricey 20-year-old stuff!)

That’s very true! Having great memories with tea is a large part of it for me. Whether with friends or family, or alone after work with a cup and a shortbread, I associate it with relaxing and being happy.

I will be posting again after almost 4.5 years, maybe in about a week or so. Great review QC. :)
