I tried this during the EU TTB Round 2 an age back, and only looking through my tries just now noticed that I never write up a note on it. I don’t remember a great deal about it, only that it wasn’t that memorable. Which I guess is self-explanatory seeing as I don’t remember it lol. It was nice enough, green, mild, and a little perfume-y.

MissB passed this on to me ages ago, and as I was digging through my sample bin (seriously half my teas are in there right now), I saw it and decided to go for it.

It’s actually quite lovely. Not quite a “regular” green tea, it’s still grassy and a little spinachy. But it has a really… ergh, darjeeling-y feel to it and is somewhat astringent at the end of the sip. Quite fruity too, for all that it’s getting old.

I definitely prefer darjeelings when treated as a green for steeping, so a darjeeling that is actually a green is really neat to try!

Thank you for sharing. :)

Queued post, written April 18th 2014. I just decided this morning that today would be a green tea day. Seems fitting that the next post in the queue is also a green tea. Queue is only 15 pages long these days, btw!

And another one bites the dust. First time I’ve had it, but I’ve given some of it away so I actually used the rest of it now.

After the oddness that were the Northern Wilds, I rather fancied something different. Something completely different. Green was the answer and this was the first one I found.

It smells kind of citrus-y. A little like lemon-water. Other than that I’m not getting much in the way of scent.

The flavour is completely different from the aroma. I almost came to expect something really mild with a bit of lemon twang, and instead something bit my tongue. There is the lemon, but it’s more pithy than juicy, and this is then followed by something I can best describe as default green. Sort of vegetal but without me being able to really say what sort of greenery I think it is.

I find myself actually rather enjoying this. Imagine that. A Darjeeling that doesn’t have me nose-wrinkling even a little bit. How surprisingly nice!

Green Darjeeling? I had to look it up. It’s as simple as it sounds: same tea bush, it’s just the green isn’t oxidized. Which makes it a green tea (hey, I had to check!) and thus I brewed it correctly. It’s a basic green tea with something apricot-ish in the background. I like it, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to try it. I likely wouldn’t order more, but now I know what to expect with a green darjeeling. Yay!

Another Fru P Kaffe find from Angrboda – thank you again! It’s a lovely thing, being a tea tourist in a country I have yet to get to, and I really, truly appreciate it.
