“An Ode to Tea” Alphabet Challenge – E
So this is from my rather large Harney order near the end of last year. Don’t ask my why I thought it was wise to buy five tins of teas that I’d never tried before… (facepalm)
Anyway. This is a citrus and spearmint green tea. Honestly, it’s a bit bland? I’m not sure if I didn’t use enough leaf or what, but I’m not getting a lot of citrus. More like a hint of grapefruit and that’s about it. The spearmint is definitely there, but still quite mild.
So really, I’m just getting a mildly spearmint-y generic green tea. It’s not an unpleasant base, I assume it’s a sencha by the look, and it does have that dry grassy flavor to it. Needless to say, not very impressive. Well, I have plenty of leaf to try it again, ha ha…
Flavors: Citrus, Dry Grass, Grass, Smooth, Spearmint
