From Thé Santé

“Full Monty” ginger awakens taste buds leading them to an astringent premium Japan Sencha finish

Country of Origin: China

Region: Hunan

Grade: Japan Sencha style

Altitude: Above 2500 feet above sea level

Manufacture Type: Pan fired
Cup Characteristics: “Full Monty” ginger awakens taste buds leading them to an astringent premium Japan Sencha finish

Infusion: Bright, pale green to yellow, light colored cup

Ingredients: Luxury green tea, Natural dried ginger pieces.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter-fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

The scent is quite vegetal and somewhat savory. Though it was not refreshing, nor did it taste like ginger, I actually didn’t mind this tea. It has a nice roasted taste with slight vegetal notes and a hint of greenness. It has a somewhat full mouth feel with a slight astringency to it. Though I probably wouldn’t purchase the tea again, I found it acceptable and would drink it again.

To me, this Ginger Green from Thé Santé smells, looks, and tastes like a high-quality bancha tea. There is a good dose of ginger here, too, but it does not shroud the excellent tea base.

The liquor is pale greenish yellow and tastes very smoothy and bancha-esque. i am surprised that the tea is described by the company as sencha, not bancha, but it does not really matter in my case, as I happen to love both!

I am very optimistic that a second infusion of these fragrant leaves will produce a stronger ginger flavor perfect for a pitcher of iced tea!
