I need some advice from green tea drinkers on what to try next. What’s your go-to green tea these days?
I’m getting a little excited because I’m pretty close to having at least tasted all of the green teas in my stash. Not counting matcha, that is.
Of course, that doesn’t mean I’ll be sipping them all down any time soon, but it does mean I can start thinking about what I might want to get more of and what else I might want to try.
I’d love to have input on what I ought to try when I’m close enough to order, which should be in the next few months at this rate.
So again I ask — what is your go-to green tea? What shouldn’t I miss when I come out of lock down?
I have been enjoying the Silk Road teas in my stash. This one has a sweet, hay-like fragrance in the dry leaf that replicates itself in the steeped tea’s aroma. The tea is golden yellow and clear. It has a sort of rosy tint that is interesting.
The tea has a vegetal flavor that reminds me of asparagus. I just had some for lunch, and it was amusing to be reminded of my lunch so quickly after drinking this tea. I swear, it was funnier than I made it sound.
The aftertaste is nutty, a little like raw almonds.
It’s a gentle, happy green tea.
