3/3 Tealeaves sacheted teas brought home from the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Not by me. Vegas isn’t my cuppa.
Brewed according to the parameters on the back of the packet: 82C(180F), 1 min, good for 2 cups.
To be frank, I’ve had much better green teas in paper teabags. This is low-average end for my tastes. Hot straw, hay, raw almond sweetness, mineral, the vestiges of seaweed and dandelion greens. The marigold flowers make the liquor somewhat bitter. There’s an astringency that doesn’t hit until after the swallow. It feels like there’s a stranglehold on my uvula without any dryness in the throat. Don’t want to finish my cup. Maybe the tea is stale.
While this tea, like Las Vegas, isn’t my cuppa, I do recommend trying Tealeaves’ Organic English Breakfast and Organic Chamomile Blossoms for some high quality sachets.
