From Nabo

An organic green tea with the taste of apple, roasted rice, cardamom and a little vanilla. This is a musty green tea, where the roasted rice takes center stage at first, but a few mouthfuls in, the cardamom takes up more space. This type of tea goes well with food, maybe something for those of you who are a bit frozen and want to try drinking something warm with lunch? We really recommend you to try it!

List of ingredients: Green tea*, apple pieces*, green tea with roasted rice*, cardamom*, lemongrass*, natural vanilla flavor, natural cardamom flavor, marigold*. *From controlled organic cultivation.

Nabo 2022 Advent Day 2: Grynet

Another winner from Nabo! Lex described it as “phenomenal”.

We made this one into a teapot and it did not disappoint. I really enjoy genmaicha, but then with a whisper of cardamom, wow. I found the cardamom was more prevalent in scent as opposed to taste, so it was perfect for us. Delightful!

P.S. Not sure if anyone knows this, but Swedes love their cardamom and I’m here for it.

Hm. What I did wrong? Steeping too mcuh leaf in small volume?

My cardamom was more like a piercing scream ha ha ha. I enjoy cardamom but dayum!

Courtney

Hahah, maybe it was just me being the outlier here!

I dunno, Lexa loved it too! You can’t both be crazy… ;)

Nabo Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 2

So I was trying to determine what the name of this tea is. Google claims “grynet” means “the grit” (LOL) but somehow I doubt that’s it. The best I can guess is “gryn” appears to mean “grain”, which makes sense given this is a genmaicha. So something about grains. (shrugs) Anyone know a Swede? XD

Okay, so the dry tea straight up smelled like nail polish remover to me. I’ve heard people say that about teas with apple in them before, but I’ve never experienced it. So that was weird.

Steeped up, it’s mostly cardamom to me. It punches me in the face at the beginning of the sip, and then once it subsides a bit I can start to taste the other flavors. There’s a fruity tartness from the apple, and a touch of genmai toastiness. And then at the end, I get a bit of that nail polish remover again. Not sure if it’s just the cardamom interacting with something else or what. I actually don’t taste the green tea at all, but it does give body.

This one is quite imbalanced IMO, too much cardamom and then there’s that odd chemical nail polish note. I like the idea of a genmaicha with apple and cardamom, but the taste of this doesn’t really fit that description.

I haven’t put the tranlsation to parentheses, because the translation sounded wrong.

And I wasn’t a fan of its flavor as well. I didn’t wanted to be so critical, but nail polish sounds like that.

I have absolutely no idea what this should be like. The ingredients sounded like a weird mix.
And somehow… it is weird even when sipping. A little sweet tea, strong genmaicha, base somehow mineral and seaweed for me.
Cardamom was strong as well, adding another strange element to this tea.

I will keep this one without rating. Because it’s somehow too strange to me.

It does sound very strange! Could give the garlic tea I had the other day a run for its money XD
