Oh hai, still probably going to be distracted away from actually writing this. Here’s a green one that we’re having after our walk, and as the boyfriend tend to prefer green that isn’t flavoured my selection is fairly limited. Like… I have two, I think.
I don’t know anything about it, I couldn’t find anything on Adagio’s site about it when I added it, so I’m thinking it’s probably not the newest of teas.
It’s extremely light and sort of pinkish in colour and it made me a little concerned that I hadn’t steeped it enough or should have used more leaf, but there seems to be both aroma and flavour although they’re both pretty delicate.
The boyfriend thinks that the aroma has notes of geranium in it, very faint ones. I can see what he means but I don’t really think it’s stinky enough to be geraniums.
The flavour is pretty delicate, and if you’re used to stronger tasting teas chances are you won’t be able to find any flavour at all. It reminds me a bit of the Daughter Rings from …somewhere that Wombatgirl shared with me. The ones that didn’t have any flavour what so ever.
What little flavour there is there if mostly floral and slightly nutty, but as there is so little of it to be found in this cup, it’s not really anything that really matters much at all.
