drank Green Tango by Tea Forte
558 tasting notes

This is the first of three samples I received that I am trying from Tea Forte.

I love Tea Forte’s packaging for their bagged teas. They are in a nylon/mesh bag, with a bendable leaf that sprouts out of the top of the bag (which allows you to hook it over your cup while steeping).

The leaves look to be a good size within the teabag, and they have room to unfurl once the water hits them. I steeped this cup in 170F water for two and a half minutes. The wet leaves have a hint of sweetness to them, but I’m not getting much else in the aroma.

Green Tango steeps up a bright marigold with a greenish tinge. Getting the slightest sweetness to the taste with a bit of hay on the aftertaste. This is a very subtle tea. The cup finished quickly, but nothing memorable in drinking this. I’m not sure if I’d purchase this tea, but I certainly wouldn’t refuse a cup from a friend.

Did you receive the samples from the company or did someone send it to you? If it was the former, mind sharing with us how? :)

I wish it was from the company directly. It was from a box of miscellaneous samples from a tea review blog “its all about the leaf” that I’m finally getting around to reviewing teas from. I’m a procrastinator :(

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
