If you like your green tea to smell and taste like rancid butter, you may enjoy this. Otherwise, skip it. I bought this because it sounded interesting; I like green tea lattes and found the idea of a milky green tea without actual milk intriguing. From the moment I opened the bag, though, I knew this wasn’t for me. The sour milk/rancid butter odor did not morph into anything creamy and delicious, and the taste was just as repugnant. Brewing it for different intervals, at different temperatures didn’t make any difference in the nasty spoiled milk taste. I wound up throwing this out, and I rarely do that with any tea, but this was just dreadful.

Bio

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
