I am getting back on the Green Tea Horse with this one :) This silken sachet was included as a freebie in my latest Harney & Sons delivery.

The green tea is pretty palatable. Not bitter and gentle in flavor. I’m not tasting much citrus, just a little lemon candy taste, and the ginkgo tastes like sage or some similar savory herb. If I had to drink green tea, this is a nice one to drink. Would I ever purchase this? No way! Medicine, medicine, medicine! Maybe if I were sick, but I have an herbal that has this lemony medicine taste that I actually like better.

Well, one thing is for sure. My feelings for green teas have not changed any in the past year! I like ‘em French or froofed up the wazoo with cherry blossom or jasmine, but that’s it!

Do you like Bangkok?

The day I tried it, my hot pot at work broke, and I forever associate the two, even though one has nothing to do with the other! I do want to pop some samples in my next order of other H&S flavored greens because I felt very cheerful after my cup – it’s such a nice afternoon pick up!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
