My mother gave me this and another tea after she found them in an epic cupboard-cleaning at her house. She didn’t recognize them (she doesn’t drink loose-leaf) and thought I might have bought them – however I’m SURE I’ve never seen these teas before in my life, so who knows how they got in the cupbord in the first place! The only labeling on both was just the name of tea, however I recognized the label-style as coming from the local coffee shop, so it’s a start. Still it’s kind of weird and random. cue ominous music

I also have not the faintest idea how old they are or even if they’re still any good. Green tea in particular have a pretty short shelf-life I’ve heard (?). They weren’t in a sealed container, just in a wax-lined paper sachet. When I opened this bag the flavour didn’t seem too bad, not dusty or stale, just rather strawberry-ish. There were real pieces of dried strawberries mixed in which I like, I’ve ranted often enough about how much I hate teas that just have the mysterious ‘natural/artifical flavouring’.

The taste is…not terribly strong. It’s slightly sweet and strawberry-flavoured, and slightly nutty-tasting. Most however it mostly tastes like what I’ve always thought of a ‘normal’ green tea tasting. It’s not strong, which is probably its age showing, but it isn’t harsh or unpleasent either.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
