This sounded so interesting that I simply had to try it even though I’m not generally a fan of Green Tea ..

It’s a wonderful looking mix with a unique savoury aroma and taste .. Very vegetal, and dare I say even a little ‘fishy’ ? The second steep was my preferred, with more pronounced nuttiness .. But again, Green really isn’t my thing and though some do grow on me this one hasn’t ..

Also, unless you use a Very Fine strainer (I’ve tried a few but none avoided this) you will end up with dust at the bottom of your cup ..

Bio

For many years I only drank coffee, and the occasional herbal tisane .. But eventually I got sick of people complaining that I had no ‘real tea’ in the house so I bought a box of cheap tea bags and remembered WHY I didn’t drink the stuff!

And so life went on until the day an English friend invited me to visit her home .. She made us a pot of (loose leaf) Earl Grey to enjoy in the garden – and finally I’d found a Tea that I truly wanted to drink!

Now-a-days my favourite alternates between home-made Masala Chai, Lady Grey with a few extra drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Dessert Flavoured Blacks, and my latest interest is Dragon Peal Jasmine ..

any less = I wouldn’t drink it again
70 – 80 = Nice, but there’s better
80 – 90 = Mmm, Yummy Stuff ..
90 – 100 = Unique, Stand-Outs, & Can Not Be Withouts!
