I am not very confident with green tea, to me tasting a green is like playing lottery.
I find greens a little capricious especially because of the bitterness we can sometimes get (even if we steep the correct time)

This time I won at the lottery ! Thanks so much to cteresa for permitting me to taste this fantastic blend – I am just surprised you didn’t review it yet-sure you will asap your cold will disappear :)

Delicate and refined green tea base without any hint of bitterness nor astringency.

I get more the fruity notes (berries)and behind, in the supporting role the floral notes (rose is the floral leading note to me and then lavender)

I really enjoyed it – did anyone tried it iced ?

Sounds like an interesting green. I, too, usually find greens too bitter and when fruit is included it is often too tart for my tastes. Rose and lavender sound like a good addition.

I have had it, but did not want to write the taste notes then because i think I did it not quite right and want to try again. Plus for some reason I am in a mood where flavoured greens seem to not quite work for me in the same way as blacks.

My feelings are more or less the same of yours – this is typically an awesome blend, the scent, oh I would so buy it as a perfume.

I also think there was a definite and very interesting thyme note, and rosemary maybe as well? but the thyme was there, which was so unusual but worked so well.

iced, that is a good idea, though not sure if my stash will last long enough for me to try it.

and oh, they make a rouge de provence – which I sniffed and am definitively getting 50 grams from one of these days.

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
