A bit bitter, and pretty weak too. I’ve had this tea for a while and I never drink it. I was hesitant to even try any other kind of green tea until I had Japanese Green Tea. This pales so much in comparison! It probably could be doctored, I suppose. Either way I won’t be drinking it again. Maybe I’m just not a green tea person.
28 Tasting Notes
I might have over-steeped this since it came out a bit strong, though I think that is needed to separate it from ‘regular’ tea. The flavor makes me think of molasses for some reason, though it’s not molasses-y at all. That’s just the only flavor that comes to mind. It must be the combination of plain creamer and the tea itself.
Much richer than regular green tea. I added a few teaspoons of sugar, but since green tea seems to be naturally more bitter than black tea, I never try to get it very sweet. Now that I’ve had this, I definitely prefer it to other green teas.
I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of it before this year since it’s such a popular tea. I tried it today, and it was good, but I probably shouldn’t have left the teabag in the cup as I was drinking it, because the spices were stronger than I expected.
