drank Green Tea by Pukka
1856 tasting notes

The front of the envelope that the teabag came in says, “organic whole leaf tea for a smoother flavor.” With a pedigree like the one found on the back of the envelope, I was expecting a little more, but it isn’t bad.

I made two steeps of about six ounces each using 170 F water for two minutes. I did taste a sip at 30 seconds but still basically just had hot water. I guess since this is a blend and in a bag, it takes a little more time. There is a hint of grain, and a sharp but light celery taste. I don’t think I would go out of my way to get more of this one, but if you want an everyday green to keep in a desk drawer at work this probably isn’t a bad choice.

It is a bit odd because I occasionally get a sour taste, other times a sweet aftertaste, then an oat taste…but it isn’t consistent. And all this in just the same 12 ounces of tea.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
