Just finished watching District 9 and thought it was time to change up the tea I was drinking. I realized I haven’t had this in a while (and I’ve only had it once) so I pulled it out. It smells a lot more floral than I remember. Taste-wise, it’s odd. A little tart, a little floral. When I take a big sip, I get a raw, sharp green veggie taste (hello artichoke) and the aftertaste is slightly vinegar-y. The front taste of each sip is also odd. Almost a powdery floral taste. Very weird and this one bit of taste just doesn’t really go for me.
So yeah, dropping the score on this one just a little. It’s odd and go Adagio for attempting the weirdness because you never know until you try, right? This isn’t a great tea, but if I was in a weird mood, I think this would fit pretty well. Not a tea to drink when looking for a lot of subtlety because it isn’t a subtle tea and if you look too hard, you end up with powdery floral. But hey, want a green to smack you around just a little bit and give you something unexpected? This would do it!
