I got this tea through the Foodie Pen Pal program over at theleangreenbean.com. It’s not a tea that I would normally pick out, so I was intrigued.
It tastes like the green tea that you would get at any random Chinese restaurant. Now granted, I don’t have a really refined palate for green teas, so maybe I’m missing something. Maybe if I had steeped it longer as another reviewer said, then I would have found that sweetness in sweet gale. As it is, it’s pleasant enough, but not something that I would get again.
I drank this last night, mainly out of curiosity. It has an interesting, very vegetal taste to it. Not a huge fan of the overall taste, honestly.
I don’t remember my dreams from last night at all, but I did sleep right through my alarm (unfortunately I don’t think I can blame the tea for that). I got a small amt from my mom’s supply at Xmas, so I only have enough to try it one more time.
I always thought this tea tasted earthy and “ground-like” but not strong, and it is smooth. So I find this tolerable for it’s health benefits (blood cleansing), and that’s why I drink it. Not for taste.
I also love the story of how this company makes their teas. They are also environmentally friendly.
