Lapin Yrtti Oy

Recent Tasting Notes

I can’t believe I have missed this out from all my notes. I got this at the same time as the other Lapin Yrtti Oy tea that I logged some time ago. A couple of my friends brought it back with them when they came back from holiday in Scandinavia in early 2008 and I have had it ever since. This is a nice mild green tea. It’s very mild in flavour and the cloudberry flavour is mild too. It recommends to steep for 10 mins but I am a bit flexible and rarely wait that long.

Lapin Yrtti Oy has to be one of the coolest looking tea vendor names I’ve ever seen. It doesn’t have anything to do with rabbits, does it?

Don’t know. I don’t know any finnish I’m afraid. I’ve always hoped so, although yrtti oy doesn’t have any connotations to me

‘Yrtti’ means ‘herb’

‘Lapin’ means ‘of Lapland’

‘Oy’ means ‘limited company’

I have a Finnish friend who likes lots of tea, although she’s never used this company before she has decided to try them!

Grinnyguy

Heya ellie! Glad you could make it. And thanks for the info, I never knew that! Did you have to ask your finnish friend to find out?

takgoti

Oh sweet. Good to know!

EllieTea4Me

Well, she didn’t so much have to find out what it meant, she just translated it for me. She translates short stories from Finnish into English too.
I personally introduced her to Cinnamon and Orange Rooibos and her tea related activities haven’t been the same since….

I used my tight mesh infuser today so didn’t get too much tea powder get into my tea (it really is quite powdery more than leafy). Very much enjoyeed it, more than I’ve enjoyed it for a while, so I had a couple of pints

Brought back from holiday by some friends, I was initially put off by it looking a bit like cloudy pond water. But it is a nice gentle blend with anise and bilberry taste well balanced with the taste of the tea. You can’t drink this with milk – I did try it once but it wasn’t pleasant!
