The flavor is vegetative with a hay-like backnote. Sweet and smooth. Delicious. The vegetative tone is somewhere between grassy and steamed spinach. Not bitter, even when left to infuse in the main chamber of the libre mug.

This tea gets better each time I try it. It’s so delicate. It’s grassy, but in the lightest most pleasant way possible. I do get a slightly sweet hay flavour and scent from it, which takes me back to summers hanging out at the stables.

Also makes me want to experiment with more Chinese greens. I think this is the only one I have.

As I usually do, when Abbi told me that she had an awesome green tea for me to try, I stuck my nose in the air and said, “yeah, not for me”. I was quickly proven wrong. This green tea has such a light and delicate taste. I was bracing myself for a thick, earthy taste and that just wasn’t the case. The initial taste is a very clean, subtle flavor which is then followed up by a smooth, sweet aftertaste.

My second steep on the way out of work was, I think, equally as good. It didn’t seem to lose any of its lustre.

I’m feeling rather downtrodden and have to endure another two hours at a very quiet office.

Libre green in a Libre to the rescue? Perhaps! This is helping me feel less like I forgot to wake up today. It’s nice and sweet and mildly grassy. I think I’ll increase my rating because I am enjoying it even more this time.

I am enjoying a mug of this, brewed in my new Libre Mug! The flavor of the tea is sweet and delicious. Light-bodied, with a clean finish. It has a fresh, vegetative taste – a little grassy but not overwhelming… and reminds me more of vegetables than it does of grass, but there is a little bit of the grass taste in there too. As it cools a little, I am noticing a little bit of hay-like flavor to it too.

Nice. I like this very much. And I LOVE my libre mug!

It’s Green Tea but smaller! And finer! It appears to be cut or shredded or or crushed different than most green tea leaves I have seen. They are very fine and small and fuzzy yet fluffy. It smells like sweet grass or even a little sweet basil-esque. The taste is really good, tho! It’s a more milky-tasting green than I have encountered in quite some time. I like this…I must say…I like this difference in this tea! It’s a nice sweet yet creamy or milkier type green. Nice finish. I would drink this again, most likely purchase if found at a good price, and would recommend to other green tea lovers!

I was sent this tea as a prize along with a new Libre mug so I’m having a good time trying both out.

The packets are cool. It’s a nice format; the package comes with 15 little foil packets of 3 grams each which will be convenient to take to work, etc. However, that comes out to only 45g of tea for $18. So, while these are convenient and pretty I don’t think I would find it worth buying for that price.

The dry leaves smell kind of like fresh-cut grass to me, but I’m thinking that might be what I get from fresh, straight green tea. The infusion after two minutes is a satisfying golden colour.

My first few sips, I’m not getting a lot of flavour but I just ate a piece of dark chocolate which is probably interfering. I think I’ll also steep it longer next time. As I go on, I get more of a feel for it. It’s a very tasty, if very light, green tea. This will be nice to have on hand when I want something simpler than my array of flavoured teas.
