Recent Tasting Notes
This tea is great! Check out our video-review here:
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.

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!
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.
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 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.
