Recent Tasting Notes
I haven’t had this one in about a year, but I am on a bit of a green and white tea kick so I gave it a go today. The leaves are large and straight so I compensated by adding a bit extra. Steeped in 175 degree water for 2 1/2 minutes.
This is so very different from Snow Dragon. Where it was light and sweet, very subtle, this green is more forward. The pomegranate lends a delicious fruity/juicy aroma but doesn’t cover up the taste of the tea by any means. Glad I made a whole pot!
I am only just learning to drink green teas. They used to taste like hot water to me! I prefer the buttery ones so far, but I decided to try this flavored green today. The pomegranate aroma is strong in the package, strong while brewing, but not at all overpowering when steeped. It adds nice flavor and interest to this tea. I think non-green drinkers would enjoy it!
