Recent Tasting Notes
There isn’t a whole lot to say about this tea. It’s your generic Chinese “Sencha” mixed in with a whole lotta lemongrass and a little lemon and orange peel.
It doesn’t taste like green tea at all, not even the most generic kind. It tastes almost overwhelmingly of lemongrass. If you really hunt for it you can pick out the lemon and orange peel.
Terrible iced. You get a bitter mess with a hint of lemongrass. I brewed iced according to package directions (3tsp/8oz).
Flavors: Lemon Zest, Lemongrass, Orange Zest
I actually really enjoy this tea. I think it’s just delicious. The lemongrass and lemon/orange really comes out, and the bergamot is not overpowering. I just add a small bit of splenda to balance out the bitterness, and it works out wonderfully.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Lemon, Lemongrass, Orange
I wish I had realized there was bergamot in this when I bought it… I am not a big fan of bergamot, I do drink it occasionally when I’m in the mood but prefer a subtle dose.
There is a lot going on in this blend already with fruitiness, it has lemon peel and lemongrass which I both like. But the bergamot overwhelms this and makes it more bitter and drying in my opinion… and soapy. I tried adding a teaspoon of coconut sugar but that didn’t really improve things. I think this is going in my pile of stuff to give away or compost. Wah… Yuk. This is undrinkable in my opinion.
