drank Clear Green Orient by Lipton
325 tasting notes

I do not like this at all. It is theoretically green tea “orient” mix. The packaging has star anise on it, and they are right, it tastes overpoweringly of anise ( not sure what kind) and a liquorice type of smell. I hate liquorice. After the liquorice there is mint (?) in a toothpasty way, too strong and too artificial and leaving a toothpasty after-tasting clean feeling on the mouth (I like that for toothpaste, for green tea no). Maybe some cinnamon as well. Green tea taste almost unnoticeable. I really did not like it.

PS – about brewing temperature, the packaging says to use boiling, even if it´s green. Well, I took their word for it, but I think no brewing temperature or steeping times could make this palatable for me.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
