What words come to mind when I think about Kokomo Green… poison? drain cleaner? A little bit of column A, a little bit of column B? Seriously though, this tea was undrinkable both hot and cold. I didn’t like the smell of the dry leaf (which, granted, doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t like the brew… I love DT’s Secret Weapon but I never want to smell it again). Brewed, it smelt exactly like perfume meets some sort of cleaning product and it just so happened that it tasted that way too. VERY flowery, little fruit. Green tea base created this strange vegetal background flavour. I had to dump the cup after drinking about half. It took me 2 hours to get the smell away from me, my kitchen and my steeper.

It’s a shame that you can’t rate teas in the negative.

Bio

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
