I used to think I didn’t like green tea. TeaVivre’s green tea selection has changed my mind. Now, if I don’t have a sample to review, I am most likely going to grab a Chinese green for my own enjoyment. This one is cool right from the start. The leaves are dark, long, and spindly. The smell today is of hay, cocoa, and maybe a touch of malt. No one else noted this, so I thought maybe I imagined it. Steep it up and the small leaf turns green and with a steamed vegetable scent. The liquor is sparkling clear with a light yellow green tint. Sipping brings out a third set of flavors. I still smell the hay and cocoa but do not taste it. The taste I find hard to describe. It is a bit sweet, with a bite bordering on a good bitter. It is not exactly grassy but it tastes green. It’s kind of vegetal, buttery with a touch of grain or nut. This is a clean and refreshing green. Two thumbs up.
