5 Tasting Notes

The package suggests brewing for 7-10 minutes. That is way too long since this is a green tea. That amount of time seems to be needed to hydrate the pieces of fruit. But then the tea is too bitter and overpowers the fruit flavor. I found it worked best with a 3-minute brewing time. I will try letting the tea soak in cool water first. This should help with getting a more even flavor distribution by hydrating the fruit pieces without the tea overpowering the subtle fruit flavors. Ok, just tried that. I think the green tea is just bitter. No joy!

I can’t taste the ginger in this tea. The pineapple flavor stands out and I believe it’s because of the added pineapple flavoring. I tasted the pieces of dried apple/pineapple and they were essentially tasteless. I have tried 3 of Greenfield’s teas and I haven’t been overly impressed. The packaging and descriptions are nice but the teas just aren’t great. I like my teas without sweetener or milk. This may be a good tea with lots of honey and milk but if I have to do that to make a tea taste “good”, then I really don’t need that tea.

Just to add, I bought my teas on sale. They were discontinued. The store told me the Greenfield teas were not good sellers. Would I recommend this tea? Kind of a yes/no/maybe kind of thing.

I couldn’t taste the lemon in this tea. The Ceylon tea is good but since it is sold as having the flavor of “juicy lemon”, what’s the point if one can’t taste the lemon?

I really liked this tea. The bergamot was just right and I love bergamot!

This tea did not have enough bergamot flavoring for my picky palate.
