delicious! this is a lively yet relaxing green tea blend with a base that is not too vegetal…only subtly so. come to think of it, it’s almost buttery. i think? i’m not sure, so don’t take me up on that, but whatever it is about this Chinese green, it is very lovely. in fact, if i’m not mistaken….it reminds me of Stash’s Organic Green Tea!! even beneath the citrus and ginkgo here, the tea itself reminds me of that crystal clear & clean taste that never gets bitter.. i really think there’s something to be said for organic tea as it greatly impacts the flavor- in that it’s smoother, cleaner & less astringent than its non-organic counterpart.
anyway, the flavoring in this is wonderful & refreshing. the citrus here is like a lemony-lime and i imagine the ginkgo is imparting a somewhat ‘minty’ impression. altogether, it’s along the lines of a ‘lemongrass’ kind of taste, but not sharp like lemongrass. maybe it’s lemon myrtle! i’m liking this one a lot.
and there’s that nice lemon aftertaste. the liquor is a pale yellow, although it has a bunch of particles floating around. an observation really, not so much a complaint.
well, i’m at the end of my cup and i’m sad to see this one go. it was a pleasant, soothing green tea experience. this came as 1 of 4 free samples included with my order from Harney & Sons. thank you!
