drank Green Tea Decaf by Bigelow
50 tasting notes

Sometimes I’m in the mood for a cup of green tea, but it’s too late in the evening for a cup of green tea. I think this means I should save the cup of green tea for the next morning, but I try some decaf green teas.

This gave a light, rose-brown liquor. The aroma over the cup is a generic green tea. I caught a quite faint floral aroma in my first sniff.

The first taste from a sip reminds me, strangely enough, of licking envelope glue (but the glue on good envelopes). Beneath, there is some bitter.

This gives me moderate astringency and a nice sweet aftertaste.

I’m still not sure if tea flavor looses “oomph” in the decaffeination or less “oomphy” leaves are used for these teas. I do have to think that this one tastes different than it would without decaffeination. I am on a possibly fruitless search for tastier decaf greens.

We appreciate your review of our Green Decaffeinated….decaf teas do use the same tea leaves as the regular green tea, but once the decaffeination process is said & done, it will change the flavor profile slightly. If you’d like to try our new flavored Green Decaffeinated teas, Green w/Pomegranate, Green w/Blueberry, as well as our Green w/Lemon Decaf, just give us a call to request a sample at 1-888-244-3569

Profile

Bio

I need coffee; I love tea.

I have been learning about tea since I was a teenager, but joining Steepster has accelerated my education.

I gave up soda (completely) this Spring and have re-discovered tea to fill the afternoon void.

I like strong, well balanced tastes. I ferment my own mead, cider, and sauerkraut.

I like green tea, oolong, black tea, flavored black tea, pu-erh, and some tisanes! Oh, and Mate, too!

Lately, I have been most enjoying nutty green teas and oolong teas.
