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.
