This stuff is amazing – I brewed it hot and chilled it to make iced tea and was surprised to find not a single hint of bitterness. I am usually careful not to oversteep, but most green that sits seems to take on just a hair of bitterness or astringency at least…but not this. It is a bit tart and juicy but really doesn’t taste artificial.

My tea tasting today is kind of messed up, we ended up having to get a plumber out here to take a look at our pipes, which is turning out to be a bigger job then we thought, (And alot more $$. Sighs)
So, on to this tea. Maybe it’s due to the crazy right now, but I’m not loving or even liking this tea right now. In fact it’s taking alot of my will power to finish it. It’s not terrible, and thinking I’ll save the rest of the sample for iced tea in a few months. But if it were still current stock, I highly doubt I’d want a bag.

I can barely taste any strawberry, I don’t taste any cranberry which is really disappointing, as I love sweet tart flavors.

Backlog:

I ended up liking this one a lot more than I thought I would. I was pretty sure I’d like it, I like strawberry, I like cranberry and I’m becoming more and more fond of Young Hyson teas (although my first experience with a Young Hyson was not a good one and for a long while there, when I would see a “young hyson” I sort of cowered.)

But this is pretty darned good. The flavors are not competing with one another, they work together very harmoniously. Sweet and tart work nicely together – not too sweet, the tart cuts through some of it, and it’s not so tart that I pucker. I like that balance.

The green tea is pleasant – a vibrant, invigorating green tea base. Brothy smooth texture.

Overall, a good tea.
