From A C Perch's

Green organic USAid Fair Trade tea from Bolivia. The taste is clean, smooth and slightly sweet, similar in style to a Japanese green.

Still trying to get through this at work. Our work-selection are still “stuff we would never get around to drinking otherwise.” When first I had this one I thought it was quite pleasant. Now, each time I have it, I like it a little less, and have as a consequence adjusted the points heavily downwards. I’m not sure what is causing this phenomenon, but I know that not all of it is due to the fact that it’s just not a very work-friendly tea, because I had the same experience when we had some of it at home still. But it definitely isn’t work-friendly. We have found that anything that is not black and flavoured doesn’t seem to be going well at work. I believe it has to do with the way we drink it there and the way circumstances dictate that we brew. In a 1 liter thermos, using a paper bag, unable to control water temperature and frequently oversteeping as we just don’t always have time to do something about it when it’s finished. Only flavoured black really seems to be showing up right in those circumstances, borderline abusive as they are. I think it’s because the flavouring of the tea hides the taste of the paper, and non-flavoured leaf is just wasted there. We have found few that didn’t just turn boring this way.

Anyway, what I was saying was that we are still trying to get rid of this one among others. Today I learned that it does not take kindly to being steeped for two hours and ten minutes. It was fine in the beginning. A bit strong, yes, but still okay. Once it started cooling down however… WHEW! Hello, Mr Astringency!

On the upside, though, but the time I got around to remembering to remove the bag of leaves from the thermos, it had turned a most lovely bright orange, which would have amused me greatly in most other sorts of tea. In this one it was merely slightly disturbing if I am to be completely honest. So two hours plus worth of steeping? Don’t do it again, self. Ever.

So I have been really quite angry today that I have all this great new tea that I can’t try due to infection of doom whose symptoms keep rotating (though today and yesterday’s rattling cough are new and yes I’m going to see the doctor tomorrow).

After dinner I decided to brew up a pitcher of Silver Yin Zhen Pearls, but alas it tasted awful perhaps partially due to a bit of soap and chai residue but mostly I think because it was an old tea from a clearance gift set, never cared for the pearls anyway.

So after that I thought anything would taste good and proceeded to brew this one from Angrboda, which I had actually measured out earlier in the day. I’m not liking it and I’m not sure why. It bares no resemblance to the pearls, that was all musty and stale perfume, this is fishy and metallic and calls to my mind shark (no idea). Might try a resteep but could just be my tastebuds being all wonky, should probably just go back to my throat coat :sigh:

Good luck at the doctors!

Get well soon!

Last time I drank a new tea when feeling sick I thought it was metallic and disgusting. Fast forward to a time when I wasn’t sick, and I loved it! So that could be partially to blame. Feel better soon!

Invader Zim

I hope you feel better soon and that you have enough to retry this one with better results.

Autumn Hearth

Thanks folks! Sinus infection, antibiotics to the rescue!

TeaBrat

sinus infection… ugh! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Angrboda

Bleh, that doesn’t sound very nice. I’m fairly ambivalent about this one myself. I liked it the first time I had it, but have liked it a little bit less every time I’ve had it since without being able to put a finger on anything in specific. I hope for you that it’s just the illness messing it up for you. If it isn’t and you still have some leaf left, feel free to bin it.

You know how everyone keeps saying that “this puerh tastes like fish tank, but in a good way” or “this tastes like dirt, but in a good way”.

Well, this tastes like salty, slightly off butter, but in a good way. Vegetially sweet smelling, but not sweet tasting at all.

I’m not thrilled with this tea, but I could see where green tea lovers would really love it.

Thanks for the tea Angrboda, this was good to try.

“…..but in a good way” lol! It’s so true! :)

Angrboda

I’m glad you liked it (to a degree anwyay). It was definitely something that grew on me as well over a period. I didn’t actually really appreciate it until I realised that I generally tend to prefer japanese green over chinese green and this leans against a sencha like flavour.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss For sending me some of this tea to try!

This is really good. Sweet, buttery, with a clean taste. I brewed it in my Kati tumbler, but, I think next time I’ll brew it in my gaiwan.

A lovely, lovely tea!

Another Angrboda Tea! Thanks!

Light in color and in scent. It’s a nice thirst quenching type green with no funky after taste. Semi-Sweet-Floral, almost. Maybe a bit nutty as well. I agree that it’s a ‘clean’ type taste and I like it!
