I wanted a green tea this morning, since the hot water dispenser at work doesn’t get quite hot enough for black tea. I grabbed my little sample tin of this. I have only one more spoonful of the dry leaves left after this, so I might polish it off this afternoon. Hooray for reducing the stash! Brewed in my Lock & Lock tea bottle.

Nice and light, but not the best pairing with my oatmeal with bananas. The oatmeal is really obscuring my ability to taste a green tea. Black tea with my oatmeal is a better plan, and since I have steel cut oats in jars ready for the rest of this week’s breakfasts, I guess I’d better just heat water in the microwave the next two days.

I digress… Emerald Needle: Light, dare I say airy? Not too astringent, but that might be the oatmeal talking. I like it, and I know it works well iced. This might need to go on my shopping list, though I might try another company’s version to expand my experience a bit.

Oh hai, still probably going to be distracted away from actually writing this. Here’s a green one that we’re having after our walk, and as the boyfriend tend to prefer green that isn’t flavoured my selection is fairly limited. Like… I have two, I think.

I don’t know anything about it, I couldn’t find anything on Adagio’s site about it when I added it, so I’m thinking it’s probably not the newest of teas.

It’s extremely light and sort of pinkish in colour and it made me a little concerned that I hadn’t steeped it enough or should have used more leaf, but there seems to be both aroma and flavour although they’re both pretty delicate.

The boyfriend thinks that the aroma has notes of geranium in it, very faint ones. I can see what he means but I don’t really think it’s stinky enough to be geraniums.

The flavour is pretty delicate, and if you’re used to stronger tasting teas chances are you won’t be able to find any flavour at all. It reminds me a bit of the Daughter Rings from …somewhere that Wombatgirl shared with me. The ones that didn’t have any flavour what so ever.

What little flavour there is there if mostly floral and slightly nutty, but as there is so little of it to be found in this cup, it’s not really anything that really matters much at all.
