Here’s an odd thing. Just yesterday I said to someone how I just haven’t really been in a green mood at all lately and that everytime I think I want something green, I end up getting a little bit disappointed when I actually taste it because it turned out I’d actually rather have had something black. And then I went and had the malted genmaicha. Which is green. And a cup of sencha. Which is green. And now as I was rummaging through the samples tin, I find this one that TeaEqualsBliss sent to me. Which is green.
Maybe greens are just summerly enough that the warm weather we’ve had for a couple of days are affecting my tea choice?
Either way, this is a very nice one indeed. I’m really liking the way rhubarb just fits the tea in the most surprising way. It’s all fresh and interesting and a bit creamy in texture, weirdly. I think it’s because rhubarb is acidic and the green tea it’s based on has a sort of citrus-y feel to it too.
I really like this as a flavour here. It’s not something I’m going to go out and find, but if I happened across it, I might decide to get some.
