From Arbor Teas

Selectively harvested, processed, and roasted to accentuate its naturally sweet character, the Organic Sweet Roast Green Tea has large, flat, broken leaves. Easy to prepare and easy to drink, the Sweet Roast is a popular drink in Hawaiian Farmer’s Markets and is delicious hot or iced. The flavor of this organic tea is most significantly affected by the roast. As the last step in the production process, the roasting occurs after the leaf is already dried and serves to highlight the leaf’s sweetness as well as reduce the astringency and add a slight roasted quality that hints at grilled sweet corn. The wet leaves smell of sweet hay and create a brothy, vegetal cup that has a bright note felt at the back of the throat.

This flavor of this tea is very delicate and unlike any other green tea I’ve tried be it from China, Japan, or elsewhere. It has roasted notes that come out stronger when the tea is served hot and sweet notes that I noticed more as the tea cools. While this didn’t remind me of a green tea I had tried, it did faintly resemble the corn silk tea one of my friend frequently enjoyed. It has the same roasted, yet sweet flavor that I’m finding in this tea. It is certainly a distinct flavor, one I’ve found I rather enjoy.

nice, I have been wanting to try this one myself!

Short Sorceress

I highly recommend it. My entire sample was gone in under two days, which is unusual for me. I tend to enjoy more of a variety, but this tea had me hooked from the first sip.

I’m not a big fan of Green Teas, but this one is quite nice. It has a subtle sweetness to it and the roasted flavor also adds a bit of smokiness. I went through the sample quickly, so I’ll have to update this once I’ve ordered more =) Definitely worth a try
