Finishing this up from my stash today…randomly picked one and ended up with this. I still kind of like this…check out my previous review…

The first of my “limerick” teas :o) Quite a mystery, in that the Franklin Tea site doesn’t give me much to go on … but I could have sworn I was tasting some citrus. Orange? Mango? Very light, very enigmatic, very nice.

I think you should write a limerick about each tea… ;)

That’s be a stretch, especially if I have to rhyme “orange,” but I’m never one to run from a literary challenge:

The Franklin Tea Company sells
Green tea that’s as good at it smells.
It’s possible I missed it,
But it think it’s got citrus,
But nothing on their website tells.

You, m’dear, rock! :)

Not bad but not great. The first time I tried this, I was using way too much leaf, and it was so vegetal and astringent that I could barely finish the cup. Today, I actually followed directions, and it was much lighter, and much less like drinking a glass of seaweed puree. i don’t have a good way to check the water temp here at work, so I’ve been winging it – I have noticed that the hotter the water I’ve used, the stronger both in flavor and in astringency.

I think this would work for you if you like strong, simple green teas.

Pumpkin seed seaweed?

I really don’t know where the name comes from.
