This tea came to me from Anna, all the way from Italy! Now if that isn’t love, I honestly don’t know what is.
Despite the fact that I don’t typically gravitate towards green teas, I’m always happy when i get some in a swap because it means I can try one and perhaps find one I do like.
The people who described this as smelling of lifesavers are spot on—and because of Anna’s expert packaging, the lifesaver smell was contained really nicely in the little bags, so I was hit with a wall of it as soon as I opened it. When brewed, you can still smell what seems to be candied fruit, and I also get a bit of vanilla.
I mostly taste green tea, although especially when still hot, I can pick up on trace notes of candied fruit in the aftertaste. These seem to subside for me as the tea cools, and then the base seems to just take over. As far as green teas go, I actually don’t dislike this one. I wouldn’t go out of my way to acquire it or anything, but I wasn’t turned off by it, either.
Thanks again, Anna!
