Another one off single tea bag to try. I do like the Nordqvist tea bag sachets as they are usually covered with pretty and bright floral patterns, this one is a mixture of light and medium green colours over the top of each other to make flowers. :)
On the back of the sachet it stated to use boiling water (which I found odd for a green tea) and to steep for two minutes and that is precisely what I have done.
Smell: Green tea but with sweet elements, almost like sugar
Taste: Similar to the smell, it’s green tea with sweet tones that taste somewhat vanilla(ry). Despite the high water temperature I don’t detect any real bitterness of the green tea so it’s possible that the sweet flavours mask it out. I can’t taste the strawberry or the lemon, they just taste like generic sweet, sugar…almost like sweets but without the flavour.
This might be the sort of thing that a young child or teenager would like as an introduction to green tea but for an old hand at green’s it’s nothing special. I would prefer a natural unflavoured cup rather than this sweet one. Still it’s not disgusting and I will be fine to finish this cup but overall it’s disappointing.
