From Tea Moments

Stunning blend of Sencha green tea with sunflower, rose petals and aroma.

Brewing method:
1 teaspoon of green tea per cup (200ml), water temp. 70-90°C (about 2-3 min. after boiling).

Brewing time: 1-3 min. After brewing separate tea leaves from the infusion.

It is important to not pour milk or cream into, because the casein in the dairy products will bind the antioxidants, neutralizing the beneficial health effects of the tea.

This has lovely large leaves and petals in the mixture which was a nice novelty for me as everything I try lately looks almost blended together and processed.

Colour: Light honey.
Smell: Sweet and bitter

This tastes the same as it smells, you have the slight bitterness of the sencha green tea and the sweetness of the rose petals. If you find green tea too bitter then this would be a nice blend for you as the rose petals give natural sweetness to the sencha green which takes away most of the bitterness and leaves your mouth feeling fresh.

The tea slips down smoothly and remains sweet and light in the after taste. Perfect.

My husband had a taste and said it was like a weak honey. Not his cup of tea but it is for me. :)

From the queue

This one came from the EU Travelling Teabox, round 1. I was originally going to make a fruity white and green blend from the Fru P Christmas calendar when it struck me that if I wanted a tea which was not black, and therefore rather out of my usual tea-sphere, then I really ought to tackle something from the Yet To Be Tried box, a box which appears to be changing its name every time I mention it and which is at present full to bursting!

So I dug through to see what I could find and decided on this flavoured green tea. It has rose petals and sunflower and ‘aroma’. Aroma of what? Fruit? Flowers? Spices? Sweets? Lamb chops? Old wellies? What? It could be anything! Consequently I haven’t the faintest idea what I’m going into here.

Now, I’m not usually very keen on floral teas at all, so my mind is boggling a bit as to why I chose to take some of it. Perhaps it had something to do with the lack of jasmine that made me feel more safe about it. Either way, I took some and now I’m trying it.

It smells quite floral. I’m rather reminded of a bar of scented soap. The scent of the scented soap, but not the soap itself, if you understand what I mean. Luna the Cat seems to find it a mildly interesting smell as she sniffed at it for a fairly long time. This is noteworthy because normally when she investigates my cup she seems to find whichever tea I’m drinking rather stinky and shies away from it. There’s another note in here as well which reminds me strongly of honey. Either the aforementioned ‘aroma’ has something to do with honey or a honey-like product or I have just discovered nasal proof of the fact that bees make honey from flowers. All in all, it’s actually quite an attractive aroma to both Angs and Lunas.

The sencha base is strong in the flavour. I can easily recognise the vegetative flavour of green tea here, but the flowers are fairly in the background. Most floral teas, when I first sip them, it’s like getting a mouthful of perfume, but this is not the case here. It’s first and foremost a green tea and then any flavouring appears to be occurring around the edges and in the background. It becomes rather more pronounced in cooling, but still it isn’t really taking over.

To my vast surprise, I’m finding it actually quite palatable.

from the queue! haha yaaa!

I’ve added it to all the posts in the queue. I don’t know why I didn’t do that from the beginning. This has led me to think I proabably also ought to have noted the day I had them.

Anna

…classic SilAnna mind control.

Anna

Oh, and thank you for being so great about always noting the tea is from the swap box! I added this one to the list – we’re almost at 70 notes now.

Angrboda

Well, I count sort of the same as mentioning who shared something with me. In this case it’s too much of a hassle for me to keep up with who added what, so I’m thinking The Box shared it with me. :)

This one is from KittyLovesTea — thanks so much! The blend has so many flowers! Very pretty blend. It is nice tasting as well. After a three minute steep after waiting for a half hour for the water to cool, this green tea is actually very unique somehow. The flavor is a very subtle almond… but maybe it’s my tastebuds changing, since another tea tasted like almonds that probably shouldn’t have. Or maybe one of the flowers here tastes like almond. Not really roses I can taste. This one is mild tasting but nice. The lightness balances out the extreme of the pu-erh I was drinking before that.
