sipdown on this one! Another share from the teafairy. I like that people send me teas that aren’t necessarily up my alley so that i continue to try things that i wouldn’t reach for on my own. Sometimes it’s a rousing success, other times it’s a miss. This one falls somewhere in the middle. It’s a nice enough tea but it doesn’t make me want to restock it, have more or sing it’s praises. But it’s not a bad tea. It just happens to be a green tea. haha. It’s slightly sweet, vegetal…sort of your typical green tea. Thanks for sharing though Teafairy!
Made tuna tataki and soba noodles for supper tonight. I usually have Genmaicha or Sencha with this type of meal but wanted to try something different. This tea is perfect!
What a beautiful green! It’s sweet at first, midly grassy/vegetal, then It releases just a touch of smokiness with a nice astringent finish. I know most poeple don’t appreciate astringency, but strange enough, I love it, especially with food. This type of tea is a real mouth wash! Yet, it’s delicate enough to have on its own.
I will surprise my guests tonight with something new, perfect!
This was the third tea in the Dex exploring the green side courtesy of TheTeaFairy.
I didn’t like this one. Not sure what I did wrong, but it was bitter and astringent. Not sure astringent is the right word, but nope didn’t like it.
(The rest of the sample got tossed with some fruit tisane and cold steeped overnight – it worked like that for me…..)
I am glad I got this tea from Tealux. Having my tea, I checked out other reviews and was surprised it didn’t get a higher rating. I guess it really depends on what we like. Since greens , whites, and oolongs are my favs then it makes sense I would love this tea. I do have to agree there’s nothing so far that makes this stand out from other high quality green teas but it is still a great green tea and one I would restock! I didn’t pick up any bitter taste. It seemed to have a faint buttery flavour with the vegetal. Perhaps my taste buds are not quite as refined as some of the others here since I sometimes have trouble discerning very faint flavours and scents. However, I do know I like this tea and could sip it all morning.
I brewed up a large tetsubin of Cloud’s Green today, using a liberal amount of dried leaves, as a result of which I now have a much clearer concept of this tea than I had the last time I tried. It’s really very good, with a completely distinct personality from other greens, whether Chinese or otherwise. I find the strong vegetable quality very appealing, and I can certainly see reaching for this particular tea to imbibe alongside savory lunch fare. The flavor is not at all like roasted spinach or green beans. This seems more like artichokes to me. Yum!
