If you like your green tea to smell and taste like rancid butter, you may enjoy this. Otherwise, skip it. I bought this because it sounded interesting; I like green tea lattes and found the idea of a milky green tea without actual milk intriguing. From the moment I opened the bag, though, I knew this wasn’t for me. The sour milk/rancid butter odor did not morph into anything creamy and delicious, and the taste was just as repugnant. Brewing it for different intervals, at different temperatures didn’t make any difference in the nasty spoiled milk taste. I wound up throwing this out, and I rarely do that with any tea, but this was just dreadful.
Au Lait Verde
A beautifully unusual combination of rare Chinese green tea blended with the sweet, creamy taste of milk makes this an exceptional tea. It features lily blossoms and forget-me-not petals as a soft, flowery undertone to this delicious green tea.
How to Prepare
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8 ounces of water. Heat water to 175 degrees and steep for 1-2 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Green tea, milk, forget-me-not blossoms and lily blossoms. This tea contains milk.
