From Ten Ren

Ten Ren’s Plum Green Tea bags consists of Green Tea blended with dried plums. When steeped, the tea produces a golden yellow hue, a sweet tangy aroma, and a flavorful plum taste. Plum is also known to help comfort sore throats and as well as to quench thirst. It can be enjoyed simply hot or cold.

I picked up this tea from a small teashop in Vancouver’s Chinatown after being offered a sample and being impressed with its strong flavour (being a person who often finds fruit flavoured teas smell lovely, and don’t taste like a whole lot). While it is called Plum Green Tea I’ve always associated the taste more with green melon, and after serving it to several friends I can say this is definitely a love it or hate it flavour. This is a tea that required no additions, especially not sugar/honey, I find the plum flavour to be sweet enough as is, and becomes especially strong as the tea cools.

I find this is one tea you don’t want to over-steep as it can quickly develop an overpowering bitter note that along with the fruit taste can cause unpleasant mouth-puckerage. Mind you I also tend to forget what sort of tea I’m making and pour boiling water over this poor green tea which might account for the tendency towards bitterness. This is a nice tea for people who enjoy green teas, strong fruit teas and especially sweet melon/plum flavours.

Don’t they have a Plum tea on a black base? I know my family use to love that one. I hated it and avoided it, but I don’t know if my taste buds have changed over time. I haven’t drank a plum tea in years.

Feisty

Unfortunately I don’t know about a black tea as the stores where I am now don’t seem to carry Ten Ren teas. Though if they had it I would definitely try it, I think mixed with the stronger tea flavour of a black tea the plum might be less overpowering then in the green and make for a better brew.

This is a sweet tea – a very sweet tea. The first few sips are almost overly sweet but once my taste buds got used to it, the flavor mellowed out and turns slightly salty (did you know plums are salted in Chinese culture?) so it tastes almost like the salted plums I had as a child – salty sweet.

Unfortunately, as a tea, it tastes weird. I’m not sure if I’ll buy this again.
