So, I’ve finally realized that I don’t like this. And I think it is partially to blame for why I (and many others, I’m sure) think they don’t like green tea. It leaves my mouth feeling dry and I grimace a bit when I take a sip. I know that a few months ago, I found this to be very pear like and quite tasty but right now I just want it to go away. Will be putting the remains of the tin in the staff room.

A little bitter, not too lychee-y, but the pear definitely stands out in a great way.

I think I probably bought this tea neglecting to read the “Decaffeinated” part, since I’m not a fan of decaf tea. I like herbal, I like tisanes, but teas that taste like they should have caffeine but don’t? My brain gets confused.

The actual flavour of this tea is pleasant. I really like lychee, and I really like green tea, so I figured this tea would either be awful or yummy. Yummy it is. It doesn’t really taste much like I just bit into a lychee, but there is that “something tropical” taste in the background. I don’t know how well actual lychee tastes when its dried, so I won’t hold the artificial flavour against them yet. The green tea itself tasted surprisingly good; I’m always surprised when a bagged tea doesn’t taste like stale grass.

Verdict: won’t re-buy only because it’s decaf and I’m not a fan of that (I either want something with caffeine, or something that doesn’t taste like green tea). But if there was a caffeinated version I’d buy it for sure.

O.K. I just tried this one again at a lower temp and shorter steep time. It definitely smells better – I’m getting a hint of pear.

Taste-wise, it’s not as bitter as before, so that was obviously operator-error, but I still don’t taste any pear, or much at all for that matter. I’ll wait and see what it tastes like after it’s cooled down a bit.

Cool, it’s a bit better, but I’m still not a fan.

For a bagged green tea this isn’t bad. Like that it is decaffeinated. The flavour is noticable but not overwhelming. I don’t steep this tea for very long. It goes bitter fairly quick.
