120 Tasting Notes
in the bag it smells like trident strawberry gum. steeped it smells like hot apple cider.
The taste is very interesting. I taste the trident strawberry gum but the after taste leaves your mouth with a mint flavor. Not mint flavoring but a mint leaf, like a mojito.
It is not bad. Not my favorite.
Hot – nice light smooth fruity flavor. not much more to say about it since it was discontinued.
Iced – my wife was not happy about this being discontinued. We had to go and restock b/c she asked me to make her it Iced every day. She is not a tea drinking but she loved this. We normally just had it with no sugar and it was good. but the last time we added a little sugar and it was great. the sugar made all of the favors pop.
I think it is important to try a tea couple of times before you comment on it. For me this tea is a prefect example of why i say this.
As i have said before, green tea is not my favorite. When i first started drinking this tea i did not like it at all b/c i felt it was way to grassy for me. i made it a couple more times and could not finish the cup. Each time making it differently so that i could try to get it to good for me. It was way to grassy for me.
Well i did. It is still not my favorite tea but it is okay. It is grassy. It is a smooth grassy taste. If you are a green taste drinker then you will probably like this tea.
this has a wet grass smell. I think this is okay. I am not a huge green tea fan. I do not really care for the grassy taste But this Green Pekoe does not have a strong grass taste. it does not really have mush of a flavor. I think this is good for someone who does not really like green tea or need a stepping stone to green tea.
this was my first pu-erh. I saw it at Whole Foods, and figured i would give it a try. i liked it. it is earthy. I like that it as a strong flavor. It is nice to have them as little discs. When i am at work (or at home) and i do not want to measure out a teaspoon of tea, it is nice to put this out and know you have the correct amount of tea.
