7 tasting notes

Smelling the leaf bag is almost overwhelming, the mint over powers every other scent. Strong veggie/mint flavor, not something I enjoy honestly. This might taste pretty good to some other people, but for myself I doubt I’ll even use another bag. I may try resteeping the bag to see if it dulls down the flavor, but for the most part I’ll either trash or give away the rest of this tea. Now I remember why I don’t like green tea’s.

DON’T TRASH IT! No matter how bad a tea is, throwing it away physically hurts me. lol. There’s this thread http://steepster.com/discuss/267-take-it-away if you want to get rid of it. Not liking greens is fine, but the mint is so strong it’s really unfair to compair it to an unflavored green. It’s like comparing apples to oranges lol. Good luck on finding it a new home. I do not think that will be hard at all here ;)

Lol ok, sounds fair enough. I did somewhat enjoy the China Green Tip from Tazo. I’ll see if anyone wants to take it off my hands :)

Bio

I’m very new to tea, but want to learn as much as possible about it. So far I’ve stuck with oolong tea’s since I’ve never really been a fan of green or black tea’s. Haven’t tried any white tea that I can recall, but in time I’m sure I will. Its really hard to find leaf tea where I live unless I order it online or drive to a bigger city.

Work in a cubicle farm, love instrumental musics (ex. Ayako by Guitar and Storm by Yoshida Brothers etc.), enjoy online games though with my two newborn sons It’s hard to find time. I love Japanese and Chinese culture almost to the point of obsession. Their work ethic and devotion to every day tasks is something I wish all countries could employ. Hope to one day visit and maybe live in Rural Japan for a few years.
