5 Tasting Notes
I love drinking green tea straight. This is a new addition for me, as I’ve been drinking Jade Dragon Mao Feng Green Tea for the past couple of months, which is milder and better (to me) in taste. This one is a bit stronger in taste and color, but I love the health benefits of it and will continue to buy it.
This is a pricier tea and was my first TEAVANA purchase. I bought it for the high antioxidant rating. Compared to my other teas, this one has a mild, yet slightly bitter taste. In the beginning, the bitterness was more noticeable, but I guess I’ve gotten used to it. Although it’s not one of my favorites and I plan to try a lot of other white teas, I could easily purchase more of this sometime in the future. I drink all my teas without adding anything, and I don’t like sweet, sugary drinks.
One of my favorite teas, smooth without any bitterness. It’s very mild. As with all my teas, I drink it straight, adding nothing. I don’t like sweet, sugary drinks. This tea tastes perfect the way it is. The lady at TEAVANA said I can get up to five brews within 24 hours if I rinse it with cold water before putting it in the fridge so I often do that. Usually when I start drinking this tea in the morning, I continuously drink it throughout the day. I rate it at 100% for taste but wish it had more antioxidants. In fact, that’s the reason I just bought TEAVANA’s Gyokuro Imperial. It’s healthier.
