108 Tasting Notes
Drinking this again this morning, and trying to find words to describe it. It’s not like any of the Japanese green teas I’ve had. It’s certainly not like the junk you find in generic “green tea” bags. It’s light, a little sweet, subtle. A little creamy, perhaps. Not grassy or toasty at all.
I picked this one up at the recommendation of one of the ladies who works at David’s Tea and am BLOWN AWAY! I’ve never had a Korean tea that I can remember, and I’m really, really in love with this one. The taste is just amazing! This may be my favourite green tea of all time.
I thought this was black chai when I picked it up, but realised too late that it’s herbal! Ah well … it smells quite rich and decadent. I think I like it more than the Four O’Clock Chocolate Spice, which has similar ingredients. I would love to try it with some vanilla soy milk, as I have a feeling that would make it absolutely delicious. I don’t know if regular milk would work in this, but I can never bring myself to add cow’s milk to herbal tea. It just seems wrong to me. ;) A touch of sweetener of some kind would probably go very well, too.
Gorgeous! The leaves are obviously fresh, as they’re that lovely deep emerald green colour you only find with really fresh green tea. It also tastes amazing – as only fresh green tea can. A little bit sweet, a little bit creamy even, and re-steepable. Delicious.
