drank Green Needle by Adagio Teas
21 tasting notes

A nice tea, but it suffers from the same fate as so many greens (and a few blacks) in my book: Its just meh.

The color isn’t overwhelming. Its a light green with a slight hint of brown.

And the flavor, its light. In my greens I’m looking for either a nice sweetness or a slight bitterness. This tea seems to be trying for the former, but just ends up too weak really make much of an impact. Instead, it ends up reminding me of a white tea.

A good tea. Possibly a good tea for someone looking to try a green tea for the first time, or someone who finds the green’s they’ve tasted to be too bitter or grassy, but not the right tea for me.

I brew most of my greens for 1 minute for the first infusion and up the time from there for each additional infusion. I might have give this more time in the future.
