Apple Green Tea – Yamamotoyama – 2/6/14
4 minutes, 175 degrees.
I also forgot I was steeping this. I’ve been scatterbrained today with trying to get all of this work done but also drink my teas.
The dry smell from the opened package is very very apple. Nice bright and crisp and a little reminiscent of apple candies. Steeped the apple candy smell is a bit stronger and when I sip without sugar added, the tea is mostly green tea but at the end of the sip there is a little nip of the apple flavour that can’t be missed.
Sweetened, this tastes exactly like a liquid apple jolly rancher. So very very similar. It took me a bit to figure out what I was tasting since I haven’t had a jolly rancher of any flavour except the red kind in a long time but it is definitely apple candy I’m tasting, not really true apple. That doesn’t mean it’s unpleasant by any means, I like it, but if anyone is looking for an apple tea that tastes like actual apples, this one isn’t it.
Coordination sheet Critical is ready for first signing! Now I need to do all of the stupid text attachments. Coordination sheet Less Critical just got the work amount doubled so I now need to do that. Stupid being inquisitive and asking if their request was complete or if they needed THIS piece over HERE too.
