drank Green Bouquet by Kusmi Tea
911 tasting notes

I was a bit scared to try this one since I can be iffy with flavored greens and I had such a not fun experience with the other “Bouquet” tea Kusmi has, the Bouquet No. 18 or something. But this actually isn’t bad. It’s not great or anything, but the bergamot flavor is mild and blends well with the heavier type of whatever green tea Kusmi uses. There’s a bitterness that seems to build as I keep sipping but I attribute that more to the tea base than the flavoring and it isn’t entirely unpleasant. It’s not really bitter and not really salty. It reminds me of the taste of sea salt, which I find nice, especially when compared to the regular Morton’s table salt. Most Chinese greens give me table salt salty – this gives me a flavorful sea salt taste, softly kissed with a hint of slightly floral bergamot.

It’s not stellar or anything, but it’s respectable and I don’t hate it. I don’t love it either, but it’s not near as bad as I was fearing so thumbs up.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
