Recent Tasting Notes
Green apple, a nice green base (for short steeps only-will get very astringent and bitter if you brew for 3+ minutes). Slightly creamy, fruity, natural sweetness in the base. It makes a nice coldbrew if you can get the timing correct. I found more than once I ended up getting a lot of astringency before the majority of the flavour had steeped out of the leaves.
Flavors: Fruity, Green, Green Apple, Sweet, Vegetal
(coldbrew review – 1 taster package in 400 mL cold water, 30 minutes)
Thank you to Love Some Tea for the free sample. I reviewed this one before hot and think it deserves a coldbrew since there is some clear sky and sun out today.
Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Earth, Fruity, Smooth, Sweet, Thick
Thank you to LST for this free sample! This is an unbiased review of one of their teas called “Kind Green” (queued tasting notes from yesterday)
One sampler package (~5g?) and 600 mL cold water in a gravity steeper for 12 minutes.
-Notable aroma of tropical fruits
-I can taste a smooth green tea base, not overly vegetal but a well-balanced green
-Flavours of tropical fruits (papaya is the strongest, followed by pineapple, apricot, pomegranate)
-honey note in the aroma
I enjoyed this coldbrewed. I imagine it would be good hot, but the flavours would be overpowered by adding anything like milk. This gets quite bitter and unpleasant if you brew it very long. I find this green does not do well if coldbrewed more than 10-15 minutes.
Flavors: Apricot, Fruity, Green, Honey, Pineapple, Tropical
Lots of fruit flavours, but the green base gets bitter on longer steeps (eg if you coldbrew) and will be bitter in subsequent steeps. I do like this blend the best out of all of their flavours because of the complex combination of fruit flavours, however I really don’t approve of bitterness in teas.
Flavors: Berry, Cherry, Fruity, Guava, Stonefruits
First and foremost, thank you to Love Some Tea for sending me a generous amount of free samples to review.
The green tea leaves are very high quality, and you can taste it. I coldbrewed half a sample pouch 10 minutes (after 20 minutes it gets bitter, aim for 10-15 minutes) in cold water and am now drinking a wonderfully fragrant, fruity green tea that tastes like passion fruits. I can taste some hints of mango, apricot, papaya, and some indistinct floral notes. I really appreciate the green in the base. I’m not a green tea person, but I find this one very drinkable, although can become bitter on longer steeps.
I would recommend this brewed hot or cold, although I really like it iced.
Flavors: Apricot, Floral, Fruity, Green, Passion Fruits, Tropical
