This tea was part of a limited edition Christmas Set which was yet another gift to my mom from her co-worker (dude, she likes CAWW-FEE!). Although green tea’s many health benefits would do her a world of wonder, my mom isn’t the type to take the time to prepare such lovely infusions for herself. Another gift bestowed to me. Yay!
Wet: Cooked spinach. Literally. I’ve enjoyed this numerous times before and could never put my finger on where I’ve smelled this before. Until my dad made spinach on the stove and BOOM! It hit me.
Taste: Like I drank the spinach water – in a good way. I find that this tea “dries out” my mouth – is that what is meant by astringent? (I always use spring water when I prepare coffee or tea.) After drinking about 5 out of 8 ounces, I feel like whatever leftover “flavors” in mouth are gone. It would be nicer if this green tea was soothing – I feel the astringency is a bit too much and I have to drink plain spring water or something to coat the throat.
Overall: This made feel A LOT better after devouring a Popeyes 4 Piece meal. I don’t plan on repurchasing this. (Would I be able to?) It isn’t the kind of green tea I could enjoy day after day. I’d save it for days when I know I’ll be eating loads of food.
Flavors: Astringent, Drying, Spinach, Vegetal
