Monday – Green Tea / Day 2 of Lion’s Tea Challenge
Smells like rice and green tea, very promising.
Medium temperature water, let it steep while I went to put a load in the washer, came back to find very astringent green tea. Oops, guess I oversteeped it. This is completely my fault, but I feel this is not a very forgiving tea bag.
Anyway, other than a bit of bitterness and the astringency , I really like the light rice flavour. I’m not a fan of the green tea base used in cheaper grocery store teas, but I knew that before I bought this. I definitely taste grain and rice, maybe lightly toasted. I would not buy it again, but brewed correctly it would be enjoyable for those who like bagged green teas.
Flavors: Astringent, Grain, Green, Rice, Vegetal
