From What-Cha

A smooth and fruity green tea with a clean and delicate taste, one of the best teas to come out of the Azores.

Produced exclusively with the best tea buds and leaves; those found at the top of the plant. The tea is picked during April and May as the Azores experiences unique climatic conditions during these months which impart unique characteristics on to the tea.

We are proud to source all our teas from The Azores direct from Gorreana Tea Estate, famed for being Europe’s oldest tea estate having been setup in 1883. Gorreana Tea Estate are dedicated to producing premium quality loose leaf tea without the use of any pesticides or chemicals.

Tasting Notes:
- Smooth and delicate
- Nectarine taste with an apricot finish

Origin: Gorreana Tea Estate, Sao Miguel Island, The Azores

Mild fruit and a touch of malt. An apricot note comes out in the drying finish. I found this tea to be somewhat lacking in flavor without a longer steep that also draws out the astringency.

Ahhh… So nice to relax with a cup of tea after a long day of being in the kitchen. I generally crave green teas more in the evening, and I remember seeing Oolong Owl’s review of this and thinking it sounds amazing. The leaves are light and fluffy and they vary quite a bit in size; their color is a muted grey/green. Dry scent is hay and an almost vinegary tartness.

Hmm… This is fairly tasty, but I was hoping for those lovely nectarine notes that Owl described. The beginning of the sip is mostly straw/hay and a touch of grass. The apricot (and dryness) starts to come out near the end, and the aftertaste does taste like fresh apricots. Overall, it’s tasty enough, but I was expecting more fruitiness.

Interesting. I have the Pekoe ( not the OP) from this estate. When I brew it right and don’t overleaf it it has these lovely peach tones. I might have to try the green when I see it again. I usually see it bagged here but it might still be worth a try. You could try a shorter steep time. I usually brewall my greens no matter what style I brew them for around 45s.
