I got this tea in an assortment of “mystery” teas from What-Cha. I find this to be an…interesting tea. I didn’t pick up the fruity or citrus taste that the bag claims, or that other reviewers tasted. Instead, I got a taste that reminded me of the pu’ers I have tried, but much fainter. I’ve found I don’t like pu’er teas at all…but that taste in this green tea was actually interesting.

I do think I over-brewed this one a bit—either my water was too hot, or I let it steep too long. But I am enjoying it, because it’s interesting but not overpoweringly interesting! (Ha.)

I gave this one a second go, with cooler water and longer steeps. I did get some citrus finish in the first two steeps, but after that, the fruitiness got a lot less clear. I’m not really getting a distinct mango vibe like others have, but there is a fruitiness kind of buried under the more grassy flavors of the green tea throughout. Still not the biggest fan, but we’ll see what I can do with the final session’s worth I have from my 10g sample.

Nice, light green tea. I’m don’t normally drink green tea, so not too much to say — there’s a light green mango flavor which you can’t ignore once you notice it. Refreshing.
