4 Tasting Notes
This is probably one of my favourite greens. It is so unique! One of my friends attributed it to a bowl of chicken soup. That hearty satisfying contentedness one can only get from soup on a cold day. It feels thick in your mouth, but there is a soft quality to it. We have pretty mineral rich water living close to the Rockies, but for some reason, this tea softens the water.
The biggest flavours I get from this one is are grass and earth. There is a slight maltiness to it that I attribute to laoshan tea. Definitely not as pronounced as the black version.
It definitely embodies the spirit of spring.
Flavors: Freshly Cut Grass, Garden Peas, Malt
My first tea review ever! The first time I tried this tea was in Toronto. It was a bleek overcast day and I really needed a liquid pick me-up! Coco-lemon thai was recommended by the sale associate, especially as a latte. I sipped this beauty while shopping and was definitely not dissapointed. As a Latte, the coconut and lemon flavour are so present. I find any coconut infused tea is greatly enhanced with milk.
As a standalone, this tea definitely goes down pretty smooth. With strong lemon flavour and a lingering coconut aftertaste, I’d imagine this tea would be better served cold on a hot summer’s day.
Cons: I find this tea pretty chalky on the first steep. It’s pretty over powering and takes away from my overall enjoyment somewhat. The lemon is also overpowering at times. It definitely could be a more balanced tea.
Overall I like this tea and would totally recommend it to burgeoning white tea drinkers!
