Where To Buy: Gorreana
Plantações de Chá Gorreana is a tea plantation in the Azores, Portugal.
Gorreana’s single estate organic green tea, grown on the island of Sao Miguel (known as the green island) off the European coast, is a unique premium green tea that indulges even the most sophisticated palates. Green tea can be enjoyed as an afternoon tea up to a evening tea, since it is naturally low in caffeine and rich in both amino acids and antioxidants. So, enjoy a cup of Gorreana’s single estate green tea today, and taste why it’s the only place in Europe green tea has been grown for over 125 years!
It seems I have a lot to say about this tea. For many different reasons. One being…the last Hysson Tea I tried from a different company was down right awful. This one from Gorreana was breath of fresh air (which I will get to in a moment!) Another reason I have quite a bit to say about this one is that I tried Googling it and there weren’t a lot of Tea Review Sites that have reviewed it as of yet. Here at SororiTEA Sisters we are very excited to be one of the first! I will say that our friends at Steepster have a few people sipping on this one – in case you were interested.
Like I said above…I was surprised, happy, and satisfied with this one. Maybe the word “Satisfied” down plays it a bit…maybe “delighted” would be a better word. Regardless…this was tasty and different…here’s how it struck me…
Dry – this smells fresh and airy. It also smells slightly of herbs but also of veggies. Not overly-so but there are notes present. After infusion was complete this smelled mellow but refreshing or spring-like even.
The taste was wonderful. Very pure, quite crisp for a green, although it had hints of herb and vegetal flavors as well as being a little nutty – yet sweet – and slightly juicy but also a little chewy, even! This was the surprise for me! I was surprised but totally stoked that this had a slight chewy quality to it. You don’t get “chewy” often in a green…not this kind of chewy, that is. This is really special!
The after taste is a little floral and a little vegetal and herbally. The more I drink this one the more I like it! Very nice, indeed!
