Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Tea Forté
Organic green tea paired with fragrantly fresh citrus and the sweetness of wildflower honey. A delicious taste of desert any time of the day.
I’ve been trying a few teas from Tea Forté lately, and while many of them are very vibrantly flavored, I like that this one is a little more mellow. It has a very smooth delivery with very little astringency. It is a very soothing, very calming kind of tea.
The green tea base is a Sencha, and it is light and sweet. It isn’t what I would call vegetative, in fact, I’m having difficulty detecting any grassy tones to this whatsoever. I brewed it at a relatively low temperature (165 ° F) so that may have something to do with it.
The lemon is beautifully represented in this cup. It is a bright, sunny lemon-y taste, but without the sour pucker. It has a light sweetness and yes, there is tartness also, but, it isn’t a strong sour taste.
Another delicious tea from the new Organics Line from Tea Forté!
