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!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
