Taster’s Review:

This Organic Green Tea from Revolution Tea is a very pleasant cup of green tea!  It offers much of what I’d expect from a green tea – a fresh, lush flavor with a sweet, vegetative tone.

I didn’t learn that this was actually a blend of several different teas until after I had brewed it and consumed about half of my cup.  But now that I have learned it, and am tasting it … it is really obvious to me that it is a blend.  The vegetative tone reminds me of a Idulgashinna … but also a Sencha … including the hint of bitterness of a Sencha.  I like the bitterness here, it offers the palate an interesting contrast from the sweet grass notes.

The vegetative tones taste like a cross between kelp, steamed vegetables and freshly cut grass.  My first couple of sips were especially strong, reminding me of seaweed – which is something I don’t typically like, but, I did not find the seaweed-ish flavor off-putting … instead, my palate felt very refreshed after those first few sips.

By the time I’ve consumed half a cup of this tea, I find that the flavors tend to become more even … smoother.  It is still sweet and vegetal, but, the distinct flavors of the blend become more melded into a unified flavor.  I like the second half better than the first half … but still found the whole cup to be very enjoyable.

This is a really nice tea.  I’m not about to say it’s my favorite, because it isn’t, but, I enjoyed drinking it, and it is a tea that I wouldn’t mind drinking again.  This would be a tea that I’d like to take traveling (as opposed to relying upon a hotel to provide decent teas – you know they never do!) or any time that I need a tea for on the go.

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
