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.
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!
