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.
