These little tea leaves that have been shaped into little rings are so adorable! Before brewing, I looked at these Daughter Rings from Nature’s Tea Leaf … marveling at how the tender Green Tea leaves were carefully shaped into perfect little rings. It’s fun to watch them brew too! They slowly unwind, as if they are dancing in the hot water.
The tea brews to a very pale yellowish-green color. The flavor is very agreeable, with a delicious vegetative tone with sweet notes of fruit … I want to say it tastes a bit like sweet apple melding with notes of mild vegetable. There are also very faint floral tones to this … like a background note of flower. It is a light, invigorating taste. It’s on the mellow side.
As the tea cools, I find that the flavor changes slightly, becoming less sweet and slightly more astringent. It never becomes bitter, but, there is a slight shift in flavor. The astringency here is slightly dry and cleansing. The aftertaste is sweet with notes of fruit.
A very pleasant tea … it’s a little different from other green teas out there, but, similar enough to other green teas that it’s easily recognizable as one. A nice tea for those times when you want something just a little out of the ordinary.
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!
