My first cup of this Taiwan Green Tea from Nuvola Tea was a very surprising cuppa! The flavor was so delicate and sweet! Mere hints of vegetation, mostly what I tasted was an almost candy-like sweetness with a soft mouthfeel and a very delicate quality to it.
I had expected a stronger flavor from it, though, so I decided to see what would happen when I brew the leaves a second time, and this is where the flavor intensified for me. This cup brought forth the vegetative notes that I expected. The second cup proved to be broth-y in texture and taste (imagine a vegetable broth that was made from leafy greens), with a slight (barely there, but it’s there when you focus on the sip!) citrus-y tone that expresses itself toward the end of the sip. There is a light astringency toward the tail, and the aftertaste is delicate and sweet, reminiscent of that first cup that I so enjoyed.
I find the flavor to be very crisp and pure, much what I’d expect from a green tea, but that first cup is different enough from other greens to make this tea one that you want to TRY! I like that it’s sweet, and that the slight tangy citrus note contrasts with the sweetness just enough to enliven the palate. It’s a very refreshing cuppa!
Another EXCELLENT tea from Nuvola Tea. Definitely one of the best pure green teas I’ve had in a while from a company that continues to impress me with it’s fine quality teas!
