When I first opened the pouch of Mountain Roasted Green Tea from Shan Valley, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I’ve tried many roasted Oolong teas, however, my experience with roasted green teas is much more limited.
But this tastes more like a roasted green Oolong than it does a typical green tea to me. In the place of the usual or expected vegetative tones of a green tea, I taste a delicious nutty quality.
The texture of this tea is really nice – like velvet! It tastes very smooth, and feels very smooth to the palate as I sip. As the name suggests, it has a delicious roasty-toasty taste to it, with hints of smoke that mingle with distant floral notes. It is sweet and nutty, and there are some creamy butter-like notes to the cup as well.
A really delicious, unexpected green tea. I like it!
