The aroma of the dry leaf is distinctly grassy/vegetal. The brewed tea has a much softer scent and I pick up on very few of those strong grassy and vegetal tones that I noticed in the dry leaf.
To brew this tea, I used my Breville One-Touch. I measured out 2 bamboo scoops of tea into the basket of the tea maker and then poured fresh, cool water into the jug. The settings: 175°F for 1 1/2 minutes.
The results: The liquid is quite pale. A very pale, clear green. The aroma is soft, as I already mentioned. The flavor is really quite pleasant.
It’s sweet and smooth. There is very little astringency to it. It’s an energizing drink but it is also soothing and relaxing to sip. It’s as if it revitalizes you from the inside out. It doesn’t get you jumping but gives you that gentle nudge to get through the rest of the day.
The sip starts out sweet with hints of a honey-like note. I then notice a slight buttery/nutty note. It’s vegetal but not bitter. The vegetal tones are something between sweet grass and mild steamed veggies. The aftertaste has a light, citrusy note.
This is the kind of green tea that I would like to have in my pantry regularly for everyday drinking. It’s a smooth, sweet and even flavor, something that tastes great before, during or after meals, and all those moments in between. It’s a really enjoyable tea. I found it to be a really refreshing iced tea as well.
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!
