Taster’s Review:

I had my reservations about this Everyday Green Tea from Rington’s Premium English Teas.  I think that by now, I’ve shown that I’m a little less than enthusiastic when it comes to bagged tea.  That said, I do occasionally find not only what I’d deem ‘acceptable’ bagged tea but what I might even call tasty!

This is one such bagged tea.  Sure, I’d be happier if this were a loose leaf tea.  But, for a bagged tea, this is pleasant.  It’s tasty.

To brew it, I heated my kettle of freshly filtered water to 175°F and put one tea bag into a mug.  Then I added the heated water and let it steep for 2 minutes.

It tastes like ‘green tea.’  It’s smooth, sweet and buttery.  It has vegetal notes that are a little grassy and a little like lima beans.

The tea is not bitter but there is a fair amount of astringency to this – much more so than I’m used to experiencing with a green tea.  It starts out rather subtle and it develops and now that I’m halfway through the cup I’m finding this to have a dry, astringent finish.

Overall, this is alright.  It isn’t something I’m likely to stock in my pantry but it’s not something I’d refuse if I were offered it, either.
