I’ll admit it . . . I’m a green tea junkie. I love it. I love the crispness you can pull out of green teas that I don’t always get from other types of teas. Green tea has a fresh tasting quality that I adore and a buttery richness/smoothness that my taste buds crave. I gotta say, Planters’ Green hit all of those notes and more! I am a fan!
The tea can be bought in pyramid bags or loose leaf. I had the bagged version, which is fantastic for work. Once I got to work, I headed to the break room, poured some water from the coffee machine into my mug, tossed the bag in, and began checking emails. Somehow I wound up getting lost in my daily routine and completely forgot I had started preparing my morning cup. Worried that I had oversteeped and there would be a bitter brew awaiting me, I cringed as I took my fist sip.
The description of the tea says it will leave your palate fresh and clean and that is exactly what happened. They definitely deliver upon that promise. There was absolutely no bitterness whatsoever (even after getting distracted) just that rich clean flavor that I have come to love about green teas. Some green teas also have a vegetal or grassy flavor profile. This one doesn’t have that but leans more towards having a really subtle flavor profile. I can see this being a fantastic tea to have after a large meal.
I can see this being a great to go tea. The one that you know will be forgiving . . . even after you forget about it and go along with your day . . . its a winner in my book!
