Not my cup of tea
on 1 September 2017
The packaging is nice, a nice tin that I don't really need, but it's nice. Inside the tin is a foil pack of green tea.
The taste of the tea is OK, of course everybody has different preferences and some people my love this, I don' love tt, it's just OK. There is the 'fishy' taste you get with green teas, I quite like that, it's not too bitter, but I suppose comparatively this tea is not expensive and it doesn't taste as good as the tin makes it look. You might love it, I don't.
What I really don't like is the tea powder. Along with the quality tea leaves there is an amount of fine tea powder, what I unkindly call the sweepings, it's probably not of course, but even using a very fine infuser the resulting tea is cloudy and has 'floaters'. that I don't like at all. I have taken a couple of photos to show what I mean. Looking at the good reviews here, I expect I just got an unlucky batch.
My search for an everyday green tea goes on!
