The Organic Savory Green Tea Experience: A truly 'green' Green Tea!
This organic Green Tea is reminiscent of well-prepared leafy green vegetables in a way unlike most teas we've tried. If you love being green and eating greens, then this is your tea.
Tasting Notes: savory-sweet, citrusy, nuanced
Rich, brothy notes of braised greens set this tea apart. Think: braised mustard greens and dandelion leaves topped with toasted walnuts and a squeeze of lemon. Far from in-your-face, it's gently bittersweet and softly aromatic… like leafy greens done right.
Ingredients: Organic Chinese Pekoe green tea.
- 1.5 tsp Per Cup
- 3 Minutes
Savoring Your Experience:
This tea is so enjoyable to pair, it's absurd. From a breakfast of rice porridge with braised greens to a breakfast of herbed spinach omelet and from a fresh wild salad to a roasted wild pheasant, it stands strong and supports the flavors of the meal.
Make sure to rebrew this 'patient tea' (that's tea talk for 'easy to brew multiple times'). Three infusions is ideal.
The unflavored Green Tea spectrum goes from seaweed-y to grassy to vegetal to nutty/roasty to sweet (e.g., floral or fruity). Most Japanese Green Teas are made from the steamed, needle-like leaves of cool-weather tea varietals, landing them in the seaweed/grass range. Many Chinese Green Teas are rolled and then roasted, placing them in the nutty/roasty range, or baked, usually resulting in a sweeter flavor. Made from the twisted sets of two leaves and a bud, this savory, vegetal Green Tea sits right smack in the middle, making it an approachable tea for those who love either style.
