Taster’s Review:

When I opened the pouch of this Organic White Monkey Green Tea from Kally Tea, I could smell the vegetative notes immediately, along with a sweet note, and a hint of floral notes in the background.  It smelled really lovely, like a sunny spring morning.

The flavor I first noticed with my first sip was a sweet, nutty note.  Having tried a few White Monkey teas in the past, I found myself trying to recall if I normally experienced a nutty flavor.  The aroma of the dry leaf suggests a somewhat leafy or grassy taste, but, it’s not there.  I don’t get a strong “vegetal” note here.  In fact, I think that this would be an excellent tea for those who are new to green tea and just a little bit intimidated by the grassy taste of some other green teas out there.

The floral notes are also not as pronounced as I expected them to be.  Instead, I’m tasting a sweet, buttery and nutty flavor at the start of the sip.  When I slurp the sip, I even pick up on some hints of cacao!  Lovely!

Overall, this is a pleasant, delicate tasting tea.  Toward the finish, I notice a slight fruity note – it is sweet and complements the nutty tones well.  A nice complexity, and I like that I’m not picking up on any bitterness or astringency to this.  It’s just a mild, relaxing cuppa!
