Taster’s Review:

This Valley Green Tea is the last of the four teas from Shan Valley that I’m tasting, and I’m very happy to say that I found enjoyment from all four teas.  These teas from tea farms in Myanmar are really quite good, I’m glad I had the opportunity to try all four!  I don’t know that I could select a favorite of the four because I found something in each that I liked.  These teas from Shan Valley are really good, and I recommend them highly.

I really like this Valley Green Tea.  It’s one I’d call a “daily go-to” type green tea – it has a very pleasing flavor:  not too overpowering, just a fresh and calm sort of taste that I like to sip when I just want a good cup of green tea.  Not something that I need to sit and think about … just something that’s easy to enjoy.

The flavor is very uplifting and it has more of a classic green tea taste:  fresh, leafy and vegetative.  The vegetal notes are somewhere between grassy and very lightly buttered beans, leaning just a little more toward the grassy flavor.  I like that even though this has more of a vegetal taste than a “toasted nut” type flavor that I noticed in the Mountain Roasted Green Tea, the “green” flavor isn’t overwhelming.

It’s just a soothing, enjoyable cuppa.  Great to drink with meals because it doesn’t have any strong, detracting flavors.  It has a nice, smooth texture and a refreshing taste.  I especially like this one iced with a thin slice of lemon.  Or try brewing up a pitcher of it and squeezing in some fresh grapefruit juice – delicious!
