Taster’s Review:

This is a really decent, bagged green tea.

This single state green tea from India has a sweet, vegetative taste.  I would classify this vegetative taste as more grassy than steamed vegetable, although I can taste a slight “steamed spinach” kind of flavor as well.  It is a very pleasant taste with no bitterness, and very little astringency.

As the tea cools, I notice that the grassy flavor intensifies, although it never becomes a bitter grassy taste.  It remains sweet, but as the grassy flavor grows stronger I notice it becoming slightly sharper as well.  Still a pleasant cup, but, I think I prefer it when it’s hot.

Besides the obvious convenience of the tea bag, I like that Choice Organic Teas supports the Jane Goodall Institute, and that some of the proceeds of the sale of this tea is donated to the institute.   And of course, I love that this is organic.

A good tea that is also good for the earth!
