Shire Green / Geek and Tea

The moment I set eyes on the title of the tea (before even reading the name of the company) I knew they were referring to The Lord of the Rings.

This Canadian based company is owned by a lady who is a botanist and a geek who loves tea. Pairing the geek with the tea is a win in my book.  If you are a geek you have to give their website a gander.

Now all that being said I’m disappointed in the packaging. One should never package in plastic. Especially clear plastic. Tea can be highly influenced by other aromas around it. And if not sealed tightly will quickly lose its freshness. I can tell just by smelling the dry leaf that it has been sitting a bit too long. It still brews up fairly well.

A bit astringent and a bit lax on the grassy flavors but I intend to save this company and order from them to give them a nice fresh taste.


Here’s the scoop!
