Tea: Organic Ever Green

14 Mar

I must have had the sniffles when I had this Organic Ever Green tea from David’s Tea, because from the dry tea I expected mint and pear…neither of which are listed as ingredients in this tea.

Instead, this tea is a combination of sencha green tea, cranberries, blueberries, caraway seed, mustard seed and sea lettuce.

When steeped up it smelled sort of savory, and sort of berry-like (although perhaps having read the ingredients I could smell the berries since I knew they were there).

The first sip was delightful. The second sip left a strange taste in my mouth. The third taste was delightful again.

I really don’t know how to describe this tea!

I am not a big green tea fan, but this tea only has a little of the tell-tale bitterness or grassyness that I usually associate with green teas. I added sweetener, and it was sweet – but not in the sense of making it a sweet tea. The flavours are complex; to the point that I really don’t know what to tell you about this tea. I can’t say “if you like berry teas, get it” because there isn’t a distinct berry flavour. I can’t say “If you like green teas it might be a nice change” because it really doesn’t have a lot of ‘green tea’ flavour.

My conclusion… try it – but get a small amount, because I suspect that this might be one of those “love it or hate it” teas. As for me, I’m undecided…or at least on the first cup.
