Tea Review: Chota Tingrai Green Tea Fine (Mana Organics)

Chota Tingrai Green Tea Fine
Mana Organics
Type: Green
Origin: India, Assam, Chota Tingrai Estate
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of licorice (when the package is first opened), oats, and spicy pepper.

The infusion is light golden-green with a savory and nutty aroma.  The taste is savory, green and astringent with a long dry finish.

Beyond the first infusion, the savory taste faded while the green notes became more prominent.  The astringency was a bit too much for me at a 2-3 minute steep and enjoyable at a 1 minute steep.  Shorter steeping times also resulted in a greener liquor.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
