Tea Review: Green Tea (Zealong & TeaGschwendner)

Green Tea
Type: Green Tea
Origin: New Zealand
Product Description:
Zealong’s organic Green tea is a smooth, silky liquor, with a rich taste of floral notes, toasted chestnuts and a subtle sweet finish.

Zealong teas are hand-picked by only the top three leaves, are certified organic, and grown in the Waikato region in the North Island of New Zealand. Known for its unique climate and growing conditions, these teas are truly special and has won many international awards.
Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2-3 minutes

The dry leaves have a sweet, green, and nutty aroma.

The light yellow-green infusion has a sweet, nutty, green aroma.  The taste is sweet and green with notes of sesame and cooked edamame.

This green tea is very approachable with a nice light flavor when steeped for 2 minutes.  Steeping for 3 minutes brings out a mild astringency for those that prefer their tea with a bit of a kick.  Overall, the taste is pleasantly mild, mellowing with each infusion.

This tea was purchased by me.
