Spiced Green Tea Review
A very enjoyable and tasty Green Tea
from Adagio Teas
Summary : Not your garden variety green tea, this one
is tasty with a moderately strong flavor. If you are new to drinking
green tea, this is a very good tea to start with.
Review : Of all the teas in the world today, green
tea is by far the most popular. And due to it health benefits, green
tea just continues to gain in popularity. Now, I'll be truthful here.
I've never really been fond of green tea before. The green tea I've had
in various chinese restaurants and such has been, well, a bit lacking
in any sort of distinctive taste or flavor. However, before trying this
tea, I never really had good green tea before, either. So, when I gave
this tea a try, I was quite open minded about it - as I wanted the health
benefits of green tea too!
The first thing that impressed me about this tea was the aroma. Straight
out of the nice little container that Adagio packages their samplers
teas in, it was obvious that this was going to be a very different green
tea. The tea had a powerful, rather spicy aroma about it.
Moreover, I was very impressed by the size of the tea leaves.
Other green teas I've seen (the bagged type), have been full of tiny
tea leaves. It doesn't take a genius to realize that these leaves are
essentially the "left overs" - so I was happy to see the quality leaves
that Adagio Teas put into this tea.
And the taste of this Spiced Green Tea was not disappointing, either,
I'm happy to report. Unlike other bland green teas I've tasted at various
restaurants, this tea had a very strong, but rather pleasing, flavor
about it. And make no mistake, the flavor of this green tea is very distinctive!
Adagio Teas says this tea has a light taste about it and is a good tea for new "green
tea" drinkers. Well, I can see where this would be a good green tea for
people new to drinking green tea, but light flavored? Hmm...can't really
see that. Compared to any other green tea I've tried, this tea packs
quite the taste to it - which to me is a good thing of course! About
the only thing "light" about this tea I found is it's pretty light green
Overall, I was quite happy with this Spiced Green Tea. While it may
not be my favorite tea in my cupboard, it is one of my favorite green
teas. So, if you are new to drinking green tea, give this a try. The
tea has a nice, distinctive flavor to it and in no way compares to the
rather bland green teas found in most chinese restaurants (which generally
use bagged bigelow/stash/celestial seasoning green teas).
Recommendation : A very tasty green tea that is especially
well-suited for people who are just beginning to drink green tea.
Tea Information and Brewing Instructions
- Tea Reviewed : Spiced Green Tea
- Manufacturer :
- Available from :
- Type of Tea : Green
- Leaf Type : Loose
- Date of Review : January 21st, 2006
- Tea Rating :
- Brewing Instructions : Pour 6 ounces water
that has a temperature of 180 degrees (not boiling!), over about
1.5 teaspoons of green tea leaves. You want to use more than
1 teaspoon of leaves with this tea because the leaves are quite
large (which throws off precise teaspoon measurements). Let steep
for 3 minutes. I steeped mine for 4.5 minutes by accident and
it still tasted great! So, for a stronger, more distinct taste,
brew for a longer period than 3 minutes.
