VSRT (Very Special Rare Tea) Tea Bag Tea & Loose Leaf - GREEN
Grown at just over 4,000 feet elevation in the highlands of Ceylon, this organic green tea is well twisted and curled. The leaf unfurls when brewing to yield shades of olive green and a light liquor with a bright, golden infusion. There is a slight edge to the tea, and hints of lemon and hay make it pleasing and yet astringent. The finish is clean, leaving the palate fresh. Organic Ceylon Green complements rich food well, cleansing and refreshing the palate.
Leaf color shows blues, ash, purple, mottled greens and the occasional show of beige. It is shotty and tightly curled. The open half leaf is khaki-olive green. This medium-full bodied tea has a pleasing colour mix of orange-gold and yellow liquor. In aroma, it grassy and floral. This is a forward tasting tea with lingering but not unpleasant bitterness. An appetite enhancer and a cleansing tea.
