Barnesbeg Special Summer Green Tea

description

Indian green teas suffer in reputation for being a bit bitter. A few stand apart, and one of them is the Barnesbeg estate. A floral aroma, lovely vegetal notes, and a sweet tea, it checks our boxes.

Light vegetal green

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

This tea is on a lighter side, with slight astringency and vegetal undertones. Low in caffeine and not stimulating. I got the best brew from using a bit more leaves and less steeping time

pleasant flowery aroma

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Afternoon.

I am not a fan of green teas, but this one surprised me! Vegetal tones are not overwhelming, nice flowery aroma and medium body with mild mouthfeel and subtle astringency. Refreshing and overall pleasant experience (in certain way resembling black tea aroma). Remember not to oversteep :-)))
