Burnside Classic Spring Green Tea

description

The flavors in this green tea feel sharp and quite heady, attributed to the heavy roasting and pan firing it’s subjected to. Recommended if you enjoy a full-bodied and robust green tea.

the experience

liquor

aroma

Thick with notes of cooked vegetables and smoke in the attack and a hint of cream towards the back.

appearance

Light gold

taste

Intense vegetal notes dominate the palate throughout the length of the cup. The liquor starts out clean but turns brisk and smoky in the middle and astringent around the edges. Robust notes of grilled greens, seaweed, and smoke come through as the liquor flows to the back. These flavors do not linger long and turn quickly.

This is a very nice light green color when brewed. I love the smooth flavor. No bitter like you can get in some green teas. Very fresh, love the smell of the leaves. I would drink this any time of day hot or iced.

Smooth seaweed plesure

Likes : Great Aroma.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

A great, all-around, green tea even for those who are not overly into green teas, as long as it is not over-steeped in which case it can become very bitter. The taste is simple enough to drink anytime but is not mind-blowing. Smooth body and the seaweed reminds you of spring/summer holidays. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

This is very drinkable for a daily drinker, not super amazing or stunning, but fresh and pleasant. Reviewed as part of the Teabox subscription program.

This tea is very smooth with a mild astringency. It's a good green. Basic and very drinkable, but not exotic or different.

Burnside Classic Spring Nilgiri Green

Likes : Freshness.

Dislikes : No Flavor, Bitter if Over-Steeped.

This tea looked nice. The smell (cream, and seaweed) was a turn-off. It didn't smell bad, just, like seaweed. Perhaps I will grow into that aroma, but as of now, it's strange. The taste was that of underwater plants as well. The flavor is OK. I will definitely finish the sample, but more than likely not get it again.

Good for slow thoughtful sips

Likes : Freshness, Unique Flavor Profile.

Reminded me of the ocean but a little sweeter than briny. A great tea to drink slowly and savor.

Smooth tea....doesn't quite satisfy

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

Dislikes : Weak.

Best Served : Anytime.

Steep for exactly 3 minutes from 178 degrees to 181 degrees F. I found that 179 degrees F works best. Tea is smooth but far from satisfying. Color of tea after steeping, pleasantly relaxing

Slightly Smokey Green

Likes : Smooth Body.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Anytime, Afternoon.

Still drinking tea at work. Still not an ideal circumstance. Alas. This tea has a very pleasing yellow color when brewed, and a very light aroma. When the tea first enters the mouth it's sweet, with the tiniest hint of smoke after it's been swallowed. It's a very smooth tea. There's a bit of astringency, and the smokey-sweet lingers for a bit. It can be a bit bitter if over-steeped, which is fine in my case - I like it like that. The bite helps me wake up. I've been drinking this in the afternoon, but it could be drunk anytime.

I soak fresh tea tree leaves in hot water for 5 hours, then drink it. I drink around 1 liter of green tea water a day. Feels fresh and light all day! They have very nice offers on this site and the quality is great.
