Deha Classic Summer Green Tea

description

This is a hand-rolled, organic green tea from one of Assam's leading green tea producers. Its flavors are quite raw and thick but not in an imposing way. Just right for slow sipping in the afternoons.

Full-Bodied for a green tea

Likes : Smooth Body.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Morning, Evening.

This green tea has a warm, rounded flavor as opposed to the more crisp, fresh flavor of other green teas. It's a bit bitter if over-steeped, but not terrible. It's a wonderful green tea to try if you're most used to drinking black tea as this tea has a bolder flavor I think.

I actually ordered on a trial basis, was actually very glad to see complimentary packs with the order too. Good packing, wonderful flavour and quality. I have finally found a site from where I can order with confidence.

Very good green tea

This aromatic spring green tea is very tasty with a lovely earthy mouth feel!n I enjoy it from the aroma down to the final cup, although if steeped a bit too long it can become astringent! Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

Great for a dark, green tea.

Likes : Unique Flavor Profile.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

A very nice and strong green tea. The tea is great for if that's exactly what you're looking for, but be careful not to over-steep. The flavor can get excessively bitter. When steeped properly, expect it to be very strong, exactly how I like it. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

True green tea flavor.

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma.

This reminds me of summers on my grandfather's farm with the aroma of fresh grass and hay. I like the fresh taste of this tea with true green tea flavor. Reviewed as part of theTeabox subscription program.

Wonderful light-tasting green tea

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning.

This tea is great. It's very smooth and easy to drink, with just the right hint of dryness. It has a mild flavor--but not weak. I wouldn't say it's complex, but that's certainly not a bad thing.

Quality organic green tea

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Dislikes : Bitter if Over-Steeped.

Best Served : Morning.

Very decent green tea, slightly bitter, somewhat grassy. Can be steeped 2-3 times quite easily, yielding sweeter, more delicate drink.
