Glenburn Classic Spring Green Tea

description

It’s been awhile since we featured a green tea from Glenburn estate but this one caught our attention. It’s a top notch green tea with a complex and striking flavor profile that features both pyrogenic and aromatic notes, something we haven't previously come across in a Darjeeling green.

the experience

aroma

Thick, slightly sweet in the attack followed by notes of cooked asparagus.

Pale yellow

taste

The liquor is immensely complex and tipped with balanced notes of charred greens and jasmine. With notes of pan-fired leaves in the mouth attack, the liquor starts out sharp and abrasive. More mellow flavors of jasmine and cooked greens emerge in the middle and tone down the intensity of the liquor, finishing on a clean note.

COMPLEMENTS

Greasy food and dense cheeses.

dry leaf

Strong pyrogenic qualities; marked by notes of smoke, grilled greens, and peat.

Medium sized, well-rolled, blackish-green leaves and buds.

slight veg flavour. complex taste-sweet aftertaste. floral aroma accentuated. not exactly a green tea in its truest sense but an exceptional darjeeling tea nevertheless. a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
