Pascoe's Woodlands Special Winter Frost Green Tea

description

The make of this green tea is similar to the Japanese Hojicha, except it's more vegetal than nutty in taste. It's a mellow green tea that's gentle on the senses and one that will be loved easily by those who prefer lighter teas.

Alerts mind after lunch

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Afternoon.

As foreshadowed in the description, it is pan fried. Slight vegetal taste and bold. Absolutely for a connoisseur. Steep less. Or may get little strong flavor. Perfect for drowsy afternoons, to wake up mind in a healthy way before exhaustive meetings.

Didn't live up to my expectations

Best Served : Evening.

The dried leaves are small, twirled, and very dark in color. Emerald hues rise out from a very roasted appearance. An earthy, mossy smell abounds the dried leaves with faint hints of smoke and sweetness. The liquor is a pale green with hints of yellow, emitting a somber, earthy aroma. A smoky taste is rounded out by vegetal tones. There is a mellowness to the taste with some astringency on the back end. The taste is unmistakably similar to some of the more smoky green Chinese teas like Chun Mee or Gunpowder. I was very excited to try Pascoe's Woodlands Frost Green as I adore the Glendale winter flush green, but the experience left me disappointed. The appearance, aroma, and taste just gave off this murky vibe and lacked any sort of crispness. Generally I associate fruit/perfume/caramel tastes and aromas with less oxidized frost flushed tea (white, green, oolong), but this was so strongly vegetal and smoky that it lacked all the sweetness/savoriness of winter flushed tea that I've come to love. It was sort of like a very light green version of a Lapsang Souchong--though that's a bit of an exaggeration.
