I love tea and that’s not an understatement! I love new and original and after tasting so many teas there is a line that is drawn between good, great and inspiring. I love inspiring teas, they have to be natural and they have to taste good, represent their name and taste like it. There is nothing wrong with a hearty tea as well with abundance of ingredients. TasTea introduces a fine line of unique teas that are not just thrown together but you can see the thought process that went into make the blends. I appreciate that and I think you will as well.

56% Green Tea
Green Yerba Mate
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
Prior to brew: I may be taking this section out because the prior to brew scent is and can be very mis-leading and one should never buy or disregard a tea according to the scent prior to brewing. Either way for now this is a sweet scent that smells like almond and coconut similar to that of an almond joy candy bar.
Brewed: Once brewed this tea is a very light Amber hue.
Scent: The scent is still very sweet with the coconut prevailing (because it was brewed and that flavors come out more).
Flavor: Very light flavor on the tongue and each sip just enhances the next. Slight bitterness from the green tea but the balance is good between herbs and teas.
Sentiments: This is a very light and refreshing tea, there is a very very slight bitter taste which will be from the green tea however the sweetness of the coconut and the almond make it a very light and delightful green tea.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “8”.
