I am not one really for green tea but I have been on a Darjeeling kick lately so I just had to see how a green Darjeeling measured up. This particular tea is from the Singell Estate in India which practices organic and biodynamic farming. Not knowing anything about this way of farming, I just had to look it up and loved what I found. A biodynamic farmer looks at everything on the farm as part of a whole. They don’t use any chemicals but instead use natural composts to maintain the nutrients in the soil. Very holistic way of gardening.

The leaves in the this tea tend to be smaller with a few that stand out being almost an inch in length. The aroma is very fresh and lightly floral. Since this is a green tea, I went with the green tea settings on my IngeniTea maker with a steep time of 2 ½ minutes.

I was really expecting the liquor to be a lighter green in color, instead it is a very pale reddish gold. The aroma is faint but is decidedly grassy with floral overtones. I have to say that I am really enjoying the aroma and if the taste measures up I will be in heaven.

Now as I have remarked before I don’t like drinking my vegetables, that is unless you are talking about V-8. This green tea however is remarkable. It has a grassy taste which is very fresh and you can taste the flowers that come across in the aroma. This is a very smooth tea with a lingering sweet aftertaste. I think that I have finally found an unflavored green that I am actually enjoy. In fact, I find that I like it better than a lot of the Darjeelings that I have tried recently. This tea is definitely going on my list of ones to pick up for my own personal stash.
