TenRen Green Tea – A “Budget” Vacation
Dax: I’ve come to the conclusion that not allChinese green teas are instant winners. Usually I flock to teas like this Ten Ren green tea because of their roots in the history of all things teasan. This was a diferent game here. Tenren green tea isn’t bad by any means, yet it lacks the greenery I demand in Chinese tea. Also, some sort of rotten twang was left in my mouth upon swallowing. I asked if I could get a witness, and Mike said he been done known about it. Watch for the aftertaste.
Mike: Tenren green tea does not kill the game, unfortunately. The Ten Ren black tea featured in a previous tea reviews post killed the game but not its green tea counterpart. While the former had nuance and flavor, Ten Ren Green Tea offered a lackluster performance. I would equate it to a basketball player on a breakaway laying the ball in the hoop instead of reverse dunking the sucker in. Nothing subtle about it, this Tenren tea offers a similar taste to what any standard green teahas to offer with a little more umph in the back of the throat. Save your money and go with a less expensive green tea.
