Time for Tea Please?
Today I’m sipping on Summer Green a unique green tea , sent to me from The Jersey Tea Company.

Within their tea fields they aren’t just used to encourage plant growth but also the bio-diversity of the land and wildlife. Grown without herbicides and pesticides to ensure what your drinking is purely just that of the tea.

Let’s Get Brewing!
For this blend The Jersey Tea Company purely uses there own organically grown green tea.
Upon opening the pouch you are instantly hit with a very earthy aroma which isn’t what you’d necessarily expect but with the growing conditions it’s smell is unique to this with only and underlying smell of “green tea” .
I’m intrigued by how dark the tea leaves are in its dry state. However as they brew the colour lightens.
Whilst brewing the aroma of the blend doesn’t massively change from its dry state. If anything the aroma becomes more distinct with showing it’s a green tea.
The brewed liquid is that of a yellow colouring a lot more yellow than a mustardy green.
Let’s Get Sipping!
First sip and I have to say I’m very surprised. It doesn’t like any other kind of green tea that I have tried before.
The “typical” green tea flavour is there but only as more of a background flavour. This blend has more of an earthyness to it. It’s like a Pu Erh type tea where it has a almost aged tinged to it.
This can sort of be explained based on the way that the tea is grown. Due to it being located near the cost so takes on the marine / salty earthy richness from flavours around the area.
The tea also has a natural sweetness which put balanced any bitterness that you can find within some green tea blends. It’s also light and refreshing upon the palate which makes it an enjoyable sipping. Which for me is amazing as I’m very hit and miss when drinking green tea to wether I enjoy it or not but this one.
The tea is too intriguing not to keep on drinking with its unusual depth of flavour which is unique to the Jersey Tea Company.
Happy Sipping 🙂
