Contrasting to this morning's first tea review is this Chinese green tea. These Organic Emerald Pearls from Mighty Leaf hold a wonderfully light flavor with all the hidden subtleties inherent in Chinese green teas.
Longjing is a celebrated tea. It's often considered one of the best teas from China. This Longjing is another tea I obtained at the World Tea Expo direct from a manufacturer, and I think I would be happy to buy this direct.
When most of us think of green tea, we think of Japan. It's Japan's unique more grassy tastes which draw us to their teas. Perfection is an opinionated ideal, but this Kagoshima Sencha from Harney & Sons tastes like what I think a Japanese green tea should.
As one of the most established loose leaf American tea companies, Harney & Sons has produced some spectacular blends over the years. I'll spend some time highlighting a few of my favorites coming up, but we'll start with this Cranberry Autumn black tea, a very popular member of their infusions.
Frank has once again created an interesting twist on something old. I have had a great many forms of Earl Grey. From one blended with white teas, to one using premium leaf grades, to one using more or less oil of begamot. This Knave Grey blend from 52teas blends with coconut for a unique take on this classic.
