Trying Allegro green tea

Posted by wanchan on November 7th, 2013 filed in tea

Those of you who know me are probably aware that I’m a bit of a tea drinker. My usual routine at work includes a cup of black tea in the morning (usually Adagio’s Irish Breakfast blend), and another cup of either a black or green tea in the afternoon – whatever I feel like that day.

Yesterday, a coworker gave me a hit from her stash: Allegro’s Himalayan Green blend. I was quite impressed – a strong, refined aroma, and a fairly robust flavor for a green tea. Nothing as “robust” as a roasted green, but a bit stronger than many other green teas I’ve enjoyed. I have resteeped it this morning, and it seems to have produced a pretty passable second cup after an extra-long steeping.
