Tasters Review:

The Persimmon Tree Tea Company is one of those companies that has really grabbed my attention lately.  Their flavor selection is really wonderful and I love their little tin/tubes, too!  I also really like their website and labels.  I just think they are an all-around good company!  If you have the opportunity to check them out – please do!

As far as this specific tea goes…

Prior to infusing…the aroma of this reminded me of my Grandfather because it smelled like his Almond Pistacho Ice Cream he used to eat!  As I infused this it morphed to mostly Caramel scented with a little green tea scent underneath.

I did sip this right away after my infusion was complete and thought it it was pretty good…a nice combo of green tea and caramel.  But as the liquid cooled at room temperature for a little bit I noticed the magic happen!   The Caramel Flavor doubles!  It was very yummy!  The Caramel is genuine and helps cut the craving for sweets, at least for me, it did!

This is really terrific!

The caramel is center of attention here but the green tea flavor is noticeable in the background, too, and there is a little Rooibos sweetness coming thru but not very much but that’s ok because I wouldn’t change a thing about this Persimmon Tree Tea offering!!

Tasters Review:

I haven’t been this excited about a plain green tea in a LONG time!  I swear Shanti made this tea especially for me!  So I will take this time to say THANK YOU Shanti Tea!!

Darjeeling Green Tea from Shanti Tea is a medium strength green tea but it’s pretty equal in all aspects of grassy, buttery, sweet, juicy, mouth-watering, floral, and it’s VERY smooth.  I guess one could say that this Darjeeling Green Tea from Shanti Tea didn’t play any favorites when it comes to one taste over the other and I am fine with that.  Everything works out and plays nice with each other.   There is a pleasant aftertaste which really makes me smile!

This is a really nice tea!

I REALLY REALLY LIKE THIS TEA!

HEY!  Did I mention, I like this tea?
