Episode 246: Chun Mee

After that last green tea blend I tasted, I felt the need to get back to basics. And since I haven’t had an unflavored plain green tea in a good long while, I’m giving M&K’s Tea Company’s Chun Mee a try.

It’s not a bad tea, but it’s very mild. There’s a faint aftertaste reminiscent of leeks or seaweed — it’s pretty vegetal. Green teas are usually like that, so it’s not surprising. If you’re looking for something less robust or sweet for a green tea, give this chun mee a shot!

Episode 352: Imperial Blend

Someone from Wooree Tea in New Zealand contacted me and sent a sample of their Imperial Blend to try on the show. I was very intrigued, mainly because this is a South Korean tea (and I’ve never had South Korean tea). Thanks for sending this so I can squeeze it in before the end of the show!

After a not-so-great green tea recently, I’m glad to have something to really reset my palette. The taste on this is nice and smooth with some buttery sweetness reminiscent of young steamed veggies like green beans. Great mouthfeel, though I don’t know how well this might stand up to multiple steeps. Either way, this one’s a winner!
