Green Tea Taste

January 27, 2012

Many thanks for all recent comments and follows.

One of the recurring themes over the last few days, which is worthy of comment, is the taste of Green Tea.  Many tea drinkers have commented that they like the taste of green tea but it is hard to get used to or they say they don’t like the taste at all.  Green Tea is an acquired taste and is quite astringent.  In our sister blog we explain the mechanisms of astringency.  The best way to describe astringency is “mouth drying” or “pungent”.  Any Tea, by its very nature, is going to have a level of this astringency and is necessary for a well balanced tea.  Too little astringency can be as bad as too much.


At InnOrbit we have the added advantage of having other ingredients in the recipe.  Liquorice, for example can balance out dry, astringent notes or even sour tastes because it adds a touch of sweetness.  Likewise there are other elements like Ginger and Holy basil which add aromatic elements.  We developed Spider Web Profiles for our teas to give an idea of the balance of taste in our variants.

Getting the taste profile balanced whilst still being good for your health is the job our Product Design Department…..we hope they got it right!

Here is an example of the Young&Fun infusion:

    Yes green tea is an acquired taste just like my other fave Ginseng tea. Having some local honey around helps to knock the edge off sometimes. Great post, thank you!
