37 Tasting Notes
A lovely bagged tea with a strong, comforting fragrance. Tastes quite good upon resteeping, though a third resteep isn’t really rewarding.
I’ve yet to go crazy about this one like my friends do, and I think it’s just because I haven’t got it right yet. It does smell quite good and filling, but on the taste side it’s a little weak. Visually, it’s quite beautiful, though, and again it’s great to sniff. I’ll add more thoughts when I’ve tried it out more.
An all right novelty tea. I like fruity green teas, but this one was a tad too sweet and a bit odd-tasting. It had come in a bargain packet at my local David’s, and I can sort of see why. Had my non-tea-drinker brother try it, and he said he liked it, but only because it didn’t taste like tea. Exactly.
An incredibly aromatic tea that to the taste is a bit more like a weaker apple juice than cider or tea, but nonetheless I drink this one compulsively, and the place I make it in always starts to smell like a tearoom.
This is one of my all time favourite teas, and not just from David’s. I love going to Japanese restaurants, and they always serve this variety of green tea before each meal. I make a cup of David’s genmaicha when I need a positive pick-me-up after a stressful day.
