I’ve tried a few of Adagio’s fruity herbal teas and this one is my least favorite so far. I opened the bag and was overpowered by the smell of cheap perfume – way too much “natural apple flavor” added into this one for my liking. I’m usually a green tea person and this was a failed attempt at trying something new so take may review with a grain of salt.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

The taste was good, but it seems quite strong. I noticed that if I drink it too fast (three cups in an hour) it makes me very anxious. I’ve never had tea do that before.

I was only able to get four 30 second steepings out of it, with most Sencha’s I’ve been able to five 30 second steepings.

Unfortunately this is one of my least favorite Sencha’s form O-Cha. It just tastes ‘dull’ and seems to lack the pleasant full-bodied/grassy taste that I’ve become so fond of. Still better then most of the stuff I’ve tried out there, but at this price I would have preferred the slightly cheaper Kagoshima Sencha Yutaka Midori more.

Probably the best Sencha I’ve ever had, I love how it tastes. I also like how it turns a cloudy dark green once steeped, which makes it visually appealing. Very relaxing and amazing to drink.

Well it looks like I have a new personal favorite. This particular Sencha has that full-bodied/grassy taste that I’ve become fond of and visually it’s a cloudy dark green.

It can get a bit ‘iffy’ if steeped longer then one minute, though.

I was expecting a bit more considering its price, to be absolutely honest. I’ll try making it a bit stronger next time around, this is a very light leaf after all.

I did have to play with the temperature and timing a bit to get it just right. Remember not to steep it for more then one and a half minutes, otherwise it will taste like lima beans.

Got this organic Tamayokucha in a 100 gram loose leaf container labeled “Organic Sencha Green Tea.” I dropped Two Leaves and a Bud an email and they quickly verified it was the same thing.

The first steeping does have a unique bite to it, but the second and third are smoother. I liked it.

A very smooth tasting green tea, loved it.

Somewhat expensive, not something I could afford to drink daily.

The white stems of the leaf are left attached and it has a unique overtone that I can’t quite describe… Perhaps ‘herbal’?

As of late November (last night, actually) this tea was renamed from “Monk’s Bliss” to “Frosty Garden.” I assumed this was done to help others differentiate between it and Mellow Monk’s “Blissful Buds.”
