Overall this is a very surprising mint blend. Normally a sencha base would turn me away however it really pairs well with these flavors. I found that the peppermint and spearmint combined really nicely with spearmint being at the forefront of the mix. I really enjoyed this as most mint teas are peppermint based which made this one stand out from the rest of the pack. The little touch of vanilla flavoring is just there in the background to add a smooth finish which I believe cuts the bitterness of the sencha as well as the mint. As the tea cools the vanilla flavoring does become more pronounced which is tempting me to try this one iced once its warmer outside. :) All in all, if you enjoy mint teas this is a MUST have for your cupboard.

This is a Chinese sencha which is a bit of a different animal than traditional Japanese sencha. It’s sweeter and a bit buttery. It’s a base tea of choice for me.

There is a such thing as Chinese Sencha!? I wonder if it’s pan fried. Neato.

Interesting, I wondered why there were precious few sencha blends I took to – this is likely the root of it. I appreciate you letting me know as I will me more likely to try your sencha teas … not that I need much encouragement to buy more tea. :)
