Steepsterites, I think I have been struck with a fit of madness. The taste of this sencha is eerily reminiscent of orange creamcicles – almost anyway, it’s not quite creamy enough. I keep being tempted to commit the ultimate heresy of adding milk to this green(!) tea to see if I could get that creamy-orange flavour to come out to play.

…Yeah, I know, it would likely just make the tea taste aweful.

Can’t remember if you do rooibos or not, but if you do, Franklin Tea Company had an orange rooibos that was a great creamsicle clone, minus the dairy.

Eh… maybe not… some people add milk to green chais. You might want to bump up the leaf if you try it to say 4.5tsp per 6oz of water at about 160 degrees or a min and a half.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
