drank Sencha Lemon by The Tea Spot
54 tasting notes

I am not quire sure how to rate this tea.
The fragrance most certainly is of pleasant nature, even though one might feel inclined of suspecting that cheap lemon myrtle was used instead of lemon essence or zest.
The Sencha itself seems very astringent, very bitter and heavy on its tannins.
The ginger, very frankly speaking, only gets its way through to the taste buds because it is mentioned on the label of the packing. The warming nature of this spice used for this particular blend does not even come close in any way to what is available on the Chinese market. In China Oolong teas flavored with ginger are very popular. Especially during autumn until spring as it is warming the drinker’s throat all the way down to the stomach.
In Japan good quality Sencha is mostly the beverage of choice during breakfast due its awakening nature.
The tea leaves for this blend however fails to lift up the spirits of the drinker and therefore proofs itself to be pointless (…like caffeine- free coffee) to me.
