When I opened the package – it smelled so fresh! Like freshly cut grass kind of fresh. Very vegetative, very sweet, very clean and crisp and … fresh.

The brewed tea has a lighter scent, still very vegetal and fresh smelling, but, not quite as prominent an aroma.

The flavor of this reminds me very much of a high quality sencha, but it is less “brothy.” It still has a very pleasing mouthfeel and a thickness to it, but it is not as thick or soup-like the way I typically notice from a top-notch Japanese Sencha. The flavor is vegetal, but not quite as much as I expected based on the fragrance of the dry leaf (I expected this to be highly vegetative, but, this is a light vegetative taste with lovely flowery notes)

This is really lovely!

It looks very good and makes me think of The Tao of Tea Sencha or Sencha Shinrikyu tea. All are very good teas, I was fortunate to receive sampler set from Leah Tea Ware etc. Very good review.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
