Enjoying my last cup of this tea.

Even though this is what is considered a lower grade of Sencha, this tastes quite a bit different from the Sencha teas that I’ve tasted.

It has a vegetative quality to it… but there again, it is a different vegetative quality than I’m used to. Usually, I either find a tea to be quite vegetative=grassy or it is vegetative=steamed (or) buttered vegetables.

I don’t know that this is either of those… even though I am noting a soft butter-like note toward the end of the sip, kind of creamy. It’s very intriguing, and very tasty.

I really like this particular Bancha Tea. It is very pleasant and even calming. Nice.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 0 sec
Batrachoid

Sometimes I think vegetative leans towards aquatic plants like nori and wakame. Or swamp/rainforest mossy vegetation. Helpful? =)

Batrachoid – I don’t know that I would use either of these descriptions to describe it either… it’s sort of like a vegetable, but one that I’ve not tried before, if that makes sense… something very yummy, like a cross between a broccoli and an artichoke.

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!
